Sports simulation video games
Basic Information

Sports simulation video games tend to try and keep things as realistic, yet reasonably fun, as possible. While the player might not experience wild dunks in basketball games, or flaming pitches in baseball games, the video games that form this genre often find unique ways to endear their game to the audience playing it. Sports simulation video games often involve contributions from real players, or experts in their field, whether it comes to game consulting or providing motion capture animation.

This genre is not typically known for being good to pick up and play like the arcade sport genre, and these types of video games are often catered more to hardcore fans of that particular sport, who both know how the game is played, and can understand the subtleties and accuracy of the simulation presented to them.
