I saw a thread on reddit of all the features that Madden has either removed or are broken and its still a crazy amount of stuff. For me the switch from xbox to xbox 360 saw a ton of features get dumped and it started killing my interest. I would never buy a sports game again unless it is bargain bin prices.

I would rather it be a standalone that goes as deep into the management aspect as possible, like Football Manager or OOTP Baseball.

Front Office Football. It's been a series forever. EA even picked it up at one point to give it an official NFL license. I have FOF7, but there's an 8 out. It's damn good. I used to combine it with the college one by the same company for some epic football simming.

Yeah kind of like that, except with significantly better production values and the NFL/NCAA licenses.

The only way to get NFL licensing is if EA does one.

Which is why I said to bring back NFL Head Coach, an EA title

Considering they won't even improve Franchise mode and I don't think that series did very well I think its a pipe dream. We don't even get the Street games anymore which did better than Head Coach. It makes no sense that they didn't incorporate the cool shit Head Coach did into Madden. It's pure bullshit and it's why I don't buy these games at launch. The thing is, it's doesn't matter. Madden Ultimate Team makes them obscene amounts of money and they will continue to put very little effort into these games as long as MUT keep raking in the cash.

EA is completely done innovating since they went full on with their subscription service.

Madden peaked on Gamecube for me, it's been that long since I enjoyed a franchise mode

The only EA games worth playing at this point are FIFA and good lord willing, NCAA when it finally comes back.

I haven't played Madden in like 10+ years, they've really just made it a game for online play and not for us nerds who actually want to pretend we're running a franchise.

I still fire up an NHL franchise from time to time too. Obviously you are all correct we badly need NCAA.

Speaking of sports games, I tried PGA 2K21 and it is insane how difficult they made that game. Once you get to the pro difficulty level I'm not sure I can remember a less "pick up and play" sports game.

I played a recent Fifa and was bored within an hour. Ive enjoyed previous versions but just didn't enjoy the latest two versions.

EA Pass is now part of Xbox game pass so a lot more free games but I don't think they include the premiere sports games like madden

As someone who owned EA Pass I really just used it to pick up Battlefront 2 and use the 10 hour trials of games. It just seemed like it took Sports games too long to be available free, I ended up buying Madden for 30 bucks a few months after it launched.

XBOX series X on November 10th. PS5 announcing later today it seems and likely getting released November 17th though they might push that up and drop Nov 9th haha. Looks like both will cost 499 usd. Not bad.

This came all of a sudden. I wasn't quite prepared. I might just go with the 3070 in October. Definitely not dropping $1500 on the 3090. Might just continue to wait since I'm mosty just playing CRPGs lately, anyway.

3090 has to be some industry thing because no normal person should be buying it for gaming

3070 is definitely in a great spot and is probably all anyone would ever need for 1080p even with Ray Tracing or just for anyone who didn't have a GTX 1080+ card

The 3090 is overkill and nobody needs that. It is far ahead of what the consoles can do and no PC games need that much VRAM yet. I'll be grabbing a 3070 early next year/late this year (if possible), but I'm not a huge graphics guy so I don't need the fidelity/performance of the 3080. It should be able to handle 1440p gaming without issue for years.

I really haven't checked out all the benchmarks. I'll probably wait until the 3070 drops to make a call. Might get the rest of a new system prepped in the meantime. I've been sitting on a 780 waiting for the 3080 series to drop for a damn long time. Honestly don't have any problems with my current system at all, but would like the ability to power a VR headset and making better use out of my 2k 144hz monitor might be sweet.
