Re: Ian or Phil - What are your Thoughts on a Play Editor?

My problems with Madden's playbooks is that they are far too small.

Especially defense. Not enough variety from team to team in terms of fronts and coverages. That's primarily the reason I want a play editor.

Re: Ian or Phil - What are your Thoughts on a Play Editor?

I'm not fond of the idea of paying for things that should've been in this game for years. Sure, adding this right now may cause a problem but had they been working on it for years to get it ready then there would be no problem.

Anyway, if it has to be either or at this point then okay it is what it is, but if it can be included in the game then it should be. No paying extra for it.

Once we start going down the road of paying for stuff like this, there will likely be no return and that won't be good for the consumer. EA needs to be adding more out-of-the-box value to the game we're buying off the shelves. It costs enough and they are certainly making way more than enough money already. We've all stuck with this franchise in what are now certainly its darkest days. We deserve every perk possible for doing that, lol.

I wanna see them discontinue all the side projects (games like NFL Tour-Street, Head Coach, mobile Madden's, and yes even the Wii version which hasn't done well sales-wise from day one) and pool those personnel/knowledge resources into Madden for 360/PS3. Now it looks like they're beginning to do that especially with some guys from Head Coach coming over to work on Madden 2010. But we need this to last long term.

Re: Ian or Phil - What are your Thoughts on a Play Editor?

I agree with the majority of people on this one. I don't mind the HC editor but I don't like that all of the created plays are grouped together. I'd prefer them to be grouped by formation. Online or offline doesn't matter as much as the freedom to use it anywhere in the game. Last point of agreement is at the very least I think we should be able to create a playbook like the previous console games so long as we would still be able to get quick access to sub packages.

Let's just get the Head Coach version into 2010. Once it's in then changes and improvements can be made in future versions. We always hear about limited development time in the production cycle...???

screw that, the Head Coach one pales in comparison to the last-gen version....Im tired of the excuses, especially when they already have an outstanding base to build upon( last gen).

For me it's more about the pure lack of blitz/stunt/coverage combinations. No tier play calling makes a play editor that much more necessary.

How about both?......
