Looking forward to trying it out. I'm off for 2 days after release so that works out great.
Good addition to the game.

Huh? EA didn't post it anywhere and invite feedback. Another poster, just like you simply posted it and now it's a discussion. Am I missing something?
The previous Madden feature he is referring to is called Skills trainer. It is in Madden 25 next gen. You get MUT cards for getting gold on each drill. It teaches you how to use the control schemes of the game and some football basics. This "New" gauntlet mode is a more fleshed out version with a voice actor on top of it. Its nothing new to Madden

At least they are taking steps to teach the "casual gamer" about the game and have a more realistic approach to it. We don't know if this mode is implemented in cfm in anyway yet so you don't have to use it if you choose not to.

Keep tooting that horn brother. You are the exact type of gamer that EA and Tiburon loves because they can just shovel incremental improvements down our throats and call it a day. I do respect your opinion, I just fail to see the light of honest improvement from Tiburon when they have a very nasty track record that proves otherwise.

How is trying to teach gamers football strategy not honest improvement?

I agree with you.

If this pans out, the result could be more player's favoring a Sim style of gameplay and not rely on those straight cheese plays they find on YouTube.

If people have fun with this, all the power to them.

If not, the mode will be skipped and not seen again.

Options, right?

Heck, a few years ago Mascot Mode showed up in NCAA. Not something for me, but my 11 year old at the time thought it was the cats meow and played it non-stop.

Did we get our moneys worth? Yes.

I'll judge for myself when it's time.

You said Fun doesn't require realism. I say that's very subjective.

Did you seriously just compare things that don't actually exist and are based on fantasy (sci-fi, fanatasy, medieval), to things that actually exist (sports)?

Of course things based on fantasy doesn't require realism. Last I checked traveling to other planets in spaceships to meet aliens doesn't actually exist. So of course those genres aren't going to be based on realism. You're trying to make comparisons between incredibly dissimilar genres.

I'm talking about SPORTS games. Based on something that actually exists. Specifically Madden. Why are you even mentioning genres so totally unrelated to Madden on a Madden board?
