    Is this a list from the UK and Europe? I think we need a new list just for North America sports games. At least maybe I can try a Rugby or Cricket game, since the Xbox One is regionally unlocked unlike other consoles.

    NFL Football & Magic Johnson's Fast Break on the NES. I don't expect much from NES sports games, but these are examples of bare minimum effort in 8-bit game design.

    The only sports games from EA and 2K that I'm willing to play is the UFC games and the WWE2K games and that's only because they have decent single-player modes and the micro-transactions aren't as bad aka not forced down my throat like a certain 2 from EA and a certain 1 from 2K.

    WCW Backstage Assault has to be hands down the WORST wrestling game EVER. I refuse to believe there can be anything worse.
    I genuinely believe it is worse than The Simpsons Wrestling.

    You had multiple games from the same series as well as titles that are not sports so here's a hot take for number one: NBA 2K20.

    Now the 2K games had been great since they first arrived on the Sega Dreamcast. Emphasis on had been. Since 2K17 when they made a habit of killing the servers to force fans into buying the current year's version NBA 2K had grown worse and worse. 2K18 clearly showed no effort was made. 2K19 was gimped by predatory loot boxes and microtransactions making the game virtually unplayable whether or not these were your jam. It was enough to get governments of the EU involved and 2K went all in, attempting to recruit children as their cannon fodder in a bid to force Belgium to bend the knee.

    After that fiasco and the news coming out of seminars on how to get kids addicted to gambling through the use of 2K's business model one would think they would shy away from it. Lol no, waka waka, My Team trailer gloated about the gambling aspects and 2K got utterly rekt for it. The Department of Justice Risk Assessment Team defines it as child exploitation. Even the box art is bad, AD looks like a pedophile on the cover. It got to the point the slot machines that even the paid for and professional shills admitted is gambling were removed in favor of a vault opening mini game. GDoing the math to get to legendary status and the prized card that is only available doing so would take thirty five straight days. That is if you did not eat, sleep, bathe, gave up work and school, every second was devoted to the game.

    Even that might seem reasonable if the game actually gosh darn worked, however it made Fallout 76 look like a polished patched gem Nintendo put out for their star lineup. Could not connect. Play way buggy, glitchy. Store worked fine, funnily enough. Patches over served to ruin the game further and gameplay is one thing you'd want to get right. But no, 2K only care about that sweet sweet microtransaction loot. Who cares if the game works or not? Well gamers care. They care very much. And reviews showing what a mess the game is and calls to fire Ronnie2K show that.

    I'm surprised that High Heat Baseball 2003 didn't make this list. The review for that game on Reviews On The Run was hilarious.
