I am traveling to apologize aboriginal and foremost for the Cheap Madden NFL 18 Coins bluster that I am about to spew!
I apperceive that this is no abstruse and I apperceive that abounding of us are apparently in the aforementioned baiter here, but I absence accepting options if it came to NFL accountant video games.
I am the blazon of gamer that in actuality alone plays Football and GTA amateur lol, so it makes it abnormally harder for me to yield this connected face-lifting of the absolute authorization which stifles options, antagonism and progress.
Growing up we had abounding options in commendations to football amateur from Acrimony to ESPN NFL2K, NFL Quarterback Club, NFL Blitz, NFL Fever, NFL Gameday etc.
But a aggregate of the NFL and Madden's acquisitiveness put a cartel on the bazaar in 2006 and about chock-full all advance in the brand at that point.
Here we are 11 years afterwards and we are assuredly accepting a bold that is ALMOST as fleshed out as Acrimony 05'! (Minus playable combine/mini camp/pro bowl/All Acrimony Teams (Ecko team!) etc). Over the years we accept all accustomed that fate as we have no added options, glitches that accept been about for a decade are acceptable and not fixed, "new features" from a decade ago are accepting added and toted as "massive upgrades".
Any new antagonism arises and EA buys them out and shuts them down, acceptable examples of this are Backbreaker and Blitz the League, both altered amateur that didn't advance the NFL authorization but were still credible as antagonism and were shut down shortly afterwards accepting any ground.
I absence the canicule breadth I could play several altered football amateur depending aloft my gaming mood: Sim, Arcadey, Over-The-Top, etc. but achievement we are ashore with a shitty Acrimony artefact that afterwards 11 years of exclusivity alone has MUT(blatant micro-transaction greed) and bigger cartoon to accomplish it some how aloft to amateur from over a decade ago.
TL;DR: Acrimony sucks, we allegation the absolute authorization to go away.
I still breach out my old aboriginal XBox just so I can play NFL 2k5 due to the added aspects of the Authorization access (Scouting, practices, playcalling) I adulation the Acrimony alternation and I will apparently abide to accord EA my money year-in-year-out just because my adulation for football outweighs my annoyance over the abridgement of features. I alone accept that the "Ultimate Team" aspect of all EA Sports amateur was the affliction affair for the games.
But I do anticipate that EA has been on the appropriate clue over the accomplished few iterations of the Acrimony games.
