I think you underestimate the popularity of the NFL in other parts slightly , whilst obviously it's a more niche sport it's way more popular in the UK than basketball imo , if 2k sells better than Madden elsewhere in the world it's almost certainly due to product not the sport

Your right, some could say that and that didn't pick up the pacing after Madden 25 was released till now.

My point still stands, though, two very different companies.

If the cpu plays a lot smarter I'll be very happy

Thing is, this game is the work of the previous regime. The new regime is simply promoting this product because it's what will hit the shelves in a few months. Their influence on the game will come in future iterations.

I like Ben and I'm encouraged by his acknowledgement that the community wants a weekly wrap up show. That's a starting point I don't think we reached previously. I would strongly encourage him to look past the highlights as a block to getting something out there - for me it doesn't make or break the wrap up show as a feature - and they could easily do something like MLB The Show does with its daily wrap up show but make it a more visual thing. Put an image up with the score of the game, a pic from that game behind it, some key stats or the storyline and then have some audio to support that. I don't see highlights, especially if it's that difficult from a technical standpoint, as pivotal to adding something that would enhance immersion.

This would definitely be a step towards the type of Madden I'd like to play.

But doesn't EA make much more money off of Madden? Not in sales of units, but say MUT.

I'm asking btw

Re: Madden NFL 19: The Full Interview With Producer Ben Haumiller

The main problem that I think everyone can agree on. When it comes to innovation, especially innovation in technology things are supposed to improve not regress. People reflect on nfl 2k5 and even older maddens as the gold standard. But madden hasn't gotten better and some would even say with the introduction of CFM things have actually taken steps back.

Case in point no one with an iPhone 8 is looking back fondly wishing they still had an iPhone 1. Why? Because the iPhone 8 is a vastly better product that has maximized the technological advancements available to it. No one with a brand new state of the art Mac book is fondly looking back wishing they still made em like the DOS processor.

You could argue that these are two different cases. They are not. The PlayStation 4/ Xbox 1 are vastly superior machines to the PlayStation 2/ Xbox. So why is the product not improving? Other games are getting better. Just look at franchise staples like grand theft auto V and uncharted 4. Everyone will largely agree that these games linear progress has surpassed their predeccors.

You want to honestly tell me that it's technical limitations that is holding madden back???? Don't get me wrong madden has been improving. But has been improving at a snails pace compared to other games. This leads me to believe there really is no motivation to innovate or break from the status quo.

We can't even agree on that. There are people that feel Madden has more than surpassed those old football titles. I'm not one of them, lol, but there are more than a handful of people on this very site that believe Madden is the gold standard now. Not as good as it could be, or should be, but that it is the best NFL game to date.
