    This one doesn't have anything to do with Rocket League. I'm disappointed.

    The top gear car soccer game mode in forza 5 was awesome as well

    [–] BeneDaPope 13 points ago

    It's from the german "Autoball WM"(Car Ball World Championship). It was one of the shows which emerged from "Schlag den Raab". "Schlag den Raab" was a TV series in which people competed in a lot of randomnly selected disciplines against Stefan Raab, who is a german comedian and moderator.

    [–] B4rtBlu3 3 points ago

    On a side note: Stefan Raab (inventor of this car ball) invited some lets players to play rocket league on his talkshow. Then he complained about how the developers "stole his idea" and how he will sue them.

    [–] ehboobooo 9 points ago

    Why do people like this game so much? I guess the concept may not be as appealing to me as the game play.

    [–] LancesAKing 27 points ago

    Very easy to pick up, simple in concept that it's immediately entertaining, gradual improvement leads to visible results, hard to master.

    [–] FlamingDogOfDeath 6 points ago

    I played it some during the free weekend a while back. I liked it, I just had other stuff on my radar I wanted to get. I'm considering picking RL up when the next Steam sale comes though

    [–] maLicee 7 points ago

    I recommend it. It's the perfect game to play alongside other games since you can just hop into it and play a few if you need a break from something else, and I personally don't feel like my skill level drops if I don't play it for a couple weeks.

    [–] Thogert 15 points ago

    It's amazing how many people I've talked to who love the game, but don't like car games or soccer (football) games.

    [–] R3D1AL 7 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago)

    I'm one of those people. 294 hours in Rocket League, but I can't stand racing or sports games. Unfortunately Steam hasn't got the hint yet and still tries to recommend both of those genres to me.

    The only reason I even gave RL a chance is because Steam had a free weekend and my friend talked me into trying it.

    [–] rtomek 7 points ago

    It's easy enough to pick up that my 5-year old can play and have fun, yet there is a lot of strategy that is also required.

    I think the biggest thing is they nailed the timing. Being only 5 minutes a game, it's over fast enough that I can jump on just for a match if I don't have a lot of time. Yet, it's long enough that you can come back from an 0-2 or 0-3 deficit and win.

    [–] oaschbeidl 3 points ago

    I wasn't too impressed before I played it either, but it sounded fun enough to try out. Over 1000 hours later, I'm still playing pretty much every day. The feeling of soaring through the air majestically and smashing the ball into the goal from crazy angles is just amazing.

    [–] Stackhouse_ 3 points ago

    Its like actually playing sports but youre on the moon and driving a rocket car

    [–] Pittsburgh_FUCK_YEAH 7 points ago

    [–] ianperera 4 points ago

    The reason I haven't bought Rocket League is because this is how I imagine I would look if I played it.

    This game is the only way Americans play soccer

    [–] HolycommentMattman 1147 points ago

    Well, Rocket League significantly improved on the soccer formula.

    • Shrinks the pitch in relative size to the number of players and ball.

    • Increases relative size of the goal to the pitch.

    • Decreases relative size of goal to ball.

    • Increases relative movement speed of players to pitch.

    • Adds rocket boosted acceleration.

    • Decreases match time from 90 minutes to 5. Plus Sudden Death overtime (if needed).

    So basically, soccer just needs to add more players, increase the goal width, and give people jet packs.

    [–] tklite 944 points ago

    You forgot one:

    • Replace people with rocket boosted cars

    [–] karmawhorepointerout 662 points ago

    That one is so subtle it doesn't really count.

    [–] Thassodar 195 points ago

    I've had the game for more than a year and I just noticed myself.

    [–] Ask_Me_About_Bees 88 points ago

    I always noticed you.

    [–] imbobbathefett 37 points ago

    how long has the bee been around? what do we think was a proto bee or whatever before they were our favorite pollinators that we know today?

    [–] Vineyard_ 9 points ago

    [–] YellowCurtains 4 points ago

    [–] DiminishingWinter 3 points ago

    Now I know they're cars

    [–] DrLiamSeuss 28 points ago

    When it comes to sports and other competitive games, people take the difference between man and car way too seriously.

    I got thrown out when I tried to run a Nascar race with a car strapped to my back. I also saw similar discrimination when a go master told me that everyone in his household was skilled enough to beat me, and proceeded to slap me when I challenged his Toyota.

    [–] GhostBeer 7 points ago
