    Dota auto chess is actually pretty fun. I have no knowledge at all about Dota but it is still very accessible. Also, it's single player so you don't have to worry about bad teammates / teammates yelling at you

    There would be something extremely meta about a DotA2 custom game becoming more popular than the game it's built in.

    For someone who hasn't played a basketball game since NBA Live '96 on the snes (or maybe NBA '99 on PSX), is NBA2k19 worth getting?

    edit: for Switch. I hear NBA2k18 is **** (though super cheap).

    For me playing games is similar to read a book. A big part of the enjoyment I get is being able to take my time, take it all in etc. Generally I find online games do not often allow for this because of their hectic and frenetic nature. For adversarial games anyway, probably different for MMORPGs etc. but I have never got into those somehow.

    I find I go one of two ways.

    With some games, I want to play a pure online game - such as CS:GO or LoL - where the sole goal is to beat other humans.

    Alternatively, I play a game purely for the storyline and character development - not only do I not want to deal with other online players; I barely care about the gameplay at all, and will often YouTube how to do things just so I can progress to the next stage of the story.

    The last 2K I played was 2K16 and I thought it was pretty decent. I imagine you can't really go wrong with a newer 2K if you're paying almost nothing for it, as long as the microtransactions don't bother you. I'd go for 17 or 18 unless rosters updates are super important for you.

    I reckon dcye or duffer would have better feedback.

    Nah I don't really play sports games anymore. Last one I played was 2K17, which I got in Humble Monthly. I only played 11hrs of which 95% would have been in GM mode.

    yea fair. desire to give publishers the spray they deserve might have gotten in the way there.

    Especially those made by 2K

    **** those guys

    I mean, I don't really care as long as it's not overbearing and they're only locking superficial crap behind the microtransactions. A bad example is AC: Unity that had a ridiculous amount of pop-ups asking you to buy credits or whatever. As long as that's not the case, I'm ok with it. In the US at least, the price of buying a new game has not increased in something like 15 years so I'm very ok with it as long as its handled with tact.

    That said, as I haven't played any sports games lately aside from Ashes Cricket so I don't know how bad they've gotten.

    I understand that some of the more recent 2K games are basically unplayable without them these days, according to Jim Sterling anyway.

    MyPlayer is basically unplayable without buying VC, unless you have an insane amount of free time. Which is probably part of the reason I stopped playing them, because that was the main reason I got into the 2K games.

    I played 2k19 a lot and tried very hard to like it. Don't get it.

    Microtransactions aren't the only thing. I could write an essay about how ****ed up literally everything in the game is. And after everything else, I had to throw my hands up and laugh when I noticed they made the whole timeout cutscene and the first five seconds unskippable just so they could force a Gatorade ad on you, and then scripted a minimum amount of timeouts called every game.

    Don't go anywhere near that trash.

    It's not really the obnoxious in game ads urging you to splurge real money that bother me. It's when this crap starts affecting in game progression that it really becomes annoying. Career mode was completely ****ed in the arse by this in 2k,apparently.
