Playing 08 on PS2 again and...

So picked up 08 on the PS2 again and boy did I fall in love again. The gameplay has brought me back to my high school days of enjoying playing. No need to edit everything to give me that ďsimĒ feel or to correct the garbage that I just spent $60+ on.

Started a dynasty up and I decided I was going to play every game to make my own college football universe. Iíll be the one creating the upsets or the blowouts. I have had some pretty great games so far far. A couple blowouts against FCS teams, I was blown out once, and had a real tough one so far.

Well, I decided I was going to edit some equipment on the a few star players for each team to make them stand out a bit more. So I looked at ratings while I was doing that, and I noticed something that I thought was funny...

The ratings on this game are so simple. You awareness and speed and all the basics. Thereís no 5 different categories per rating like you see nowadays. It got me to thinking, could this be why games today are so wonky and what we feel not ďsimĒ anymore? Could EA be trying so hard to make it ďrealisticĒ that they are actually making it worse? Why not just go back to the basics and work on more depth for games?

Just something that popped in my head and was curious what others had thought about. Sorry if this has been talked about before. If it has then just ignore it.

NCAA 08 was my least favorite of that gen. 06 is the best. Nothing has topped it.

That said, I still prefer 08 over the PS3/360 gen.

I would have def went with 06 if they had a copy. I like to look at them before I buy it. Thatís why I donít buy em online. That being said, I think thereís something about the ratings on this gen that made it so much better and able to go more in depth.

I second this. There are times I prefer 06 over 14. It just played really well. My only gripe is having been used to the coaching carousel, it annoys me to not have it. The gameplay in 06 is fantastic though.

What makes you guys say that? Iím curious. I never played 08 before now on ps2. 06 was my last until I upgraded to the PS3 and so on. The 8 games Iíve played, I donít have much to complain about but I know I have to play more until I can make a final decision. Just looking for input to keep an eye out for.

Thanks. The purpose of creating REVIVAL was to give other gamers a real coaching perspective to the game and to show how deep. 06 really is. I hope I have done that so far.
