You need to get current on the news. Franchise has had a lot of changes this year and some are pretty big such as random drafts.

Well, that's sound logic.

For me, it's by far the pass inaccuracies. If they work as they're advertised, it should open up the variety in the pass game a ton. Fingers are crossed because the videos I've seen haven't showcased it too much.

i just dont understand the logic here, madden has had awful gameplay for a while now. i could care less about presentation no matter how good it is if the gameplay is terrible

I completely disagree. Madden 25 on next gen has awesome gameplay, best I've ever seen in a game. Yes you get a wonky play now and then but overall it plays a great game of pigskin.

would you consider yourself a simulation player? gameplay might be good if you like to cheese

Yeah I'm a sim player but I'm not crazy anal and over analyzing sim players like some folks on OS. And yes I'm aware players can still cheese and exploit the game online. However, as a long time gamer I realize that so long as people are given a game they will find ways to break it. So with that in mind I either play people I know or go online and don't get upset if I get some idiot and just roll with it.

And with that being said, EA has done a good amount of work on improving some of the cheesier aspects of the game such as running backwards 40 yards and throwing across your body 50 yards while you are facing backwards.

So yeah I'm sim but I'm also a realist and since I play a lot of games I know whenever you give people a game there will be people who do their best to find ways to cheat and break the game. That will never change and EA, for the most part, shouldn't take the blame for idiots who choose to abuse the game and play it in an unrealistic manner.

i see what your saying but in my opinion, its the gameplay that allows them to cheese. if the game was more realistic the cheese wouldnt be as bad. there is absolutely no footplanting in next gen madden at all. sliding and ice skating galore. defensive players are stupid as hell. no one knows how to set the edge

Re: Madden NFL 15: Three Things To Be Excited About

M25 had decent gameplay but it had many legacy issues and, in the end, still failed to deliver a truly sim experience vs the CPU. Just my opinion, of course. IF someone feels it was the best game of football ever, that's totally cool. All entitled to our opinions. I think the biggest problem on OS isn't anal sim gamers but posters thinking their perception is fact and everyone else is wrong, only they are right.

I don't expect the game to ever be perfect, but the fact that we still (as of M25 next gen) have a few long-standing legacy issues in the standard

It did make steps in the right direction, and M15 seems to continue to make steps in that direction. Whether we are where the game should be at by now, we don't know yet, but even if it doesn't end up doing everything we want it to, M15 definitely looks like a good game and I can't wait to play it myself.
