NBA Live was once great, starting out as NBA Playoffs, then NBA Showdown, then NBA Live. From NBA Live 95 through NBA Live 2005, the series was amazing.
Then it started to go downhill, but thanks to Mike Wang, NBA Live 10 was pretty good. Then Wang went back to work on NBA 2K11 and NBA Elite 11 almost came out and the franchise has yet to recover, although Live 18 and 19 have been promising, led by their surprising career mode called “The One”.
At the end of the day, competition is needed with every sports game, including basketball. Find out what happened to NBA Live below.
