2k and madden is cool and all but i mean sometimes i miss the street basketball

the street football approach

ssx tricky

i sometimes do not want a game super realistic all the time i just want imagine my self in another world when im playing a game....

even a remake of street vol 2 basketball would be nice to try out.....

make a better def jam as well i remember def jam icon was a flop....

for basketball fantasy it dont get better than nba jam/playgrounds. street might be cool for people looking for a "realistic" fantasy arcade basketball game i suppose.

as for NFL. every since ea got the nfl license. nothing mut madden simulator games. unfortunately.

FIFA street tried to be "urban" and ended up really cringy. I'd support a grassroots game based around five a side with interesting locations but no more "that keeper is a proper rude boy" shite.

Would love a new Def Jam so long as it plays like the gen 6 games, not the trash gen 7 version.

Easy, bring Scott Henshaw back. Throw a bunch of money at him.

Def Jam wouldn’t work in 2019. The artists still signed there wouldn’t fill a fighting game roster, and the rappers from the older games would never allow it.

I would love to play a fighting game with Joe Budden in it though,..

Perhaps, not enough buyers of the previous games. Why make a game if they don't expect to get a good return on it?

Nba street vol 2 was dope, as was nfl street, ssx, def jam fight for ny I'll still break out if the right friends come over.

I downloaded steep on my ps4 and I gotta say its pretty fun, its not as arcade as ssx, but its not over realistic, kinda mad I slept on this game I like it alot.
