Thereís probably still confetti and BBQ sauce stuck to hidden places in Cowboys Stadium and weíre already turning our attention to the future of football. In video games.
Each February the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis provides hundreds of football players the opportunity to run, jump and lift their way into the NFL. This time of year also finds the EA Tiburon development team hard at work on Madden NFL 12 adding new features, adjusting what works and updating teams, players and other details youíll surely notice. As these two occasions line up, we get the opportunity to discuss the topic that drives heated Madden NFL conversations year round: player ratings.
We got a hold of Madden NFLís ratings czar/designer, Donny Moore, to get a peek at what heís looking for at this time of year when it comes to NFL players in general and rookies in particular. Not all college superstars translate to the NFL and even with updatable rosters, Moore wants the new game to get it right on the new players as soon as possible."
