Will Madden ever be as Authentic as it used to be?

As I play Madden 19, its a good game but when I have a 3rd and 1 and I run the ball and I get a yard and after the play the ball is on top of the first down marker and they say it's 4th and inches, that bugs the hell out of me. What happened to the chain gang? What happened to refs calling for a measurement? In this day and age of technology its unacceptable to not have stuff that was in games 10 to 20 years ago. I still think about how madden and college football was on the original xbox. Those games seemed like they had everything that's missing today. Thoughts?

Am I feel you!

I remember the injury cart/ambulance comes out on the field while players standing their getting trampled LoL.

But yeah I feel the game is long overdue for true authenticity but they just don’t have the time or really a plan of action to make this happen!

I have said this several times before and I dunno why it’s an Issue but you don’t tear down your whole house and foundation to add a bedroom or re do the kitchen. So to me this is what ea does with its sports games every year

Even with the chain gang trotting out, you will still be marked short of the first down. Madden is terrible with ball mark placement near the line of scrimmage and will 95% of the time mark you short of the first down.

Challenges are also a waste in their current state.

Yeah, it's pretty ridiculous. It's not like these features would be difficult to implement. It's fundamental football principles.
But, you know, why focus on fixing that when you can make more virtual MUT cards for people to buy?

I feel like the game is coded to produce an artificial number of "and inches" outcomes to create more dramatic situations. Defenders seem to get an incredible boost in tackling at the first down marker and ball carriers get passive animations too often in those scenarios. As you say the ball marking is bogus much of time too. The only saving grace is that it affects both the User and CPU the same.

I disagree with the title of the thread though. Some presentation elements were better in the past, but IMO the gameplay of Madden was not more authentic than what we have today. Expectations are just exponentially higher than they've ever been before.

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.

I've devised a fool proof method of thwarting bad ball spots. I throw, past the marker, on all high leverage downs.

Exactly....and i never buy that crap. Im not spending another dime for crap like that and imo they can get rid of those things and focus on other things that SHOULD matter.
