Did you just say cricket??? :P

 

I play Fifa.. for basketball.. I would recommend 2k13 or 2k14..Better than the EA versions

 

Steam has the 2k series basketball games on sale for their christmas bargains.. 

 

Cricket yes it is available.. Steam has it to .. There is one game called Ashes Cricket I believe.. It is supposedly best one out there.. Other one I think is called Cricket Revolution.. 

 

Don't know if they are any good though... 

 

Unfortunately I can't help you with links to steam, as it is blocked at work .. sorry otherwise I would have posted them.. 

 

Hope that helps...

Fifa is cool. There's also an alternative called Pro Evolution Soccer.

Don't forget racing games, they also fall under sports games category. Need For Speed Rivals is great, Grid 2 is awesome.

Racing is as far as I'd venture into "sports" games.

 

I feel like an interactive system like a Wii, PS Move or Kinect would be more fun if playing the more traditional sports games on a PC

 

IMHO sports games are the butthole of video game genres

I think Sega Genesis had the last sports game I've purchased, some NHL game.

 

(P.S. get them GTA anyway...they'll be far happier :D)

Here is the catch to dirt or F1.. Cheapest controller to get is the 360 one for the PC.. Using the keyboard and mouse sux.. Expensive of course is to get the racing wheel :P
