    UPDATE: Many of you guys pointed out that EA makes NBA Live, which is a viable alternative to NBA 2K. We missed mentioning that, thank you for the correction!

    You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure that one out. People that buy sports videogames are idiotic meatheads who couldn't count to 10, let alone stand up to shitty monetization practices.

    Only morons would pay $60 for some dumbass sports videogame. This should shock literally no one

      them owning all the rights to professional level sports? technically no, since anyone could still make that game, they just would not be allowed any of the teams from that league. so they could get the minor league teams or make up their own ones. It was a whole thing back in the 90s.
      ...unless you are talking about the ads, which again no. That's just severe exploitation of the playerbase. if it was a large enough portion of the game they could be sued for false advertising(which would be _hilarious_ with the context) but it seems to be regulated to load screens and doesnt change gameplay.

    2k has been such a huge money grab the last couple years. They’ve made the game much more complicated to progress without purchasing their virtual currency. You can either grind for hours or spend another $75 to save a bunch of time and STILL not be near maxing out your character. They know what they’re doing, the fans of the game have been complaining, and they’re not doing shit to fix it. I will credit the actual developers for listening and being interactive on social media to improve gameplay. I’m probably going to boycott 2k20 because I’m only expecting this to get worse and they implement more money grabbing shit. I’m really hoping NBA Live can pull through and make a decent game but they haven’t been able to compete with the near monopoly that is 2k.
