Boy that looks like a spam title.
So, I got an xbox 360 my first console since... since... wow, ever. When I was a kid I had a vic-20 and c-64 instead of an atari 2600 etc. Always played PC games since then.
So I would like to pick up a couple sports games - one baseball, one foot ball. I understand vaguely that the latest titles are not always "the best". Also, I am cheap so I am happy to pickup MLB 2K8 for $10 instead of the new one.
My parameters: I like more realism, but not high level of console difficulty. Also, I will be playing my 6-year-old who I guess is pretty average for a kid who just blitzed through his first console game (Clone Wars: Republic Heroes in a couple weeks). I would also like a baseball game that has "Player upgrades" (or historical stats) available on line... although I suppose I will have to get an XBOX 360 live pay account for that.
Hmmm... I just realized that I might have to wait for MLB 2K12 to get Brian Wilson with a beard.
