2K Games has made it quite clear by now that it sees videogames not as artistic expressions, but purely as a means to extract as much money from its customers as possible. No purer example exists than the NBA 2K series. Thanks to microtransactions, gambling mechanics, and mobile free-to-play style economies, 2K’s basketball games have been vandalized and mutilated in the quest for extra dollars.
This has not gone unnoticed by the series’ fans, and it should come as no surprise that the latest in the series, NBA 2K19, has been thoroughly metabombed by a dejected populace. As is only right, of course!
