Sports Game
A game based on a sport. Simple, right?

Well, there are basically two types of Sports Games:

  • Simulation, the game that tries to get as close as possible to the real thing. The Madden series is a prime example, as are most of the sports titles from EA Games.
    • A subclass of these are management simulators, in which instead of taking control of the players you're in charge of the club itself with control over such things as transfers and tactics. The Football Manager series is currently the most popular example.
  • Arcade-style, the game that puts the emphasis on fun (and breaking the rules). NFL Blitz and NBA Street fall into this category.

Sports games are older than grit. One of the first video games ever was a tennis sim.
