Fast 5: Sports that should be video games

By Jon Robinson

Phil Dalhausser
It's been years since there was a beach volleyball video game, but the old depictions were lots of fun.
Tired of the same old sports on your gaming consoles? Here are some alternative games we’d love to see.

Beach volleyball: “Super Spike V’Ball” was a classic back on the NES, and I’ve been dying to play something as fun for years.

Water polo: I never knew how violent the sport was until my son started playing. It’s like rugby in the water, and I think it would make for a fun game.

College basketball: How can we go from two college hoops games to none?

College baseball: EA Sports tried it for a couple of years, and I thought it was great. I wish someone else would jump back in the sport.

Friday Night Lights: With so much hype around high school football, how about a customizable game that enables you to create your school and friends?

Each day this week, Jon Robinson is releasing his list of the Top 25 Sports Video Games Ever. Check it out here.
