Take Your Madden NFL 15 Trash Talk to the Next Level With a GIF-Making Tool

EA Sports launches "GIFERATOR," an online portal that lets users view and create GIFs for the recently released pro football game.

Want to take your Madden NFL 15 trash talking to the next level? EA Sports is making that easier for you. The company today launched an online portal that lets you create animated GIFs that celebrate great plays or poke fun at your opponents (or both).

All you need to do is visit the GIFERATOR website to get started. From there, you'll choose an NFL team, then a specific play, then a background for your GIF, and finally a message. There are pre-written options, or your can write your own message. But profanity is prohibited.

The GIFERATOR tool is very easy to use. I made the GIF you see in this post of New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski performing his trademark "Gronk Spike" in front of an American flag, because he seems like a pretty patriotic guy, don't you think?

Going forward, EA Sports says new plays will be added to the GIFERATOR throughout this year's NFL season, which begins tonight.

Madden NFL 15 launched last week for Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, and PlayStation 4. Though we've seen some hilarious glitches, we haven't seen sales numbers for the game yet. Historically, EA Sports releases first-week sales data the week after launch, which would be right around now.

Neat.  However, I wish that instead they would have spent the resources on letting us add our own custom sound clips,and have them play in-game during key events, such as TD's, sacks, interceptions, kickoffs, etc (just like the last NFL 2K game let us do).

They probably think this will be like advertising though.

They should add this to Cod as a $2.99 DLC feature and watch all the kids get it to make gifs of them tea bagging each others corpses in the game and with words you mad bro

First MS adds GIF support to the XB1. Now EA creates a GIFERATOR. Why are they reviving the GIF in 2014?
