One of the selling points of many sports games today are the 'dynamic' rosters which are sometimes updated within an hour or less of real-to-life game action. These updates have promised to change how games play throughout the course of a real sports season.
But do these ratings go far enough? We are currently three weeks in to the NFL season and already teams are playing well above or under their ratings thus far. The Redskins have saw their season start disastrously with a 0-3 start. Ditto for Pittsburgh. The 49ers currently are 1-2, after two very disappointing losses at Seattle and Indianapolis.
On the other end of the coin, Kansas City and Miami are both 3-0. And the Bears? Yeah, 3-0 as well. All three of those teams are hardly amongst the highest rated within the game for sure.
There are reasons why these teams have the records they do, schedule strength IS important here after all, but so is how players are performing contrary to expectations. However, we are interested in how you feel about dynamic ratings not just in Madden, but in every sports game.
Do dynamic ratings do enough to deliver a more realistic experience to the game? Do you even care they exist? Sound off by voting in our poll to your right on the frontpage and above you in the forums!
