David writes video game and technical news and reviews


  1. I used to play a lot of sports games like Madden and the NHL series. I’ve always wanted to try 2K’s basketball series, but I’ve heard some pretty negative things. NBA 2K21 could be a good jumping on point for me, but I’ll wait for the reviews. I don’t like sports games that are too involved (naturally, I don’t want them too simple either, but some games have got too complex for me).

  2. I’ve been out of the sports games world for quite a while… NBA 2K21 has some really nice graphics.

  3. Thank you for the details, not very into sports games but I’m glad that it’s for all the platforms. Images and videos look great, great article David, would love to read about some mobile games too, I just noticed the other day that there are huge CR tournaments all over the world haha!
