Not sure if this game is gong to draw enough attention to really deserve a catch-all, but the Latest Out of the Park Baseball game is a really great game. This is pretty much my first foray into OOTP baseball, as I was more of a fan of the replay series, Diamond Mind. Back when OOTP was just coing out, it just did not produce realistic enough stats to worth my time, and the GM AI was not all that great.
But I decided to give the game a try this year, as DMB has gotten stale, and I'm not a fan of where the product is going. I was pretty blown away by the new UI and the depth of the game. I have not delved in enough to really generate realistic stats and test the AI, but as a human vs. human league game, this is going to be a blast. Right now I am working my way through a 1975 season, with the goal of recreating a new history of baseball without free agency. I predict that the Expos are going to be damn good.
Check out Todd Brakke's (ubrakto on GWJ) review of the game on. If you are interested in a new text based baseball sim, this is a nice game to delve into.
I'm in a fictional league with Todd and Bill Abner, but would also like to find a nice league based on real players. Anyone else playing this game?
