I've been playing alot of NBA 2k11 lately in My Player mode. For those who haven't seen it you basically make a player and play through his career playing through initial try outs and training camps and trying to get recruited into the NBA. You build you players skills and stats as you play and every game you only play your one player which forces you to play in position and defend and play proper basketball.
Playing this has really really made me wish a developer would make a cricket game that includes a mode like this. Cricket seems an ideal sport being so stats driven to make your own player and build him up over his career earning spots in domestic cricket through try outs, rewarded with IPL contracts and eventually aiming to play for your country.
Has anyone else ever wished for a game like this? Focusing on one player seems like it would make it alot more realistic as you would be more cautious and worried about your average (and skill points, in nba2k11 bad shots/passes whatever lower your grade for that match, cricket could do the same thing).
