Superstar Mode Suggestions

I disagree with the guys that say they should abandon the mode altogether. I'd much rather have them improve on it, for instance they can get more meaningful E-mails, I mean you can literally go through your whole career without opening that thing and not miss a beat. They can also have you be traded away without requesting it because people don't always choose to be traded. Also fix that whole Hall of Fame in two years crap. Get some better drills because being a RB with one blocker facing 3 LB's sucks.

Agree 100%. My guess is that it was thought up in some conference room during some brainstorming session regarding how they could innovate, etc. for a marketing bullet-point to put on the back of the box. Probably sounded great in theory, but a complete waste of development and user time as nobody cares and we just want good simulation football.

Wonder how long they'll continue to keep it.

The thing I hate the most about this mode is that once I get a lead the game starts calling ******** plays and uses horrible clock management that lets the other team stay in the game and even beat me sometimes.

Re: Madden Superstar Mode an Exercise in Awful

They still have SuperStupid mode???

Break it off, end it, I don't believe it has enough interested people to be it's own game, so why do they bother with it.

Prevent the stupidity of bad play calls and frustration by just giving guys the option to "switch" to a first person camera (or a camera that is like a over the shoulder 3rd person shooter) in the pause menu. Then it is an option for guys who like playing in that view and eliminates the need for a different mode as you could just play "first person" as your guy, then play the other side of the ball or supersim it as part of franchise mode

The whole idea is to get a guy to the HOF right, well doesn't M10 add guys into the HOF as the retire if they meet certain stat levels for their career - or is it just guys that are sure 1st ballot HOFers - cuz after a year or two into one of my franchises I saw Favre in the HOF and he is on the Vikes for 1 yr in M10 at the time I started that franchise!

I'm with you 110%... I've always been on this side of the fence with this stupid game mode... It belongs with the ring builder and card collector things of old. It simply needs to either be done away with, or included only as a DLC and nothing more.

I honnestly wonder just how much space and time it does take them in order to include this feature every year to simply fill up the disc?

Could that time and space be used to include more animations in every aspect of the game?

Could this time and space be used to include important features long since left in the last generation versions of this game like those for the franchise mode?

Could this time and space be used to creat something which would actuely make the game better and more unique, like a fully functional play creator?

Could this time and space be used to bring the franchise mode that much closer to what we got with Head Coach, which in my opinion as well as many others, think this is what a franchise mode should be like?

Could this time and space be used to creat a better and smarter running engine in order to creat a truely new and unique playing game of football...

Keeping this outdated game mode is like a guy saying "I like my two beat up and rusting ricer cars. And I'd rather have these two ricer cars instead of one mint super car that costs the same price." You can have two flawed and worthless things, or one truely great thing... The choice is (I'd say yours, but that isn't true) EA's... To be continued until 2012.

P.S. A thought occured to me the other day. I think gamers are going to the wrong place with their complaints about these games. We're happy to go to the EA people and ask them to fix, replace, repair the various issues with the game, but if this is an NFL licenced game... Shouldn't we be complaining to them in place of the EA teams? I bet the NFL has NO idea that gamer are not happy with this kind of stuff... Perhaps it's time to clue them in?
