NBA 2K16 already took my money. I pre-ordered this game a very long time ago.

So one would think a new trailer wouldn’t make me want to run around the office doing LeBron’s stomp celebration and order six more copies, but that’s exactly how I feel after watching this hype video:


A Chris Bosh photobomb! A Stephen Curry shimmy! The only thing missing from this game is the delusional optimism that comes with being a Philadelphia 76ers fan.

2K is about as ubiquitous with NBA culture as the real-life game itself. Pretty soon 2K will become an international conglomerate controlling the earth’s water supply, buying our most precious resource solely off the profits made from degenerate video gamers (like myself) who NEED to max out their MyPlayer to all 99s every single year.

But as long as 2K keeps making awesome games, we’ll keep playing.
