Re: new creative director for EA's football games

I'm sure EA sees the most complaints are in the simmed stats and animation/gameplay areas. So again, I'll save my opinion of the new creative director once M11 info starts coming out.

Agreed. I want the fundamentals to be realistic, but the feedback, play calling, and etc doesn't need to be toned down (which has been the route Madden has always taken). I'd like to see more information on the players. The confidence level in the QB, the play maker icons for the defense and my players (even if it's only toggable) so I know where the play makers are lined up.

Well said Brian.

I'm with you on the "wait and see". Besides...what else can we do?

I like to think if they had hired "VC castoffs", it would have for many of us, injected a real spark of interest and excitement. Something imo anyway... both Madden/NCAA franchises need. Personally speaking, and no bash intended...I've lost interest in both titles. After buying both for years.

Like you Brian, and I'm sure for most...I also hate to think Madden/NCAA would be "dumbed down". Imo, that would be a critical mistake. If taken too far in that direction, I believe long time customers would be bailing in droves. And the gaming sites would be, I believe, be panning this type of move. I think your spot on about games like FIFA. And I'll include "The Show" and my personal favorite NHL. These games overall are very well thought of. Because of improvements that have enhanced the feeling of realistic gameplay. While I can't really speak for The Show, or FIFA...but I believe a focus on a more in depth and realistic franchise mode, has helped these games as well.

For me anyway...I'm willing to roll the dice with this new hire. To see in time, if his impact will give these two games the shot in the arm I feel they need, to renew my lost interest. But if to "streamline" and/or "dumb down" is in the works...epic fail imo. Which I doubt they'll do.

Re: new creative director for EA's football games

Well, I've moved from the "wait and see" to the "nervous" side after reading this article:

From what I've seen in the past, Madden + Innovative = Trouble
