What do people want out of MLB 16: The Show?

By on @richgrisham

MLB 15: The Show was not only one of the best sports games of the year, it’s arguably one of the best baseball video games ever made. By offering a wide variety of ways for players to enjoy the sport – single player, multiplayer, offline, and online – and crafting a beautiful-looking and playing simulation of major league baseball, it has created a template for excellence.

So where does it go from here?

While The Show is terrific, it can always improve. As we near the time of year that we traditionally start to hear about the next version of the game, Bryan and Rich analyze small and large potential improvements and additions to Sony’s title. Is a major new mode in the works? Will Road To The Show be left untouched – again? Will Diamond Dynasty continue to evolve? What about the core gameplay?

For those who’d prefer to listen in podcast form, the audio is available on Hit The Pass Radio which can be found on iTunes, with the Stitcher app on Android, or with Pocket Casts on iOS, Android, and Windows.
