It seems another week has gone by, so it’s time for another edition of The Friday Five! For those of you who are checking out The Friday Five for the first time and are 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.
We’re often talking about the things that we want to see added to basketball video games in terms of game modes and features. As with any gaming community, there are a lot of good ideas being thrown out there that developers would be wise to keep in mind. It should also be said that basketball game developers certainly come up with some fine ideas themselves. However, every so often a suggestion is made or a feature is introduced that just doesn’t seem like a good idea. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion of course, but these are five features that I just don’t believe are needed in basketball video games.
