New Football Games

#1vbarzeyPosted 4/22/2013 7:18:54 PM
I have not bought a football game in over 5-6 years. Looking forward to seeing some new players besides EA in this arena....especially the NFL games. Is the NFL license up from EA and are we going to get new football for the next gen consoles from other companies besides EA..?

They also lost quite a bit of money for everyone who bought their games to be refunded a portion of it (almost $20 for last gen Madden or NCAA, about $10 for this gen's).

I'm pretty sure they are also going to be required to allow another company to develop football games, or it will continue to be a monopoly.

I hope someone else is allowed to make NFL games. I got Madden 13 and was pretty satisfied at first with the "brand new physics engine". However, i started noticing things like my cornerbacks running out of bounds and glitching through the stadium on important plays, or when the a.i.'s running back got hit and then readjusted himself midair and ran a touchdown..

It's just tragic that NFL Football is the most popular sport but gets the worst representation in all of sports leagues represented in video games.
It's the popularity of the league and the exclusive deal that forces gamer's to buying a sub par game every year like clockwork regardless of quality.

Gamer's need to shame the NFL into allowing competition somehow some way.

People should really stop blaming EA and blame the NFL. They are the ones who gave EA an exclusive license.

Well the sad thing you don't need the license to make a football game but nobody will even try.
And if i'm not mistaken 2K could make college game now because EA lost or gave up those rights but they choose to not even try just like they won't try making a NHL game anymore even not needing an exclusive license for it.

At this point I would even settle for some good basic arcade options instead we get nothing but EA's garbage
