Double edged sword. You either want less control whcich produces more random canned animations or you want more control to pick which canned animations will take place.

I could help but laugh when reading this, especially the 40 year old part. It's like an old QB who is savvy but just doesn't have that zip any more. Shoot, any 40 year old non-golfing athlete applies here!

I just think NBA 2K need a few different control methods. One for full control and maybe an easier method.

I have agree. I've been gaming for nearly two decades now and I still get throw by the crazy complicated controls in games like FIFA and NHL. On NCAA or Madden I can do ok on offense, but on defense I'm still a liability.

I don't think the number of controls are bad, I think the fluidity of the controls are. Using MLB The Show as an example: When someone is going to steal and you want to step off the mound and throw the ball, you have to press L1...THEN...use the analog control to throw the ball. If you made it more Fluid to where you can press L1 and flip your analog stick toward the base it needs to go in the same motion its easier, less thought and less gymnastics.

Sports is about repetition and flinch-type reactions. Not do this, then this, then this.

The controls are not just difficult to use but also way too complicated. It's to the point that you can't pick up and play a game like NBA 2K12 or NHL 12 without having to spend days trying to learn the controls and moves. I'm an adult. I don't have time to remember a million moves. If I want to simulate a real basketball game I'm going to go pick up a real basketball and play.

A lot of guys my age feel the same way. I think there should be some kind of balance. Developers need to meet both the hardcore gamers and the casual gamers in the middle.

I prefer simple controls.

NFL Blitz, NBA Jam, Tecmo Bowl, NHL 94, et al.

Anyone can pick up those games and have fun.
