Anthony Nash of The Koalition writes: When you’re the big dog on the block, it’s tough to consistently find ways to change. Games in the NHL and Madden NFL series are often accused of rarely progressing, and with so few games to compete with, it’s not hard to see why they don’t. The NBA 2K series has long been the only NBA basketball simulator that fans could flock to, but after last year’s constant complaints regarding the pay-to-win model of the game and the NBA Live series making a comeback, the franchise finds itself in turmoil for the first time in a long time. Can it bounce back and continue its reign as the king of hoops games with NBA 2K19? It’s complicated.
