ESPN story references General Manager (GM) Games

This week GM Games was contacted by Dave Wilson, College Football Reporter for ESPN. Our conversations talked about the history of sports sims, the differences between AAA sporting titles and sims, family and the current simulation replays of events lost. It was an honor for us to be considered for reference.

For the organization, being at this since 2011, it is a milestone to receive the acknowledgement of our effort as sports sim lovers. It is with pleasure to share the article from ESPN for our users and hope more people find their way in to simulation sport gaming.

“Sims are more about stats and strategy than they are about winning reflexes,” said Chris Valius, director of GMGames.org, which chronicles and reviews such games. “Sims tap into the curiosity of how teams are constructed and coached.” as per ESPN

Dave references and chronicles many of the sports simulation developments we have been including on our website for years. You will find these games under our categories either by sport or platform in our navigation menu.

Unfortunately, it is an odd time for sports considering the loss of march madness, delay of major league baseball, and the postponed NBA and NHL playoff schedule. Let’s hope that we get the real thing back as soon as possible.


For those indoors and are learning about these games, you will find a list of free games here to try. Please join the GM Games discord server and tell us about your favorite games or career stories.
