basketball video games
was just remembering my youth and how i played a bunch of basketball games. I went back and checked some vids on youtube of these old games and it makes me laugh now how bad they were.
my first basketbll game i bought was called pat riley basketball for the sega. Game was impossible to dribble or pass around traffic cause it would get stolen so easily. They had a goofy set up for dunks where it went into close up mode and you had to press the button while a little ball moved to make the shot. The dang ball was so big it looks like its bigger then the rim and i wonder how any shots went down at all.
i played a whole bunch more. "lakers vs bulls", "Jordan vs Bird", "nba superstars", "david robinsons supreme court", "nba action 1994", and of course the classic "nba jam". So what were some of your games and memories? Post some vids.
and check out the 3 point shooting from 3:10 to about 3:45. lulz
Something about the game "Street Hoops" made that my personal favorite. IDK why the hell I loved it so much, but it was by far my favorite basketball game.
My first bball game was Bird vs Dr J on Commodore 64. I used to play it for hours....
Nurse could to get in here quick?! Billy is getting his a$$ whooped in some street hoopz!!!
lmaoo technology has come a long way..... @ tht first video made me laugh
I played a lot of early bball games, one of my favorite being Double Dribble...but the one I got the most fun out of was Slam N Jam for the 3DO. I played it for years and probably would play it now, its that much fun.
I'll tell ya what, I still pull out the NBA Jam's and NBA Hangtime's on MAME. Still fun games but like to play them for sheer nostalgic value alone seeing some of the forgotten players who were relevant when I was growing up.

Use to love this game when I was a kid, you could actucally punch people when they were running and dribbling..reminded me of the old Detriot Pistons..
Why name your game after a violation?
This game was classic and in this video you can see Jordan's reverse layup, I used to do that move all the time, it was no way to stop it IIRC. One of the early games that Jordan was playable on.
Anyone who played this game know the most unstoppable move of all time TOM CHAMBERS double pump from the 3 pt line
This was my first video game. I loved it, and considering that it was 11 years ago, the graphics are not that bad. The other day I was able to put my uncle's old XBox together, and play nba 2k7, the graphics were absolutly horrendus.
Foward to 0:40. I remember the Dr.J highlight in the intro.
Love this one too.
If it even counts...no lie...my first was
talk about a good shooting 7 footer with range.....ahhhhh....they just dont make em like that any more. wait....
all i know is that when i have kid im gonna be that old man talking about back in my days i had to play frickin pat riley basketball. Make him appreciate things more.
