I don't know if EA is just lazy or they just don't have a long enough development cycle for the Madden series. Not saying players names or saying them wrong is a glaring error. ie. Phil Taylor from the Browns being called Ryan Taylor. Running back a punt to the opponents 40 yard line and then I get 1st and 10 from my own 20 yd line... mistakes like these are glaring and in my opinion unforgivable. You can't create a simulaion of football if you cannot get simple things right. I have been buying the Madden series since my beloved 2K had the NFL bought from under them. Maybe it because EA has no competition that they only make minor improvements and have major bugs. Maybe they are saving the big improvements and a better NFL game for when more than one developer is making an NFL game. All I know, is that every year I get a new roster, maybe some blades of grass on the field, some new tackling animations, and the same old commentary and new bugs and glitches. Hopefully when the exclusivity agreement runs out, the NFL allows more than one company to make an NFL game so we can get a game that we can all be proud of, whether it is a Madden game or a 2K series game. I am sure we all can agree that we just want the best game we can get for our $60.
