    I can't remember what it is called but that Volleyball game that you play using your feet would be an epic sports game.

    I want a tether-ball game. One of the sports played in wheelchairs would also be cool.

    Is hopscotch classed as a sport? They could make it using a Wiimote or PS Move to simulate throwing the pebble and an old-school dance mat for doing the hopscotching.

    Some of the sports are played in my school...and even my country have two number one players of the two sports (squash and badminton). If table tennis can be given its own decent game, I'm sure the same mechanics can be applied one these two sports as well. :)

    i want to see this sumo game in japan i can't find it anywhere on the net??? anybody ever seen it. What about a Lacrosse game would be great. I'd also love to see a mountain biking game, have you seen them courses and the endurance courses look amazing. Murderball would be crazy. I'm going to say a game what exists but i'm going to say the Olympics, but with everything i mean seriously they have 4 years to do it, i don't see why we always get a rubbish selection of events, and not a full blown lot of events, the gymnastics has so many events they can do and we get hardly anything,

    As far as I know, there is an NCAA Lacrosse game. EA make it, apparently.

    Turkish Wrestling! Right!? Guys, y'know...guys? Anyone? ANYONE!?

    When I saw the title, I said, "There HAS to be Kabbaddi in this!" I've played Kabaddi with my friends and it is down-right confusing but still pretty fun. .. Long time no article, Chad Brohammer.

    I played some (field) hockey while in the Netherlands. It's really cool.
  • kkinight - August 6, 2013 2:03 a.m.

    Paintball would be nice :D
  • sephex - August 6, 2013 3:44 a.m.

    There was a paintball game on the Xbox. Greg Hastings's paintball tournament or something.

    Fencing sim. Go.

    Loving all the hilarious player na-... hold on *squints* Is that...? I didn't know Satoru Iwata played Buzkashi. Not that I know ANYONE who plays Buzkashi. Also if you want your sumo wrestling fix, play Twilight Princess. It just like tossing goats, apparantly.

    Maybe... Wonder if he's ever appeared in our features before now...

    Had to join just to say there already is a Gaelic Football Game, imaginatively named "Gaelic Games Football", featuring the voice of Mícheál Ó Muircheartaigh himself! (that'll only mean something to a fraction of Ireland but it's a big deal trust me!). Wasn't great... Also it's played in Australia too, sorta, if you include AFL, though they're quite different. Aaaaaaand Hurling is a way better Irish sport ;)
  • GR_AndyHartup - August 6, 2013 12:01 a.m.

    Nice - thanks for the info. I looked into AFL, but saw that there was already an Aussie Rules game. Can you get it in the UK? Fancy giving it a go.

    There has been a rugby game just released, Rugby Challenge 2, although again it does pale in comparison to FIFA. It can't even get the full licenses despite not having EA to rival it.
  • GR_AndyHartup - August 6, 2013 12:06 a.m.

    Yeah, I've played most of the recent rugby games (because I love rugby), but they all genuinely felt like PS2-gen FIFA. I do think there's a market for a proper rugby game, based on Aviva Prem, Pro-12 and Super Rugby. While I think devs struggle to juggle budget restraints with creating convincing 15 vs 15 AI behaviour, and find it tough to map rugby's complex moves and tactics to control pads, it is do-able. Personally, I think rugby-followers would react better to a Management sim, which - in theory - would be easier to make and will pack in more realism and detail...

    The sport that really needs a game is Murderball AKA Wheelchair Rugby. I loved watching it in last years Paralympics and it would make a wonderful XBLA game
