^Stop quoting everything. There is a button called reply. It's pretty easy for people to realise who you were aiming coments at.

And no I don't follow you around, I come into a thread, and see you're being a total douche and I tell you. I'm your guardian angel if anything, with a sailor's vocab.

Try and use your head.

WOW such a heated debate about video games!!! Even bringing a little political BS into the mix funny stuff for sure. Anyways I have been a NBA Live fan for quite some time and I guess I never thought about it but it could be the comfort factor the EA brand name I have loved the Tiger Woods games and The Madden games so I guess I felt that the game play would be good on the NBA Live series as well and to be honest I have never been impressed with the graphics on the commercials for the 2K series but with people defending each with such conviction I just might have to pick up a copy of 2k6 since I have live06. The only concern I have is that I can pick it up at any video game store used for like $10. But I buy live and after tweaking the game settings and creating any missing players on my team’s roster I go straight to Dynasty mode and lately I have been simulating the games and having more fun being the GM and making trades that work and taking a team that is way over the cap and bringing them under the cap while keeping a good crop of players. So question for the 2K fans dose it have a good DM the one thing I hate about lives DM is the fact that the cap stays at say 50 mil and never changes. I think it should adjust year to year maybe just simulate a 2% increases each new season.

Something I can't understand is why fans have become so passionate about the realism in basketball but keep buying Madden every year?

I understand that now that EA has muscled out the competition people feel the need to satisfy that football jones. Still though, why do so many people care about the accuracy of gameplay in one sport but not the other?

The bad news: In playing a version of Live marked 90% complete, the gameplay was terribly disappointing. The ball physics are all over the place, even the most simple shots appear awkward, and to be honest, the game seems years behind the build of NBA 2K7 that we already have in the office.

Whats so bad about the shot stick that it forced you out of the game?? You do know that you dont have to use it right? I use the button for jumpshots and the shot stick for layups dunks and post moves. It gives you so many options.

Anyway, I cant for the life of me fathom why any real bball fan would choose Live over 2K. Is it because you've been playing Live for so long you're fanboyness prevents you from seeing the truth? 2K is about realism...Live is about anything but realism. To each their own but I just dont get why bball fans play live when 2K is on the market.

my sliders are something like:

game speed 40
fatigue 45

short range 30
medium range 35
long range 35

offensive rebounding 10
defensive rebounding 90


I forget the rest but it works well, i get realisitic scores and results from NBA Live. I doubt Ill need to move away from the Live series.

You just misread it. I left 2k5 for 2k6 just because of the shot stick. Without improvements like these, I won't buy another basketball game.

I guess I'm the only one that bought the game because of the new innovation. Once an idiot, always an idiot.
