As we all. However, as someone who is related to a person who works in the video game industry, I can assure you that focusing on franchise pulls exactly ZERO resources away from focusing on game play. Why? Because, as surely has been explained a bazillion times here, development teams are divided into specialists who work only on one part of the game. This is simply a necessity due to the complexity of modern games.


Gone are the days when Shigeru Miyamoto, creator of Super Mario, would design sprites, levels, code AI logic and so on. Now, you have designers, people who work on graphics, lighting, people who work only on animations, people who design models, and as for coders, even they are split into specific areas; my guess is in Madden you have teams designated for coding the logic of franchise and teams designated for coding gameplay. And it would not surprise me in the least if even gameplay is further subdivided.


Long story short: neither improvements to franchise, nor improvements to graphics/aesthetics/uniform/etc, has even the SLIGHTEST effect on improvements to gameplay. This MYTH is borne out of ignorance about how modern game design works. Games are simply too complicated for that sort of thing to occur, except in very small indie studios and lone programmers of crappy smartphone games.

Re: Anybody has Madden 19 news ?

Also just to add to my previous post, simply hiring more people to work on gameplay wouldn’t necessarily improve it much. They’d have to be the right people, and the team would need the right leadership and vision.

Not to mention, many of the problems are with the engine itself, and while over the years Tiburon’s people have found ways around flaws in the engine (an absolute staple of programming, by the way- in fact my brother had an argument with his boss two weeks ago about this very thing with respect to simulating physics), there may be limitations into how far they can go with it.

Tearing the whole thing down would require hiring an entirely separate team, since the game has a yearly cycle, and there is still no guarantee that what that team makes will be better than what the current team makes (see the “jump” from Madden 2005 to Madden 2006).

Other games like MLB The Show 18 got criticized for their lack of attention to Franchise this year, from what I read. It may be hard to find anyone who would say that Madden Franchise is as good as MLB's at this point in the series, so this would be a great opportunity on multiple levels.



I believe there are many players who will play a sports game if a particular mode is great, even if they do not like the sport, particularly well. If EA/Tib can make Franchise noticeably better, that could bring in more consumers.



My personal opinion is that MUTs excitement is peaked. I know I have been increasingly less excited to play the mode and grind the solos. There isn't much more they can do for that mode, IN COMPARISON, to what they could do in Franchise.



I also think a Road to the Super Bowl, or Road to the Hall of Fame would be great; This would be similar to Road to the Show in MLB. The issue is, outside recourse for such a project, is clearing up the means to use NCAA teams.


The return of Superstar would make me return to the game by itself. I could probably overlook my current gripes with the game for that alone.

I would love them to fix CFM first and foremost. Love them to tune up the AI logic on and off the field. But I think if they said "hey we didn't do anything different in Madden 19, but we did remove the Longshot story mode." I would buy it. My goodness what a waste of resources in development.

Those arent going to improve much until the completely overhaul the engine....something they havent done in a long long long long time.

Ive come to terms with the shortcomings of the gameplay. I dont like it, but they arent going to completely redo the engine....maybe ever. Why would they? They have sheep who buy the game every year regardless of what they put out. Thats why the game hasnt dramatically improved outside of graphics in about 15 years.

Re: Anybody has Madden 19 news ?

I just want Jimmy G's face in the game. And shorter long sleeves, and shorter undershirt long sleeves. And reversing the lighting at Levi's.

If they fix that, I can play as the 49ers with Madden 2018 and be happy.



...


Of course I'll take massive CFM updates and improvements in game play too.
