They had some great football games before EA purchased exclusivity rights to make NFL games.

So much this.

It would be amazing to see how advanced a No Mercy successor would be nowadays. SDvsRAW & the newest WWE series don't even hold a freakin' candle to how great No Mercy was.

More crazy things to do in matches would be appreciated as well, enough with this realism garbage. I play video games to do batshit stuff that they can't do in real life without serious reprecussions. I don't trust Yukes much, but I'll be okay with another HCTP or Day of Reckoning type of game. If it's another SDvsRAW type of game, I'm not even gonna bother wasting my time.

Unfortunately if their last fighting game (ready to rumble wii) was something to go by they might not just be as good as they used to be :(, i'd love to see a return to form though. I heard that style savy: trend setters (also developed by them) got pretty good reviews.
