NBA 2K17 MyCareer
The NBA 2K17 MyCareer mode features many similarities to the other mycareer modes in 2k games past, but it really tries to distinguish itself by adding more social interaction in the game. For instance this year's story mode seems to continue past one season, with NBA players constantly texting you, endorsement deals being made and to add to that an actual girlfriend. In 2K16, the story was done by Spike Lee, and featured the tragic death of your close friend. Now that is all fine and dandy, but the story wasn't well received by public. This year's story seems more believable in being that it doesn't focus too much on the off court trials, but the on court ones. For instance, you're paired up with 2 buddies, Justice Young and Denver Levins. Justice is developing just as quick as you and is considered your side kick. Denver is not really a good player, but you and your teammates love to have him around the locker room.
Now the gameplay in NBA 2K17 MyCareer is pretty much a carbon copy of 2K16's version of mycareer except with two additional twist. First, you have the opportunity to actually control another player (Justice Young) when you two have the "orange juice" connection going. Some people find the feature interesting since you can literally tell Justice whether to shoot, pass, drive, or jump completely take full control over him. Secondly is the doing work meter. So you start off with around 80 or so attribute upgrades. To unlock more attribute upgrades, you must feel up the doin work meter. Once that meter is full it adds to another meter that will eventually unlock another attribute upgrade for you. All in all the mycareer is a grind that some users might find rewards them for their time put in.
