Trying to put a spin on games to make them more creative or innovative, or just to try and make them appealing to a wider audience doesn't always work, if at all. There may be some games that have good execution of a weird concept but those are pretty rare.
Here, SB Nation compares two weird basketball video games - NBA Jam and NBA Street - which try to offer some form of variety or weirdness to the ordinary mechanics of the sport but do it pretty well.
NBA Jam is a legendary franchise that defined multiple generations of basketball video games. NBA Street was a series with extremely low expectations that turned out to be pretty damn great.
Which one do you think is best?
