NBA 2K 20 Sells Despite Controversies, Criticism and Bad Reviews

NBA 2K 20 ‘s success is symptomatic of a staunchly-devoted fan base and a constant appetite for the franchise, even though year-on-year improvements lack depth and scope.

The fruit of countless bugs and issues plaguing the launch version of the game, a # fix2k 20 hashtag also did the rounds last week,securingthe coveted trending label on Twitter in the process.

We’d feign surprise at how NBA 2K 20 has managed to top the EMEAA charts while a dumpster fire blazes away backstage, but in reality, it is more of the same.
