Video games and sports go together better than peanut butter and jelly. Especially for us sports fans who just quite couldn't make it to the pros, be it that "knee we blew out in high school" or otherwise.
We get to transport to a dreamland where we are our idols. You get to come home from stocking groceries all day and break the single-season record for touchdown passes, topping the evil Tom Brady. Or you set the textbooks down for "just an hour" to "be like Mike" and break Karl Malone's heart again. So lay the sticks down and remember the cyber athletes that make you remember your first Stanley Cup or that time you won the Heisman.
