The Top Ten Best Sports Video Games


Best Sport related game EVER made. Madden could take a few pointers from Boomer and the gang at 2k. - javananthonydavis

ESPN NFL 2K5 is also really awesome, but I think Madden is pretty good too. Their both super awesome. But anyways, I love football, so I love both games.

This is the best football game ever made wipes the floor with madden any day

Better than any madden to ever exist it has a sense of aliveness and I wish it killed madden

2 WWE SmackDown! Here Comes the Pain

This would smash a lot of PS2 games on a large scale, this is one of the greatest of all time, it totally deserves a remake on PS3 - roblist
