    "When my son was 15 years old, I began teaching him how to drive by letting him drive the car home after I picked him up at school. While I was giving him instructions on how to handle hazardous driving situations (we live in a city of 3 million population), he interrupted me to tell me that he was a pro on GTA, the game where cars are driven. He told me he has learned to handle all manner of dangers while driving. This was so utterly naive, and he scared me badly enough, that I would not let him drive again until he was 18! Beware of thinking that car racing games are going to teach you anything about real race-car driving."

    "I did not like this solution, as I feel like motorsports are on the fringe of sports. While the game itself is not bad, I would think solutions containing the major sports would be better. Basketball, baseball, football, soccer and hockey games would have been better solutions I think, but that may just be personal preference."

    Assetto Corsa

    "Assetto Corsa is a great sports game to play if you like car racing like I do. I really enjoy the multiplayer aspect of the game because I am competitive in any sports that I play. My favorite part about the game is that if I'm on my laptop in a place without internet access, I can always play offline against the AI. The AI system in this game is the best I have ever seen in a racing game."

    "Mobilized hockey has polo. Mobilized soccer has Rocket league. I never would have imagined zooming around in a car to play soccer, but this game was surprisingly addictive and fun. There are few things that can compare to scoring a goal while simultaneously popping a wheelie!"

    "I really enjoy playing sport management games like Madden on my PC. Lately, I was really board with many sports game until I found Pro Cycling Manager 2017. This is a game where you manage a professional cycling team and compete in cycling races around the world which is so much different and exciting compared to other sports games."

    "If you're looking for a team sports game, this is not for you. However, this is a really fun racing game and it seems so realistic. It feels like you're in a car going really high speed."

    "This is a fantastic, adrenaline junky motorcycle racing game. The courses are the perfect combination of logical and rough and tumble, and zooming around in the dirt and rain makes you feel like you're one cool dude."

    Ski Jump VR

    "When I upgraded my phone I was given a VR headset. I really didn't know what to do with it. I started looking for games to play with it and I discovered Ski Jump VR. The game is so realistic! I really feel like I'm flying down the slopes."

    "Cloudlands: VR Minigolf appeared on Steam's top sports games. I was hesitant to try it out but gave it a chance. I should have saved my money and went to an actual golf course."

    Volleyball Unbound - Pro Beach Volleyball


    $14.99 - $5.99 with Bundle

    "Volleyball Unbound - Pro Beach Volleyball is just about the only beach volleyball game in existence so it wins on originality. The controls work great and the functionality is awesome but the thing is not fun to look at. It's very outdated in the graphics department."

    "Wreckfest is one of the best games on steam. It brings back the old school demolition derby with great graphics and great play. If you like competition and fun, than try out wreckfest."

    "My best friend is a big fan of sports games. Together, we searched Steam and stumbled upon F1 2016. It was a title that we that we would love, as we both like racing, especially Formula 1. Unfortunately for him, as we played the game we were extremely disappointed. The game didn't live up to the hype and failed to impress us. I would recommend finding a different game in this category."

    "I love Rugby 15, this game is amazingly realistic and the character and team options are amazing. This game allows you to really test your rugby strategy skills on the field. The graphics are fantastic and realistic which makes this an incredibly immersive game that you can play endlessly for hours on end."

    "The solution link goes directly to a Steam game. l found the link to be solid and not to some external site. The game gets mostly positive reviews from the users. The game seems to me to be fun, but I do not think it should be classified as a "best" game because of the overall rating."

    "EA Sports UFC 2 is the second installment from EA in the UFC series. It is a fun and realistic MMA game and has most of the popular UFC stars. This is the PS4 version but the game is also available on Steam."

    "Fun game! I love being able to play with my friends while we trash talk each other. There's a huge roster of available players to choose from. And I especially like how I don't have to pay to win!"

    "I am a golfer and I was very excited when I found this Steam free to play game. Winning Putt is both challenging and at the same time very relaxing. I found the game as addicting as the real game and you can play golf with people from all over the world, the community is huge. There are tournaments to play in and you can watch your handicap get lower and lower."

    "I wanted a new sports game to play on Steam. I assumed I'd pick a basketball or football one, but I tried out The Golf Club. This was my first gold game and its great fun. I have never been a golf fan, but I still enjoy this a lot."

    "If you are looking for a good game on Steam, I highly recommend Steep. I have played it before and it's incredibly fun. You ride around on a snowboard on the top of the mountains and compete with stunts. Very fun."

    "I'm a huge fan of sports games like football, racing and basketball. NBA 2K17 without a doubt is the gold standard for computer based basketball games. It has everything you want in a basketball game and more. Player setups, team management, tournaments, the whole nine yards. And it's on Steam, so it's always fairly priced."

    "Once again the ***2K## franchise has cornered the market on splashy, memory intensive, overly complex gimmicky game. Using pseudo-hip street sounding categories this year's entry in the NBA category is trying to attract players straight off the playground courts, following the hip concept begun three years ago in soft drink commercials"

    Handball 17

    Aaradhya Jaiteley
    "Wow! This is as real to playing handball as I have ever seen in a simulation game. The players move the way real players move and at the fast speeds of actual players. The graphics make me feel like I am an actual player in the game, not some spectator watching the game. Not only are more than 80 international known teams available to play in this game, but I can play either as a solo player or with multiple players all around the world, making it truly an international competition."

    "WW 2K18 might wind up being the best sports game on Steam...from what I hear. While it's currently being developed, the graphics and action are supposed to be extraordinary. I loved watching wrestling growing up and am really excited about the release of this game!"

    "This looks like it could be a fun game to play, but it is on the PlayStation Store. I have credit to use on Steam and so I'm really only interested in a game on that sales platform. I definitely am only interested in games from Steam. So, unfortunately, this hit wouldn't work for me at all."

    "Don Bradman Cricket 17 is admittedly a strange pick for a sports game on Steam. I would only recommend it if you already like the game of cricket. If not you may find yourself closing out to play something more relatable. If you do happen to be into cricket, this is a really good and full featured choice that I'm sure you'll find much more entertaining than I did."

    "I was searching for some sports games on Steam a while ago because I wanted to play something wrestling related and relax and have a good time. The problem is that I found what I was looking for (a sports game), however I didn't find it on the platform I was looking for it on. I found it for PS4, it was a little bit of a let down."
