We’ve arrived at another Friday here at the NLSC, so it’s time for another edition of The Friday Five! If this is your first time checking out The Friday Five and you’re wondering what it’s all about, this is a feature that I post every Friday in which I pick a topic that’s related to basketball video games, the real NBA or another area of interest to our community, then either give my thoughts on the topic in five points or compile a Top 5 countdown.
There’s no one “correct” way to play and enjoy basketball video games, though many basketball gamers have strong opinions on the subject. As with any video game community, there are different groups who all have their own expectations of each release and their own gaming philosophy. In this week’s Friday Five, I’m sorting the basketball video gaming community into five groups or categories; the five types of basketball video gamers, if you will.
