15 Ridiculous Real-Life Things Missing From Otherwise Realistic Sports Video Games

Flopping

The NBA and soccer leagues everywhere have made efforts to curb the practice of flopping/diving, play acting in the hopes that an official will award a foul to an opponent. But it's still on display every week when a player does their best imitation of Bruce Willis being blown back several feet in a Die Hard movie.

We say, embrace it. There's an art to cheating (and it's not some cheat code bullshit), and if a gamer is good enough to get away with taking a fall and pressing a combination of buttons that makes one's histrionics more likely to affect the ref, great. And hey, if you dive or flop and get penalized for it, well, then you just learned a valuable lesson: cheat better.
