The Evolution of Basketball Video Games

NBA Shootout (1996)

NBA Shootout was Sony's debut foray into the world of basketball video games and featured fully polygonal player models created by motion capture. And, sadly, that's about where this titles significance ends. NBA Shootout made a run of it for eight years, ending the series in 2004 and not doing much of note except for making that move to mo-cap. Basically, the series can be summed up by Sam Cassell's kind of awkward and not at all dramatic layup photo on the cover of the box.
