NBA 2K18's The Neighborhood is the biggest change MyCareer has seen in years, and it's an excellent reason to dump last year's edition of the game and upgrade.
Rather than a new mode, The Neighborhood is a massive reorganization and rethinking of game modes already in NBA 2K. Instead of diving into menus, to switch between MyCareer, Pro-Am and street balling, players just walk to the location that houses that event. To buy clothes, players visit Footlocker or one of the game's clothing stores. Pro-Am, for example, has its own arena in The Neighborhood.
Like in GTA Online, players can see and interact with each other in The Neighborhood. This makes NBA 2K18's MyCareer much less isolating than in past games.
