I still play 2k11. I don't like to buy sports games each year unless they are drastically different because you can always get someone to update the rosters.
That said, I think I'll go pick up 2k13 in a couple days. Glad to hear it is awesome. Seeing how much the 2k series has improved the last 5 years makes me sad when I look at Madden and NCAA and see how little it has really improved.
I can't wait to leave work and pick this up. This will be the first time I get it on release day (pre-ordered yesterday to get the bonus stuff).
I used to pick it up after it had been out for awhile. I would see a pro game in person and get excited. Then the Jordan stuff pulled me in quick and I bought the last two versions after it had been out a week.
Now I'm re-energized about the Hornets and can't wait to start an Association with them. After the Hornets got the first pick, I picked up some good draft classes and went about building the Hornets with Davis and Rivers.
However, my first game will be Dream Team vs this past Olympic team. Jordan gonna go to work on these fools!
