Will never happen. The only difference will be everytime Ian does a blog people will sarcastically reply "You said that last year". Then August will come and 90% of the people who said they wouldnt buy it will. And the cycle will continue.

This is just... A weird thing to say...

Either you're insecure in your own work and take what the zealots say to heart... Which I don't think is case... Or, perhaps you think your guile will win them over completely?

Or maybe you don't even know yourself???

That would be truly frightening.

Yes.... why is it funny? Its no overstatement.

Hes come on here made a bunch of blogs saying its sim its gonna be one of the greatest experiences in gaming history, all these promises and statements and such that if he does not deliver it will not only turn Madden over the edge into embarrassment but will Make EA a joke as well. Alots riding on this release, EA, and the Madden Franchise, if this game doesnt deliver like we;ve been told it would.


I have no clue why you thought that was an "overstatement"

Remember how last year we were learning about how we would have awesome endzone celebrations. At the very least Ian & Co. have been telling us about important features aren't total BS concocted to distract us from how little they change the game.

Thank you Ian for focusing on meaningful features instead of fluff. Stuff like new QB ratings, the spreading out of ratings, procedural awareness, and realistic movement will do more than let us pretend we're just like TO or Ocho Cinco.

Agreed...Ian has set our expectations very high, and if the game fails to meet our expectations, i dont think if would be an overstatement to say its one of the biggest video game let downs.

Hi Ian,

I'm curious to hear what reasoning they used to argue against you coming on here. To me its a no brainer, that taking advantage of the internet for this purpose is a fantastic idea and really I'm shocked that this practice is still extremely rare to this day!

I know you won't, but just to be sure, I hope you never second guess you and Phil's and the other's decision to communicate with us through this method. I strongly believe, as you probably do as well, that the result of this endevour will be even better than anyone of us could have imagined. I know you guys have to spend a lot of time unfortuantely fixing the mistakes made to this point, but while I still have high hopes for Madden 10, I believe that Madden 11 will blow us all away.

Keep up the good work!

I just don't understand how it could fail to meet our expectations. We have seen the blogs, the test footage, and the screen shots.

We KNOW the game looks great and we have seen that a LOT of the glitchy cliping animation speed up/slow down nonsence has been removed. FD dive, WR jostling, no more roadrunner stops/cuts. we KNOW these things are in and that they are working off of the 09 system instead of starting from scratch.

I have sadi it before but it honestly looks like Madden 09 is really going to be thought of as Madden 10-Beta.
