I know I've bitched about this before, but for fucks sake, will it ever end? I'm playing March Madness 2001 for Playstation and for the most part it's excellent. It's everything I want in a college basketball simulator except for the AI. There are just certain matches where it decides that you need to lose. Ok, In some games you play, your guys shouldn't play as well, that's realistic, but this is the kind of shit that only happens in a basketball player's nightmare. If you take a shot and another player is even somewhat close to you, it will be blocked, every single time. Your guys start not going for rebounds, and if they do, the ball bounces off of their hands. The foul calls are messed up. Your defense is useless, because they will just run through your guys somehow and get a dunk. Or an alley-oop. You will get zero steals. I knew it was just some kind of sick joke by EA when the other team started purposely missing free throws so that they could grab the rebound and dunk it for more points. It hate being helpless like that. Thankfully I didn't pay actual money for it, so I can't be too outraged. I would still like to see an explanation from someone who works for a game dev explaining why they put this hair-pulling bullshit into otherwise good games.

I need to start a registry of games that pull this stuff:

NBA Hangtime
NCAA March Madness
Need For Speed Underground 1 and 2
Mario Kart Double Dash
Tokyo Xtreme Racer

What else?
