Sports game

From Example Problems

A sports game is a computer or video game that emulates the playing of traditional sports. They are extremely popular, the genre including some of the highest-selling games.

Almost every familiar sport has been modelled with a game, including baseball, soccer, American football, boxing, golf, basketball, ice hockey, tennis, bowling, rugby, hunting, fishing, etc.

Some emphasize actually playing the sport, while others emphasize the strategy behind the sport (such as Championship Manager). Others satirize the sport for comic effect (such as Arch Rivals). This genre emerged early in the history of video games and remains popular today and is extremely competitive, just like real-world sports.

A number of games series feature the names and characteristics of real teams and players, and are updated annually to reflect real-world changes.
