Can EA change their 'evil' image?

    Pretty sure they are charging more for the games they make next gen.. like Battlefield 4 $5 more.. there were others I just forget.

    EA can't change.

    If they put out just one great Madden I will be happy. Thats really the only EA game I play much and for years every single version is missing something. They can never leave a good thing alone, theyre always tinkering with this and that and actually ruining what used to be a great game. These days it's really been "meh".

    I think if they make quality games again without charging people the price of 2 games in DLC, then yes people will accept EA.

    But it will be damn tough and I'm sure some people are through with EA forever.

    You know what really pisses me off about Madden, outside of it being a monopoly? Is that NCAA is SO much better.

    Get rid of the shitty trendy music. The classic NFL themes they have fit great.
    Get rid of all the obnoxious menu screens and the in your face advertising.
    Don't **** with season/dynasty, many think its the best part.
    Fix the damn draft if you don't import. Why am I draft 4.3 receivers or corners with an 88 speed?
    Use your quality control. Every damn year something stupid happens, like the New York Titans which happened for 2 years in a row. Raining every outdoor game or not being able to return punts at all.

    Until EA fixes that basic ****, they won't be out of the dog house.

    i love the ncaa games. madden has sucked for years. i miss the drills to improve my player, i miss the dynasty where you can control everything from the roster and coaches, to the cost of parking and food. i bought madden last year for the first time in like 4-5 years, it was just bad.

    I skipped last year, but will probably pick it up this year if they bring back franchise. I loved the mini camps and player drills. Adding a few points to a player where you want was great.

    I think the madden games have progressed well the last couple years. I did not like what they did to the season setup but it pushed me to play online a lot more. So I still find a very big drive to play that game.
