The Appeal of Funny Boxing

There are many people that do not have a stomach for the violence and unnecessary brutality that the people who are not boxing fans associate with the game. These sports enthusiasts who do not appreciate the actual boxing game, but its elements as a sport have primarily been behind the emergence of another interesting trend of funny boxing. This is a widely accepted selection of snippets of a typical boxing match, but with the hilarious aspects of it extracted to make a collection of interesting footage. The first use of funny boxing was in the early 80’s and this could well have marked the start of another equally interesting kind of boxing common with video games.

In the recent years, video game platforms have become more creative in their use of various types of animation with each new release. Some of the video games that have a high level of animation are games that take their simulation themes from the boxing arena. Basically, the aim of these types of games is to punch an opponent silly and vanquish them. The level of animation can rise from one color two dimensional videos to high techno-color three dimensional animation. The higher the color and animation that is in these games, the costlier they become and often, the more interesting the variety of play becomes too.

Some of the more recent games even have a virtual reality component to them where the player can simulate their boxing actions just by moving the controls in their hands. They then appear to be physically punching an animated opponent on the game screen. It can actually be a very hilarious sight to watch someone punch the air, and get pretty exhausted doing it, while all through they are simulating virtual reality imagery in their imagination.

These kinds of video games come in handy during the holiday season and when it is too cold to do anything outdoors as it sometimes gets in winter. They can serve as a captivating pastime for the family and most especially for those members of the family that enjoy the real boxing matches. A lot of boxing fans will appreciate not only the animation, but will also understand the scoring parameters. This fact can make watching the video footage made from aspects of actual boxing matches that were funny very interesting too. It is only a boxing fan that will really appreciate the humor in these videos that are for the sole purpose of bringing humor into what many may see as a fairly unpleasant game.

Sportsims.net is much better than Fantasy football and now it’s FREE!

t

By Bill Smith

Fantasy football can be fun but more often it’s just frustrating. Even in keeper teams, you build a team and then lose all but 2 or 3 players to free agency. The season lasts 14 weeks plus playoffs not all year long. It has one draft and if you blow it (like the Browns always do), you live with your errors for 4 months.

The worst part is when your first round choice is injured, or a pinhead coach decides to pass and not run the ball, you have no prayer of winning. I don’t waste my time with fantasy football any longer because I have found something much more enjoyable and realistic—Sportsims.net.

32 players work as Owners/GM of their favorite team from scouting rookies to the draft to training camp and then through the regular season and playoffs. The GM drafts players based on actual NFL players through the 2007 season, sets the lineups, develops individual game plans for both offense and defense.

As a former semi-pro coach, I can truly say that this game is the closest thing to real coaching. A season takes only a month. Next month, you have the draft and keep the players you have developed minus the ones that have retired for the next season. In just a couple of months, you can tell if your team is getting better or if you need to change your plan and rebuild.

Perhaps the best part is the off season. Scouting the players and deciding what you need is good, but negotiating trades with other teams is even better. Make the right trade and your team gets better but pick a guy that doesn’t fit with what you really need, and it can set your team back for seasons. Then get ready for the live draft.

With Sportsims.net, you deal with injuries, but don’t have to worry about team chemistry. I guarantee that TO will not cry at a press conference. Are you good enough to get to the playoffs let alone play in the Sims Bowl? If you try it, you will like it. Every day it is a challenge but the wins are even more satisfying than in Fantasy because they are based on planning and team strength rather than luck.

The standard game is now free to play for everyone. If you love football, you owe it to yourself to give it a try. You have nothing to lose but the boredom of the off season. At the very least, check it out.

That’s what I think. Tell me what you think.
