On Sept. 5, 2019, around 9:30 pm, I bought NBA 2K20 from my local GameStop. So far, the game has been mediocre. Currently, I have been unable to access online features, which are a very big part of NBA 2K20. Also,the game will crash due to too many players on the gaming server. Once the game crashes, you must wait anywhere between five minutes to two hours for the game to properly function again. NBA 2K20’s biggest game mode is My Career. In My Career, you can create your own NBA player and play against your friends. While playing this game mode, my game crashed due to too many players on the gaming server. Once I got back on the game, my data was completely gone.

Another problem with NBA 2K20 is its other game mode, My Team. In My Team, you can assemble a team with your favorite NBA players. Recently, the game mode has gotten a lot of backlash from Youtubers and parents who bought the game for their children.  This is because the game mode promotes gambling. Besides making your own team, you can buy packs which will give you a 50 percent chance of receiving the player that you wished for. This leads to children asking their parents for money to buy packs which then pours more money into the game. For example, I spent fifteen dollars on packs, and didn’t get the player I was hoping for. This is how NBA 2K20 makes its profit from My Team. For everyone that was planning to purchase NBA 2K20, I would hold off until the developers try to change the game’s ongoing problems.
