Play news Metal Gear Solid 2, GTA V… 8 inevitable mini-games for budding athletes
While some titles such as Wii Sports, The Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games or Ring Fit have made it their trademark, other productions, to vary the pleasures, have decided to implement sports mini-games in them … Today we invite you to explore these amazing creations to create an athlete’s body for this summer. Come on, finish your stretch (and faster than that), and let’s launch our video game sports schedule together.
Tekken Ball in Tekken 3
We start our intensive training by making a small time travel. Yes, head to 1998 to relive the launch of Tekken 3 on the very first PlayStation. But Unlike the Arcade version of the game, which was released two years earlier, this version not only features the Mishama family competing in 1v1 matches, but also features the summer mini-game Tekken Ball. This proposal – which also returns in the Wii U version of Tekken Tag Tournament 2 – addresses the rules of dodgeball. In other words, the fighters must send the ball to their opponent to clear their lives. The first to knock out his sworn enemy, of course, wins the game.
Golf in GTA V
Now let’s go back to 2013 … Nah, 2014 … Sorry, I thought 2022 should take a vacation in Los Santos, land with all the fantasies that can be discovered by launching the famous Grand Theft Auto V. In this adventure offer players to see the emergence of three budding robbers (Michael, Franklin and Trevor), it is also possible to indulge in some sports activities. Uh yes, in GTA V it is possible to do almost anything: yoga, diving, triathlon and tennis. But in the end, it was sports mini-games that convinced us the most, golf. In this mini-game, which is almost as accurate as a game dedicated to discipline, the player can change club according to the situation and must be aware of the direction of the wind. Better, between two holes, no black screen, as our anti-hero can also steal a small shopping cart to move from one hole to another. A real favorite!
Basketball on the way out
If you like basketball, we suggest you head to A Way Out, a game by Josef Fares who, like It Takes Two (his latest creation), likes to vary the pleasures. In addition to the traditional gun battles and exploration phases, the collaborative game allows you to play Connect 4, darts, baseball and therefore basketball. In fact, at a key moment in history, our heroes meet with their families and decide to play a game. This is the opportunity here to challenge Leo Caruso’s son in 1 against 1. Moreover, if you want to make some curves, you can also go to Los Santos … Yes, in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, between two crimes, our dear CJ can play basketball on one of the courts in his neighborhood.

Jump Rope and Super Mario Odyssey
We are now taking a small detour to the Nintendo Switch to holiday in the wonderful world of Super Mario Odyssey. In this sun adventure, released in 2017, the oversized plumber dressed in red overalls can indulge in many different activities, but for the bravest among you, note that our jumping hero has the opportunity to work on his endurance by jumping rope near Skyscraper Country. Yes, two female characters are spinning a rope in the middle of the square, and our friend Mario can invite himself to the party. But be careful, if everything first turns out to be very easy, you will quickly have to double your agility to complete the challenge, which requires you to perform at least 100 jumps, and this without getting caught in the rope.
Blitzball in Final Fantasy X
If you’ve spent many hours on Final Fantasy X, you’ve definitely stopped at Blitzball mode, an ultra-perfect mode that throws players into a gravity pool to play a kind of slightly more whimsical water polo. Here the rules are simple, you have to send the ball into the goal of the enemy camp, but this Blitzball is not only that. He also has the intelligence to implement turn-based game mechanics during the highlights of the match so as not to distort the original proposal for the main adventure. In any case, Blitzball promises you many hours of play, as it contains several playable characters as well as a tournament mode.

Bombball in Team Buddies
For this fifth sporting exercise, we invite you to return to the side of the first PlayStation to stop a few lines on Team Buddies. Pretty unknown, this adventure with a focus on local multiplayer offers gameplay that mixes ideas from many franchises: Worms and War Pigs in mind. But beyond its Solo campaign, which will have you throwing controllers and its fun multiplayer mode, the title also offers a Bomb Ball mode. This mini-game which more or less incorporates the basics of American football, offers our heroes in the form of a rifle bullet to throw an explosive ball into the opposite goal. ” ‘It’s fun, no fuss and … explosive.
Do you want to practice extreme sports now? Yes ? That’s good, as we’re heading towards Metal Gear Solid 2 – or rather its Substance version – to skate. Yes, you heard right … To pay homage to Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater saga, Hideo Kojima chose to implement a bonus game mode where Snake and Raiden can skateboard to perform tricks in the Mother Base. This very nice proposal fills everything that makes the salt in the Activision license, starting with its particular physique, but also its points system and even its gameplay. In other words, absolutely good!
Engine Kombat and Mortal Kombat Armageddon
Now that we’ve had a good time, let’s end with a test, let’s say, a little less physical, but no less intense: the map. Popularized with the arrival of Super Mario Kart in 1992 on Super Nintendo, kart games became fashionable in the late 90s and early 2000s. Several popular licenses utilized this craze for the genre to place here and there mini-games in honor of this discipline. Among these licenses we find in particular Canis Canem Edit, Yakuza or Mortal Kombat, which with Mortal Kombat Armageddon, opus from 2006, has a complete optional mode: Motor Kombat. In this crazy proposal, which incorporates all the rules of Mario Kart, beginning with the presence of objects on the plot, the player has the choice of ten playable characters (including Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Jax, Kitana and Johnny Cage) and even offers a total of five circuits, just that.
