Video games give fans the chance to emulate their heroes in a way that we all love. Whether you are swinging the bat to score home runs or sitting in the office and building a dynasty, video games give you the chance to step into someone else’s shoes and be a star.
Here is a look at the top three baseball video games that are out right now for you to enjoy.
3. Super Mega Baseball 2
A new release and follow up to Super Mega Baseball, which received great reviews, and sales went so well that the developers brought out an extra edition. This game is a very fun, easy to play arcade style game that you can pick up and have a quick play, without needing to immerse yourself for too long.
This is a very casual game, aimed at the casual baseball fan with simple controls and online gaming if you wish to go up against your friends. There is no license for this game, however, so you won’t be able to see the names of your superstars on there, but that doesn’t stop this from having very solid gameplay and some rather cool graphics.
2. MLB The Show 19
If you are wanting a step up in terms of realism then MLB The Show 19 certainly offers that. This is the officially licensed game of the MLB, allowing you to play as your favourite players and teams in an attempt to take them to glory and win a World Series.
Fans of the New York Yankees will no doubt be heading straight for season mode on this one, in an attempt to replicate the current season they are having. The Yankees look on course to win the American League at the halfway stage and are gearing up for a big push at winning the World Series for the first time since 2009. With the baseball season really hotting up, interest in the Yankees is going to be huge.
1. Out of the Park Baseball 20
This is a real game for the baseball purists out there, but a fantastic one nonetheless. You don’t swing the bat yourself here, this is a management sim very similar to the Football Manager series, which has, of course, received critical acclaim.
Here you have to put your baseball skill and knowledge to the test in an attempt to build a team that can bring home the World Series. The choice of challenge is yours, head over and play as one of the teams which are close to winning and bring in the last couple of pieces to complete the puzzle or find a team struggling at the bottom of the standings and turn their fortunes around over a number of years.
If you are looking to immerse yourself inside a baseball game with a huge range of stats, great gameplay engine and the ability to keep you hooked and going back for more, this is certainly the baseball game you need this season.
