Too soon for this, I'm personally gonna need 3-4 months before I can answer this. Haven't seen much of anything but I do think nba live will shock the world.

I feel like NHL and FIFA impressed a mass majority of people on xbox360 and PS3. I feel like they will continue that trend and probably be the most successful on the next gen as well.

Really? NBA Live had competition on this current generation and was the underdog as well, but they completely failed not once, but twice! What makes you so optimistic that the trend won't continue to next gen?

I've seen so little real gameplay its hard to vote on something like this. Most of the "gameplay" that has been shown is slow-mo replays. I still need to see controller in hand, real-time recorded real gameplay before I can make any judgement.

I have the most hope but also concern about Madden.

I went with NBA Live based on what I have seen from Live, what I haven't seen with Madden, and due to me not being too familiar with the FIFA or UFC series/games (though I always seem to DL and have fun with FIFA demos).

Given that NBA Live hasn't released a title in what, 4 years - AND considering the debacles that were Elite 11 (I still play the demo for laughs ) and NBA Live 13, it looks like it's headed in the right direction. I think it could have sort of the same effect NCAA Football 14 had, where it's better than anticipated and it grabs people's attention. It's not gonna outdo 2k14 simply because of 2k's fanbase being established, but I do think it'll be a quality title.

I'll say Fifa based on the fact that out of the games listed for this pole, it has been the best this current gen and should carry over very well to next gen.

So many Madden fan boys on this forum...

Being that NBA Live has been completely revamped, I think its got the most to gain; however, like those above me have said, FIFA will carry over to the new engine best.

Put my vote in for FIFA. The game plays great already, it can only get better with this new engine.

FIFA appeals to a worldwide audience, and that seems to be the only game EA delivers on year in and year out.

I think the one that looks the most impressive was EASPORTS UFC. I mean they put alot of time into it and from what I saw it looked the most impressive.

I agree NBA Live 10 was EA's best effort. I'm sorry I don't have faith in a franchise which chooses to focus on b-ball fundamentals on a next gen iteration. At this point both developers should be closer to the realism than ever before. This is there second or maybe third time starting from the drawing board. The only thing EA has that I like is the synergy implentation, thats it. Sadly it used to be colors and high def sneakers but beyond that now.

Don't forget about the spacing. NBA Live always had better spacing and player-to-court sizes. I'm hoping the new Live is a huge leap in the correct direction. Hopefully they've had plenty of time with any of the new technology.

Impossible to answer this without even seeing live gameplay let alone actually playing it. I know we got that Madden practice mode stuff but im talking bout actual in game gameplay.
 
# 14 SageInfinite @ 07/15/13 07:55 PM
I chose Fifa based on the fact that it already is a pretty solid/good game. NBA Live has been pathetic as well as Madden this past generation. I'm hoping that changes.

nba live.....hoping this bady starts walking soon...lets say nov.
 
# 16 CaliDude916 @ 07/16/13 12:18 AM
UFC. However, I'm putting all my faith in NBA LIVE as I can't stand playing 2K any longer.
 
# 17 Scrmbld @ 07/17/13 06:06 AM
Madden looks good but I think UFC looks nice too. That has a lot of potential.
