In recent years, video gaming has become too obsessed with graphics and almost started to ignore actual game play.

 

The actual game play of Madden hasn't improved in YEARS.

To your point, how much better can graphics really get? I too wish that game developers would devote more time, attention, and energy to improving the gameplay.

The players should actually come to your house and play in your backyard while you call the plays.  Best graphics ever.

Y'all are missing the point.  Look in the background.  That is Hangartner, still on his block.  They need to work on realism.

I wouldn't take anything from Madden. Last year they had the blue jerseys with black pants thing.

 

 

There weren't black pants in madden 13?

 

They should be there for 25 though.

Lol do you even play madden??

 

 

All new physics engine in 13, opposed to predetermined animations like in 12 and previous games. How is that not improving gameplay.

 

Precision passing and recievers reacting has never been better.

 

Running the ball was lacking in realism and effectivness in 13. That is being addressed in 25. For example, when running with the ball and you change direction quickly, your player just floats as opposed to actually cutting. That is being changed so your player actually makes the cut animation.

 

And they are improving on the physics and momentum of players in 25. Along with updated graphics. So yeeeeaaaaah.

Yeah, I play Madden. I've been playing it for years. Yes, there was a new physics engine in Madden 13. I still saw a lot of the same animations. I haven't seen much improvement in precision passing, and receivers still drop a lot of passes, unless you have the sliders way up. 

 

As for "improving on the physics and momentum of players in 25. Along with updated graphics." Just seems like a lot of vague marketing to me.

Well you can't argue about the improved running animations and realism.

 

The physics alone are what make it improved over any other football game made. Updated graphics and tuning to the mechanics over 13 are what make it marketable. Along with added players, uniforms.

 

Also can't argue about the read option game that actually works and will work. NCAA read option is going to be overpowered because in college the read option is like a staple. But in the NFL it is viable, and madden 13 was the first game to actually have it be viable.

 

I dunno. I have points, and all anyone has to say are vague statements like the gameplay isn't improved, or it is just like the game prior to it. Blanket statements like that just make me think you either really suck at the game, or you really don't play it that much.

Dear NFL,

Hand over your licensing rights to 2K Sports.

Your post pretty much said the same thing that others are saying - EA sells a ton of Madden games every year with basically nothing new other than some graphic tweaks and a roster update. They included the read option? Yay! Why would older NFL games have it? It was never really used in the modern NFL until very recently. It's not like it took them much work to incorporate it. They already use it for their NCAA game.

Also can't argue about the read option game that actually works and will work. NCAA read option is going to be overpowered because in college the read option is like a staple. But in the NFL it is viable, and madden 13 was the first game to actually have it be viable.

What other football games? EA has exclusive rights to produce NFL games. You mean the football games made years ago before that exclusivity?
