I'm not one for sports games in general let alone basketball but I remember really having a blast with the NBA Jam games on Genesis and Game Gear back in the day as well as NBA In the Zone on PS1. That's about it for my basketball experience in gaming.

NBA Jam was, and still is the shit! That's pretty much the only sports game I've ever played and thoroughly enjoyed; I used to hog the arcade back in the day.

I wish I could say. I always hated the controls in basketball games, and wrote them off when I was a kid. The only thing relevant that I can think of is that the EA Sports PC games tend to have a modding community. I was previously in it for NHL 06. But current and old mods are available for a range of those releases, in case you wanted an older version with modern (or newer than launch) rosters, even updated teams/graphics and the like. For example there are mods for NBA Live 95.

I played a lot of different basketball games in my lifetime, but I would not recommend getting any PC basketball game especially the older PC games you can often find in places like Goodwill or flea market's (etc). Because it may not work properly or even install on a Windows 7/8/9 Vista OR Windows 10 Operating system like, at all.

However? I'd buy a retro tv console for all of them instead, I currently love all sports games expect for American football.

Basketball is better played with a controller and not a keyboard in my own opinion, but they are fun. The goal of all basketball games, is to block the other teams shot when on defense by jumping in font of them when defending your rim. and also try to make a basket when you are on offence. sounds vary easy but it's not.

First off I HIGHLY recommend going into any Basketball game "Shot Aim Options menu" and turn off Manual shot aim. because if you don't. It is extremely difficult to make a basket when on offence. and (in my own experience) playing lots of these game. I found the ball constantly bounces off the rim or goes into the crowd. therefore giving the ball away to my enemies. And when I first started out. playing those games and didn't know this. then I got my butt kicked by the other team in the process.

PC sports game are cheap, and console sports games are usually the same exact price. but PC ones often don't run. and are ok but not that fun in my opinion to be played with a keyboard, because I found myself pressing buttons that would take me back to my desktop photo, and then I needed to click back into my game. but if you got any kind of gamepad whether or not it's on PC or video game console it's a lot better and more fun in my opinion. :-\

Whether you add a basketball game to your collection for PC is entirely up to you. While I'm not as much a sports game enthusiast, I can say that I've had fun with mostly:

Hockey games - Some of my favorites include: Monster League Hockey, NHL '96, NHL Faceoff '97, NHL 98, NHL 2002, NHL '07, & NHL '13.

Baseball games - Some of my favorites included: Base Wars, RBI '93, RBI '94, Triple Play '98, & Triple Play 2001 (PS1)

Basket Ball games - Some of my favorites included: Arch Rivals, NBA Jam TE, & NBA Shootout '97

Football games - Some of those included: Tecmo Bowl & Madden NFL 2004

The only Golf game I could get into was: Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005. As much as I hated watching golf on TV, one thing I loved about playing this game was that it was easy to pick up & play. You could also create a golfer, customize (to some degree) golf swing animations, & I even found the commentary enjoyable. When the commentator was sure that your ball was going to land on the green & it ends up going into the rough, the color commentator would call him out on the bad call.

...

But my favorite of sport games (if you consider it sports) of all are ---> Wrestling games

I have a long list of favorites but here's a sampling:

WWF Superstars
WWF Wrestlefest
Wrestle War
Pro Wrestling (NES)
Tecmo World Wrestling
WWF Royal Rumble
WWF Raw
WWF Smackdown 2: Know Your Role
WWE Smackdown: Shut Your Mouth
WWE Smackdown: Here Comes the Pain
WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2006
WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2007
WWE '12
WWE 2K14
