Re: Madden 18 vs Ncaa 14: We deserve better

Nothing will ever top NCAA for me just because of the nature of the game. I'm not a fan of NCAA football in real life, but for a video game man.

Recruiting and new players kept it naturally fresh. The ability to go to different schools and build them up. And of course, the margin of error to win a championship is very slim vs. Madden you obviously could lose up to 6 games in the regular season

Re: Madden 18 vs Ncaa 14: We deserve better

If NCAA was backwards compatible on the CBOX One I would almost guarantee I wouldnít give a thought to buying any Madden game. I love the college football series and have played so much of NCAA 14 and never got tired of it. The problem with playing it now is hat I would need to have a second console setup as well as my capture card to document my dynasty. If I didnít need either of those, I would be playing this game non stop.

Re: Madden 18 vs Ncaa 14: We deserve better

NCAA 14 is a prime example of quality over quantity...

The game doesn't use a tenth of the new gen tech, yet it feels more polished and refined than anything we've gotten in the last five years. The AI in that game is some of the very best AI I have ever played against in my life, both on and off the field. It continuously makes smart decisions that benefits the current and future of it's team, without completely being dependent on OVR's of players. I've seen programs sub in bulldozing HB's at 4th and goal just to receive that extra opportunity. I've seen Freshman QB's get the nod over Senior QB's with two, three, sometimes four point OVR's better. The coaching changes are heavily dependent on finding the right scheme fit, you aren't going to see a west coast spread coordinator go to a longtime pro style program who has a pro style coach. There are too many things to name, truly.

College sports aside, NCAA is just a flat out better overall game in every regard. Game devs are so focused on giving us more, more, and more, but in reality, I just want the best possible version of stuff we already have.

I have it digitally on my 360 but unfortunately I can't play it because after it starts and I select teams it always freezes and I get a disc cannot be read message. Every time.

If you downloaded the uniform packs try deleting those, they cause the game to freeze

Re: Madden 18 vs Ncaa 14: We deserve better

I almost exclusively play NCAA 14. My 360 gets way more use than my PS4, which is what I play Madden on.

Donít get me wrong, when I pop in Madden the graphics are insanely better and overall movement is better. NCAA just has a bit more depth. We donít get financials, but recruiting and coaches we do. Plus...128 teams to choose from lol

I will mainly disagree on scheme for coaches in NCAA. Iím in tear 2022 and have seen many programs go entirely different directions. Arizona State is triple option, and becoming better. Texas Tech is no longer Air Raid...and they suck lol.

Otherwise all those are great points
