A sports video game is a computer and mobile game that simulates the performance of sports. Most sports have been recreated in games, including team sports, track and field, extreme activities, and combat sports. Some games focus more on actually playing the sport (such as FIFA, Pro Evo Soccer, and Madden NFL), while others emphasize strategy and sport management (such as Football Manager and Out of the Park Baseball). Some examples include Need for Speed , Arch Rivals, and Punch-Out!! , which lampoon professional football for comedic value.
This sport is as competitive, if not more so, than real-world sports. This type of video game has been popular throughout the history of gaming and is competitive like actual world sports. Various game series feature names and characteristics of real teams and players, which are updated yearly to reflect real-world changes. Sports games have been a part of gaming history for quite some time.
