Build your PERFECT NBA game - Using only 2K20 and prior 2K's

Postby Dee4Three on Tue Oct 01, 2019 2:50 am

Hi all,

Thought this would be a fun exercise. As we all know, NEW doesn't always mean the best for all, in fact many prefer past games more, and enjoy certain gameplay aspects/features from past titles. New doesn't always mean 'better" in terms of gameplay, features, or graphics.

The exercise is: Build your perfect game, which can only include gameplay/features/Graphics from NBA 2K20 and past 2K titles. I will start.

Gameplay

Foot planting - 2K16
Player Movement overall - 2k16 or 2K17 (Defense 2K16, Offense 2K17), pace possibly 2K14 this gen
Dribbling - Feel 2K17 - with the 4 sizeup option from 2K16
Shooting feel - 2K17
Post game - 2K16
Variety of driving animations - 2K20
Right stick usage on the perimeter for shooting moves - 2K20
Right stick usage on drives - 2K17
Off ball movement and logic - 2K16
Defense overall - 2K16
Shot blocking - 2K16
Stealing - 2K14 (This gen)
Passing - 2K17
SFX (dribbling. shot blocking, rim, net) - 2K16
SFX (Crowd) - 2K14 this gen

Graphics

Lighting - 2K14 (This gen)
Player models - 2K16
Cyberfaces - 2K20
Gameplay view - 2K16
Close-ups - 2K20
In gameplay presentation - 2K20 or 2K11
Menus - 2K17 with the cool animated players from 2K16, and the team select screen of 2K14 this gen

Features

Jordan Challenge - 2K11
Greatest Mode - 2K12
Roster Content - 2K20
MyTeam - 2K15
MyLeague - 2K20


So if I could build the ultimate game only using 2K's from current and the past, that is how I would build it.

What about you?

Note: I am an offline player, so if you want to add in your preferred online experience, please add your own categories as you see fit. Also, your choices shouldnt be based on "mods" or "modded". I am talking about the default 2Ks games, as they appear on console or PC without mods.

Good call.

And, you could actually take charges in 2K14 (this gen and last gen). I'd have to agree, foul wise 2K14 is probably the best and least frustrating.

I also forgot soundtrack.

This one is really tough... I'd say for this gen, its 2K16 or 2K18. 2K17 and 2K15 soundtracks were pretty bad IMO.

For last gen, 2K9, 2K10, 2K11, 2K12 all had soundtracks I liked for the most part

I really!!!!!!!!!!!! Miss the custom sounds you could add to players in prev gen. I know that could not be added on the Console but that option should be added to PC. Seems like it could be a simple addition I don't know why great feature get taken out. This is the reason NBA Live needs to get even better competition brings awesome product

Custom sounds you could add to players? Maybe I am forgetting something, what games had that and how did it work?
