i just realized that all my favorite baseball games are the one screen baseball games that dont scroll
5200 Realsports Baseball
Intellivision Major League Baseball
Starleague Baseball on the Atari 800
Earl Weaver Baseball on the Amiga
and yes i do kind of like NES Baseball

someone should make the ultimate non scrolling baseball game on a newer system lol

A terrible, horrible, no good, very bad game.


Yes, but what you have to understand is people like me grew up watching the Cubs, so this was considered normal:

Maybe, but when the AI of your baseball game makes Charlie Brown's Little League Team look like the Yankees, something went wrong.

Unfortunately, when you're talking the NES, which in my opinion easily has the best baseball game library of any system, it becomes borderline unplayable. Still it'd be good to break out every few years for sure though.


Ditto that. Spot on post. Exactly what I would’ve said, but you said it first.
