Best NBA Video Games

Lists the 10 best NBA video games from 2K to NBA live
The Top Ten
1 NBA Hangtime
2 NBA 2K14

Another old one that really stood out to me. There are lots of cool things in this one. You can be legends, current teams, or some weird things like pandas or stick figures. You can really dunk like crazy in this one.

Best game I HAVE played. It has amazing graphics and gameplay. It isn't impossible like some of the others too.

A few things I would like them to add in 2K15 are the MyPlayer customization, the long loading, and the high prices in the VC store.

The best one out there out of them all. Hands down.

3 NBA 2K11

Why is this not number 1? It shares qualities just like your typical arcade style Ballers game and has the never-ending joy ride where you are given the best graphics, commentary, and gameplay. Complete with over 15 interesting and fascinating game modes that put your brain-rattling experience into full throttle. And what else? A 'Michael Jordan' mode. Give me a game that will put you in the zone better than this. I'll be waiting.

This is the best 2K ever made, and also the last good one. 2K13 and beyond is pure trash and I'm glad I never bought any of them.

4 NBA Elite
5 NBA Showdown
6 NBA 2K17

The MyCareer is amazing and it's addicting.

Awesome MyCareer with Michael B. Jordan.

The game I play the most these days.

7 NBA Pro-Hoops
8 NBA 2K12
9 NBA 2K16

This is way better than NBA 2K15, which, in my opinion, was really horrible. This 2K has way better graphics, has a better MyCareer mode, and it has better reviews.

This one is the best, no question.

If they were on the same team then easy wins. Also, my favorite 2K.

10 NBA 2K13

The last of the 2K games I have listed but it still made it in the top 5. It is pretty much the same as 2K12 except for some little things.

It's one of the older games but still one of the best. Its MyCareer is fun and things in the VC store aren't expensive.

With Wilt Chamberlain? I will buy.

The Contenders
11 NBA Street

Last one: that's right the oldest one yet, NBA Street. Let's face it, the main reason people bought the GameCube was to play this. I'm not saying it's bad. There are many more games. I'm just doing 7.

12 NBA 2K15

I have high hopes for this game on the next-gen version, seeing how 2K14 went.

13 NBA Basketball Showdown
14 NBA 2K18
15 NBA 2K19

Really good MyTeam. People hate on this game but looking back, it was a good game and I had some good memories playing it.

16 NBA 2K20
17 NBA Street Vol 2

This and NBA Ballers are top-tier PS2 basketball games. Endless fun from my childhood.

18 NBA Live 2003
19 NBA Live 14

The graphics are not good in this game but I like the dynasty gameplay and the realistic stats.
