The Evolution of Basketball Video Games

Hey guys,

With all of the exciting features going into 2K12 with a focus on realism being a high priority, I thought it would be cool to show this youtube video I dug up regarding the evolution of bball video games.

For everybody whining and complaining and begging for 2K to essentially recreate the entire NBA experience in real life and transfer it to a video game flawlessly, why don't we take a look and see what people were playing back in 79 to get their fix



With this in mind, I think 2K has done a H3LL of a job. Sometimes it's hard to appreciate what we have if we don't know where we came from...just sayin!

I feel the same way, I played every single one of those games, that brings back alot of memories lol. they should of added Hoops Basketball, Run and Shoot, Inside Drive, Lakers vs. Celtics or even Arch Rivals in the video! its actually about 10 other classics they left out but still a great Vid.

If the internet was as big back then as it is now, "we" would have still complained about pixelated headbands and accessories.

Re: The Evolution of Basketball Video Games

Nice video, i remember all of these games and have played them all, you missed som games that i think are a bit different like David Robinson supreme court on sega(-93) , or TV sports baskettball on Amiga (-90) it was one of the first games where you could create your own player and put skill points in different skills(damn i played that game alot)

Scary how long we have come since then

Re: The Evolution of Basketball Video Games

This video is missing so real classics....ya'll remember Lakers vs Celtics, Bulls vs. Lakers etc. What about Hoopz on nes or Arch Rivals....I've possibly played almost every basketball game ever made.

p.s. Great video

We do have the right to complain...we pay 65 dollars of our hard earn money on 2k...I could see if the game was free then it would be pointless to complain
