What I took Next-gen golf to mean at first: The players travel around the course using underground speed-tubes, the clubs are rocket-powered because the holes are 50 miles apart and they use remote-controllable cyber-balls.

I still play Tiger Woods 2005 because it's the gold standard to me. 2K golf isn't great, and EA hasn't made a good golf game in a decade. Hope they can make this game fun again.

Tiger 05, Madden 05, NBA LIve 05 and MVP 05 were all the best of their series. Along with NFL 2k5, 2004/2005 was a great year to be a sports gamer.

Hopefully it's better the shitshow that is PGA tour 2k21. I mean it's golf so there's not much to it, but damn is it a bare bones entry. I expect more from 2k.

They locked in the Masters course Augusta for this year, so I guess I am getting the EA game.

Just another next-gen game without trailer!
Honestly, I'd rather them wait to show the game off with even a 3 second gameplay montage teaser.

I hate these fucking empty reveals. Ragnarok logo reveal was like getting a sniff of Kate Upton's undies. Gives you an instant boner that just makes you wanna fucking rage.
