We desperately need animated penalties

Currently, when penalties get called in Madden, half the time you can't go into replay and see why the call was even made. I want to see a facemask. I want to see a holding call. I want to see all these things with my own two eyes. I don't want penalties to feel like they're being called at random.

Some games already did this several years ago, and why it's not in Madden yet is anyone's guess. But I honestly think this would solve the problem of certain penalties never being called. Give pass interference it's own set of animations(one handed pushoffs if players are in close proximity to one another, jersey pulls, arm swats, etc). The way it is now, I don't think PI has a clearly defined trigger, whereas animations could solve this.

Doing this also opens the doors for multiple referees with tendencies, similar to The Show. Just because a penalty animation is triggered doesn't mean it should be called every time. You could set the percentage of a penalty animation being called at 100%, then scale down for each referee in the game. Ref 1 might see holding 99% of the time, while Ref 2 might only call it 70% of the time because he let's the players play.

Who wants to see the difference between a facemask and a personal foul? Who wants to see WR/DB interaction, especially given the possibility that PI could finally be called? Seriously, this could solve a lot of problems and I really hope we see this next year.

I've seen holding, facemask, clipping, and false start animations in the game, but that's about it.

Re: We desperately need animated penalties

I agree with everything you said. Even as a big Madden supporter, I'm not sure I have the confidence they will ever implement everything you mentioned. I could see them adding things here or there but I doubt we will ever be satisfied with the penalties.

I think penalties are low priority for EA because they could turn off the casual players. Because of this, I don't think EA will invest a lot in realistic penalties.

With all this being said, I do believe the current Madden team is focused on creating a realistic sim, so they could surprise me and I could not be happier to be wrong.

I've seen false start and clipping, never seen facemask or holding in Madden 25, and I tried to play a lot of it lol. Whenever a facemask penalty was called, it was always during a tackle where the defender's hand wound up close to the facemask, but I never saw a grab or a jerk of the facemask itself.

I wouldn't mind seeing this, but I just don't have the time personally to rewind every penalty or play on the field.

The games take over an hour as it is, but the more options for people, the better.

Another thing that would be neat is better crowd reactions to penalties or no-calls.

For instance, if a home team receiver drops a ball in the end zone while being closely defended, the crowd might boo because they want a pass interference penalty.

-or-

The same scenario happens but they do throw the flag and you hear the crowd cheering before the ref makes the call.

Well I didn't say they were good animations, lol! This is Madden after all. They are attempts though.

Exactly. Options.

You could still keep your penalty sliders low if you want quick games. I want my games as realistic as possible, so I'll keep mine set to a simulation setting that I find suitable.
