So about those NFL rights...

Post by Cheddah_Cheez on Thu Oct 14, 2010 6:38 pm

Here's hoping 2k gets a shot to make another pro football game. Now I haven't played organized basketball since I gave it up to play football in college, but based on my knowledge of the game and my love of the NBA, 2k did a hell of a job with 2k11. I'd give it the edge in "most realistic sports game ever" over the Show simply because basketball is much harder to duplicate in a game, and they pretty much nailed it. I can only hope to image seeing what 2k could do with a next gen NFL game.

Take Two has been selling off all their resources because they are broke in hopes to lure the NFL into developing competition within video games. I think EA could easily outbid any offer Take Two makes so because it will most certainly come down to money, I'm not counting on it. I hope it happens. The NFL could make more dollars for the players by having two game licenses. EA could just pay them what take two offers plus what they already pay the NFL. I know EA has the money because they didnt revise shit really from last year yet we buy the new game each year. Take Two would be doing a great thing if the can pull this one off

Yeah I use to love playing NFL2K on the Dreamcast and PS1. One of the best football games I ever play, I was never into Madden until my brother bought the 2002 one I believe. I liked it, but 2K was alot better in my opinion. I would love for the NFL to drop this exclusive rights BS once their contract with EA is up, that way we have some healthy competition.

With 2K or other companies allowed to make a NFL game it will make EA that much more motivated to make a better product, thus making us all winners in the end! Probably wishful thinking, but who knows.

By the way Cheddar, how is NBA2K? I use to love the old NBA2Ks on Dreamcast. Live use to be my favorite but then they fell off. I know Jordan is finally in it and they got MJ modes, do they have any old Knicks teams in the game to play against Jordan? Or even old Celtics, Pistons, Lakers teams? I am thinking of going out tommorrow and picking up a used copy if Gamestop has any to try it out, havent bought a BBall game in a while.

Yeah I was a big Live fan too, back in the PSone days until they started falling off then I went to 2k until the last 3 years when I was forced to play Live bc my roomate was an idiot. This years 2k is the best hoops game I've ever played. They got nearly everything right. Even the AI is smart, which is tough to do, especially in bball games. They have a ton of classic teams from all the jordan playoff runs. Cavs, Lakers, Knicks, Blazers, Celtics...you name em, theyre in there. I sampled the Jordan modes once when I first got it, but wasn't used to the controls yet, or actually playing a bball game where you have to play smart, and got raped. Haven't tried since, I'm mainly focusing on my franchise with the Nets'.

Nice, thanks for the info.

Haven't bought a bball game in a while, but once I find a used copy I will give this one a try, especially since I loved the NBA in the 90s and can relive those moments when my Knicks battled Jordans Bulls, Millers Pacers and Hardaways Heat.

funny thing is ... its our faults ( consumers) for buying EA games .. if we all invested in games by 2k they could destroy this monster we accidentally helped create with nfl called "madden" ...

I've been saying this for awhile now...I think it is wishful thinking. EA has the bread to shut the nfl up about giving rights to another comepany like 2k sports. Its clear just like in basketball the EA needs compeition. I've not a huge basketball fan as far as watching it untill the playoffs but 2k11 and even 10 is more authentic hands down than live. In live if u get someone release down they are automatic. I got beat by a guy at my job who shot 35 3 pointers with mo williams and hit 31 of them like he is ray allen or someone. 2k11 is different from 10 as far as ball handling is better. The physics are better u can tell weight and momentum matter. They have a lot of different lay ups and dunks depending on attributes and angle towards the basket. And my player is really different and a lot harder to build ur player up. Which is the only thing I play on nba 2k11. But anyways I kno for a fact that 2k would push the envelope of gameplay given the opportuniyt. EA needs this and stop dicking us around. As far as best. Sports game I would have to give it to fifa still but nba2k is right there.

I love nba 2k11 and I dont love bball Im all football no baseball or basketball ( always playoffs for all sports though lol )

but the make a player is a b!tch for me lol but it makes it worth it ... trust me you dont want the whole oh look I created a hall of famer game 1 .. u fight it out n work your @ss off to get drafted on your team you can do drills like a player who works hard or slack and skip them ( wich you miss out on player points ..but save time ..)

and there's the fact they say you're name they do somewhat of a pregame show and you work to gain minutes plus there's reporters at the end that ask you a question and how you answer it affects how the league looks at you as a star team chemistry and local fan bas popularity ( get booed..in ur own stadium if it gets low..talk about realistic lol)


Its such a pain but you gotta love it its what we want not some easy walk threw bs ..

We all suck...I got close to 20 games in and I'm a 48 overall lol...I got my release down but my attributes are so trash that I miss a lot shooting 34% for the season so far. Its so hard its addicting...I gotta play atleast 1 game a day...only thing its missing is contract talk and someway to spend your money. I already requested a trade to haha and the crowd be like trade em trade em...its funny but they shut up when I score 24 points lol
