NBA 2K10

The piano laced intro lets you know the power of the game you are about to embark on. NBA 2K10 is one of the best basketball games I have ever played and will go down as one of the best b-ball games of all time along with Coach K and NBA Live ’96. One of the biggest reasons for this acclaim is the stellar presentation, the presentation alone is enough to purchase. If you are like me and grew up in the glorious era of the NBA on NBC then you will fall in love with NBA2K10. The commentary is amazing, Kevin and Clark will speak on past games, accolades, rivalries etc all in fluid motion not sounding automated. The biggest addition to the overall game is the new My Player mode; this mode has been done before in games, but never with such depth. I’m a true b-ball video gamer, been balling hard since Double Dribble/Jordan vs. Bird bee, so you know I had to get hands on with the game myself. My NBA career started in the summer league with the Wizards, getting used to the controls hindered my progress a little bit but that’s why I practice. When you play this mode you only control yourself, the emphasis is on being a good team player. Your overall grade is placed in the top left corner of the screen; you get graded for pretty much everything (box out, make an assist, alley, tight d, etc). I had to throw out all I previously knew about b-ball games and learn again, I had to learn that I am part of a team and not the team. After 6 games in the summer league I was cut and sent to the D-League, I couldn’t believe it! My SG wasn’t good enough so I packed up for LA and learned the importance of team ball. 8 games with LA’s D-League team and Utah called me up, the 2K Insider (a lil dude who gives you advice, NBA stories and critiques your game) told me I was signed to a 10 day contract so I knew I had to play at my highest level. My first NBA game I was in awe, all the people, the sound, and the TV cameras! Understand, when you play in the D-League you don’t get all that good stuff, you in small arenas with no commentary, just the squeaks and moans of 2nd hand NBA players. 10 days went by and Utah decided to offer me a 1yr deal and I took it. Never before I have I created a player in a video game and felt such a connection, hats off 2K fo real. HHTT APPROVED.  COP THAT NBA2K10 NOW!Don\’t Sweat the Technique – Eric B. & Rakim

NBA LIVE 96 (Power of gods)

NBA Live 96 was the 2nd installment in the epic series and it held its own. When I was young I dreamed of Jordan, I mean not in that way but in the way I wanted to go to the NBA. I realized I would never make it due to my failing grades and thirst for trouble, but in 1997 I found a loophole. My pops was not into buying me entertainment systems so I had to go to my best friend Chad’s crib to play current video games. I remember Chad borrowed NBA Live from a mutual friend and had it playing one eve when I came over. I remember peeping the graphics like damn this aint bad (mind you I was an avid watcher off all things NBA on NBC the theme was crack by the way). Then I seen what would change my life forever, a 7 footer named “JUMPMAN” on the blazers, clearly I thought this was some sort of typo till Chad told me he CREATED HIM!!! I was shocked never before in a game have I seen or heard of making your own character and then embarking on a NBA season. After seeing that visual I later got a genesis and NBA Live 96, I created many characters and embarked on many a season of NBA. I guess my dream did come true I made it to the NBA.
