When it comes to basketball video games, naturally, our minds automatically go to the 2K franchise, and it’s easy to understand why. 2K has reached wide-scale popularity on a global level and is now synonymous with being the basketball game that represents the NBA. But this wasn’t always the case. Longtime basketball fans know that there was actually a point when 2K was considered inferior to other franchises such as NBA Live.

Honorable mention: ‘Wii Sports’
If you know, then you know. Wii Sports is a timeless classic, and the basketball games were ultra-competitive while also fun. If you can master Wii Sports, then you can master anything.
One thing is for sure, these games all made a huge impact on the basketball gaming landscape that we all know today. Hopefully, these throwbacks brought back a wave of nostalgia that we all need to experience from time to time. If you still have your old consoles, consider picking these games up as a blast from the past.
