10 Sports Games for Casual Players

Most sports video games out there are pretty competitive. Given that the player does not know anything about the sport, he or she will most likely struggle in the game. Fortunately, there are some sports games designed for newcomers. So, even if you are unfamiliar with the sport, you’ll have no problem playing these games.

Today, we’ll talk about these games! The 10 choices are beginner-friendly sports games where even if you are not a sports head, you will have a ton of fun with them!

Let’s start!

Arguably the most famous sports/football game out there. FIFA is not exactly the easiest sports game but that is when we talk about Ultimate Team. Its other modes like Career Mode and Free Match are all very accepting for new players, making them somewhat ideal to learn football.

For starters, we recommend going with the Amateur difficulty. This level is very forgiving and the AI will give players a lot of leeways like making intentional mistakes for them to capitalise upon. It is a great way for them to learn the game and understand the sport as well.

That said if you want to learn football through a different game, check out 8 other football games other than FIFA here!

2. Disney Speedstorm

Disney plus racing; is a match made in heaven. Disney Speedstorm is a racing game that’s fun for all ages, a game where you can play with your children or with a party of friends.

Amazingly designed with colourful tracks and having Disney-themed characters, you’ll feel like you’re in a magical world competing to be the best racer. The power-ups like rockets and shields make the game very light-hearted for a genre that is always deemed too serious.

On many occasions, you’ll see yourself laughing at mistakes and having actual fun rather than worrying whether you make it to the finish line first or not!

3. Mario Kart

As a racing game, Mario Kart is up there with Disney Speedstorm for being extremely goofy in the right way. In that sense, you can say that everyone will enjoy Mario Kart, even if they are not that into racing.

Combined with its classic characters and crazy courses, this racing game is a favourite among many casual gamers. It is an awesome party-racing game where you and your friends can go crazy on the racetrack with the characters from the Mario franchise.

It’s not your usual racing game because it mixes the insane with the sane. You will be gifted with consistent power-ups that you can use to hijack your fellow racers. It’s a non-competitive-competitive game suited for all players.

4. Golf Story

Golf is seen to be a sport that if you don’t get it, you’ll be bored of it. This is not the case for the game Golf Story.

Golf Story is a game you won’t want to miss. This RPG-style game lets you explore a golfing world, complete quests, and upgrade your skills. With charming graphics and addictive gameplay, you’ll be hooked in no time.

So, if you want to get associated with golf in a more niche manner, consider picking up Golf Story. The style itself is less centred around the fine mechanics of golf but more about its spirit. We’re sure once you played it yourself, you’ll look at golf differently.

5. Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games Series

For a variety of sports games all in one, check out the Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games series. With events ranging from gymnastics to swimming to track and field, you’ll have plenty to choose from.

Adding to the fact that you will be using characters from two giant franchises of Mario and Sonic, expect to be in for a great time. And like with most games on the list, the games aren’t too restrictive when it comes to rules and mechanics. This makes it super accessible for non-sports players who just want to have a good time.

6. Wii Sports

If you’re looking for some classic casual gaming, then Wii Sports is a great option. With games like tennis, bowling, and boxing, you’ll have fun with friends or on your own.

The motion controls for Wii Sports are still very playable today and amazing for their time. They have always been family classics and even today, they aged like fine wine. Honestly, there’s nothing much to say about Wii Sports. You can never go wrong with them and their tutorials are all very well developed so you don’t have to worry about being super blur from the get-go.

Not only a great but also a safe option if you really don’t know what else to pick for a sports game.

7. Trials Rising

From the looks of it, Trials Rising might seem to be an intense game. It takes a lot of physics into account but overall, it is actually a gigantic bowl of fun you would laugh your socks off about.

The premise is, the game allows you to race motorbikes through challenging courses, riddled with obstacles like jumps and loops. With online multiplayer and a variety of modes, you’ll have a blast trying to beat your opponents. Not to worry though, this game is not as competitive as esports title but the thrill is certainly there.

8. Burnout Legends

Let’s be clear. Burnout Legends is not a game that you should learn racing from. Even so, if you enjoy chaotic fun, Burnout Legends is among the very best.

For some high-speed car racing, Burnout Legends is the game for you. With fast-paced gameplay and impressive crashes, you’ll feel like you’re in a Hollywood action movie. Plus, with various modes and unlockable cars, you’ll have plenty to keep you entertained.

Essentially, this game lets you live a life as if you are in a Fast and Furious movie. The animations and actions are over the top and we love them for that. Again, it is not a racing game that focuses on the nerdy details, it’s like a guilty pleasure that you’d enjoy with a couple of friends.

9. Golf With Your Friends

Another fun golf game to check out is Golf With Your Friends. A game that is vastly different from Golf Story as it carries a lot of real-life golf elements. Still, it is nothing too serious and even if you are a novice, you’ll enjoy this game due to its carefree nature.

Capable of supporting up to 12 players, this is an insane party game you can have online. It is a game that is best supported with voice chat apps like Discord, you will not need to be physically present to laugh out loud through the mic.

Adding that with crazy courses and power-ups, you’ll have one hell of a time trying to outscore your opponents in the most humorous ways.

10. Wrestling Empire

We also love that the creators made the commentary as funny as possible which manages to lighten up most situations. It’s a game that will keep you entertainingly occupied for hours and despite the brute nature of wrestling, having a playful video game for it is very much welcomed.
