Anyone play these games? I'm sort of a wrestling fan, but not really into any sort of current wrestling.

For me I've enjoyed a few of the showcases, but I think they've gone in the right direction this year with the universe mode and the promos. I mean majority of wrestling fans now want to book rather than play

    WWE 2k16 was free on games for gold last month, did you not try it?

    I did and didn't like it 1 bit!

    I had the NXT edition pre-ordered but duly cancelled it when I found out there was no showcase mode. That was the biggest draw for me.

    Don't think I've ever played a single showcase mode lol

    Universe mode is the only mode I play

    Yeah that's what made me check out 2k17

    The games aren't as good as the used to be, for some reason it seems like a chore to do a move.

    I loved the attitude era and wrstlemania showcases. More because of the actual videos taking me back.

    I love the concept of the universe mode (I liked gm mode) but it just doesn't play well. Hopefully they've made it better to create shows. If you have heard of Total extrem wrestling that's what i want it to be like, a visual version of that.

    The one thing i will say what annoyed me was the lack of legends on 2k17. 2K16 was perfect as you had a legit attitude era roster. HHH, Austin, The Rock, Masked Kane, ABA Undertaker, Bret Hart, Nation of domination, Hart Foundation, HBK, Big show with hair, 3 faces of foley, DX, Ken Shamrock, Rikishi etc

    Although it is nice to actually have almost the full main roster now.

    I haven't seen the roster.

    I don't mind if they don't have those versions as long as the can be created properly. But the creation suite is too slow and not as good. I'd like the PC version but it means buying a new PC.

    I started watching around 93 and stopped in 01 but sort of kept up to date with what was going off still over the years.

    What games have you'd previously? It's got me thinking I've had

    - a game boy game (only had about 5 wrestlers)
    - War zone
    - WWF attitude
    - Smackdown know your role
    - Smackdown just bring it
    - Smackdown here comes the pain
    - Svr either 06/07/08 can't remember which
    - Wwe12
    - Wwe13
    - 2k14

    I can safely say the first 3 smackdowns were the most fun to play

    I've had them all since shut your mouth. My first one was 07 or 08 tho. I just bought the rest from PS2 on the cheap and played them all because i liked the rosters.

    I like the creation suites. 2K16 was MILES better than 2k15 tho. 2k15 was easily one of the most limited WWE games since 07.

    Universe mode should be similar to gm mode where you are up against other companies.

    But can't see that happening.

    One of those games where you get out as much as you put in and want to imo, if that even makes sense?

    Obviously you gotta be a wrestling fan first and foremost but for me the main reason the game is so fun is because you can be extremely creative with what you do. A lot of the stuff is imagination at the end of the day ahaha.

    As a straight up fighting game it's not that great.

    Fun game to play with friends locally.

    But they lost alot of the Legends which is all I care about.

    I don't want to have to play a ton to unlock players

    That's it, if you want a fighting game, go ufc or boxing, but the creators of WWE games don't realise people are now more interested in the booking side of things and creating their own shows
