The character of the player in MyCareer is constantly scrolling on a fake Twitter feed (whose authentic tone, also stands out above NBA 2K22 MT other series' attempts) and will come across people voicing their opinions in a dispute just as they'll see get-off my-lawn-grandpas like Perkins who scold them for not talking and being thankful. You're assigned a personal manager along with your choice of two different agencies that represent you. Both of them helped make my "Social Samurai" performance as I pleaded for more playing time sound like just-business sense.

2K Sports gets away with the microtransaction hustling and the game's in-game advertisement of MyCareer -- barely -- because it's attached to an intense role-playing experience and features lifestyle elements. The game's producer has stuck its fingers into the cookie jars of players every year since 2014, yet those players have still come back.

I doubt they would be if the one-player career hit story is as safe and stale like Madden NFL 22's The Face of the Franchise. I'm sure I'd never accept being expected to conduct myself courteously and with respect throughout the commercial, transactional environment of MyCareer's main city.

And it was very cathartic just prior to that crucial match against the Nets in which I vented my frustration with interviewer Candace Green and see my fan base grow, in number and also my personal "brand" shoot up over virtually every measure. When playing other sports video games the me-first-vituperation will usually get the viewer a passive-aggressive message that players shouldn't behave in that manner.

I've come across that; video games for sports are a major source of publicity for the leagues that license them, and their developers often want to present them and their athletes in the best image. Fortunately, to me that the NBA along with 2K Sports have a trusting enough relationship that the normal tensions and disputes that arise in professional sports can be dealt with and resolved authentically. This leads to a professional career in which I feel involved in the game and not just a number that is being hustled.
