    TGT community member Rudy has penned an opinion piece on the gameplay of Madden NFL 16.

    I had quite a bit of fun with Madden 16 after getting it initially. I believe it is the best Madden on next gen consoles to date. But the game was full of bugs, particularly in franchise mode and I waited awhile to really get into my Dolphins franchise. In the mean time I’ve been playing NBA Live 16 and I popped Madden back into my PS4 and found myself bored. Madden is simply far too generic in gameplay.

    Continue on to read the entire column from Rudy and then share your thoughts. Is Madden too generic? What should the franchise do to help alleviate this issue? ...

    The Gaming Tailgate's cdj has written the TGT community review of NBA LIVE 16. In the third year since returning, how does the franchise stack up to the franchise benchmark of NBA LIVE 10? Read on to find out.

    If you enjoyed NBA Live 10 and were waiting for the franchise to return to that level, you will be very happy with NBA Live 16. It plays better and includes an Online Team Play mode, LIVE Pro-Am which consists of Summer Circuit (1-5 players versus CPU) and LIVE Run (human vs human teams).

    LIVE Pro-Am games are quick (as short as seven minutes), fun, and addicting - particularly with friends. Personalizing the mode is the NBA LIVE Companion App & GameFaceHD which allow users to scan their face easily (and high quality) into the game. (You must have a relatively new/recent phone or device that can support the app.)

    Legends and former standouts were once found in basketball video games as unlockables via cheat code or as worthwhile free agents worth considering in Dynasty Mode. In today's gaming landscape they have become a key part of Ultimate Team modes for numerous EA SPORTS games and are the rarest of the rare; the most prized possession possible in NBA Live Ultimate Team.

    Taking a look back at previous EA SPORTS basketball titles (NBA JAM and NBA JAM: On Fire Edition) shows that the company added many legends for NBA Live 14, but also that there were numerous that were not retained. Players may be dropped or not renewed for various reasons: cost, exclusivity with competitor NBA 2K (Ex: Michael Jordan), perceived lack of value for the player, et al. However with NBA Live 15 & NBA Live 16, many legends returned - along with some new ones. (Keep in mind that the NBA Live 16 legends will continue to be added & revealed throughout the year; 94 is not the final count.)

    Continue on to see the full list of legends included in recent EA SPORTS NBA titles and let us know what legends you would like to see added in the future. ...

    The latest trailer from NBA 2K16 focuses more on MyCareer and what you will be doing away from the Spike Lee-directed aspects of the mode.

    The video shows the created player playing high school basketball and making his college decision - hat and all - of attending the University of Kansas. The 'central hub' for your MyPlayer in this mode will be MyCourt, a completely customizable (in-home?) court. Users can invite friends in to their MyCourt before playing games.

    Off-days are important as users must spend time wisely to satisfy endorsement deals and establish connections with NBA players and personalities. Connections will allow your MyPlayer to earn badges and other rewards.

    Also introduced is Live Practice, where users can interact with coaches and teammates as they partake in drills and earn attribute boosts.

    2K Sports has released the first full-length trailer for the Spike Lee Joint 'Livin' Da Dream' in NBA 2K16. In the basketball title's MyCareer mode, the Spike Lee written & directed feature will set the stage for the created player from high school through finally landing in the NBA.
