This is comical. Not really, but EA is truly clueless.

I want a weekly wrap up show so bad to make franchise more immersive. I'm not saying it would be easy, but, in essence, it's sort of movie quality, or it's part cut scene, part simulation football cut scene creation. So, they would have to be able to generate stuff in game. I admit, I don't know how easy or hard that would be. But, to have them work on this for 4 years and 'need frostbite' for it, and say things like, 'no being cheap'. Lol. Give me a weekly show! That would constantly give more bang for the buck for franchise players. And, if done well enough, maybe it would bring in the people that are actually going to enjoy this pointless mode. Lol.

Yeah, I just don't get this at all. Sports games aren't supposed to have campaigns, nor do they need it. It's a sport. U like the sport, u buy the game. This story will be over very quickly, I imagine. And, how much did it cost ea? When, they could've put that money into making CFM more interactive, making animations better, etc.

And, don't get me wrong, we haven't seen the true gameplay, yet. So, maybe they also added those things. But, wow, this just seems like a huge waste of money and time on their end. I'm really not sure how many casuals are suddenly going to play madden because now it has a story mode. So, I don't want to hear that arg. I think madden's upper management has serious issues with understanding what should go into a good football game. Lol. But, I see that in my job as well. So, que sera sera.

This just sounds like a giant waste of time. I would've rather had them put in more dialogue for commentary, a weekly wrap up show, pre game show, better half time show. Anything. It just seems like a waste. So long as the actual game is improved I won't mind. They have the same thing in MLB the Show and NBA 2k. So I think Madden was just following suit.

I'm not going to knock it until I've tried it, it's definitely something different and I give EA credit for trying a story mode. I can see why the main character would not be customizable for the sake of the story. I'll be playing this as one of the first things I do when M18 comes out.

Re: Madden NFL 18 Video - Longshot

I'll try it out but like others here I really think that the 4 years and the $$ spent could have been better used.

I'm just happy seeing real college teams in a EA game. Gives me a little hope of a future return of a Ncaa game..
