I’ve been playing NBA 2K16 for a few weeks now. The first thing I did was make my favourite team, the Perth Wildcats. If you haven’t yet, you can see all about it here.
I do suck at this game, but not in the conventional way. At first I was playing on the difficulty of Rookie. I must admit, even though this was my usual habit of choosing the easiest difficulty possible, I kept winning games. And I don’t mean just winning games. I was beating the absolute crap out of every team I versed.
To try and rectify this and make the game a little more interesting I changed the difficulty setting to Pro. I’m about nine games into my eighty-two game season and I still seem to be winning pretty much every game. The exception being when I verse a team who is known to excel, such as Golden State, who Steph Curry plays for or LeBron with the Caveliers. I’m not just losing these games. I ‘m getting my ass handed to me on a silver platter. Actually it’s not even a silver platter. Or bronze platter. More like a ‘did not place’ platter.
It’s been a couple of years since I’ve played an NBA 2K game. I’m pretty sure the last one was 2K14, which came out in 2013. The only mode I ever used to play was MyCareer because I liked the idea of being your own player and progressing through your time in the league.
I guess it’s because the only team in the NBA I ever liked was the Indiana Pacers and since Reggie Miller left I stopped caring. However for the last couple of seasons I’ve been following my local NBL team here in Perth, Western Australia.
The Perth Wildcats!
To be completely honest,
I don’t have the time to take all the games I’ve enjoyed this year, line them up and compare them to one another, weighing up the differences in styles and gameplay, then trying to justify reasons as to why one of them is my most favourite. Heck no. So Instead I’m just writing about all of my favourite games this year and why they are awesome! Some of them I have finished and others I haven’t. Most of them I sucked at. Because I am wanting to be unbiased and don’t want to rank one game better than the other, I used a random generator to determine the order of which to write about.
