    Default MLB Playoffs are here! List your favorite baseball games

    Ive been trying to get into the World Series Baseball games on the Genesis, but the behind the plate view is something Im trying to get used to. I prefer the old school view from Baseball (NES) and the old RBI games. Its supposed to be one of the better baseball games. For some reason the batter/pitcher keeps going into auto play and that is very annoying.

    For now Im sticking with Tommy Lasorda Baseball. I really liked Baseball Stars and Baseball Simulator on the NES. Just more used to the fast and simple gameplay.

    Back in the day I played the MVP games on PS2 a bit. I thought they were pretty good

    Not the "biggest fan of related baseball games" but i can all ways go for a round of baseball stars 2 and super baseball 2020 via the neo-geo.Since there arcade style it makes them very pickup and play.Beside i've bought baseball stars 2 twice once for my neo-geo mvs and again on switch digitally.

    I have Baseball Stars 2 for NES CIB. Its supposedly one of the harder to find licensed NES games. Unfortunately it is also very hard to find anyone who is willing to play a 27 year old sports video game with me.

    I would go with Tecmo Super Baseball for the SNES.

    While it doesn't have a MLB license, so no actual team names, I never noticed this as a kid. However, it does have a MLBPA license and includes digitized images of the players, which is pretty neat for 1994.

    The game had a catchy rendition of 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game' as it's title theme and the crowd noises were what what would expect for a baseball game of the era. However, I'll always remember the 'Home Run' noise as the ball streaked out of the play field. Also, the use of the SNES's Mode 7 for fielding was pretty neat. I much prefer this to the overhead view of most baseball game where your players shrank to the size of ants. And the bullseye on the ground to locate where the ball was going to fall was also a nice touch.

    Overall, I think it's the best baseball game on the SNES. Sure, Ken Griffey Jr.'s Winning Run looks and sounds absolutely amazing, but Tecmo Super Baseball came out right during the MLB strike of 1994 and it was a great way to still get your baseball fix.
