Best Sports/Racing Games of 2020
Honorable Mention: MLB The Show 20
Editor in Chief Ed McGlone: Major U.S. sport video game adaptions have had distinct highs and lows over the last console generation.
The exception perhaps is the MLB The Show franchise which has consistently put out a product that attempts and usually succeeds in genuinely improving and enhancing the experience year after year.
MLB The Show 20 introduced a wide swath of improvements last year. The dated PCI was tweaked to provide more useful information and help make hitting less of mystery and more consistent. Fielding was improved to be more realistic and fun.
And Franchise mode, yes Franchise mode always the red-headed step child of any sport video game, actually got meaningful improvements with the addition of full minor league rosters and custom team support.
Whether it’s gameplay tweaks, improvements to the game’s core modes, or just completely new ideas, developer San Diego Studios does incredible work with the franchise.
Fortunately for baseball fans everywhere, MLB The Show going forward will be multiplatform, meaning anyone can experience the fruits of the dev team’s labor.
