Agreed. It pisses me off how they could make this game great if they wanted too.
Bring back Franchise, make it more realistic with trading draft picks and all. Retiring numbers, FA, scouting prospects...I think it would be awesome if they can have next years draft class already made and have guys just project how successful they'll be long term. For example: After you go through a season on next years madden, when your scouting players and all you'll see Johnny Manziel & Clowney already there. They could hire Mike Mayock or someone to talk about the projected top 32 picks or something. It's not like he's extremely busy doing something other then scouting or calling thurs night games.
-Commentary is horrible once again. I wish they would say stuff like, "Joe Flacco.... deep pass....Torrey Smiths got it!! He's at the 10, the 5, TOUCHDOWN!" They might of added new phrases and all and put more time into it but they could do alot better play by play. This might be a strech but get Phill Sims and Jim Nantz to do like 30 mins of recording each week. Instead of all at one time.
-Make playbooks more realistic, add pistol to redskins offense...
-Less adds during the game when your playing. Like "verizon red zone stats" when your trying to hurry up.
Also being able to disguise blitzes once again without being totally exposed if they read it.
Those are just some of my opinions, I feel 2k would have already had all this done. smh
2k wouldnt do this. They don't do this with NBA. So thats 1 thing.
2nd thing no one will do this as they want you to buy the NCAA games to import the draft class (Both 2k and Madden had this option)
The commentary sucks in that it reveals what you are going to do (these corners are going to meet the receivers at the line, when you go press for one thing.) but this really isn't a big deal outside of that. The commentary should be generic. It would be a better experience if it was updated and mroe realistic, but no one really does this as far as I know because what it takes isn't worth the benefit it provides
Playbook updates will be nice, but the pistol offense is a bit hard to recreate. Im hoping since they added cancelling playaction they will be able to make the pistol more realistic (maybe something as simple as when running one of said pistol plays press a button to keep the ball? Madden did a decent job with option plays in the Panters playbook. Im just guessing the redo the playbooks once a year rather than constantly.
Highlights in game are no big deal as it doesnt disrupt the hurry up from a game play standpoint (its not like more time runs off because of it.). Maybe if you're playing a competitive game with a friend I can understand it, but its really a minor problem in my honest opinion
The last one I dont agree with too much. The offense controls the ball, so they will obv have the advantage when that happens.
