thesportsguru11 on July 28, 2015 at 09:00 AM.Ark St. will be interesting. Obviously their two stars are in QB Knighten and RB Gordon, but the receiving corps is deep, and there are potential stars on that D. Good luck!

Mike7Vinas on July 27, 2015 at 09:00 PM.I'm doing an Arkansas State dynasty. I've been thinking for months but I finally decided.
hardly any. been mostly playing. and waiting for 2k16. think I'm going to do a spreadsheet for 2k16
are you updating anymore shots to your page
thesportsguru11 on July 27, 2015 at 03:46 PM.ULM is extremely appealing because that defense is just nasty for a Sun Belt school. The offense does need some work, but as long as you can hold them up for year 1, you can ride any success to the recruiting trail in year 2 to replace those stud defenders.
solmon on July 27, 2015 at 01:48 PM.Great overview! I'm pretty locked in to Western Michigan and Texas A&M as my dynasty teams this year, but you're making me think about an even greater challenge like ULM.

"Sounds to me like your expectations are FAR out of whack"
Sounds like you are satisfied with disappointing products

I like it. Mapping bounce pass to one button is a great idea. I remember the post a while ago where a fellow suggested mapping bounce and lob to y and b. Mike said he would take it into consideration. Good work unknown poster!!!

There would be no online football games. 2K online in basketball is the worst ever.
"If the current NBA and WWE 2K products are any indication it wouldn't meet our standards..."
Sounds to me like your expectations are FAR out of whack.
They can update APF 2K and just add in some type of franchise mode
I could see 2K making a College Football video game soon tbh even though they only have a few schools now it could be of whats to come for 2017 if they're able to attain the entire FBS and FCS licenses
2k just has to make a generic game with generic rosters, include playable NFL legends, allow plenty of customization, and make it fully featured. There's their profit. Not as hard as they're making it seem.
Remastering Pro Football 2k8 and adding customization would be a competitor. It's more of a wish of mine though. I am so sick of having one AAA football game available to purchase for console and really none available on PC.
That would be an interesting idea. I would assume that 2K at least still owns the rights to any games that they have published in the past so "remastering" a "classic" 2KNFL game with updated physics/graphics/overlays/etc. wouldn't be that far of a stretch. I'd imagine that would make at least some type of profit considering the demand for a competitor to EA
They should just bring back a remastered nfl2k5 with terrell Owens. Exact same game but from 2005.

Money..... 2K wants to make a profit. That is it. They stopped making football games because they made no money without the license. Their football games were better and still are. IMO BackBreaker never tried to seize the market. They wanted, IMO, EA or any other company to marvel at their physics based engine and come in and buy them out. It would have been easy for 2K to continue making all pro football, but the ultimate goal was to make money. The same goes with BackBreaker. No license.... No money.

Absolutely love it at Px1, the camaraderie and SIM game-play are the foundation of every league. League RedZone and player rankings are the icing on the cake. I don't play anywhere else.
With Madden getting better and better as the years go on. This is the site to be playing it on.
Majesty and PX1sports runs the most sim madden leagues that I have ever been involved in. Mike has a passion for top notch sim gaming and makes it a priority that other users enjoy their experience as well. This is just the beginning of px1sports gaming. Mike has truly made a next level sim gaming site so get over there and join the movement to next-level sim gaming.

Crazy, what it was customization was an option? And faces might harder for older teams. I'm just curious what folks think of that as an option as well. I do agree if they did it and could somehow pull it off where they had everything correct, it would be a no brainer purchase!
I'd absolutely buy it, if it had names and faces of players. After all, lots of Maddens have had "all-time teams" which were nothing more than random faces and numbers with random ratings. But if I was playing with entire accurate rosters, that would be awesome.
Thanks feedback. Jkra - I figured there would be several that had never heard of it. That's why I searched for pictures and the video. And I understand your need for actual names. I would be ok if they at least had an editor and allowed us to make corrections or changes as needed.
Debella, wow to having the game. I actually looked it up and found where I can order it. I might get a Retrocon and get this game. Looking it up brought back several memories.
Wow this article really brought me back I actually have this game it was a great game especially for that time if you go on eBay you can actually buy it there are some people selling them. i used love playing the 85 Bears versus 86 giants it was a defensive battle

i agree with Greg
add more legends and bring back timing Hitting interface
Better quality control. Last year there was no way to save custom cameras on day one and this year there was no way to save soundtrack changes. Plus, things like cutscenes with lefty batters swinging right-handed in the on deck circle and the left and right fielder positions switching sides on the post-game jump in the air bump cutscene. That just shows that testers are skipping over cutscenes and not checking menus. Basic stuff.

1. The option to change start times for games.
2. The option to have rain delays, midgame rain delays, and rainouts.
3. The option to manually reschedule rainouts as doubleheaders, not just the day/night type.
4. The option to move a franchise to a new city with new ballparks, with each preprogrammed city/stadium already having a set gps location for seasonal lighting.
5. The option to play in retired stadiums/parks from the past (any from last 60 years).
6. The option to play each game in REAL time, with appropriate length breaks between half innings and pitching changes.
Yea the create a anything feature in sports games use to be the highlight for me but the detail outside of players slowly declined to where it's not even in madden anymore on there. The last decent create a anything was team builder in ncaa and that game even had stadium restrictions

Na not bad. That just means more detail and attention can go into the game with less teams and stadiums to work on. A nice feature to have would be a "create a stadium" feature though, along with relocation in Franchise. This also means modes can get more attention as well. Plus, I really believe the CFL would heavily benefit from a game, and we could see expansion teams in the future.

I did a little research and found this out, (you guys can be the judge if it's good or bad I'm not really sure how I feel) there are only 9 teams with only 42 players (A CFL team may dress up to*42 playerscomprising*20*non-imports (essentially, Canadians), 19 imports (almost exclusively Americans), and 3 quarterbacks) and 4 stadiums. Is this good or bad?
2k doesn't have to start from scratch. It would be different if MS or Sony tried to develop a football game because they haven't optimized their engines for it and Sony would probably start from scratch using the MLB engine, which is no different than the PS2 days when both games shared the same engine. 2k said they've kept football concepts for their engine on the side regularly being updated. So I believe a 2k game would be ready to compete its first year in the market if they don't strip away features.
People would buy a CFL game, a lot of people. But the cost of developing the game from scratch might exceed the amount of money they would make; It would be a gamble. Someone mentioned possibly creating a CFL add-on feature to future Madden games but I think there are just too many little nuances within the CFL game that might make that very difficult. I'm not sure which would be the more cost effective route but somehow the CFL needs to get a video game out there on the market.

This is my point exactly. That Joe Montana tease had the sports gaming world in the palms of there hands. Then at E3 the devs spit in the hands we were all sitting in. I can't be mad at them for the route they are taking it's their choice. But in an earlier post $$$ was brought up, those guys just lost a lot of the money they were going to make. People were willing to buy JMF16 a generic football game why wouldn't they buy a licensed CFL game?
Yeah, I don't get why they were willing to do a generic game that only had a season mode insteas of a licensed CFL game with an untapped market. I don't know how they thought APF 2k8 was going to sell well. I don't feel sorry for them, but I'm hoping someone recognizes this opportunity other than EA because then the CFL will just be added to Madden in the same way women's teams were added to FIFA.
This is why I think Joe Montana football is a waste of time and why I don't feel sorry for 2k, microsoft, 3Do or any other one and I'll tell you why. these game companies are chasing a ghost. EA has the license, had it for 11 years now and will probably have it for longer. I would make a CFL game and sit back, I know someone somewhere will enjoy that game and bring in money. They are in the position they are in because they are stupid. 2k and all of these develop companies sat up there and released these stupid generic games that amounted to nothing to prove no point whatsoever. That's my 2cents.
I would try tweeting them regularly. Just not so much you get blocked lol
Aside from OS and commenting on madden videos online I wouldn't know how to get my ideas to them. But I'm sure the community people they go to gives them a lot more ideas than what is put in the game.
@balljonesjr cool, thanks man!
@pythons8 great point. I really do hope 2k sees making thw investment for a 2k game would work well. The CFL license can't be any where near the price of the NFl license. So they could pay for that while leaving a lot of funds for development. Especially since 2k is doing well these days across the board, and Take 2 is swimming in GTA 5 money.

It would take forever for 2k to make a quality game on par with the Madden series. Why not just submit all your ideas to EA to enhance that game and includes more leagues?
Pythons08 you make a good point. I enjoy playing madden and I think having another football game not with NFL logos and players would actually allow people to play both which could lead to the growth of football but I'm not sure if it would be globally.
