  1. Game looks really smooth. Digging the footage. In general it looks nice, here's a few things I saw:
    - Super ugly missed tackle at 17:50 where the collision makes players bounce off the runner
    - A weird PI that wasn't called at 19:18
    - Cool screen shake/blur at 22:35 for the forced fumble and a nice replay/montage to follow it

    I think QJB edits the video for the screen shake/blur stuff.
    At 23:05 I believe, I love the animation of receiving the kick close to the sideline and the player recognizing that. It may have been in previous maddens but I haven't noticed.
    Player moves look a-lot smoother and less robotic. It's a video game so I expect to see some robotic type moves but last year was something else.
    And, Snoop Dogg chain is ICY!
    I'm always conflicted seeing these videos lol.
    Like do I watch and ruin my story or continue to anxiously wait for release date and watch no content.
    Seems like the stories can vary quite a bit now that you can play 3 different positions. Whereas the last two years it was literally the same outcome.

    Another video with NFL footage: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzMundVijRo.
    Not gonna lie. This is getting me psyched. This is what Madden does to me lol. 12 hours ago I was in the "na not buying this game" camp and skimming 3 videos (avoiding storylines) has me hooked.
    The menus are really snappy and they look nice. Very impressive how responsive they are in this video.

    Yea I like the new menus and the new color scheme with the scoreboard and the intros are great IMO.
    let's hope they don't patch che "pace" of the gameplay on the field. wathing the video where he plays as oklahoma vs florida i really like ho the players move and i love that the game feels slower..let's hope it stays this way
    The 'new' game intros are so... weird.
    I like using the in game assets on the backgrounds to simulate a SNF style presentation but after that I get pretty confused. It's a mish mash of previous animations of the teams entering the stadium, coaches over reacting (before the game even starts?), the starting line ups dancing on the field as fireworks go off and footage of the two teams playing an actual game (again, before the game even starts?). It's so bombastic and exaggerated, why couldn't they come up with something a little more subtle that also tells us more about the actual teams/players with stat overlays rather than an annoying clip-show that will be skippable after the first three times you see it.

    Agreed. It's just a matter of style preference I suppose, but I'm definitely in the camp that would rather see a broadcast-like presentation. There's glimpses here that are sort of like a broadcast, but for the most part the intro is just a reminder that this is a video game - not a simulation.

    I'm wondering if this is another QJB thing like the screen shakes. Dude is really good at editing and making everything seamless and i think that this is his intro to the game, not EA's. We'll see, but i wouldn't worry too much about it at this point. I don't remember anything like that being in the beta.
    I've watched 3 different videos and they were all drafted by the Bears! I hope that's a EA Game Changers edition of the game restriction.
    Idk.. I've decided to stop watching the videos all together. I just don't know how branching the story lines will be. Once I saw that last year's everyone basically had the same story, I had no desire to play it.
    Started a whole thread here and everything hahaha

    Some of the stuff, I'm expecting to be fixed with day one Patch. It is expected there are a lot of bugs and glitches before day one Patch. I seen three different versions and all 3 were drafted by Bears. I'm sure it's a bug that instead of "Sim pick team" it just selects Bears because they are alphabetically the first team. But, I hope there is logic to how it drafts your player and not just random. That's the one issue I had with sports games with single player modes with drafts is that your player getting drafted feels like it is just random. I get the best player approach, but there needs to be logic to it. If I do a Fotf, I might just force team. I already know I want to do a RB and know which teams need a RB.
    Looking at these videos, I hope next gen fixes some of the visual flaws. Most of the uniforms colors looked washed/faded. I'm glad they finally added a more in depth facial/body sculptor. But the faces looks so cartoonish compared to the NFL players and actors. I don't know why Madden just doesn't use Gameface. NCAA 14 used Gameface. Still feel that Live 18 had the best one I used.
    I will give this mode a try on next gen. But, I just feel that they don't have to keep trying to go down this interactive movie path. As much as they try, it still ends up essentially the same story for every user. They're still trying to chase MyCareer. What makes MyCareer so popular isn't the stories, its the online element of the Park/Pro-am. I still rather them take the PS2 Superstar mode approach.

    If you change to classic franchise do you lose the storylines?

    I haven't seen anyone make that choice. But I assume you lose the storylines. I assume that it'll be like how last year Face of Franchise was when you got to the league or how Player CFM was. So it seems like it will be either play condensed seasons with storylines or full scenes with no depth at all. But I do like to do a Player CFM as a Safety though.
