Only good thing from the vid that I liked was the team select screen and menus looking a bit more slicker.

I'm glad they're adding in co-op for online, its going to be sweet! As for the achievements, I like the idea of it, it gives you a reason to keep playing and makes it more like an RPG feature. I'll probably just purchase the achievements though to get them right away

It will never be fun until they make it like NHL. Period.

It'll never be fun until they focus on what most of us want

Online scouting,great idea,but adding a coin system and making it unavailable for franchise hurts the potential.Same with co-op,great idea but adding attribute boosts hurts its' potential.

I thought they were providing some kind of rating system for each gamer based on how well they played in co-op mode.Something other gamers could view to see how skilled they or other gamers were at a controlling specific position groups.Like rating each gamers' skill for WRs,QBs,RBs,LBs,DLs and DBs by applying boosts to the gamers rating,not the NFL players in-game attributes.That would have compelled gamers to finish games too without causing distortions in NFL players in-game ratings,IMO.
This boost business is going to get really old really soon. People will stop playing as a cohesive team and they'll end up just trying to get their boost benchmarks so they can become "boost king." I don't have 3 madden friends. This means I'd be playing with strangers. I sure as hell don't want to be the RB and have my QB needing to get his 500 yards and 7 TDs or whatever it is.

Difference is when you go online with a shooter you don't pick pre determined rated shooters. Like picking a 90OVR shooting dude and making him better.

It's basically free for all everyone starts then as you perform you get better perks.

Wow... just wow. Could a development shop smear themselves any more? Levels have been reached to a point I never thought possible. It's almost hard to believe this is actually happening.

Some of you guys need to simply get off your high horse. They are trying to implement a feature that will encourage team play and work towards having FUN. What on earth is wrong with that?

I have about 8 friends that I know online and we will eat this up. If your goal in life is to get the best simulation of football, put the coke and chips down and lace up. Otherwise, get a freakin life, seriously.
 
# 11 Bgamer90 @ 06/15/10 08:15 PM
lol at Ian's lack of sincerity when he said ,"Thanks Carlos".

But yeah, not really a fan of these "boosts" (and definitely not a fan of the fact that people can buy them instantly).

Ah the good old get a life reply

Seriously, everyone here is for one reason and one reason only. To get the best NFL gaming experience true to real life NFL.

If this isn't it for them they are free to talk it down. If it's your sort of thing well good for you.

Can't believe how naive you are for someone who's been around on here so long.

You act like the people here at OS have any say in development. Yes, developers have asked what OS users would like in Madden, however WE ARE THE MINORITY of those who buy the game. This is a video game!!! If you do not like it, do not buy it! If you don't like the direction they are taking online, don't play online! Oh I know, it's the only NFL game...guess what, tough cookies! It is what it is! As for those who do not like when people say get a life, too bad! Stop your crying, you are not speaking directly to EA!!!

If you think you can do better then those who make the game, go to school for video game development, get a job where the "Suites" do not have a say in what you produce and get an NFL licence and make a football game. (sorry for the run on sentence) The complaining and moaning that occurs here is horrible, and it only gets worse when people think EA developers care what you pylons are saying!

I am so sick and tired of hearing we are the minority here at OS. We are not some special group of guys assembled here for the sake of Madden. We are all regular people that just happen to post on a message board for Madden. There's nothing different about us here than there is about the rest of the Madden community. So I wish everyone would knock it off with the OS is a minority stuff. We think Madden has sucked on next gen and guess what? A lot of other people "out there" thinks it sucks as well. Just look at the comments on any Madden vid or anything on youtube, IGN, kotaku,1up or any site that allows comments for their vids. You're gonna see the same things posted in those comments that you see here, so all this "OS is the minority" crap needs to go out of the window. Also, if you don't like people commenting and complaining on the game then I suggest you find another forum or start your own site called maddenworship.com or something. This is a forum where people talk about Madden. How dare someone actually say something negative about it. If you like the game, then fine...congratulations. As for the rest of us that don't just settle for whatever EA craps out, we want to see a better game. There's nothing wrong with trying to get that.....especially if you're in a Madden forum.

Exactly. That's what this forum is for. And it's not just Madden. ANY game has it's criticisms.

Yep, this place is much much more mild as far as the Madden bashing goes than other sites such as youtube, gamespot, ign, etc.. I would say that 75% of the posts here are constructive criticism of Madden and contribute meaningfully to the topic at hand.

Now back on topic. Team play doesn't really excite me one bit, neither does Madden Ultimate team whatsoever. I feel like it's a feature that's there and nice to have, but I don't think it's essential at all. It's like cruise control in the car, nice to have and I use it like twice a year, but I wouldn't miss it if it was gone and not essential by any means.

Btw, I LOL too at Ian's "Thanks Carlos" hahaha.
