Ian and company were on twitter quite a bit. In fact that's the main reason I got on twitter. Also I think being accessible is interacting with the community, not going through middle men (gcers). I actually think some of the game changers take more heat than the developers do now.

Ian and Phil answered questions directly here. You could actually inbox them and a few other developers and they'd respond. You didn't have to rely on info from the person of a person who went to EA. They were part of this community. I've been asking questions on twitter for the past four years to various people on the Madden team and have only gotten a response once during a Q&A session. It got to the point where I didn't think I knew how to use the damn thing.

I will say this, though, I actually have conserved directly with a couple of the new developers about certain aspects of the game via old fashioned means during certain times of year and have found them very accomodating and friendly (Clint in particular). So, I don't want it to seem like I'm taking shots at the current team to prove my point. But I haven't seen many WIP videos of green screeen avatars posted on Twitter with a developer asking us what we thought. I haven't seen any of them upload a youtube video on a whim of them tweaking the pass rush the way Ian did to gauge time in the pocket. I could be wrong, though.
Both Ian and Phil in boxed me here a few times answering my questions. It's too bad other developers aren't on here interacting anymore. But I can't blame them. The abuse on here was pretty bad.

As long as people keep buying a sub standard product they will keep delivering substandard products

I am one of the older guys on here and until recently had been playing madden every year since 1989. It saddens me it has to come to me not buying the game anymore because of so few advancements, and in some cases, going BACKWARDS. I thought we would have something really special by now, and had there been a competitor we probably would. Exclusivity has killed Madden.
I would suggest renting the game before you deem it substandard.

I can already tell its substandard regarding the things that are important to me just by watching these videos.

Just because a game doesn't have everything you are wanting doesn't mean it's substandard, it means you don't like it. I believe M15 will be a high quality game in many areas. We're seeing an alpha build of the same two teams every time, this is the least amount of footage in years that we have gotten to judge a game off of. This team is trying to undersell over deliver so keep that in mind.

To be fair, if a game coming out in this year lacks the lings that previous games had a decade ago, would it not be 100% fair to deem it substandard compared to what we used to have?

@Jpdavis82:I know you are real high on this game and thats great. I hope you have hours of fun playing it. But the game is substandard to me when i can't get things that SHOULD have been in the game years ago.

How many years did it take for them to fix the WIND DIRECTION, for gods sake?

remember, I have been playing this game for nearly 25 years. if you want to keep buying Madden day one, go right ahead. But I will not. the game is not fun anymore. I feel like I have been playing the SAME GAME for years. they do the bare minimum they can to keep people buying it..... Until they show some effort, they will not see my money.

When a game that came out a decade ago can even compare to a game coming out today it is so far past substandard.

Just sit and think about that, a game that came out 10 YEARS AGO. Compare a game like NBA 2k14 to Live 04 or 2k4. It rightfully blows those games out the water. When we can say Madden blows a 2k5 or a 2k8 out the water then it cam be deemed on par with where it should be.
