Video Gamers: So there are three different NBA games?
 
Someone give me a crash course in basketball video games. As people type info below I am editing it into this post. List every basketball video game that is still in existence

There is:

NBA Live 07 (EA Sports)
NBA 2K7 (2K Sports)
NBA 07 (Sony)

QUESTION: Are all three NBA games above similar, in that you use the real players, play 5 on 5, etc.? Or is one somehow drastically different?


NBA Street Volume 1/2/3 (3v3 streeetball game with NBA players)

NBA Ballers Phenom (1v1 streetball game, possibly 2v2 or 3v3 as well)

And 1 Streetball (streetball with And 1 mixtape players)

NBA 2k7 and NBA Live 07 are the two major ones. Occupy essentially two different spectrums in gaming. 2k7 focuses on realistic basketball simulation, while Live caters to a more arcadish laid back atmosphere.

"NBA 07" is like the stunted little scrawny brother of 2k7 and Live. I don't even know anybody who has it...I barely have heard anything about it.



On top of those 3, there are games like NBA Street, which are the bane of my existence.

As horrible as Nba live 07 is this year, I dont see how NBA 07 is better than it is though.

NBA 06 was actually VERY entertaining...i hope NBA 07 is as well.

NBA 06, you start off as a scrub in training camp trying to make the final cut. you have to master drills and play 1on1 3on3 etc.

then you make the team and are placed into the starting lineup to prove your worth.

the gaming is different in that you dont play all 4 quarters of every game. you are put into scenarios like 10 seconds left, down by 2, you have to steal the ball pass to the SF for a three. if you do it exactly you pass, if you dont, you fail and have to retry until you do. its challenging and something different so i found it enjoyable.

Yeah, it actually kind of sounds like a good time. I'm definately getting NBA 2K7, but I'll probably look into getting NBA 07 a little later on.

So the NBA 06 game series isn't normal full sim like the other two, it's an "alternative" type of game involving training and scenarios, not regular 5-on-5 season/league play?

My friend has NBA '06 for his PSP, I believe it's a simulation game.

You know, 5 on 5.
