    This will be the first time since I started buying my own games about 17 years ago I won't be buying an NBA game. I may change that but the 2K games in the last few years have prioritised everything I can think of (without actually thinking about it) before game play. They made a few good changes here and there but only minor ones in my opinion.

    Yeah, NBA2K15 and 16 have been two of my most played games on Xbox One, eventhough they suck for a achievement hunter. But NBA2K17 was a disaster and the way 2K handled support cases and glitched achievements made me sick, at times you could not even start the game without reinstall it - and it was a massive game to reinstall. When my save file got corrupt and the support did not even bother answering me, I made a promise to not buy NBA2K18, no matter what. If 2K want to focus on other things than a stable and improved product, they wont get my money.

    So, this year I'll give EA a new chance, hope they get their game out this year. Looks like it atleast, otherwise I'll keep on grinding NBA2K16.

    I completely agree. Had all the same issues but I WILL be getting 2k18 just for the fact that its a social game for my friends, co-workers, and relatives to play. If they preferred to play Halo, I would probably be on that game lol.

    This will be the first NBA 2K game I never play. They have fallen off so damn hard to me. This is a perfect example of what happens when there's no competition. They went from constantly innovating and feeling like they had something to prove, to turning the franchise into a giant money pit.

    With you on this. I love basketball and video games but 2K has stretched the friendship too far this year.

    The terrible servers, the blatant cash grabs across all modes, the constant need to reinstall just to start the game... it's too much.
