Nice read as always. (Y) I would also place myself in the Reasonable Sim Gamer category, possibly approaching Hybrid Gamer waters. I'm willing to look past sim engine faults in Association Mode, such as the Spurs not making the playoffs, but I do have to experience a great degree of realism to be satisfied. Sometimes, if I'm blowing out my opponent, I change the CPU sliders to bolster their ability to come back to make it a challenge and more realistic.

Thanks for checking it out. :)

I too can overlook the odd undesirable result here and there if I'm enjoying the game and the results are at least acceptable for the most part. When it comes to Dynasty/Association, you have to allow for a certain amount of fantasy and deviation from reality. As for my playing style, I prefer to avoid cheap plays and cheese, at least until the AI starts to cheat. That's when one has to reach into the bag of tricks. ;)
