10 Changes We Want To See In Madden NFL 15

Although Madden NFL 25 just released for the Xbox One and Playstation 4 (read Brian Parker’s impressions on the title here), we here at GoodGameBro are always looking ahead to the next version. While we’re still deep into our Connected Franchises, we thought it’d be a good idea to give you some of our most wanted requests for next year’s title – what will presumably be Madden NFL 15. Staff members Corey Andress and Brian Parker sat down and each gave their 5 biggest improvements that EA SPORTS could give fans for Madden NFL 15.

Our guess is that the team at Tiburon will be under a shortened development cycle due to the next generation versions not releasing until November, while next year’s game will most likely release in the normal end-of-August time slot. That won’t dampen our want for change however, as we present our list of Madden NFL 15 requests.

    1)Improving Living worlds
    Not only jerseys on the field but get the retired jerseys from each team out completely.

    Not only more false starts in Seattle or KC but if you audible (especially near the end zone) there should be a matrix algorithm running in the back ground that increases the probability of players running wrong routes and O Linemen running the wrong blocking assignments.

      technically, they could do that but… the NFL won’t allow it. it’s not all EA’s fault. they could have a simple online update determine penalties, crowd noise etc based on the real life stats pushed into those madden “living worlds” but, for example, the NFL doesn’t want a “dirty” team who draw a lot of flags to be reflected in Madden. They won’t allow Madden to show only a few fans scattered about the Jacksonville Jaguars stadium. The NFL prefers Madden to be a generic style cash cow. they don’t want complete simulation or too much realism. another example, they’ll never show injuries or cheap hits etc in Madden. Most gamers don’t realize that, even in Madden ’13, you can late hit someone out of bounds (and draw a flag/penalty) which is a clear example that EA is “able” to implement these types of things in the gameplay but each time it happens- it’s still generic and basically appears the same each time (same penalty, results etc)

        Ok, but take the false starts away and leave the rest of what i said. “There should be a matrix algorithm running in the back ground that increases the probability of visiting players running wrong routes and visiting O Linemen running the wrong blocking assignments.” This would not result in any penalties being given out but would make the game more realistic.

        • Army7

          Yes I agree- that would work if they revamp their entire gameplay engine. Maybe madden 15 will have that?

    Bring Back NFL 2K!

    • chris9465

      that was a great game can only dream what it could have been today…..

    • chris9465

      if 2K had a 2K6 to go up against the abomination of madden 06 who really believes madden would still exist?

  • El Brochacho

    MINI GAMES!!!!!!!!!!!! the perfect thing to play after a game…thta helped my run game soooo damn much and passing attack 2….plus its good for a quickie game

    • justin

      Totally agree with this!

  • Jon Russell

    good article man, I would be good with all of those recommendations. I dont really get why EA doesn’t hire more people like you. Donny Moore is HORRIBLE at determining player ratings, as a Bears fan, I can easily see how so many of the attributes hes given our team make me scratch my head from what I see on the field on sundays.

  • chris9465

    since there will be no more NCAA bring those guys over to build madden……i like the NCAA custom option of setting offense style ie hurry up or conservative by hitting the left bumper could custom defense style aggressive….. WRs on broken plays ie go deep or come back to the QB…………fire looman and his cast of idiots and let the guys that did NCAA build madden

    • Army7

      you are right- most broken plays on madden cause the robotic (poorly animated) WRs to perform some strange looking maneuvers. I get frustrated bc I play with cam newton’s panthers and like to roll out to the edges to make a deep throw down field…and I end up seeing some strange moves with players bumping into each other, running out of bounds, sliding around, looking in the wrong direction etc.

    • chris9465

      NCAA developers crush looman and his group of morons

    Excellent recommendations. It’s just sad that Madden franchise is the most lazy gaming franchise I have ever seen. They rely on the NFL monopoly they have and remove more useful features than they add. They take away player customization and basically make the game how they see fit. Prime example is you can’t watch or play non-user team games in a season or franchise anymore. Just stupid stuff they have removed for the sake of control and pissing off core gamers. I really want them to just play NBA 2K14 all day long and make an NFL version of that game. The player interaction, emotion, realism, COMMENTARY, game modes, etc are all to be admired. But it seems like EA sports and Madden just plays their own game over and over and bases changes on that. Sickening. I will give them one more shot being their first full year with next gen to make a great game with detailed commentary, useful in game stat overlays, and real life physics. If not I give up on this monopoly.

      NBA 2k series has the best game mode & franchise features out there!! Overall they’re killing Madden right now in my opinion

  • SIMCITY

    They need competition!!!

  • Army7

    you make some excellent points but I don’t agree with allowing the user to manipulate or “jostle” with WR’s. Imagine how annoying it would be playing some knucklehead online who figures out cheesy hold/push moves to defend your WR’s or just simply causing a penalty on every down because they are losing the game. player interactions on the field should be simulated using Ai and based on the players dynamic player ratings– which should be updated prior to each game based on the real life player stats/status.

  • justin

    Good article. I believe you’re missing one important feature. This can seriously put Madden backed on the map. A new & better sound track!! NBA 2k series has been kicking Madden’s tail music wise for the past several years…

  • Randy Young

    I wish they would add GM mode and also on owners and the new GM mode Stoping making me play every snap of every game…. Just cause I want to play coach mode and rebuild a team does not mean I want to kick and play def or off for that matter…. make a true coach mode let me call the plays and sub so on.. If i want to play every snap of every game there are plenty of ways to do that… but I never understood why when i play owner mode I have to play every down… it’s owner mode.. make it a toggle… and allow me to pick Off or def or both.. or NONE! so I can just play the role i want too….

    • chris9465

      the coach needs to have a more direct impact on players attributes……..look at the 49ers…..w/singletary compared to jim harbaugh…….4-11 one year next year under harbuagh they make the NFC championship game with the same roster……..the people who made NCAA need to make madden

  • Randy Young

    has anyone else come to hate Phil Sims since he started doing voice? man the errors kill me.. Thats the first first down in the game.. when you already have 12+ in … The same sayings over and over and over….. i hope they do something with that as well

    • chris9465

      phil sims and nance are not calling the same game am playing

  • Robert Severson

    PC Version — oh wait, thats right , EA hates the PC.

  • slipknot1283

    Madden 25 above all is the best madden to date.There of course could be some improvements by being able to change your drafted players names.i would also think in madden 15 uprading your player wouldnt require as many credits

  • Michael Bell

    Best wishlist I’ve seen thus far everything mentioned I’ve complained about for years one more thing would be to make playoff games important make important must win games feel the way they do during season an not feel so lifeless make division races tight and commentary address division races playoff races

  • Eazy56

    the most important thing they need in my opinion that i say every single time i play is a wayyyy better sountrack . they can’t just have trumpets and old football music playing all the time and then crazy train and thats it. they need more rap songs more crazy techno beats something to liven up the game and not make you want to turn down the tv because its giving you such a massive headache. 2k’s sountrack is unreal every song is magic, even NHL’s soundtrack is 100 times better. madden 15 needs a solid sountrack that everyone could enjoy and it’ll instantly be better in my eyes and hopefully a lot of other peoples eyes too..
