Thank god someone else is making football games again. Don’t get me wrong, I love me a good ole fashioned Madden showdown but playing basically the same game year after year gets old. Especially when that game is fucking BROKEN half the time.
Everyone that has played NBA 2K and NBA Live knows that 2K is like, a zillion times better. It has more consistent mechanics, it looks better, and it actually takes more skill than luck. That’s why EA no longer makes NBA games; they realized they can’t do it better than 2K. And for years they’ve owned the exclusive rights to make NFL simulation titles, which has kept 2K from beating them out of that market as well. Unfortunately for everyone else though, that has allowed EA to basically do NOTHING to innovate the game year after year, as this video shows:
If you didn’t watch all 33 minutes of that video, I don’t blame you. It’s long as shit. But it proves my point: Madden 20 is mechanically the same if not inferior than All-Pro Football 2K8, which came out in 2007.
So while 2K will technically be making non-simulation NFL games, we should all still be thrilled at this news especially since 2K will be allowed to use NFL licenses. Could we see NFL Blitz brought back and modernized? What about NFL Street? Or something completely new?
What would you like to see 2K make? Do you want them to bring something back? Have an idea for a new football game? I’d love to hear your ideas. (not you Brandon Walker we all know you just want Tecmo Bowl Remastered or some shit like that)
PS - Madden, NFL2K, Techmo...nothing will stop certain co-workers who struggle on the sticks from getting SKUNKED:
