It was NBA Live 2005. Back in 2005, as an 8-year old, I would wake up early in weekends just to play this game.

I think it was NCAA Final Four 2001 on PS1. Had Mateen Cleaves on the cover. :lol: First NBA game was Live 2001 on PS2

It was Basketball for the Atari 2600, and One-on-One (Dr. J vs Larry Bird) for ColecoVision. Still play those old systems every once in a while.

Of course the graphics are dated, but the gamplay for some of those oldies is pretty damn good. It's why I'm still rocking the PS2 GTAs.

I'm still a fan of those GTA games as well. As far as the basketball games are concerned, that's actually a Friday Five column I want to write: five older games that I can still play, or something along those lines. I have four in mind, but I'm still making comparisons for my fifth choice.

Not the first one I played, but I believe the oldest I've ever played.

Double Dribble in my old Nes... Commonly known as Family Game here in Argentina

When my parents bought my first PC back in 1998, I went to buy an Encarta CD.... but I come with NBA Live 98 with Tim Hardaway in the cover... My parents were a bit upset with me (i was 9 years old) :mrgreen:

I'd say NBA Live 98 has actually held up better. Retro gaming is still fun, but all those old encyclopedias have been well and truly replaced by online resources. ;)

Lakers versus Celtics and the NBA Playoffs on the Sega Genesis. I'd say that was around 1990-91 when I was in 4th grade.

I'm going to say it was most likely NBA 2K2 for the Gamecube, but there's a small chance it was NBA In The Zone '98 for the Nintendo 64. I also remember playing a game with Mitch Richmond on the Wizards around the time, but after some research on YouTube & at my local retro gaming store, I don't think it was on the N64, and Richmond was on the Lakers by the time the Gamecube was released, so that game will most likely be lost to the annals of history.

Richmond on the Wizards...that'd have to be a game from the 1999 season to the 2001 season. Off the top of my head, that'd encompass NBA Live 99-2001, NBA Inside Drive 2000, NBA Jam 99 and 2000, NBA ShootOut 2000 & 2001, Fox Sports NBA Basketball 2000, and possibly a couple of others that aren't springing immediately to mind.

I know it had to have been a N64 sim game with both The Rock and Rip Hamilton, so that narrows it down to;
NBA Live 2000
NBA Courtside 2
NBA In The Zone 2000

Of course, part of me thinks it's just me misremembering 2K2, because the pause screen I remember is exactly like the one for 2K2. Maybe I've just mashed up 2K2 with Courtside 2 to create some sort of false memory, like a basketball video game Shazzam.

Definitely a classic. Indeed, I just posted a Wayback Wednesday feature on it: http://www.nba-live.com/ww-lakers-vs-ce ... -playoffs/
