Whether it be through varied scanning techniques, differing levels of access to specific individuals, or their respective graphical engines, competing sports video games tend to win with representations of certain players but certainly not all of them. In the past with the basketball games NBA 2K had the clear edge according to fans but NBA Live had some respectable showings. Most recently when conducted between NBA 2K15 and NBA Live 15 it was the former that won for near 75% of the players that were examined.

Now it’s time to look at NBA 2K18 and NBA Live 18 which have both boasted improvements to visuals and face scanning in the last three years. Polls are open now for the first eight players. Two more sets will go up in the coming days with results analyzed late next week.
