Do this today: Instead of $%*#[email protected]& on a game you're not going to play or movie you're not going to watch, say something good about a piece of media you're excited about.

Do the same thing tomorrow. And the next. Now do it forever.

1 - Making video games is hard. Especially in AAA.

2 - Specific to Madden, Madden is a massive game with a lot of cooks in the kitchen; not only developers and designers and the layer-cake code base with a mix of new and legacy tech, but licensing partners, marketing, corporate, and so on. Any decision about any feature add is planned months if not years in advance most of the time.

A designer-type friend once told me that working on Madden was akin to steering an aircraft carrier. The thing is capable of turning and will turn when asked. However, it takes a lot of people to start turning, and once you start turning you're not stopping, so you better be damn sure you want to turn before you do, otherwise you're going to run other things over and make a mess.

No one is holding a gun to your head and forcing you to buy or play the game. If you're tired of being disappointed, I'd recommend seeking out a different game which makes you happy instead.

Sorry for the nagging post. I'm just really ready to Make Madden Great Again
How many indie developers do you see out there attempting to make basketball, baseball or soccer games? Yet we have 3 attempting to make football...

Something alot of people really don't bring up. Really speaks to the quality of Madden over the years.

In this very thread there are posts chastising people for buying the game.

I know these friends and colleagues in particular to exceptionally talented people. Further, I also know the stresses that they willingly endure to pursue a career they love. To that end, the dismissive and ignorant notion that these guys and girls are just sitting around drinking beers and yucking it up is frankly insulting.
With that being said, is it really difficult to relate to some of the posts in the thread and on OS over the years? The frustrations that have come with this product, some unwarranted. I honestly don't think from the posts I view that people are asking for really unreasonable requests.

I can understand having a personal relationship with the producers of the product creating an unrealized bias.
