Default NBA 2K7 or NBA LIVE

I know its early but I will be getting one of the two and I need some input. From what I have read and seen they seem to be pretty equal right now.. at least in my mind. I have always been a 2K guy but if Live is better I will get it. Any and all information/opinions are needed and welcome.

Gameplay and graphics go to 2K7. I've never been a Live fan, I dont think basketball is one of EA's strengths.

2K is overall a better game but IMO Live has a more fluid gameplay. I think that is due more too its arcade style. I would go for 2K

Since my favorite basketball game all time is NBA Jam I have to go with live. The thing about basketball games is I only play them with friends over, they are boring single player cause the Computer player just holds the ball for 23 seconds than shoots it.

2k7, Live is too complicated. I don't have the patience to master the controls. I like the complexity of Madden, but when I'm playing a bball vid game, I wanna be able to just pick up the controller and have fun. Football is more of a thinking man's game, so I can understand and appreciate the complexity of Madden. Bball is a simple game, no need to make the video game so damn complicated.

It takes a couple of games to really get down. The controls are a lot more intricate than the 2K series. You can pick up the controller in 2k and work like 3 buttons and have a good time. For live, you gotta know how to use all 8 buttons and when to use em. Its nice when you spend time learning it, but I just wanna play a simple bball game. I got much more enjoyment out of the 2k series, it was simpler and funner to me. Just work the right analog stick and pass or shoot. Simple and still fun.

THats funny because the controls are way more complicated in the 2k series. Knowing how to do crossovers and stuff took a while for me to figure out with last years. Live is way more cut and dry IMO

I think if anything, 2k is more complicated than live

Live is right stick to do moves, B to shoot, A to pass, R turbo

2k has 3 buttons to drop step, 2 buttons to alley-oop, and the most ******** move sheme ever, and shot stick
