We all enjoy competition in different forms, especially when it’s friendly from time to time. There are a lot of competitive multiplayer games to choose from if you’re looking for some competitive gaming. But what about when it comes to gaming with friends, especially locally? As somebody who prefers competitive multiplayer games I often find it hard to introduce my friends who are not to into gaming as much as I am (and who happen to be much more conservative and deliberately choosing to stick to the “good old”) to some of the new games that I’ve discovered. Fortunately for both me and them, there is one game that we can always go back to and enjoy it in all of it’s glory no matter how many times played before.
NBA 2K franchise is an excellent pastime for we want to have some competitive gaming with your friends locally (or online for that matter). Why’s that? It’s simple really.
The game revolves around basketball and pretty much everybody no matter how much you’re not into sports, you’re bound to know the basic rules of basketball. If somehow you managed to stay ignorant about the rules of this world renown sport it is not a big deal really since the entire game and all of its rules can be memorized and learned in 10 or so minutes. Pretty neat.
However, don’t be fooled by the games apparent simplicity. As easy to get into as this game is it is equally hard to master and there is absolutely always room for some further improvements. There are literally thousands of guides online covering each and every aspect of the game separately. From more mundane guides covering topics like VC farming to those explaining how to master the art of dribbling and movement, there is literally something new to learn on every new step if you’re looking to hone your mastery of this game. Possibly the very best part about all of this is that it’s completely optional. Getting familiar with the controls and mastering the game surely has it’s benefits but it does not mean playing with somebody just started can’t be enjoyable for both of you after just a short while.
It is very easy to get into and but it may be a bit harder to let got because this game is pure fun and playing with or against friends in this case only benefits it’s fun factor, amplifying it a lot. Definitely something you should keep in mind next time you’re looking for some quality pass time for you and your friends while getting a chance to compete at the same time.
Of course, tastes do differ and you might not even like the game as much as I do but, as someone who plays a lot of games and specifically enjoys competitive titles I believe this is one of those games that can offer something to everyone, no matter what kind of video games you like to play. So give it a go, no?
