NBA 2K11 and the Top 10 Basketball Video Games of All Time

On October 5th, the new releases of NBA Jam and NBA 2K11 will be released in stores. NBA Elite 11 (Formerly NBA Live) has been postponed at this current point to March 31, 2011. I have high hopes on Jam and 2K11. Most importantly NBA 2K11, with the Michael Jordan modes being put into the mix.

We can go back to Basketball on the Atari 2600 in 1979 to find the roots of video game basketball. Basketball in video games has made great strides over the past thirty years and I expect 2K11 to be the next leap in progress. There have been other memorable titles such as Double Dribble, Arch Rivals, NCAA Basketball and Coach K basketball in the past. Here though, I am focusing on NBA games.

This is a list that is hard to put into a solid top ten. If we wanted, we could just take the last ten games that were put out over the past four years and say those are the best ten. That wouldn't be reasonable though; this list is for groundbreaking or truly influential games over the years.

I have high hopes on this game and believe it can give the top basketball games a run for their money. Why not expect that from the greatest player of all-time? Here are the ten games I have chosen to stand strong as the ten best against the incoming NBA 2K11 and the new NBA Jam.

If you haven't yet seen the trailer for NBA 2K11 here it is for your viewing pleasure.
