The newest game of the National Basketball Association or the NBA franchise is NBA 2k18, which is the nineteenth in the series and was developed by Visual Concepts and released by 2K Sports. The NBA games are based on basketball and are simulated to feel like the player is actually playing a basketball game. NBA 2k18 features improved graphics, animations, and a better story from the latest game, NBA 2K17.

The three modes you can play in the game are MyCareer, MyGM, and MyLeague. In career mode, you can customize your basketball player any way you would like to — whether it is a complete stranger or a familiar face . And you are playing that character in a story of your choosing. Whether you’re a point guard or shooting guard, you can choose what position you play. MyGM and MyLeague game modes task the player with managing all basketball operations for a specific team. MyGM is more focused on realism, whereas MyLeague offers more customization options.

Some people such as the writers for GameInformer are saying that the NBA series is reaching its retirement period. The NBA 2K18 is not worth purchasing because the current price is $60, while NBA 2k17 is only $20. The only real differences between the two games are the stories, graphics, and animations. Yes, NBA 2K18 is better in all of these categories, but the price is just way too high for a basic repeat of the last game.
