SportsNet Canada recently sat down with Sean Ramjagsingh, producer of NHL 14, to discuss this year's title in fourteen points.
Among the details and tidbits in the interview was Ramjagsingh's comments on the topic of fun vs. realism, "One thing hardcore (players) talk about when they play our game is that sticks go through sticks. In reality, sticks can’t go through sticks,” Ramjagsingh said. “Why don’t we make it so sticks don’t through? We tried that. In real life, if there was a stick in your way, you’d go around it, but we don’t have that fidelity right now with our controls. We can’t allow the sticks to contact each other—it makes for a non-fun game-play experience. So we bend the authenticity of the real world to allow for a better experience.”
