10 Worst Basketball Video Games Ever Made

Speaking of fanservice, how about a game that lets you pit your favorite rappers against each other in streetball? RapJam Volume 1 (SNES, 1995) did exactly that, but Motown Games likely ended up spending most of their budget to get LL Cool J, Warren G, Queen Latifah (seriously) on board, because the rest of the game was hot garbage.

The urban courts were butt-ugly, character models only vaguely resembled their real-life counterparts and there was absolutely no respect for the game of basketball – all makes counted for 2 points despite there being a 3-point line and you could just hop around holding the ball without a single travel called.
