The 25 Best Virtual Athletes In Video Games

14. Manny Ramirez

Game: MLB 10: The Show

Unfortunately there is no drug testing feature in The Show. That meant long after we all realized ManRam was a total fraud, he was still rated as the guy who set the Dodgers on fire in the second half of 2008. Manny's freakish power was just like a guy on steroids because, well, he was.

Another development decision that worked in virtual Manny's favor was that The Show renders an outfielder's fielding ability meaningless. The CPU gets perfect reads on every ball and it doesn't matter if in real-life, Manny is scratching his ass and staring into the crowd, in the game he's laser focused and capable of making defensive gems that would've made Jim Edmonds look dopier than a brain dead little leaguer.
