Unfortunately there is a larger group and demographic of customers that do not at all care about the things we do. We could stop buying all we want and it would hardly put a dent in EA. The masses will still buy this game year in and year out.

Best to learn to enjoy what you can rather than yearn to have what you can't.
Yep. I love the NFL and love playing an NFL game.
Madden is not perfect by any stretch of the imagination but it's fun for me.
I'll buy day 1 (earlier if I can) because I can live with the shortcoming and have fun.
I'll continue to post constructively about what improvements I want (And for the record I like where it's going for the most part) but as long as I have fun, I'm buying.

I like it much less than you do. Mainly because of the off-field direction. With some significant changes toward realism to off-field and I could like this game a lot more.

I really have no problem with you liking it. Probably Just different tastes, expectations and different styles of playing the game.

Most of us buy Madden because we love playing football video games and we want to play a new game with current rosters. We buy Madden because it's our only choice. I wouldn't buy NBA Live because I have different choices.

In a nut shell.
Again I don't think Madden is near as bad as some want to preach to whoever will listen to them but if there was another choice I'd buy it also.
I say also because I'd still buy both more than likely unless one was IMO tons better.

Terrible news. Even if I loved Madden(I don't), I would want 2K or anyone to make football games. Competition is vital and brings out the most of the competitors.

Re: EA Still Owns the NFL License Exclusively

I stated this in the other forum thread, so, I will put it over here, too.

I can see why folks thought it was childish and smuggish of Rex, but I thought the way HHG built up the question, (seemed liked it took a minute to present the question), Rex was just as fired up as HHG was asking the IF question. I also took it as a display of passion, something as LBz mentioned, where the heck has this been the last decade.

Heck, this reminded me of Hasselbeck choosing heads in OT in Lambeau vs the Packers in the playoffs and saying, "We're going to take the ball and win." He didn't realize the refs mic was on. People's reactions and opinions were all over the place. He shouldn't have said that, oh, that's cocky, confidence, etc.......

Do I feel HHG and Rex over dramatized everything? Yes

Will I lose any sleep over it? Heck no.

It was a hypothetical question.

Bad news for NFL football gaming consumers and fans.

We all know for sure now that Madden is marketed as authentic simulation.
