Br reports: "Let's face it: video games have changed a lot since NBA Jam's heyday. Back in 1993, we played our games using controllers that featured 8-direction D-pads and three buttons. The Sega Genesis boasted a whopping 64 kilobytes of RAM. When we wanted to play, we popped in a cartridge, not a disc.
The point is, games during this era weren't particularly complex, deep, or advanced-the existing technology wouldn't allow it. This didn't prevent games like NBA Jam from being a total blast to play.
Even in today's gaming environment of high-definition graphics, motion-sensitive controllers, and surround sound, NBA Jam stands the test of time. The game is just as fun to play as it ever was."
