Default 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.

Oh yeah, I forgot they started doing that. I pre-ordered at GameStop so I could do the $10 upgrade to XB1.

Now I feel like I'm missing out lol

i went through amazon.com so i could get the nfl sunday ticket package.

i honestly don't think i'm going to have any time to play madden, so i'll probably do what i never do, and trade the game in at gamestop for credit towards the 360 version of BF4 for my son.

what do they give for brand new games? like $30 or so maybe?

Madden 13 was much much better than NFL 2k5. Really no comparison.

i think the argument is that WHEN the 2K franchise was in full effect, that they had the upper hand on madden.

obviously, with 6-8 years of improvements, it's hard to compare the franchises now.

fwiw, i tend to agree overall......2K losing the exclusive license (actually, exclusive licenses in general) was a bad thing. competition is always better, IMO.

2k5 still to this day plays better football. The only thing madden is better in is in graphics. And yet they still aren't that good now. Have you seen the running animations in madden absolutely terrible. Actually every animation they have is pretty terrible. QB drop back animations, QB thorwing animations. Oline animations. It's all bad.

I'm not a 2k homer either because madden 2005 was great. Too. At the time I played madden 05 more than 2k5. But back then I was young and didnt know much about football.

Regardless madden 25 next gen really looks like it might be pretty good. One of my biggest things is running animations. That should be the start of every football game. Next gen madden looks to have done that well. Then go to oline and Dline. Then to wide receivers and DB interactions. Needs to be a real fight for the ball. Then, get the quarterback animations right.

Once the gameplay is good. Then add fluff. Like weekly rap up show. And that stuff.

I hope and pray madden try's to simulate that sport next gen. Instead of focusing of arcade gameplay and tournament style gameplay.

No one is forcing you to. I don't put up with it.

I am still using updated rosters from NCAA 2009 or 2010 (can't even remember now!) and it doesn't bother me at all. That is really the MAJOR change with each edition...the rosters being updated and then uniforms/stadiums.

I am going to go shell out $60 for a duplicate of what I bought the year before and everyone else shouldn't either. Problem is, people are addicted to "having the new copy" and contribute to the problems they end up bitching about the most!
