6 Gaming Sports We Wish Were Real
Sports are great. We love the likes of football, basketball and even cricket. But sometimes you just need a bit more excitement, the kind that only fictional sports can provide. Never mind the fact that they’re brutally violent, physically impossible or entirely illegal – these six sports are ones we wish we could see cross over to real life.
Final Fantasy X’s Blitzball looked a lot more exciting in cutscenes than it played – we’d just like a videogame as action-packed as that. Having a real version would just be absurd – our hearts couldn’t take it.
There’s something about the steely aesthetic of The Bitmap Brothers’ Amiga classic that really appeals to us. Oh, and there’s also the crunching tackles and bizarre on-field bonus elements, as well as excellent team names like Lethal Formula and Violent Desire, which sound like metal songs.
With apologies to the likes of Lewis Hamilton, Formula 1 just isn’t exciting enough. Sure, F1 allows use of the Drag Reduction System to aid overtaking now, but let’s be honest – we’d much rather see drivers attacking each other with high payload missiles, performing death-defying leaps and doing barrel rolls.
