Earl Weaver Baseball (Nostalga)

Post  hbomb on September 10th 2010, 2:00 pm

Wondering if anyone remembers this. I consider it the intellectual ancestor of OOTP.

Earl Weaver Baseball was ranked as one of the best 25 computer games of all time (as of 2006). Think of all the major sim features of OOTP, plus a graphic engine, and ability to customize ballparks, but all done 15-20 years ago. Mind you, it might take a week for my old 286/386 to sim a complex multileague setup, but it was utterly brilliant for what it was.

If Markus and Dave (creater of EWB) ever got together, they would surely revolutionize baseball simulation. Dave is apparently an exec at Etrade Financial.

I really miss their coaching options/realism, I would love to hire Earl Weaver, or Felipe Alou in any OOTP game. Ditto on the ballparks, I would make insane big or insane small parks with 40+ foot walls.
