I don’t know if I have ever mentioned it on here or not, but I really enjoy video games. Usually I play a certain game for an ungodly amount of time for about a month or two. Then, the game gets boring and I move on to another game. One of my favorite types of games are baseball games. I enjoy them for a different reason than most people do. I enjoy baseball games in which I can wear a lot of different hats. I can manage, be an owner, and be a GM. I don’t generally go for all the fancy graphics and things of that sort. As long as it is a hard core statistical game with great managing and GM modes, I’m hooked.

Some of the games I have enjoyed in the past are Tony Larussa Baseball II, Front Page Sports Baseball ’98, Sammy Sosa High Heat Baseball, and Baseball Mogul. Those games had me hooked for hours.

Those games, while good in there day, pale in comparison to my new baseball game love. This game is so in depth and deep that I am hooked. The game I am referring to is Out of the Park Baseball 6. This game has so many cool features. Don’t believe me? Read about them here. Some of the features include a rule 5 draft, amateur draft, and manager personal life feature in which you date, get married, have kids and may some day see one get drafted.

While this game does not focus on high quality graphics, it more than makes up for it with a small learning curve, while keeping the challenging factor. It will test your ability to draft, trade, and manage your way to the top. I highly recommend this game if you are a fan of managing the Cubs or any other team.

Note – This game when purchased does not come with real players. However, if you would like information on how to get them, drop me a line and I will assist. If you have this game already, please let me know what you like and dislike about it. Also, if you have any other good baseball recommendations that are not the cliche MVP Baseball, or All Star Baseball 2004, please let me know.
