For some there isn't one, so round and round we go.
Nah. Thats your weak tired deflecting argument. My post speaks for itself. It also illustrates why I don't expect Madden to change course. Which I'm fine with, BTW. I adjusted my expectations and time/money spent on Madden years ago. There is no next discussion point for me. Just giving my 2 cents.

Most of what you said is true but I don't blame guys who want to spend their money on what they likeor dont. With that being said for me I look at the glass being half full. I love football period and have made sacrifices each year with Madden's mediocrity.

We all hope that they get it together because we'll there is no other football gaming company. Buying Madden each doesn't mean you approve of everything in the game it could be as simple as getting your football fix..

I am a firm believer of Twitter and the instant response you may or may not receive. My response rate has been about 50/50.

Maybe some people are blocked on Twitter or don't want to set up an account, I don't know, but then, yeah, OS would be the place to get your voice heard.
I never really felt acknowledgement/ a response on Twitter but maybe it's because I only tweet about getting rid of XP lol

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

I'd just like to see Madden have the same immersion as some of the other football games of the past. I'd love to see the score updates that were in NCAA, the highlights from NFL 2k5, it needs something. I just wish Tiburon were more aggressive with Madden. Hell I'd be happy if they brought back player of the game.

There's just a lazy or careless approach to implementation with the Madden franchise. Not calling the devs lazy at all, I know those guys bust their *** for EA, but the way things are untouched, or left in the game, or just simply omitted, it gives me that impression. I just wish they attacked their game in a more aggressive fashion.

This right here is so tired, the veiled notion of "if you don't like it don't play it, move on AND STFU ". This notion, like many others, is so old hat because at this point it's been countered repeatedly why people don't just STFU. That's besides the point that either what is being said about the game has merit or it doesn't. If it has merit and it's valid, no matter what it is, should be known, an informed consumer is a good thing. Notice I didn't single out just issues but anything that has merit about any game is valid. Just because with Madden the valid issues for sports emulation far outweigh the valid substance, ain't anybody's fault but EA Tib.

Also it baffles me why some want to pretend to not understand that all this is just discussion for posters like me. No different than going on a forum about a myriad of topics that I don't expect to result in anything other than marking some time and maybe gleaning some new info.

For me considering I play Madden very little at this point, to at least have some first hand experience with the product I discuss, my POV is the opposite of yours. Games I actually play extensively I don't end up discussing much if any because I enjoy them and would rather be playing than talking about them. I especially couldn't care less what valid issues other have with games I enjoy nor does that impact me in the least bit. To borrow your analogy, it's like a guy in a relationship with a female caring about what other guys think of her.

With Madden, since I don't get enough enjoyment playing and there is no other current licensed football game to play, I get my "fix" from the discussion.

I agree with all of this.

And with over a decade on here, nothing has changed with their process of manufacturing the game.

We, at OS, are not going to change that process based on the past decade.

For example, some people wanted a franchise overhaul this year, and based on past history, I knew they would offer three or four improvements for this Madden. It's like clockwork.

If you go back to the Carlos interview, it's similar to listening to a Rex interview when he climbed aboard. We are going to lay a foundation, get gameplay right, and build up from there.

It's also frustrating when I hear guys that are supposed to represent us to an extent(game changers) say that things have changed. They still develop the game in pieces and I've heard guys say that's not true anymore.

Just for an off topic example, the new qb animations are a WELCOME change for me, but then I see some of the same broken "walk up" animations in the footage, and the same awkward qb throwing animations. For once I'd like to see something TOTALLY addressed in one year. It just throws off the balance.

I don't know if this is confirmed, but I heard that the half-time show was changed. Again I don't know, but I could see them just touching half time and leaving post game absolutely the same. Stuff like that just irks me.

I also noticed how they change the QB introductions, again, a very welcome change for me, but why leave in that same cutscene where the wide receiver taps the QB on the top of the helmet? It's been the same for years.

I just get tired of things not changing year after year.

Some people might have the opinion that I don't enjoy Madden. I do. I like the game. I've played it more the past few years than I ever have(16,17,18), but I'm not gonna front or lie like it's a good game. It's not a good game to me, yet I still enjoy it.

"Randy moss the best DT in the league"?!?! Are you being sarcastic? If not how old are you?

I ask because randy moss is a hall of famer and might be the most physically gifted WR to play the game so I am confused. Might have been before your era
