Kotaku.com, an online blog that covers video games, has named NLL Lacrosse 2010 the Best Indie Sports Game of the year.


Crosse Studios took this honor among an admittedly small pool of candidates last year, and does so again this year by becoming the first independent sports video game to be fully licensed by a professional sports league. Long wished-for by many in the insular pro lacrosse fanbase, the game released in April with all of the teams and player likeness from the National Lacrosse League, and demonstrated that niche promotions which can’t crack establishment media gatekeepers can still find an audience in video games, and the cachet that comes with it.

In 2009, Adam O’Neill, Harry Alford and Thomas Alford launched Lacrosse Playground as the preeminent site for lacrosse gearheads. For years Lacrosse Playground provided lacrosse fans with tutorials and tips on how to string a lacrosse head, up-close looks at the gear the top players used and sneak peeks at equipment and uniforms before they were released. More than 10 years and millions of visits later, Lacrosse Playground has relaunched with a focus on storytelling. Our mission is to provide comprehensive coverage of the latest lacrosse news, share insights into the sports betting and fantasy lacrosse world and showcase the lifestyles and personalities of the sport of lacrosse through articles, videos and podcasts.
