So, like, what was the point of even playing the match? EA Sports told us how this thing would play out over a year ago with the above MLS Cup simulation. This is seriously eerie. Not only did they accurately predict the Galaxy winning the title by a score of 3-1 but they even nailed two of the goal-scorers in Landon Donovan and Robbie Keane.
I mean, aside from the video game version featuring about 300,000 simulated fans this thing couldn’t have been more accurate. I wonder if EA Sports does family events. I’d kill to watch a two-minute simulation of Christmas at my house rather than sit through a family marathon of spoiled eggnog, children drunk with cheer and senile stories from my elders.
Anyway, the real highlights with real people are after the jump.
