'NBA 2K16' Gives Us Insane Levels of Detail and Ugly Faces

We’ve got a preview for the upcoming NBA 2K16, and while I realize the gamemakers are trying to show all the attention to detail they’ve put in, the trailer is light on action, and pretty heavy on weird little throwaways like mouthguards (:20), photobombs (2:13), and lots and lots of star players making ugly faces in celebration (2:00) and ugly faces in pain (1:54).

It’s pretty much just a hype video, but it’s hard not to like the level of detail we’re seeing here, so long as the gameplay can hold its own.

One of the issues with NBA 2K is that it’s easily the most well-known NBA game out there, so they don’t feel the heat from competition. And while clips like this might sell copies of the game, it’s the gameplay that will keep people coming back for more.
