Wow, thought this would never comeback hence I loved 2K5.
And 2K has basically destroyed the realism of the NBA franchise. Let alone shown the inability to consistently host a decent gaming experience.
NBA live isn't any better. Even though NBA 2k has gone stale... It's still the best basketball sim
Yeah, but I am tired of Madden
I'm tired of Madden too. I still fire up a good game of 2k5.
