Try not kissing a** next time.
First I must say great win by the Sounders against RBNY, what a way to start your franchise.

I do agree with you really. People can get excited as much as they want however, I really feel that when most people go over board to praise Ian and his crew just because of a screen shot and little additions they see from that screenshots, it can come back to bite us in the end.

You ask how?

Well if we are going goo goo gaa gaa over absolutely nothing then what is the incentive of EA really improving the game, when all they have to do is just toss out a few screenshots that look good and us praisining them to no end, and there we go they have us, no matter how the game plays, the screenshots back in March looked great and thus everyone will continue to buy the damn game, as if we do not have that problem now.

The point being I really wish fans would be a little more reserved to give credit just yet to Ian because lets face it, this is the same stuff we have been hearing the past few years expect its coming from a different podium.

That's the absolute truth. It's like every time a new politician takes office, all of his supporters run around thinking he will be different and make a change, and then by the end everyone realizes he is just another politician. (This was meant as an analogy to the gaming world, in no way, shape, or form am I referencing any past or present politician, for all you clowns who will get offended...)

Hey Fade,

yet people will call you and I names and call us out for trying to be a bit more realistic on these boards, soley based on past performances. Not to say that Madden 10 will be awful, however I just think the futuility of the Madden series over the years has really brainwashed most people in way that they see a screenshot that has details that have been in previous sports games dating back 6+ years ago and now we praise these guys to no end.

yes it is fantastic they are finally seeing the light, but its like Chris Rock said "Well I raise my kids...Iv never been to jail......what do you want a cookie?"...."you aint supposed to go to jail, you are supposed to raise your kids, that is the norm"....

and the norm for next gen football was to have these details in a few years ago not now and act like "omg we have come a long way in 4 months look at us now"....

not bashing Ian or EA but again people will buy madden regardless because as another poster put it, OS and other Madden forums are a very small percentage of the total demographics of Madden. The game will sell like hotcakes you wrap turd up in a xbox360/ps3 box and put the latest new nfl star in it. and that my friends is the main problem and the reason that we never see anything close to greatness from EA any more simply because the movitvation is not there.

I do hope I am wrong as I am football starved, and I really do not want to keep updating my rosters on 2k5 and want that HD look to my football videogames.

I really do hope I am proven wrong along with everyone else that are still holding back.

Re: Just 4 months ago...I think we're turning a corner...

Another issue I forsee is that this being Ian's 1st full year as the head honcho over there, I firmly believe it will take 2-3 years before he can produce everything he wants to give us in a Madden game, and the probelm with that is, come that time we will more then likely be in the next cycle of next-next gen consoles, which again will have him and EA start over trying to learn the development cycle of these new consoles and again given us the Madden we have come to LOVE/Hate in this gen.

Again this is just me speculating, I could be 100% wrong for all we know but that is another thing that worries me about Madden.
