    I used to get suckered into buying every year and always got bored with it after 3 weeks and traded it in. I was thinking about trying it again. Has it gotten any better or is it still the same old game with updated rosters?

    Oh and the vision cone was the worst thing ever. Hope they got rid of it.

    I may see if Red Box has it. I know they did a few months ago.

    The problem with sports games is they can't really change them because the sport doesn't change.

    They got rid of the vision cone the next year. It's that same game it's been since 89

    I was over at my buddys place the other weekend ( we're both in our 40's and he has a 23 year old son) playing the new COD and some kid started talking shit at my buddy telling him to just stop playing and take the game back to the store and exchange it for something else. His kid and I were in tears :jj:

    Yeah but 2k lost the NFL license at one point and even though the game play was better it sucked playing with fictional teams and players. I don't know if that's still the case.

    I prefer EA although their NHL 2015 kind of sucked shit. 2k is actually rumored to be teaming up with Microsoft to put out an NFL title.

    2016 was much better. It's like they put out 15 as an afterthought. They took 14, made it look better but took out half the features. I think the problem is, it's a niche game and probably doesn't sell many copies compared to the shooters and more popular sports so they probably don't sink a lot of money into it. I enjoy it though. Especially the online league.

    Dude, hockey games are fun as shit, especially head to head against someone. I'll bet $ that the Bruins are your squad of choice.
