You sir are missing the point, the point isn't what game Backbreaker is, it's what can be done with technology that isn't being done by EA.

I'm not knocking at backbreaker, but there's soooo much more that is needed to make a good football game outside of just tackles.

So yeah... I'll wait for the gameplay vids and/or more news since there really hasn't been that much said about the game yet.

I am not missing the point. The technology as it stands now is not optimal for a sports game. Unless it's refined it's better left for shooters and over the top arcade games.

Someone's been drinking too much EA Kool-aid. Anyone with 2 eyes can see that this looks promising. I guess we'll have to wait and see how the final game turns out, but personally, this is what I imagined next gen football would look like when I put my money down on a PS3 5 years ago.

Maybe it's not optimal but does that mean it should be ignored???

It has nothing to do with EA. Look at the tackles. If you think they look like tackles in real football then you have no idea what a realistic football game should entail. The players become lifeless ragdolls when they're hit. That's not football.

Edit: I don't think it should be ignored...when did I say that? I will say EA's approach is leagues better. They should work with it slowly but keep their current method

You said the technology now is not optimal for sports. That implies it should not be input to current games. Why are you apologizing and excusing EA for their incompetence in their football games?

You're kidding right? Are you doing this as a joke or are you being dense on purpose?
