Ea sports rant
Ok so my favorite player in nfl history is dan marino. In madden 13 they added nfl legends after years of them being missing from madden, they didnt add marino for whatever reason. But what was cool is they added elway and Montana and other greats. Made them custom throwing motions and everything. And they weren't that bad. They actually kinda resembled themselves.
So I created him, did his gameface and gave him the tony romo throwing motion since it is the closest they had. I played the game for a few hours and got bored and never played it again. All that money for just a few hours of gameplay.
So yesterday I found out that they added marino to madden 25. I was pretty excited. Because they'd finally get his thorwing motion in the game and facemask that he wore. Which has never been in the game. Finally.
So I bought season ticket to try it out. First thing I did was start a career with marino. When I went to edit him they didn't have his facemask. But that was okay cause they had something close to it. I was bummed. But I was pretty excited that they probably gave him a custom throwing motion. Nope. To my surprise the had tony romo's.
So what they did was exactly what I did in 13 just gave him a custom game face.
If you're going to add legends at least make them play like they did in real life. It's not hard. All pro football 2k8 did it perfectly. Specially someone that had a arm and throwing motion like marino. Fastest arm of all time.
Regardless I fired up preseason and started to play a game. Had to skip all that garbage cut scene crap. And threw my first pass and everything looked exactly like 13. There was no change. As soon as I saw that I cut the Xbox off. Won't touch it again.
Bottom line is they are lazy as ****.
It's bad when a game made in 2005 simulates the sport of football 100xs better than a game made in 2013. Even madden 2004 plays smoother and and has way better animations than any game this gen. So sick of being forced to buy these terrible games.
