You Will/Won't Buy NHL 16 If...

What will prompt a purchase or mean missing NHL 16 next cycle? Interested to see people's opinions.

Re: You Will/Won't Buy NHL 16 If...

I will only buy NHL 16 if they fix be a gm mode, since that's all I play. right now it just feels like 'play now' but with standings. also, they have to bring player editing back.
definitely not buying it on release day this year.

Re: You Will/Won't Buy NHL 16 If...

I have a list of five things that must be present in NHL 16:

1. Defensive tools/skill stick
2. Neutral zone pressure
3. More separation in player ratings & performance (plus add ability to edit)
4. Better goalie mechanics/AI
5. Improved/deeper BaGM

I'll take 4/5 of these things and still be happy. But leave more than two of these out and I'm done with EA NHL. We're in year two for next-gen. There's no excuse for NHL 16 not being a fantastic game.

Online franchises/GM connected already confirmed out. Pretty much a no.

BaGM offline, player and team differentiations (hate to see that you cannot distinguish players except by their jersey numbers), better game play.....etc ...etc. etc.

In other words, I need to see a very noticable change in 16 before buying. This will be a rent for me just to check personally if they improved or not.

I need BaGM improvements and edit player to be back in. If not, I will not buy.

Re: You Will/Won't Buy NHL 16 If...

First and foremost, EA will have to dispense with the cloak and dagger bull**** about the game before I even consider purchasing it. If they repeat the same malarkey that they pulled last year...It's an automatic no.

Feature wise, I need to see that the game AT LEAST, has the same functionality (modes, feature, ETC...) as NHL14.

Gameplay wise, I need to see that they fixed the terrible defensive coverage by the CPU (teammates and opponent)....I shouldn't have to cover the slot 100% of the time as a LWer.....that is what the D-men and centers are for. There are other gameplay issue (of course), but the Dman coverage is my main one.

Re: You Will/Won't Buy NHL 16 If...

TBH I think I will being getting 16 no matter what. I skipped out on 15 and I need my hockey fix on next gen. But they should bring back player editing and IMO revamp BAGM. Either make it like 2K's MyLeague or MyGM but I want more control and options. Also create-a-draft class would be nice.
