Ok guys, I am not really a gamer but there's one game that I play that I really enjoy a lot and it's pretty much the only game that I play that I really want to share with you guys because the game needs a lot more players and it's a fun and easy game that anyone and any age can easily enjoy, it's called "FreeStyle Street Basketball", short "FreeStyle" and "FSSB", and I've been playing the game since late 2007.

If you don't wanna hear me anymore and just wanna go to the game's website and check it out right now CLICK HERE: http://gamekiss.com/

I'm a huge sports fan and one day I'm bored and decided to watch TV and I saw this game from a DeVry University commericial, so I googled it and checked it out. I just simply clicked with the game.

Basically you just create your own character and pick a position(Guard, Forward, or Center) and you just play 3 on 3, 2 on 2, or 1 on 1 basketball with REAL people around the world and you control only one character when you play(you can create more characters but only one at a time).

Here's a quick youtube music video of FreeStyle's gameplay: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TKiHyPbv_Yg&fmt=18

Article from KissGamer.com, a FreeStyle fan site:

"Freestyle is a PC game that features cel-shaded characters with simple-looking environments. This means you won't have to have a high-end
machine to actually run the game; a great thing for many PC gamers. The publisher, GameKiss, is pushing this into more of a casual game
that will be free to play on their website, which just takes a simple and quick download to start playing. The fact that this is a casual game
makes it naturally have easy controls that are straightforward. The four arrow keys move your avatar while W, A, S, and D are used for
various things such as passing, and shooting. It couldn't get anymore simple than this!

Actually, though the controls are fairly basic in Freestyle, it doesn't mean the game doesn't have its fair share of competition. Getting into the
correct position on the court and moving around a lot may sound easy, but with your opponents defending you, you'll think twice.

The game seems a bit strange, a basketball RPG? Though there are not many actually role-playing aspects in Freestyle, there is still the fact
that you can customize your character and stand out from the crowd. This may be one of the biggest selling points in this game! You get to
pick from an assortment of skin tones, hairstyles, and clothing. But that's not all, the game has things such as tattoos, hats, accessories,
pants, shirts and a lot more! Even better, these items are not only for looks; They increase your stat attributes depending on what you buy.
The stats range from things such as your running ability and how well you can dunk. There are over a dozen!

Building your character is more than simply buying a few outfits and hitting the b-ball courts. The game has level restrictions-- Meaning you
can't just simply buy the best clothing and own the court. And of course, the higher the level requirement, the more it costs.

Just like a traditional role-playing game, you can expect that you will be earning experience points and levels for your character. At first, you
will level quickly but after a while, it may just get a bit tedious. The game offers match-making services so that you can play others that are
close to your level. But if you decide to be a big man (or woman!), you can take on opponents that are well over your experience level. The
benefits? A good load of exp and skill points if you manage to get that hard win."

This game is also a great place to meet a lot of cool people, mostly people who love sports and just wanna chill. But there are a lot of immature people and idiots you gotta watch out for, but they're pretty much in any community.

I hope you guys check this game out and hopefully try it out.
