Quote from: KyzBP on September 07, 2022, 06:30:22 AMGrim pretty much hit the nail on the head. I'd only add Axis Football 2023 (mostly made up of German, Italian and Japanese teams...kidding). It should release today. It's kind of like older Madden but is very modable and has a franchise mode. https://store.steampowered.com/app/2103640/Axis_Football_2023/
Quote from: KyzBP on September 07, 2022, 07:58:14 AMIt looks like the career mode will have both NFL and Euro style seasons. I'll wait a little bit and watch a let's play or two but I'll still probably pick it up for $20.
Quote from: Sigwolf on September 07, 2022, 09:09:20 AMFrom the management side, there is also Football Mogul.https://www.sportsmogul.com/footballmogul.htmlThey've been around a while, and offer earlier versions for free on the website to try things out.Also worth noting, all of their games are completely free for active military members, and 50% off for veterans.edit to add: There's probably a new version coming out within the next week or so.
Quote from: gregb41352 on September 07, 2022, 12:07:55 PMI haven't seen Pro Strategy Football mentioned yet. Solid game with previous seasonsand college available. $20USDhttps://store.steampowered.com/app/1527500/Pro_Strategy_Football_2022/EDIT: Nevermind. It was mentioned. I, apparently, can't read.
Quote from: Grim.Reaper on September 07, 2022, 05:11:07 AMIt depends on what type of American Football game your looking to play. Based on the type of games you mention, I am guessing you actually want to control the players and such but I'll list most of them anyways in case another type interests you as well. Just providing games that are still available for purchase as there are older games (i.e. Front Page Football) that would be on my list but you can't really purchase anymore and they might not fully work. If I had to choose one from each category, I would say Madden for Arcade, Front Office Football for management (Pro Strategy right behind it with Draft Day coming along), and ActionPC for season replay (others good too).Arcade TypeMadden - I know you indicated it being universally despised, but I actually enjoy playing it and this year's version is pretty good except with one issue. Currently there is too many interceptions happening but I expect that to be patched. Otherwise, pretty solid game in my experience. Think people hate on the game since it really is the only fully licensed game that dominates the market and doesn't take huge new strides each year. Can't wait until next year when they start releasing a College version again.Axis Football - Tried a version in the past, you can control things but felt a little off from being a realistic american football experience. New version coming out today, maybe it improves thingshttps://store.steampowered.com/app/2103640/Axis_Football_2023/Football Simulator - Haven't purchased this one, but recently came out. A little hesitant based on some of the feedback but maybe it turns into something worth trying.https://store.steampowered.com/app/1527500/Pro_Strategy_Football_2022/Legend Bowl - In the realm of sunday rival football. Decent game worth checking out.https://store.steampowered.com/app/2103640/Axis_Football_2023/Management SimulatorsFront Office Football - If your looking for more of a football management career sim, FOF has typically been known as the king. Kind of spreadsheet like, but very accurate representation. You manage a game, you don't control players.https://store.steampowered.com/app/547900/Front_Office_Football_Eight/Pro Strategy Football - If you have never tried this, highly recommend you do. Comes with fictional teams but really good modders release all the seasons with names that turns it into real life stuff. The new version is either coming out this week or next, really good game although has 80's type graphics. You don't control the players but instead call plays and such. Since you can't control players, This game is much lighter on the career side but some options.https://store.steampowered.com/app/1527500/Pro_Strategy_Football_2022/Draft Day Sports Pro Football - Decent game, although not as fully realistic as FOF. New version likely will be coming out in coming months.https://store.steampowered.com/app/1866710/Draft_Day_Sports_College_Football_2022/Draft Day Sports College - I like it better than the pro game, new version just came out. One of the few college games available.https://store.steampowered.com/app/2116250/Draft_Day_Sports_College_Football_2023/Season Replay GamesActionPC Football - One of my favorite games. Realistic coaching experience and you can purchase all the seasons. Little bit dated graphics but if you really want to coach, good option. The same game can play both pro and college seasons.https://dksports.com/football.htmSecond and 10 - Good game as well and comes with all pro seasons free and a bunch of college seasons. More based on board game but plays really well.https://www.secondandten.com/Strat-O-Matic Pro Football - Some consider it the gold standard. Solid game but doesn't tend to change much each year.https://www.strat-o-matic.com/product/strat-o-matic-football-2022/Strat-O-Matic College Football - Same comments as the pro version, you do have to buy separate version.https://www.strat-o-matic.com/product/strat-o-matic-college-football-2022/Data Driven Football - Interesting game and the author puts a lot of time in replicating stats. Based on a board game and pretty dated looking, but still fun.http://datadrivenfootball.com/pcgame.html4th Street Football - Based on baord game and a number people enjoy. For some reason could never wrap my head around it though.https://4th-street-software.com/collections/football-computer-gameInside the Blitz - Based on board game, another game that people seem to like but can't wrap my head around and not as full featured as others.http://www.insidesportsgames.org/inside_blitz.htmInside the Blitz 5D20 - New version of football, same comments as the other.http://www.insidesportsgames.org/5d20_football.htm
