Ex: "Apparently good old fashioned TV is becoming the popular vehicle for video game debuts, and tonight it all happens around the NFL Draft."
It seems like Backbreaker is getting the kind of TV exposure that Madden SHOULD be getting..
I'm looking forward to Backbreaker, love what I've seen so far. Madden hasn't sparked my interest for a bit. Hopefully the competition will make it better.
I got to speak to their Associate producer for a couple hours on Tuesday, and the passion for their game just dripped from his voice. I realize it's technically his job to get the press excited, but it went beyond that. I really got the impression they've created something special, despite the lack of NFL license.
Madden, been the same since 2006. Backbreaker: New IP, built solely on a new physics engine (euphoria), and looks like an NFL blitz but even more fun with some realism. Well, im in.
i did not even think about Madden 11. before/after watching their trailer for Madden 11. Madden 11 loooks like a step in the wrong direction. I hope i get use to the new camera angle in Backbreaker.... Backbreakers looks like a winner in 2010....
american rugby not football
Backbreaker wins hands down. Its been so incredibly satisfying following this game for 3 years. I've watched the public opinion of this game go from laughable in the beginning, to considerate, to full on fanboys. Even the thickest of madden-heads are starting to see the freshness BB is going to deliver. Its so apparent when you compare those two trailers.
Backbreaker will be a fresh departure from the traditional and somewhat stale Madden formula. Maybe it will inspire the Madden team (Tiburon still?) to actually make some worthwhile changes in that formula and make a truly great football game. As it is, Madden is stagnant. Look at what competition did for the NHL and FIFA franchises. They have become sports benchmarks...whereas Madden has become the..."let's hope that they add...or I wish they would have kept or done..." franchise.
