Most modern sports have their video game counterparts, including team sports, combat sports, and motorsports and even extreme sports.

Sports game genre has been very popular throughout the history of video games. The reason behind this is a high competitiveness just like with real-world sports. Best sports games are physically and tactically challenging, and they’re often testing player's accuracy, precision, and reaction time. Most sports games try to model the athletic characteristics required by that sport, e.g. strength, speed, stamina, accuracy, etc. Just like their respective sports, these video games take place in a pre-defined stadium, track or arena.
