    Default Recommended Genesis Basketball Games

    I've never been into Basketball much but have been playing NBA Live '95 a lot recently. I know there are many Basketball games for the Genesis but i'd like to play another one or two.

    Can anyone recommend one or two Basketball games, other than the NBA Live series that's easy to play?

    Thanks.

    Live is a big one, so you're good for the most part.

    Coach K is the college version of Live, so it's the same thing, but I seem to play that more than Live.

    Hang Time and NBA Jam keep most satisfied.

    Pat Riley Basketball. One of the first best-selling Genesis sports games.....BEFORE Madden & EA's own basketball series.

    NBA Jam T.E. is all you need. Although, I did like NBA Action. And Arch Rivals is alright.

    So far I checked out the ROM for Pat Riley Basketball (which I didn't know existed). It's got that arcadish feel like Tecmo Super Bowl which is what i'm looking for. I'll check out Arch Rivals and NBA Jam tonight.

    Thanks for the responses.

    I always hated how Arch Rivals pauses after EVERY DAMN BASKET to show a cut scene you've already seen 12 times.

    My personal favorite is David Robinson's Supreme Court.
    The Mega Drive was far inferior to the NES in terms of diffusion rate and sales in the Japanese market, though there were ardent Sega users. But in the US and Europe, we knew Sega could challenge Nintendo. We aimed at dominating those markets, hiring experienced staff for our overseas department in Japan, and revitalising Sega of America and the ailing Virgin group in Europe.

    Then we set about developing killer games.

    I've always liked this one too even though it is usually panned by most everyone else. Glad to see I'm not alone in liking it!

    I do like NBA Jam T.E., I have the 32X version but I don't think that means a whole lot.

    In the end, I'm much more a fan of football games than anything else.

    I disagree, but I know I am in the minority that Pat Riley Basketball sucks big time.

    But I like David Robinson's Supreme Court too. I might do a review of that one of these days.

    Safe Bets: NBA Jam. NBA jam TE, College Slam, NBA Live, Any of the pre live EA Basketball games (Bulls v Blazers, Lakers v Celtics) are at least okay.

    Theres a neat little one where you get to play Jordan v Bird one on one, but dont pay too much for that because the game play is limited to.. one on one.

    Ones to avoid: Dick Vitale's Awesome Baby! Basketball, NCAA Final Final Four, Jammit, Double Dribble, NBA All Star Challenge.
    Sega-16's Resident Sports Authority. Chief Heckler of the Midwest.

    Next up on the tee:
    Tecmo Super Bowl III
    Bass Masters Classic

    You know, you could do a rundown of the available basketball games for the Genesis! That way I might find out the name of the first basketball game I played for the Genesis (I've looked up screenshots for all the games named so far, but I still can't find it )

    Pat Riley Basketball is awesome, I also enjoyed David Robinson Supreme Court. I was really dissapointed in Double Dribble for the Genesis. It's nowhere near as good as the NES version, IMO. I bought it the first day it came out and still own it, but man was it a let-down.
