This guy scored the game an A-????!!!!!!

And comes here and calls US suckers? Here's another word---suck up. As in, you didn't have the balls to post how crappy the game is in your national review, but slip in here and write this bunch on non-sense trash hoping your EGM editors don't notice. I can't freakin' stand flip floppers.

I was nice on the first post, but after hearing about your 'review', any respect for you went right out the door.

I liked some of what you said, but like the man you named at the end of your article, Obama, you talk about change but give us NO ideas.

Come on. Instead of just telling us what we already know is wrong how about you come up with an idea or two? Can't do it? Too busy just complaining? And all this after you gave the game an A?

I started off reading your column and thought it was going somewhere other than, "football sucks." I played soccer. I love it and do agree that some we've seen those games get better in giving us a real feel.

So how about you actually give some answers to the problem of defenses instead of just posting rants about they suck. You could just have been a random poster on here to put that droll up.

Instead you paint a world where it can't be fixed, but close with asking for a fix with no suggestions. What a joke.

I used to say, "Soccer Sucks" too. When I was ignorant about the rules and didn't understand anything about it. But, when I play Winning Eleven (Pro Evolution) a few years ago I was hooked. You never see the same goal twice! You have unprecedented control of your players. So, for everyone who just says "soccer sucks." Do you yourself a favor and buy PRO EVO 2008, it is really cheap right now, and if you play Master League, and are really honest with yourself, you will have a lot of fun.

Man OH Man this just kills me !!

NCAA does have some defense and also some nice defensive adjustments that you can make with audibles and defensive hot Routes......
HOWEVER !! You just don't have the time to make all the adjustments you would like to make with all the clowns online that play offense with a HURRY-UP mentality, Knowing this is the games biggest weakness.

I have this one buddy I play and we play it like a real game of college football and this in turn means you have some time to get a quick look at your matchups on defense and make the proper adjustments.

We are having great games with some good very defense.

This might be considered House Rules !! but the ONLY House Rule we really have is just to play it like a real game of college football.

Re: Video Game Football Stinks, and No One Seems to Notice

This is kind of a strange thread...

Anyway, the topic at hand. I agree that football defense, midplay, does suck. But there's not many fixes to it. And I kind of think it's a good thing. Football is a very team oriented game -- if one player screws up, it could ruin the whole thing for the team on that play. So I should rely on my teammates to make the right decisions. If they don't, eh, then we'll get 'em next play. If they do, great, good job. Just like in real football, one player doesn't make a team.

The real culprit here is the game AI. It has sucked, does suck, and will suck in the future.
