7 Sports that Should Have Their Own Video Game

Jai Alai

Jai-a-who?

Jai Alai, if you don't know, essentially involves a ball, called the pelota, bouncing against the walls and between two players or two teams. Players use the cesta, the "elephant tusk" on their arms, to catch the ball and return it against the wall in one fluid motion. The sport originated in Spain in the 14th Century and is still popular today in the Philippines and in Latin America.

Not every sports game needs to feature American sports, but don't write it off just yet. The pelota in Jai Alai travels up to 150 miles per hour regularly in matches. The sport once held the world record for ball speed, clocking in at 188 mph. Jai Alai is filled with fast-paced action and acrobatics, all the makings of a fun video game.
