Welcome everyone to another Friday here at the NLSC and 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 give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to basketball video games, the real NBA or another area of interest to our community, either as a list of five items or in the form of a Top 5 countdown.
The announcement of Rising Star mode in NBA Live 14 came as very welcome news as single player career modes have become extremely popular in sports games, to the point where they’re basically a must for any title. Given how much I’ve enjoyed MyCAREER in NBA 2K13, I’ll certainly be giving it a look. However, I’m still very much a Dynasty Mode fan, so I’m hoping that it has also received adequate attention as NBA Live looks to make a strong comeback. As such, this week I’m taking a look at the five things that I believe Dynasty Mode needs to do or have to provide a deep and enjoyable experience in NBA Live 14.
