NBA 2k is a series of basketball simulation games first released in 1999. The series was originally published by SEGA Sports, but is now published by 2K Sports. The game has an official license from the US’ National Basketball Association and simulates the real world of basketball with the same rules and famous faces; much like the FIFA video game. The game has earned praise for its first-class graphics and gameplay, customisation options, consistent high quality, attention to detail, and soundtrack. The most recent edition NBA 2K20 was released in 2019 for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game has sold over 80 million copies during its history and is suitable for all ages.
