    I can look forward to the beatdown from USC tonight after 9pm EST (I have to work a bit late and then pack a box or two prior to Xbox time).

    I might be able to play tonight if you don't have any league games. I won't have any NCAA games unless T3 advances early.

    I don't buy many games but am thinking about trying to pick up NBA2k11 used. Is it that good?

    It's possibly the best sports game I've ever played. If NCAA didn't have OD's I'd play nothing but NBA and be perfectly happy. I think Bond/BDS/Perry would agree the gameplay is much more fun than NCAA is.

    it's really fluid and really complete. It seems like there's nothing you can't do and you can learn a new move anytime you play, depending on who you use and everything.

    I've used a move on the sticks that is a total fail with someone like Marvin Williams, but the exact same move with someone like Brandon Roy and it's a power dunk plus 1....

    I agree. Maybe one of the best sports games I've ever played, and quite possibly one of the best games I've ever played period. The only game I can think off the top of my head that I've had more fun playing by myself is Metal Gear Solid on PS1.

    But then again, I really enjoy NBA basketball so it's a natural fit for me. I'm not sure that I would enjoy fifa, even though I hear the exact same things about that game. I just don't do soccer, or hockey...

    I think between FIFA, EA's NHL game, and NBA 2k11, we're entering new territory of just how fluid games can be. Like you said, Brian, I feel the exact same way about FIFA. A true enjoyment of the sport is the only thing that really tips someone's opinions on any of the 3 games; they are all phenomenal.

    Now if only we could get a football game that could rival NBA 2k11/FIFA. I love NCAA but if it weren't for online dynasties I wouldn't even buy this game every year. 2K11 proved just how much improvement could be made to a game in one year. NCAA hasn't made any significant upgrades since adding online dynasties a few years ago.
