On QB Style they still have Cam as Jason Campbell by default. If that isn't a microcosm of the laziness of Madden developers I don't know what is.
Cam Newton is a unique player and superstar, and they have him using the style of a player that was never a meaningful player in the league.
That's like having Mike Trout use Aubrey Huff's swing by default on MLB: The Show. It is incredibly lazy.

They use to have Jake Delhomme as a style, what other QB out there would they use that for? Im not defending them, I honestly think they and the customers would benefit from madden being released every 2-3 years with paid roster updates and little things on a current version so they can actually take time to improve the game compared to rushing it in 7-8 months
It is just an excuse. There are so many Footballers on FIFA and EA manages to do a pretty good job with that game. I mean at least try to get body types right. It took them 3 years to make Cam Newton look somewhat like Cam Newton rather than Donkey Kong. It is 2014 and EA sports makes a retarded amount of money. Hire some extra people and put out a game worth buying.
Im not an expert on video game design but these guys turn around a new game in less than 12 months. I highly doubt they have the time to work around 320 (if they do 10 players from each team) face scans then import them into the game. Who knows maybe players dont want to do it? I agree on the Cam thing but you gotta realize I doubt the turnover for game desiner on madden is less than 40% for developers and they have less than 12 months to make a new gamr
I don't know if it is just the hype of football but Madden is still terrible. I watched some videos and it looked alright but once you actually play it you will realize it is the same damn game all over again. (I played it on Xbox One) The new defense changes are pretty dumb and the devs should have used the time and resources to fix the parts of the game that have been broken for years. It is still super easy to driver down the field and dismantle even the best Ds in the game.
Animations are still broken and unrealistic looking. (There should be a lot of broken bones and torn acls) The ragdoll kind of thing is cool but not when players end up flopping around like strech armstrong.
Why make a big deal about giving Kaepernick his tattoos and then still have for than 50% of the players in the game be generic faceless models. NBA 2k has been modeling players with very realistic accuracy for years, tats included, why does EA ignore this every year.
If you can't play it at least go on twtich and watch some people play to get an idea. I'm sorry but EA is still bending their customers over.
Not to pick on you specifically but ive seen it mentioned a few times in this thread about the face scan and models.
The NFL has 32 teams and 52 players on the active roster. If they did even just 10 players (your big name players etc for each team) thats 320 people you scan and use in the game. And how long do you see the face without a helmet on? The NBA has 29 teams with 5 starters and sometimes the occasional 6th man. Thats 145 people if they do EVERY starter in the leauge. The amount of work is much less. Plus, in the nba you dont wear helmets and in the games, you are constantly seeing their face, why would they not take the time to model those guys? If that s the biggest complaint from some people I think madden has improved (I bought madden 25 two weeks ago and havent had it since '11 so im no expert but yeah)
