Sports games have featured face scanning tech in some way for nearly two generations. Since the advent of the webcam, game developers have sought to bring players actual likenesses into games. It makes sense for a sports fan; being able to play as you is appealing. You’d imagine though, with the new, higher fidelity cameras available, that it’d be a seamless, working process by now. You’d be wrong.
NBA2K15 is the latest game to feature facial scanning tech, allowing you to be in the game. Or at least, some sort of creepy, horribly disfigured version of you.
