Question: If "you" don't want a game to be too much like the version before, but you do want a "new" sequel to a game you enjoyed ... Then where in these consecutive products does your determination of these things allow an actual Sequel to exist? Can a new game still be a "successful" SEQUEL and not just become ANOTHER GAME if it were to go in a completely different direction than its prequel?


I would figure a sequel would be highly influenced by and similar to the "original/previous" game to even be considered "a sequel." Right?

Why wouldn't a sequel benefit from reproducing and amplifying up many of the successful areas of its previous game's elements and accomplishments, therefore pushing those successful elements further than before? In other words, shouldn't a game resemble the earlier game, and build off those strengths?

There wasn't much in the review about an "awful story." The criticism was mostly about the irritating retreading through failed missions and having to go back through cutscenes. The character and story elements are what they are. Cringe-worthy dialogue doesn't necessarily mean "bad." It just means you might not have the stomach for the content.


Even if I were to ONLY look at Kevin's review ... it still looks like a fun, outlandish, action packed game. I don't see a problem with that.

So I'm guessing that the majority of people discussing "Madden vs NFL2K" haven't tried Madden 15 yet?


Every argument is valid, and well constructed in terms of constructive thesis. But, I don't really read many who have given this new iteration a play-through.


I'm NOT saying anyone with a 2K argument is wrong. Not at all. However, this game was reviewed fairly. And I honestly had a few hours with the game last night. I hadn't bought a Madden in the last 4 years. What occurred? I had FUN.


And it wasn't simply because this is the only version of football fun, it's because I actually had fun. I am also digging into the Ultimate Team mode, which is quite interesting for someone who has a appreciation for the historical lineage of the sport, and likes another layer of strategy.


All I'm saying, is I had fun. And for me, as bored as I have been over the old versions and of the tropes of modern gaming in general, that says a lot. I'd love to have a 2K choice in existence. But without that argument included, the straight word from my experience with M15 so far is one of sports gaming enjoyment. I think"7" or even "8" is spot on.

One person is an avid fan/enthusiast; the other likes the teams that have cool colors. It was extremely irritating to hear the trial editor who has no clue who the teams are or the players, throughout the whole vid?


I get they are trying to include a 'NFL novice' into the fold so that anyone feels like they can jump in and play, but holy crap!?!

Dark Souls was already one of the free games earlier this year. So they brought back a free game to give away again?

And yet, I'm still playing it and having a good time with it. Maybe it's just a decent game, and shouldn't be immediately compared to titles with 10x the budget? All I know is, I find myself during gaming sessions not wanting to turn it off.


Try just enjoying a game, for once ... and not criticizing and deconstructing it to death.

I'm really enjoying this game. There are so many clever allusions to Bakshi, Tolkein, Homer ... not to mention the tropes of all rpg's in recent decades. Having a blast. Can't wait to continue the game after work.

How many of you negatively slamming on this game have actually played it? Considering it came out 2 days ago ...


Excuse me if I chose to play the game myself. Reviews are a guide. I don't immediately believe and come to an evaluation simply based on everything I read (especially only 1 or 2 reviews). Several hours in ... Enjoying the game just fine, thanks.

@snossage @Dieknochenblume Except Ps3 had the then revolutionary Bluray installed and free online service.
