Default NBA Live '10 vs. NBA 2K10

Which one are you going to get? What features will make one better than the other?

I haven't bought a basketball game in a while, but need some diversity in my gaming (I only own COD4 & Gran Turismo 5 Prologue). The last NBA game I bought was Live '08... which was okay, but impossible to play defense on, and too difficult to find the shooting stroke for some players while taking 3PT shots.

So, which one do you like, and are going to buy in October?

I have played live ever since 2000....Live 09 is a good game and I'm sure Live '10 will be even better. Combine that with a nice little HD Tv and I'm good.

2K9 is boring and 2K10 will be even more boring

NBA 2K10 is a first day buy.

Live 2010 is a rent and then buy if it's good.


EA hired (stole) NBA 2k's lead programmer to do Live 2010, so it may be much improved. If not... I won't buy it.

You just know NBA Live 10 is going to stink. The only way that series can be fixed is if they build a new engine from the ground up, because that is what is wrong with it. Lord knows they have tried the past couple of seasons, but you just can not turn a Lada into a BMW. And I just don't think they are going to make a new engine right now.

Live is like a 6'2 guy trying to be a center in the NBA. The guy could be more talented than Hakeem, stronger than Shaq and have the hunger of Michael Jordan, but it's just not going to work out. No amount of talent, basketball IQ or training is going to help, because at the end he is still a 6'2 motherfokka.


2k still needs to step it up though. They set a very decent standard with NBA 2k8, but there is just still a ton of room for improvement and I am not going to play the same game with a roster update three years in a row. They need to really slick out their presentation at the very least.

That would be the GOAT guard then.

You shouldn't really trust IGN much. They are some of the most biased mofo's in the gaming world.

However, 2K pretty much has been dominating. Live died when they put in the Superstar stuff.

I've been playing basketball games for about 20 years now and without a doubt, the 2K series is the best. The most realistic basketball out there if that's what you're looking for.

Is this even a question?

EA has been burning consumers on buggy games for how long? I'll consider Madden, I wont consider Live. I'll buy a Mario's backyard basketball game before I buy NBA Live.
