By the time OSFM comes out, the game has been out a month, so Ive already been playing it for about a sixth of its life cycle I almost never keep a game more than 6 months. Ive played Madden franchises and made it 10 seasons or so, but at games, its really hard to play out even one full season.

There is a strategy that I used in MVP 05, which is the only baseball game that I made it through more than one year. I saw it posted on OS way back then, and it really helped me plow through the seasons while also dealing with medical school.

Here is the strategy: Play one game in each series, but no more. Play 2 games in each divisional series. Before each series, look at the matchup and see which game will be the most interesting for you to play. Sim the other games, but jump in towards the end if things are close. Id jump in and get the save with my closer or bat in the 8th and 9th if my team was only down a run or if tied. I think if I can motivate myself to do both this as well as just start as soon as I get it with default rosters, in addition to vita cross save, I may actually make it through a few seasons this year.

My problem is I'm very OCD about how accurate rosters are. For example, I started a franchise with my beloved Astros a few months ago. As a baseball enthusiast, I keep up with trades, claimings, drafts, signing, and so on.

When Josh Hamilton signed with the Angels, it bugged me so much that he was on the Rangers in my franchise, I gave up and deleted the save. And it's not just big players, it's really any player. It drives me crazy because I'll finally get into a franchise, then delete it after a few moves are made in real life. Everyone always told me to do 30 team control and just move the player, but it's different. I like when the CPU trades, drafts, and signs on their own. I don't want to have to do it myself.

But that's just me. I personally do this. Cubfan Follow me on Twitter: In my baseball card came out with no picture". In order to experience the sensation of a lengthy franchise with multiple offseasons I set up shorter seasons 14 or something games. It's the only way I have to to enjoy RTTS which I spend most of my time with while still being able to experience all the joys of managing a franchise throughout a season and offseason.
