When it comes to good basketball games for PlayStation 4, there is a pretty good amount of variety. For that reason, we're ranking the best PS4 basketball games, with the help of your votes. 

One of the newest PlayStation 4 games about hoops is NBA 2K19. Released in late 2018, the newest installment in the NBA 2K series goes back to its roots in a game that is both in-depth and hard to master. If you never played NBA Playgrounds, it's a must-play basketball game for any PS4 owner. Other options include NBA 2K17 and NBA Live 18

Not every basketball game on this list is a PlayStation 4 basketball simulators - take 3on3 Freestyle for example, which came out in late 2016. However, all these basketball games are currently available on the PlayStation Store, regardless of release date. Vote up your favorite basketball game for PS4, or simply use this list as a recommendation guide if you're looking for more titles to play.
