Free Basketball Games to play on your PC that are appropriate for Kids and for players of all ages

Free Basketball Games to play on your PC that are appropriate for Kids and for players of all ages

Of all the sports games you can find on PC, Basketball games I’ve always found to be the most exciting and nothing beats the feeling of getting that ball through the hoop in all but impossible shots. Basketball games have had a long history and a tradition of emphasizing the fun aspect instead of focusing on the realism. I think we can all remember NBA Jam, the game that took basketball and gave it superpowers.

Sadly, NBA Jam isn’t part of this list, but we’ll still tell you about some of the best free basketball games you can play on PC. Furthermore, they’re basketball games for kids and appropriate for players of all ages!

Freestyle 2: Street Basketball

I mentioned NBA Jam fist because of this first game we’ll talk about. Freestyle 2: Street Basketball is a free downloadable basketball game with hundreds of unlockables. You can customize not only how insane your character looks, with hats, shoes and even hairdos, but you can also give him abilities and skills in the movement, shooting or even dribbling categories. By the time you’re done with them, your team will be exactly how you want them to be, your customized squad. In addition to that, you’ll have daily challenges, tournaments and other modes to compete with the highly adaptive AI that will try everything in its power to stop you from advancing. There’s even a set of unlockable power cards to boost your characters’ abilities.

FreeStyle Street Basketball

It wouldn’t be fair to mention Freestyle 2 without mentioning the original Freestyle Street Basketball, which has the honour of being one of the very few sports-themed MMORPGs in the world. Join hundreds of players around the world, competing and playing together, using each game to earn experience and increase your powers and abilities, slowly becoming almost superhuman basketball players. And much like its single-player focused sequel, you’ll be able to customize your players as much as you want. It’s been reported that the game suffers from slow loading times, but for a free-to-play game, that really shouldn’t stop you from at least giving it a shot and experiencing this Basketball RPG with hundreds of players around the world.

NBA Live

NBA Live 2003 is one of the big hitters. Yes, it’s over a decade old, but it’s still widely available and a popular download. The reason behind it is how fun the game is, how tight the controls are and how addictive it is. NBA Live 2003 did something interesting with the way you play, it game you control over each of the players’ hands, giving you full reign to perform dribbles and steals and passes and of course, the trickiest shots you can conceive.

Backyard Basketball

Backyard Basketball brings me back to NBA Jam again, in that it takes basketball for an interesting spin. In BB you’ll play with famous athletes, with people like Shaq but in a super-deformed appearance. Tiny bodies with wobbly heads, you’ll laugh as you play with these cartoonish characters for hundreds of hours.
