An interesting fact about sports games is that the game developers often release a game annually for each game series.

There are several sub-categories in this Sports Gaming category. They are Arcade, Sport-Simulation, Sport-Management and Fighting-Sport Simulations. Sport-Simulation games are the basic games that we mentioned above. (FIFA, NBA, etc). In the later additions of FIFA and PES game franchises, we can see this Sport-Management category.
