When it comes to my relationship with EA’s NHL series, I feel like I’ve been in a holding pattern with the series for multiple years at this point. I’m waiting for something that truly rekindles the joy I had when I originally played in the EASHL all the way back in NHL 09. I coasted on that happiness for years, and I would say in general my enjoyment of the series peaked with the series around NHL 14. At that point, NHL was the most played sports game in my library, but since that time it’s ended up being more of a secondary title for me in my personal rankings. I never generally hate the game or anything like that, but it’s also not something that sticks with me in the same way. I say all this to frame how I came into EA’s first presentation for NHL 23. I got to hear from the devs (no hands-on time as of yet) and see what their general philosophy is for this year, so let’s go through that here with this NHL 23 preview.

  1. Always forever hopeful for more improved offline play content but always cautiously optimistic hoping they change the play by play announcer.
    Anybody have problems with the pop ups on this site?
    11 ET would be 8 PT, yes.
    As for new announcers: Dude, be careful what you wish for. People were saying back in 14 that Thorne and Clement needed to go, despite the many years of material they already had to build on year to year. Some fans pointed out, correctly in my view, that you can't blame the talent for the script, and that throwing the baby out with the bath water would mean building a new commentary database from scratch, making it even more repetitious.
    Eventually, though, Rammer gave in, and we got...an even more repetitious **Doc Emmerick.** QED.
    Cybulski needs decaf, I agree. But if they keep swapping out the voice talent every four or five dev cycles, the commentary will ALWAYS suck.
    Like a broken record comes down to one thing for me. Will the computer shoot the puck from all parts of the ice or just keep going to the middle by the goalie which killed last years game for me.
