Gold: College Hoops 2K Legacy Mode

When College Hoops started generating buzz across the hoops nation, it was not just because of the overall gameplay and feel of the franchise, it was because of how deep you could go in Legacy mode. The depth of the mode has yet to be topped by any other franchise. Not only was it deep, but the option of Open and Closed Legacy added another angle to the game. Being forced to develop your college credentials at a terrible school before working your way up to a school like North Carolina is a feeling that everyone should experience at least once. From recruiting to scheduling to the coaching carousel, Legacy mode has, and always will be one of the top modes in any sports video game.




Silver: MLB: The Show Franchise Mode

MLB: The Show has finally given consumers a baseball game worth playing. Not only is the gameplay superb, but the Franchise mode is, to say the least, amazing. With total control over your clubís farm system, you can build prospects up from the bottom to the top. Though the farm system is arguably the most fun and interactive part of Franchise mode, it does not stop there. With the ability to change prices and add features to a stadium, The Showís franchise wonít be going anywhere anytime soon.

Never played CH, but I am surprised Madden 05,06, or 07 didn't even make a dent.

College Hoops 2K8.

The game is four years old and it's still got the best offline franchise mode in any sports game.

Amazing presentation with Gumble and Kellog doing weekly highlight shows.

Then each season you had the great "Selection Sunday" special.

On the court, you had a great implementation of home court advantage with the momentum system, crowd chants and school bands.

Even the off-season system was great with playable recruit all-star games and the coaching carousel.

I'm sorry guys, but MLB TS doesn't even have the best franchise mode in it's own sport. And to say it's better than NBA 2k (even 9) is unconscionable.

College Hoops 2k8 has hands down the best dynasty EVER. I can't imagine what it would be with NBA 2k11 like gameplay. THe game would be amazing!! Here's to College Hoops 2k12, which would be the best sports title of all time.

When MLB the show makes the jump to 360 (which would really bring in some revenue, I might add), I'll definately buy it. I'm getting tired of buying the psp version and I certainly won't be buying a ps3 just for it.

You also have AA and AAA, and while not a full A squad (15 slots) that is not a big sway in the deeper argument.

Also create a stadium is a nice novelty, but more fantasy than depth of what core happenings go on in a real baseball franchise.

Happy to see CH 2K8 overcome the MLB The Show juggernaut. It's definitely the more deserving victor.

very critical and need an experience complainer to resolve it.

Every dark night is followed by a bright sunny day. So, patience and attention is required and things will be fruitful in near future.

The above thought is smart and doesnít require any further addition. Itís perfect thought from my side. I appreciate the concern which is been rose. The things need to be sorted out because it is about the individual but it can be with everyone. The initiative taken for the concern is very serious and need an attention of every one. This is the concern which exists in the society and needs to be eliminated from the society as soon as possible.There is nothing called a free lunch is this world. If anything needed to be resolved then initiated need a support to be sorted out.
