ESPN’s new gridiron game lets you crush your friends when they’re not even there.
Playing football videogames
is most fun when you’re pitted against your friends. For those of you who no longer live in a frat house, though, finding an opponent whenever you get the gaming jones just isn’t practical. But now there’s ESPN NFL 2K5 ($20 for Xbox and PlayStation2; ). It creates computerized versions of your friends, saddled with their identical sorry style of play, so in their absence you can practice beating up on them.
