EA Sports is out with NCAA Football 11 and a straight-forward approach: playing up on the rivalries built into all sports with “Where I come from.” Clips in this one and Big 12 combine actual game scenarios cut in with live action fans and athletes make it a question now of where does the video game end and the sports fan begin. I’m not a fan of the technique so much as I haven’t seen enough that make me go holy shit. Sony PS3 with Kevin Butler is doing some things. Then going further outside the category, I still like the way Ratchet and Clank 2 blended game with live action.
