I have watched this too many times today. Gets funnier each time.

Re: EA Sports Says: It's Madden Season!

The question should be: Does the commercial itself make you want to go out and buy Madden 15, and to subsequently play it? Put yourself into a FPS gamers shoes, do you think that this spectacle would make you want to go out and try Madden?

To me, the commercial really had nothing to do with playing Madden, and I found it to be a waste of time, money, creativity, and effort that would have been better spent on game improvement. And I feel that a demo would have created a more positive buzz, and produced more new Maddenites than this commercial.

This commercial is no different than all the celebrity driven CoD commercials over the years. Just more hype to push a product that has been the same broken mess for years. And to the dude that said something earlier about not understanding why someone would say they should spend that money on the game, well maybe it's because the game has yet to change in 9+ years. Still no WR/CB real interactions. Oline play is still the same hybrid generic nonsense as ever. Still the same EXACT animations and physics of that old broken engine that should have be ditched once next gen consoles hit. Makes no sense that they didn't spend the money to rebuild the game and fix that crap. Oh wait, they don't have to. There's no competition and people will buy the game anyway no matter how broken it is because its arcadey and fun! Yeah, same game, different year. But if you guys enjoy it, more power to you.

You can construct any context you want to slight it, but which madden commercials in the past have had several page threads about it here, been plastered and re-plastered all over social media and even covered by many of the major sports news sites? This goes along with past efforts like Lewis vs Rudd that are more about awareness rather than 'look, the new defensive controls...'

It's obvious it's designed to be an absurd spectacle of a spot, not a comprehensive Madden sales pitch.

You are right that it has created a buzz, but what are the factors that you judge the buzzworthyness (threads or sales), and I might be wrong and sales could increase, possibly in part because of this commercial but only time will tell.

My point is that I feel that this commercial will do nothing to attract new customers, or bring back any of the old disenfranchised Maddenites. Because my son (who primarily plays strategy, and FPS games) won't be drawn in to buy Madden because of this commercial. And I guess I am just getting old, but I base my purchases off of what is in the game.

My girlfriend didnt even like this commercial and she liked Soul Plane lol. I understand they're marketing plan is to go after the pop culture teenage crowd though which they suceeded greatly at. It kinda made me want to just wait a month for the bball games though.

Yes it gets me hyped and that's who they are targeting IMO, long time Madden players...this isn't a commercial made for someone who has never played Madden..

I'm 44 years old and this is not a teenage geared commercial in my view...to me it looks like a satiric take on said commercials.
