No more f#$@'n gimmicks! I.E. Trendy Music as opposed to tradition, HFA, and "Impact" players. When i turned the game on for the first time and heard "love you more than toast" as oppsed to Rocky Top or Hail to the Victors, i was dumbfounded. Madden already has the market cornered on this one. what the f$#% kind of sense does that song make anyway?
HFA just plain sucks. At least dont make it a must for a ranked game. Totally unfair advantage for the home team. And finally, i know im not the only one that gets pissed when you call the perfect play on defense and some friggin cheezer scrambles with marcus vick(or vince) and flattens 3 defensive linemen and your best linebacker on his way to a 30 yd TD run on 4th and 15 to win the game in OT.
this one isnt a gimmick but why the hell do recievers HAVE to drop so many wide open passes against zone coverage? i only try legit routes on 1st and 2nd b/c of this. if it's 3rd or 4th i just spread guys out and pitch it deep for the now infamous "user catch". Hence the slang term "loser catch".
also, fair play works by preventing certain plays in certain situations by blacking out select plays. Now, if there is a play similar to HB Direct next year can EA simply not just black it out at our request? Why cant they just do that right now or create some sort of patch/download that helps out our defensive AI. That play really pisses me off!
