No, don't stop. We need competition beetween sports franchises in gaming. Push on and don't stop or the 'winner' will become lazy
EA and competition in sports games don't belong in the same sentence. They've had healthy competition in many different sports genres and the ones they could, they monopolised the licenses to effectively kill the competition. Poor Konami in PES were feeding off of scraps with their CL license.. EA went and bought that too. With them, there is no such thing as healthy competition.
"Since the release of the first NBA 2K game, EA have arguably been left behind in 2Ks dust in the basketball video game category." I don't know about that, Nba live was the basketball game to get until Nba live 07 came out.
If you look at Metacritic NBA2K games have constantly outdone NBA Live. And a lot forget how much of a jump the original NBA2K was as it was only on the Sega Dreamcast which many gamers ignored due to pure ignorance and lack of knowledge on just how great that console was.
The last good ones were Live 04 n 05 for ps2 era n Live 06 last gen
Dear EA just stop making games full stop.
EA stop making any games by that note.
I wouldn't suggest them to stop. I hope they continue to do better because 2k has been making some questionable and alarming decisions. I also wish EA didn't have the Monopoly on the NFL. What I ultimately wish is a company that doesn't participate in shady practices took them both on in an impressive way.
I want them to stop making NFL games so 2K can get the license back.
2k made a football game In 2008 , and it was terrible.
I think he means an official game, with official non retired players, playing in actual stadiums and actual financial backing. Not scraps thrown together because EA took all the rest away.
Yeah, what i'm saying is just because NFL 2k5 was good, doesn't mean that 2k would make a better game than Madden.
That's because it lacked everything that made NFL2K great. And not just the NFL license either. I guarantee if 2K got the license back they would make a better game than Madden. There was never a bad NFL2K game.
This is obviously from a 2k fanboy who can’t see the forest because of the trees.2k has become pay to win and are getting worse with every generation. Ea still blows but 2k is basically nickel and dimming their fans.
