The Evolution of Basketball Video Games

Fast Break (1988)

The most notable innovation in Accolade's Fast Break from 1988 was the inclusion of customizable plays. Now, are we talking about the kind of play design that would make College Hoops 2K8 so much fun to mess around with? No, but it's still a cool idea. The presentation is hip enough to feature a classic Nike Force sneaker on the credits screen. No real NBA players here, but you do get stars like Hakeem-Muhammed and the crowd is apparently composed entirely of undead souls waiting to cross the River Styx.
