Oh... he means small cars?

I thought he meant normal car racing where the drivers were midgets or something

I've noticed that, out of the nearly endless video games released to this day, there are some things that haven't really gotten much representation in video game form.

I don't know of any notable games about sumo wrestling, lacrosse, badminton, midget car racing, being a teacher, psychiatry or wine making. If anyone here knows of specific games about any of those, please tell me.

What are some subjects/topics that you don't think have had their own video games, or at least not many game about them?

Sumo wrestling

I played that in World Games (Epyx) on the C64:

psychiatry

Tender Loving Care, great FMV game: https://www.gog.com/game/tender_loving_care

 

Wine making

I played the German "Winzer" dozens of hours with my brother in my Amiga days

Not a full game, but World Games on the C64 and various other platforms had a Sumo event.

Epyx' Games series (Summer, Winter, California, World) were such a great experience back in 80s - I guess they were somewhat what FIFA is for current generations of kids.

Yeah, they were all fun, although California was the weak link imo. C64 versions were so much better than the NES ports

I think there was a full game about sumo on PS2, but I can't remember what it's name was and it was Japan only.

Never seen NES ports - honestly, I had no idea they existed, I thought they were all on various computers from that period (I had C64).
