NBA 2K18 (PS4) for PlayStation 4
It's always nice to get a chance to praise a sports game made by a company besides EA, and boy oh boy, if you're into your basketball, Visual Concepts and 2K Sports' NBA 2K18 is a game you need in your collection like, yesterday. As the title implies, it primarily focuses on a simulation of the National Basketball Association across a variety of game modes. These include the MyGM and MyLeague modes, which where of particular emphasis during the development process, and MyCareer mode, in which the player creates their own basketballer and takes them through an expansive career in the league. Additional bonuses include team lime ups based on real-life ones from the league's past (alongside its main roster, reflecting the current seasons players), and a licensed soundtrack featuring 49 songs.
