Definitely agree. Team EA Madden needs to keep the game screen visible at all times.

During play selection, simply shrink the game screen down (sort of like a picture in picture effect) with Play Calls, Score Board, Timeouts, along with a description of what happened during the previous play (45 yard TD pass to Boldin #81 (1) from Kapernick #7 (2). etc. etc.) surrounding it. Once the play has been selected, the in-game action should zoom back to full screen mode. This way, the gamer can see everything that happens on the field. Replay mode should also use this effect so the gamer can see the replay play out.

I quickly drafted up something that should work to keep the gamer immersed. The "other" game had something that continually kept the gamer immersed during the gameplay selection screen.

TEMPLATE 1: Play call selection on LEFT and RIGHT side of screen with game play screen shrunk down in the middle.




==============================================
TEMPLATE 2
Play call selection on TOP and BOTTOM side of screen with game play screen shrunk down in the middle.




==============================================




==============================================




==============================================





















Side Note: Was watching some highlights on MLB.com, and I've screen captured one image that team Madden can use as a template of sort to keep the in game action continuously visible to the gamer. During the play selection screen, Madden can show real game time action for both the defensive and offensive team. This is another idea to the above that team EA Madden can use to keep the gamer continually immersed.

Also forgot the game breaks where they show a big play from other games. Fox and CBS always do agood job with these.

Always feel funny asking about things that aren't gameplay related as gameplay is what's most important to me, but one of the big stand outs of last generation was the lack of living sidelines. Haven't played Madden 25, so this may already be in the game, but have they implemented living sidelines where players are aware of the game and responding to the on the field action? Seeing statues and frozen people on the sidelines detracted from the reality of the game a bit for me as they were seen quite often.

Negative. "Living Worlds" was hyped to no end, then after release of M25 they gave the usual spiel about "first year tech" "will be expanded more year over year", now in M15 the "world" still isn't fully "living", they just added a little more to it.

This is just added to the list of next gen disappointment with Madden. Reading through the "Ignite" features on the EA Sports website reminds me nothing of what I've played in Madden 25, and have seen from Madden 15.

I also think there just isn't enough traffic for the look of the sidelines. It just looks empty. Not to mention the characters are so far from the action/sidelines. With the power of these systems it should just look like a mass of people. Honestly from what I've seen it doesn't look like anything that couldn't have been done on previous gens.



I know this is a superbowl shot, but just look at the mass of people. If they can't have a lower res version of all or most of the players, at least get the look of it right. I'd settle for generic characters if it looked as packed as this.
