Re: Is Madden dying?

@GAV: I don't know who you are or what you do for a living but dude if you made a football game "I'D ####'N buy it". You are saying the same stuff I have been yelling when i play this madden or past years madden...On run plays as you mentioned before i get a Guard or Tackle to pull on a sweep and the guy has a complete Line on a safety or Corner and he either whiffs on the guy or the DB takes him out and takes me down in the process...Look like most guys I would love to see some visual stuff in the game to make it look nice lol--And that's where 2k11 comparisons started for me just seeing what 2ksports had/has been doing even with they're NFL series TV styl Presentation...Now back to madden, as you were addressing with the new button layout for tackling: I love it and think it would help things drastically and give you more control of a play on the defensive side of the ball. EA claims to have the offensive blocking fixed but it really isn't, sometimes your offensive linemen miss blocks or don't block the right guy or most cases get beat by a smaller player which should never happen and doesn't in the real life game that EA is trying to mimic. EA should devote more time into the game ( more than they do now). They are getting better but are still suffering in the little areas that could make a "HUGE" difference. The button layout isn't that big as far as adjustment goes..hell i find myself sometimes pushing the X button repeatedly during a tackle and moving my left stick during a tackle to get the ball carrier down hoping it would have an effect on the play. Bottom line man that if you could put up the money, have a decent presentation and the License I'd buy the game..sometimes the little things go along way..have you given any thought on how you would address Ball carrier controls?? Just curious but I'm digging the Defensive button settings you are recommending.

Thanks homie. I'm a competitive Madden player. I've had some time to view the game from afar because I hurt my hand and haven't been able to play for a while. My focus is usually on applicable strategy.

I think these changes are applicable and would make the game considerably better.

New tackling controls revisited...

If you miss a hitstick, you can still access the break down animations as long as the ballcarrier doesn't immediately create space between him and the defender.

Madden is getting more attention than ever because it is the lone NFL licensed product. I personally thought Madden 10 was awesome however this year EA did what it does best -- Remove options and presentation items.

What EA needs to do with its exclusivity is:

1) Develop some sort of presentation package that includes highlights and scores from around the league. The Extra Point was bare bones but a great starting block...Too bad it was removed.

2) All uniforms ever worn by NFL clubs AND done accurately

3) Classic stadiums

4) Get with the guys who did NCAA to work on run blocking animations...

5) Fix the player models...

6) Fix lighting...No dynamic lighting? No dynamic weather?

Madden 11 is in no means a terrible game. I think the leap that NCAA 11 took put Madden under the spotlight as to the number of things missing. NCAA's online dynasty is a huge reason the game has a big following along with the ability to follow your OD online by going through a website.

I personally feel that this year's game did very little to improve over last year and people are getting tired of paying $60 for roster updates, especially in this economy. I hope the Madden team does what it can to bring the franchise back....
I think to most it's the gameplay that's bad including myself.
