How Backbreaker can compete with Madden.

The customization in Backbreaker is pretty impressive, I must admit. And the engine is phenomenal. However, these fictional pro teams will just never sell, sorry. If Backbreaker wants to compete in the football market they need to secure a niche that has never been explored.

Imagine all this customization in a high school football game. It would be amazing. I think that is the route to go with this series.

IMO a horrible idea. Simply make a better, more complete game than Madden and you will crush it. Majority of madden players are looking for a good alternative already, it's just not there.

Add presentation, new camera, better franchise and BB will over take Madden easy. Gimmicks like this will only be a waste of money.

Aye, if you want to discuss this it needs to be in the Football (Other) forum.

Pretty much this.

Also if you think about the number of offenses and defenses in the NFL it's pretty limited compared to College and HS football. Imagine all the formations, playbooks, and AI that would have to be written to even approach that level of football.

BB needs to focus on getting NFL football right first. And after they get that down then the can worry about putting in all the crazy formations and schemes that HS's use.

Also with the customization tool you can create HS teams. And it's not like they are going to licensce players names from highschools, so you are back to the same problem as generic teams ( nobody knows what player X is capable of).

All in all a bad idea for BB. Maybe a good idea for another polished football game like NCAA or Madden to try, but BB isn't even close to being there yet.

Re: How Backbreaker can compete with Madden.

What Backbreaker needs to do is to try to be the American Football version of Winning Eleven soccer. No gimmicks like high school teams or anything, just focus on gameplay and customization. If they put out a superior game, people will eventually notice.

I pretty much agree, even without real players if they could make the game fully editable including players and add all of the above this game would beat out Madden,the engine is by far superior,however everything else isn't.

This game has to compete with Madden because the same people who would buy Madden or a 2k football game are the same ones who would buy backbreaker because most people on this site are either huge fans of football video games or lonely and we are the only ones tracking games like this being released........
