Skipping out on Madden 21

Wanted to see how many of you are skipping out on Madden this year, I for one am sick and tired of the lack of innovation in franchise and presentation every darn year with this game, I've purchased Madden every year just because if I wanted to simulate the NFL this was it, well not this year, I'm not giving EA money for the same game with a new RPG story mode, I don't need my sports game to be an RPG, I just need a good franchise mode and good gameplay. It's a shame that a game now 16 years old NFL 2K5 had so much more in it's presentation and gameplay than a game developed 16 years later with more advanced hardware. PS Why has Microsoft never added NFL 2K5 to the backwards compatibility list??

Pretty disgusted with EA that the only things they added to franchise is the Oakley visor and a few new faces despite all the feedback... They won't even bother to add other features from the Yard and FOTF to franchise. I'll wait until November to see how the PS5 version is and if EA added new features to the mode like they said they would. If not, i'll pass.

Yeah Iím skipping it. Iím a franchise player and thereís nothing for me in the game anymore. Madden 20 fizzled out quick so I guess Iím just done with NFL games. At least Iíve still got a working PS3 and NCAA

I can't see buying it this year considering how little work has gone into franchise mode. I'm not sure I will ever buy another Madden unless there is a major change in creative direction.

Yep, same here.

I've been here long enough to know who are my trusted advisors and based on the results, I'll be picking it up too.

I played the beta and based on the trusted advisors, the game didn't change from the beta.

I support FM and all additions it should deserve.

#FixFranchiseMode movement needs to keep the peddle down.

Re: Skipping out on Madden 21

First time in 15 years I won't be buying it. They won't notice but I can't put up with the fake transparency bull crap any more.

I know I'm not the only one.
