The Immersion Breakers thread

These are small little things that aren't exactly bugs but they break the immersion by reminding you it's a game. Things like...

Players celebrating a first down by throwing the ball into the stands

Seeing players on the field and then on the sidelines in a cutscene then back on the field in a span of about 3 seconds.

What are some other immersion breakers that you see when playing this game? Bugs don't go here. There's already a place for those.

Re: The Immersion Breakers thread

Players with the avalanche X factor forcing fumbles on almost every hit is absolutely ridiculous.

Re: The Immersion Breakers thread

On Field:
  • No Referees on the field.
  • Low quality player models on the sidelines.
  • No big kick/punt returns. I don't think I've seen one go for a TD in over a decade.

Franchise Mode:
  • Trade Logic makes no sense.
  • No 46-man gameday active list.
  • Playing four straight home or away games in a row on the schedule.
  • Every Contract is backloaded.

Sim Stats:
  • Slot receivers like Cole Beasley leading the NFL in receiving yards.
  • Lamar Jackson, Josh Allen, and Kyler Murray not having a ton of rushing yards.
  • Bad QB's like Mitch Trubisky throwing for 4000+ yards, 35 TD's.

Re: The Immersion Breakers thread

Can we just create one thread where everyone who has an unhealthy relationship with Madden can go?

There are too many posts and threads like this that literally serve no purpose. If you're not happy with the game, that's fine. Either don't play it, or find a purposeful way to get your voice heard.

Don't clutter up the board for everyone else.

INB4 - 'So just shut up and dribble yeah?' On this board, yes. EA aren't reading your complaints. I am. Go talk to them directly if you have issues with the game that you'd like resolved. We can't help you with that here.

To me, this is probably the most unforgivable immersion breaker. Not just because the Madden team half-fixed the issue last year, only to un-fix it this year, but because the cover athlete is a generational dual-threat talent! How can you disrespect rushing QBs in Franchise stats when you are selling your game with a rushing QB?!?!

I clicked specifically to reply. However, even if I ignored it, posting this thread bumps an actual thread off the bottom of the page that people now might not see, and these kinds of posts often appear in otherwise purposeful threads.

Re: The Immersion Breakers thread

Had my user controlled LB straight up freeze mid-motion in the middle of a play in coverage while the WR broke a tackle and ran into the end zone. Dude basically did the heisman stance in the middle of a play and got stuck. Should have recorded it but it was horrible


Seeing defensive players celebrate after giving up TDs. Offensive players celebrating after turnovers too.
