I'm loving genre month -- would happily see it extended to cover more genres.

Darryl is a great host, and there were really interesting points made in the discussion.

I agree that sports games don't simulate the sport per se, they simulate a sports broadcast. The games generally show the play from the same camera angles and perspectives that you see in a broadcast, and have commentary and even recreate the interstitial stuff between plays, like player celebrations, replays or crowd reactions.
