Re: Looking back at All-Pro Football 2K8

This game with Finns editor and online leagues saved football for me this entire generation.

Although the game has a shallow franchise and some flaws, its still by far the best football game this generation from a gameplay perspective.

Re: Looking back at All-Pro Football 2K8

Salutes to you jyoung. Great write up and a very honest look at a game that is quite polarizing still after 6-7 years. New life was been put back into this game with the editing options discovered a few years back and with the continued roster updates such as yours as well as the RateSports. Even though there are newer and more "prettier" games visibly, they're only prettier during cut scenes and replays because once you snap the ball, APF 2K8 fades em all.

Although far from perfect, the things they did right, they did exceptional IMO. A sign of a company and designers that got "it" almost a decade ago and although other companies still making football games tell you they have "it" in the game, it's a testament to this game that that game is still being compared to APF 2K8.

Wow. Amazing write-up, just brilliant in-depth, balanced analysis on APF both gameplay-wise and real-world-wise.

Here is a better plan:

1. Go to Twitter. Make an account. Then once a day, send a message to @2K, @2KSports, and @Ronnie2K, and ask for a new 2K Football game. They read every last one of the messages they get, I know this because I know Ronnie personally and we've spoken about this on 2 occasions. On one occasion, he said he wondered why if people want the game so badly they're not demanding it more? I told him they do want it, they just don't contact 2K for some reason...

2. Go to 2KSports' YouTube channel. Find their most recent videos and ask for a NEW 2K Football game. Do it daily. Again, they read every message.

3. Go to the All-Pro Football videos at the 2KSports YouTube channel and post there, too. Do it daily.

....

I'm already doing what I wrote above. I want a real football game done right, not this crap Tiburon is giving us, and I'm dead serious about it. I wish more people were.

Quit being so passive and go straight to 2K.
Gonna repost this for others to take action. It'll take literally minutes for you to follow these steps. I think we can all agree that competition will improve the quality of all football video games across the board.

I have exchanged many emails with 2K Ronnie. His reply is always 'he does not think 2K will ever make another football game without the NFL license'. So I would always stress that gamers want a non-NFL customizable game.
