What do people play these days?

Post by epsilonindi »

I was a longtime lurker here after the release of Links 2003. My favorite courses were Mike Jones’ Old Burns’ Links and Bethpage Black by Dominique Bois and that big cooperative Augusta National project, and all kinds of others, like Stonebridge and Burnt Pine and Brookline and Wagga Wagga and Desert Canyon and Palmetto Dunes... I could go on and on though.

I haven’t played much PC golf in the last 15 years, and was wondering what people are playing now? I’ve seen screenshots of E6 Connect golf, but it looks like it’s only for golf swing simulators. I tried Perfect Parallel, but it was hard to use. I’ve also seen clips of PGA Tour 2K21, but it doesn’t have an impressive course catalog and the graphics don’t have the level of detail to be immersive. I kind of expected better graphics in a PC golf game after 15 years away! Is there a game I’m missing? What does everyone play these days?

I took a few years off Links but realized I could never stay away. I'm now playing online-something I'd never done before and after "nit picking" other designers' "real" courses I finally bit the bullet and installed the APCD and am looking at the YouTube...it's HARD! :scared:

Ryan, just about everyone on here believes that Links 2k3 is the most realistic golf sim out there. It has just gotten better over the 15 years you've been away. And there are so many great courses thanks to the hard work of our designers now. Just go to LSPN.Net---sign up and enjoy. :thumbup:

Modern sport games in particular have gone backwards. I play the old golf games, today, tomorrow and the remainder of my life. :thumbup:

The people who made Linksls loved golf.....the people who made 2k21 love money.

Thanks Danny. Very rare I've ever had anyone say that to me on Links Corner! :laugh:
