Let me know when I can play as our 01 team. It'd be like having a cheat code.
It’s the only game I’ve played since it came out. I must have done a Dynasty with at least 90% of the P5 schools.I still play NCAA 14...NCAA way better than Madden will ever be...Madden's drafting is crap....the NFL Head Coach games had way better drafting and offseason stuff
Competition breeds efficiency and makes them more responsive to customers. Look at ESPN. They suck. They know they suck. They don't care. Because they don't have to.True story:
So back in like 2002 or so, EA based in Playa Vista, CA was making rounds to colleges to test Madden & give their assessment. So they came to Long Beach St, and myself & a couple of homies were chosen to test out a Madden concept.
I gave them my opinion which was Madden 93 was better. Lol. So I told them ppl create themselves in video games so they can live vicariously; it needs to feel real. So I mentioned, ‘how is it when it’s a game at 4:30p on the EC, with those games usually ending at 7:45p in the month of October, is the sun is still out? Or if I’m playing in the rain, make a hard tackle while sliding, how is grass not in my helmet?’
I told them little details like that go a long ways. Jerseys getting dirty, players speed reducing in certain elements, going from sunlight to dusk, to night, etc. Brodies, on my mama, they wrote down every chit I told them, thanked me & my homies for our honest assessment, and viola, Madden 04 had those features. Lol. Now, could others have said the same thing? Possibly, but at least they were listening & implementing.
Problem w EA is that, like Miami, once they got exclusive sports gaming rights, AND GUARANTEED $, they got lazy. No competition; guaranteed $= resting on your laurels.
Ppl play Madden b/c there’s no comp, same w Live prior to 2K and MVP baseball prior to MLB The Show revamping itself. Once 2K comes out w their football game next yr, I doubt we see Madden in the same light. They are stagnant, and not listening to the ppl. This is a piss poor version of NBA 2K storylines.
