2010 GR Awards: Best Sports Game

Posted on Wednesday, December 22 @ 10:23:25 Eastern by Mike_Bryant


Way back in the day (and I mean way back in the day, when plaid was popular the first time around), groups of people would gather in a cave of audio/visual splendor known as an arcade. Within these halls of gaming were the most stunning, most advanced examples of the state of video games. One cabinet that fed my pre-teen life savings was NBA Jam.

With the ridiculous dunks and outrageous commentary, all wrapped in a package of seizure-inducing graphics, NBA Jam would ensnare even the palest 90-lb. weakling into its basketball hijinx. I have waited a long time for this same experience to be brought to my home console. The wait stopped this past fall, and I have not been disappointed.

The game was beefed up with various modes, but we all wanted the classic 2-on-2 match-ups that require quick thumbs and no prior knowledge of the sport of basketball whatsoever. That was heartily delivered, with the completely over-the-top presentation that we all remember and love.  Far beyond a sports game, NBA Jam is first and foremost a fun game, and this time around, there are no token machines necessary.
