Still feeling harried Todd? That's okay.

It would be cool if you at least came back, but as Stephen Colbert says: apology accepted.

I agree and that's why I don't buy Madden.

-True gang tackling, like in NFL 2k3, 2k4, and 2k5. Yes, it's literally been over five years and EA is STILL behind when it comes to tackling animations.

-More control. This means more than just two buttons for swim or spin moves on the defensive line. It means more fluid control of your player that you select, since you can only select one of eleven.

-Camera. It's currently very difficult to even play as a CB because the camera doesn't show the entire field.
I think the "More Control" suggestion is the biggest one. It just isn't as fun as it should be to break blocks as a LB or rush the passer. EA really needs to work on this area.

I alos love the camera suggestion. I would love a defensive perspective camera like you have on offense. Why should we have to play from the QBs point of view while playing on defense? It would be fantastic if you could play from a view that was behind you facing the offense (at least while on defense). At least give us that option and it should be easy. I'd be willing to give it a try.

Wow... I've never seen this article.

Very, very true and I agree with it for the most part. There hasn't been much progression overall in the football game genre in the last few years.... some big inclusions here and there, but overall I feel like I'm playing the same game from 3 years ago.

But isn't that true of most sports games?

Honestly? I don't feel so.

Baseball, basketball and hockey have improved tremendously. Football... not so much.

Until the tackling engines get upgraded, the games will continue to feel like more of the same.

PS2 NCAA is my favorite football game (2k5 come in a very close second) and no next gen football game yet has fulfilled my hopes
