Anyone else play the new Madden? I got the middle priced copy to play three days early (and also did the 10 hour trial a week early). I honestly thought the gameplay on field was amazing and then the game was hit with a day 1 update that for whatever reason makes the on field game play seem slower.

Tons of glitches and hiccups and some crashing out of the box. The update DID fix most of that so far.

I love Franchise mode and it is literally the same mode for like the 3rd straight year with nothing more than different colors and sounds on its menu screens.

Fans and professional reviewers are tired of it. Giving this game a 6-7 is gonna get some folks fired at EA and hopefully lead to some changes. There is also a big push on Twitter for the NFL to opt out of the exclusivity deal with EA.

Wonder if the PS5/XBOX Series X versions will be better?
 
Downloading the new Avengers game now for the XB1X. Didn’t play the Beta but so far the early reviews seem to be pretty positive.

I am digging how all these new games you buy on current gen are upgraded for free on next gen when they release those systems. I wanna say that last time it wasn’t like that for most games but I might be wrong.
 
I am boycotting the new Madden.

Purchased it on launch day every year for what? 20 or 30 years?

I'm finally fed up with EA and their laziness. Literally re-skinned with roster updates year after year. For 60 bucks? No thanks.

A lot of people are. Apparently EA is planning on doing three in season updates to Franchise Mode because of the backlash.

I haven't played Madden seriously for years. Basically the year they implemented the vision cone was the last year I played.

I don't like the franchise mode at all now. Too complicated.

As far as game play... it's the same but I'm not sure how much you can really tweak it tbh. I'm not a fan of having a bunch of extra features that over complicate the game. That was kind of the end of NBA video gaming for me. I think my issue isn't that the game isn't evolving as it was just more fun when I was in the military and playing a bunch of people talking smack instead the computer by myself in the living room.

I have never thought Madden was fun. I wish they would make a new NFL Blitz

There is a mode in this madden aimed at that crowd. Haven’t tried it. But supposedly it’s pretty good.

It’s not a bad game, on field play is about the best it’s been. They just got lazy with making of look fresh. But it’s the end of this console generation, hopefully (from what I’ve read it’s true for Madden and NBA 2k) the next gen releases show year one promise the way it did this generation.
 
The one thing I really miss is being able to play anyone at any position. I used to fuck people up with Tim Brown at FB. Plus there was a glitch play with Jerry Porter that was indefensible. Just give me a current roster, up to date graphics, and let me control my own damn depth chart and I’m fine.

Can't change their position?

Every martyr is a lie.

Thinking about it, Madden might be super fun if it was VR...
 
Who needs improvement at your craft?

Just be an "activist" and that Madden grade shoots up.

I don't blame 2020. Years are inanimate. I blame idiots.
