If you haven't played 2k, you don't know what you're missing. Here:
1. Take your NBA Live 2006 disc, spit on it. Then get a pen and scratch all over the side with the data on it.
2. Break the CD in half.
3. Throw it out the window.
4. Take the game case.
5. Load it with dog ****.
6. Set it on fire.
7. Throw that out your window as well.
8. Go to EBGames.
9. Buy NBA 2k7, or wait a few months for NBA 2k8.
10. Have fun playing an actual video game. Live doesn't deserve the title "video game".
By the way, NBA Live 2005 was easily the best one of them all. The rest suck.
The last Live game I got was '04. I enjoyed it, but I wasn't really "in" to Basket Ball back then, so I didn't follow the series. But I must say, I think '08 will be the game to turn the franchise around. I'm probably the only member on this board anticipating Live '08. btw, why hasn't anything been released about 2k8? Besides the dunk Contest video? Are they hiding something? lol. Anyway, I'll be purchasing Live '08 the day (Or week) it comes out. Despite what you people, or critics say, I known I'll enjoy it, and any other true BBall fan would.
