EA Sports has released a collection of screenshots from the upcoming NFL video game Madden 25.
Yup - looks like Madden.
Yep, it does. I've done some rocket science level research in cooperation with some British scientists and I can surely tell it's Madden. At least we think so.
wow,its intriguing how they manage to push out the exact same game year after year.
Here's the shocker... People will buy the same game, year after year.
I buy Madden, sure. I don't buy it every year. I wait three or four seasons before doing so. I figure that's enough time for a reasonable amount of changes to occur other than just team rosters.
Is this a PS3/360 title? Or a next-gen one? It looks PS3/360-esque.
Its indeed current gen
And this why I say healthy competition is needed. Just look at those pictures!! I see nothing better than the last Madden that was out! This is why competition is needed in the market to promote innovation. Can somebody tell me when their exclusivity contract with NFL is done?
You'd think with all of these comments that the NFL changed every single year. Peyton Manning looks like he did last year in real life, so does the Bronco jerseys. Football is football in real life and Madden won't reinvent itself 8 years into this cycle. Football is the hardest sport to replicate and to put it mildly, NBA 2K13 has it's fair share of problems. Some of the problems are worse than what Madden has. Basic player movement, and AI that reacts to the button press to name two.
When it comes to player AI in a sports game, I find that the MLB games do it best.
But the MLB games don't have to worry about putting resources into something like player contact, which is a resource hog. MLB AI have limited commands compared to the other sports games also.
NFL changes every single year. You must not watch any football. We are not talking about how the players look. We are talking about the uniforms, the blades of grass, the cut and paste stadiums, the presentation. Those pictures look almost identical to what was shown for Madden 11. Like I said before, if 2k was able to make a football game, oh I bet we would see plenty of changes (graphically at least) come into play. Matter of fact, you could actually look up the old Maddens when other devs were able to make football games and you could see where EA made it a point to better the look and feel of their game each year compared to this crap.
I watch plenty...2k has as many problems with their uniforms, stadiums, color palletes in the NBA2K series...so I dont buy the fact they'd be miles better than EA. There are as many problems in their basketball product to let me know their football effort wouldn't be so pristine like people think. By the way..NFL2K5 had a host of basic problems even for when it came out. Some of those same problems exist in NBA2K.
Your assumptions keep you from the evident point. People want a choice. Competition causes better games. When Madden had other devs trying their hand at football, EA took every measure to better the look and feel of the game. And that's what everybody keep missing here. No matter what, 2K was better. The gameplay was much better. The presentation was much better. And every game has their problems. The point is, EA has no competition so there is no way they are looking to go above and beyond the bar because they set them all by themselves. That's terrible. Let others try their hands...
Hope the exclusive nfl contract ends after this game and 2k comes out with Adrian Peterson as the cover athlete. Sporting the best physics. Tackling, maximum passing mechanics, etc next gen can offer. Tired of the same
i guess their waiting for E3 to show the next-gen madden, which is what im really interested in seeing. Will the game look as good as it did when EA showed the ignite engine and how many features will be included in the next-gen version
Bring back nfl gameday! Stop with this exclusive licensing bull.
NFL 2K, anybody?
Man I am just awestruck at how shitty this looks...it better be PS3/360 versions of madden and not next gen represented in these screen shoots.I personally have not bought a new madden since 2009 because of EA Sports shoveling out the same game every year just with changed rosters.
Update your nfl 2k5 rosters and play some real football..
