      Chill it’s an arcade game. Just proves my point gamers cry when games like NBA street or NFL street aren’t released but people don’t have the time or patience or attention span for an arcade game this is exactly the reason companies aren’t jumping to make arcade sports games you wanna know what’s terrible that video and wasting 4 mins of my life just to get into game play.

      arcade games aren’t for everyone go ahead and play your wonky shooting fest NBA 2k17 and Ill be playing NBA playgrounds and Live 18
