Know what I hate most about sports games? The fact they’re so focused on recreating the broadcast experience of a sport, and not what it’s like to actually play one.
I was one of the four people on Earth who used NFL2K’s first-person camera view, I loved Backbreaker for its more immediate viewpoint, and I sometimes go crazy and think the smartest part of FIFA is the “roadie run” effect you get when playing in career mode.
So when I see footage like this, it makes me yearn for the day games about sport can be just like games about driving: make me feel the action, not watch a bland imitation of a TV show.
The footage up top and below comes courtesy of Raiders punter Chris Kluwe, who took Google Glass to the Oakland Raiders training camp (the bottom video was taken with the glasses strapped to the face of kicker Seb Janikowski).
