More of a rant, feel free to disregard.
I like playing the career modes, and I'm currently playing as a QB. For those unfamiliar, this means that you ONLY control your QB. Whats killing me is how absolutely moronic the AI is for the rest of my team. My runningback constantly ignores the wide open hole to cut around a D end and lose 4 yards. The rest of the offense never heard of a first down, and therefore never attempt to get one, not when there's an opportunity to run backwards, and god forbid if you tried to lecture them on clock management and the need to get out of bounds in the 2 minute offense. I've never seen anyone on my team break a tackle. In fact, it's more like as soon as they get hit, they fall straight down, and there is no momentum mechanic at all. And I guess they aren't allowed to juke, or participate in any other means to avoid getting tackled.
It all seems like little complaints, as the rest of the game isn't so bad, but when you are trying to do an immerse yourself in an experience, these little things really take me out of it and ruin it for me. NFL players seem to know where that first down marker is, even without that yellow line. How come my computer controller compadres can't figure it out?
Flame away.Not even stupid madden can ruin this morning when the Yanks sign Tanaka! Of course, that's an even more painful reminder of how I won't be playing an MLB game on my X1.
