As a video game fanatic (and Soccer/AFL lover) I just realised that in the modern world one massive disparity must be addressed for AFL to become mainstream worldwide.

Video games.

Think about it. Anyone can now become Ronaldinho with Pro Evo 5 on PC or Playstation. Not to mention the FIFA (EA Sports) juggernaut or Championship/Footbal Manager.

There are 1000's of soccer video games released each year, many of them in Australia which are best sellers.

How many AFL video games have there ever been? Here's my list to the best of my knowledge?

1. Australian Rules (1987) C64
2. Aussie Rules Footy (1991) NES
3. AFL Fever (1996) PC
4. AFL 1998 (1999) PC/PSX
5. AFL 1999 (2000) PC/PSX
6. Aussie Rules Coach (2001) PC
7. Kevin Sheedy Coach (2002) PC
8. AFL Live 2003 (2003) PC/PS2/XB
9. AFL Live 2004 (2004) PC/PS2/XB
10. AFL Premiership Edition (2005) PC/PS2/XB

Is that it? 10 games in 20 years? No wonder soccer is miles ahead with our youth!

(BTW Rugby League is even more pathetic that this list!)

I guess it all comes down to supply and demand. If people are buying the games in large numbers, then the game manufacturers will come out with more different versions.
