PS3 online gaming sucks


It doesn't really suck per se I guess. It sucks when you play FIFA09 on here. It sucks for a number of reasons:

1) Everyone on there is a plastic fan. I have played 6 games. Five of the people used Manchester United and one used AC Milan. I used my team, West Ham United, and got whipped. The pattern is steal the ball, pas it to Ronaldo, score. Talk about not fun.

2) There is no tactics whatsoever. It is just steal the ball, pass it to a player, shoot. Hardly any passing. No runs. No tactical changes. Very, very one-dimensional.

3) Everyone on there is a tool. Maybe they can't speak English, I don't know, but there is no banter. Just "Let's steal the ball, pass it to a player, and shoot."

I believe that's true of most sports games online. Most people pick one of the two or three strongest teams and use cheese tactics. I played NCAA 09 online a handful of times before I got tired of playing people who use Florida and Ohio State to run screen passes that you can't stop, and USC with a seven DB defense that covers everything.

Someone on the West Ham board told me to use Man City because their CBs are fast enough to keep up with Ronaldo. I did it and am 1-1 with it. Things were better this morning. Maybe there are just a bunch of tools on at 1am.

You'll occasionally catch people who use their favorite team even though their favorite team sucks or play a realistic, strategic game, but for the most part you're going to have to use top-tier teams or cheap strategies no matter what time you play.
