these are the posts i have issues with. really, is shadows really more serious than gameplay issues? hopefully ea gets the major stuff fixed first before trying to pretty up the game with minor details like that

EA needs to really focus on cutscenes and flow of the game next year. Everything is so fast, especially cpu-vs-cpu games. Slow things down and let them play themselves out. Have a halftime show that is in sequence and talks about the big plays. Have the proper cutscenes for what's happening on the field and don't have them seemed rushed and cut off before finishing. Gameplay is a must, but presentation is as well. Slow the flow of the game down, have informative stats overlays, and a constructive halftime show. Listen to the community Ian and we will help u along. constructive criticism is a must in gameplay and presentation. We all want the same thing, a game that represent the sport too the fullest of realism.

It's a start, but it hasn't got me forgettin' 2k5 which was Ian's stated goal.
Agreed, Madden still has miles to go to reach the level of 2k5.

first i will say i respect all posts and posters BUT.......

if there were no posts like this we would not be getting patches period,

this is the type of stuff they like to see and read because they add 10 things like this it looks like a long patch list and impresses some people...

i have yet to see the AI updated we have asked for years but nothing, but shadows, helmets, unis, gloves, shoes, team logos, mc donalds commercials, these things are first priority.....

if they were no vanilla posts patches would never come...

Which applies to all games ever that ever got a patch. Not just Madden or sports games.

That's the ideal. Perfect out of the box, never ever needing any fixing. Perfectly balanced, perfect graphics, perfect AI who wouldn't want that right out of the box? All "patches" then would just add more content.

Reality is, patches get put out to fix issues. I know I haven't played that game that's been perfect out of the box.

Could they get out faster? Maybe, though I would rather wait and get the patch done right that fixes the issues, then one that's fast and doesn't do a lot (or creates more issues as some has mentioned the 1st patch doing)

It's people like moegames here that are the reason we have to put up with this year after year. If you are more then willing to purchase and except a sub par product ,then said product will not improve.

This is the only thing I disagree with. EA made no efforts to really fix the game. Ian and company fixed things like presentation, they added medium, long, short accuracy and throwing on the run ratings for QBs, they got rid of the roll and chuck; however, the ratings mean nothing. Rating, attributes or whatever you want to name them are really what drives any sports simulation. The whole premise of a sports sim have a digital character in the game with the visual likeness and the ability of the player that is meant to be portrayed. A sports sim is supposed to incorporate the fact that certian players are superior or inferior to others; that players have certian strengths and weakness , certian players are stronger, faster or more agile than others ; the only way to convey that is through ratings.

It's been proven that the ratings are meaningless in Madden 10, so what really did the development team do ? If the engine doesn't work in a car, it's useless. Who cares if you put add rims, a new paint job, satellite radio or whatever else. The Car needs to run properly first. Without ratings, the game means nothing.
