Re: Does EA even care about us?

It not having an ESPN presentation... The NFL is probably stopping it. Thing about it NFL has there own network and own presentation. Wouldn't they want that in there first? That's why I think it ain't happening.

All any video game company ( even 2k) cares about is money; EA is no different. Everyone knows what the difference is between EA and the other publishers ( making other sports games) that seem to care so much about their fan base.

On the bright side, many of the sites that used to be so pro-Madden with their reviews seem to be getting fed up with the way Madden has been progressing. Why it's happening this year ? I don't know. M11 wasn't nearly as good as M12, and if you take the reviews of M11 on this site and compare it with the reviews M12 got, the writers were way higher on M11. I have no idea why. Maybe they just expected a bigger improvement.

For me, M12 is enjoyable, but Madden still hasn't made that jump when moving from one console to the next that I was accustomed to experiencing with the transition to the PS1 to PS2/Xbox, and PS2/Xbox to PS3/360.

The big jumps that Madden has made are in the visuals, period. The features and game-play have remained stagnant, and in many they've cases regressed. EA can fix as many of Madden's problems as they want; they shouldn't have been in the game so long in the first place, and what gamers are really waiting for is for Madden to finally make that jump from last-gen to this gen. So far, it hasn't.

They can still use the NFL network style presentation with the Dieon, Rich Eishen, Marshall Faulk, Mooch, and Warren Sapp. They could make the presentation really authentic, but they don't, and every knows why. There's no need to beat a dead horse.

For all their talk about presentation, it's abysmal this year. They added new cut-scenes, and camera angels; who cares ? There's a lot more to presentation than that. The commentary is awful. How many times a game is Gus going to call someone a "primed performer ?"

This almost sounds like an EA Sports spin to wiggle out of putting in the extra work to make presentation better. haha

We start by not making another account when previously banned. then I can think of a few other ways that don't involve breaking the TOS.
