That's it. I'm over it. I can't take this game anymore. I don't understand why EA can't seem to make a half decent football game now. Madden 20 may be the most broken game in the entire series, and that's REALLY saying something. All Pro is beyond easy and All Madden is literally cheating. I play with a good team and CPU QBs can't miss, CPU WRs can drop the ball, CPU DL can't be blocked, CPU DBs can't be beaten deep (or at all hardly), and it's the opposite for your players. An 80 vs 80 overall match up plays like a 90 vs 70 match up in favor of the CPU. My 91 OVR DL will get whipped by a 67 OVR OL and can't get off a block, but my 80 OVR OL gets thrown to the ground by a 90 OVR DL 3 plays in a row. This game is so bad that it's literally infuriating. The game isn't even enjoyable anymore. I can't want to EA to lose the sole licensing on am NFL game. I will go straight to any other NFL game when someone else makes one. Does anyone else feel this way???

    What game mode are you playing exactly? You mentioned All-Madden so I'm assuming you're playing a Franchise. Do you use the custom sliders at all to make slight adjustments to certain areas like blocking where you think they need to be buffed a bit?
  • The exclusivity has destroyed football video games forever!!!! The sliders do not help! Simply put, what happened to making a solid football game which represents real football? I am not confident EA will make a good Madden on PS5!
  • @EA_Blueberry

    Yes I am playing franchise mode. I've done slides before but it doesn't quite seem to fix the problem. Plus, I feel like I'm the one cheating the game when I do that. I don't think a game should be so poorly made that they leave it up to the players to fix it

  • Not only is the game bad gameplay wise but its just so damn boring. Im a franchise player, I dont touch MUT or QB1 modes, and there is just nothing to do. Even the things they added are flawed. X Factor was a huge disappointment IMO. Defensively its super OP; X Factor D End gets 5 sacks a game and LBs/Safety's force way too many fumbles. I actually turn the X Factors off and let the players play. Then this "Scenario Engine" is so lame. Incredibly bland and adds nothing to the game. Mentor for a week? Upset player that leads to nothing? There is just no substance to it. Maybe if someone is really upset about play time or contract they request a trade. There is nothing in this game.
  • I would like to see more TV Style Presentation! Refer to 2k5! The whole NFL experience from pre game show to real halftime highlights. The gameplay is the most important aspect. Make Barry Sanders where he is almost untouchable, make Moss where his Vertical ability is Legendary! Put in voice commands with real strategy significants! Put Classic Teams with ALL THE PAST PLAYERS. Pay them! Add several announcers. Make the AI extremely hard not cheesy! True halftime adjustments. Allow classic teams online play, etc....
  • I wish Madden would just scrap the entire game except graphics and player models, copy all features, modes, and presentations from 2k5... Upload the gameplay from Madden 12, and just do that every year lol
  • My biggest concern is how the game cheats! I just deleted a franchise with my AllTime Rosters All-Madden and I was 6-1 before I started playing tonight! This game had all the goofy animations occur during each game payed tonight! Each game was very close but the cpu ability to blitz way too fast and the stupid AI never adjust correctly. Scrap this garbage! 11 games in it cheated so bad I deleted the ❤️❤️❤️❤️! I am sick and tired of the same garbage! No innovations, No real gameplay enhancement that truly matters. The Superstar Xfactors are a joke!
  • The game has no personality numerous of NFL players voiced their opinions on poor gameplay let along here in the forums the community has expressed issue with the game as a gamer I have a problem with the progress of the franchise Madden isn't coverings all aspects of it's video game while mut and the other arcade mode dominate the non buy-in modes are suffering the lack of football logic leaves holes in other areas of the game as well hopefully on the new series of consoles we see the best verses of simulation football

    (How excited are you on the possibility of a NCAA football game returning?)
  • Outside of franchise missing so many keys aspect of running a franchise like DC and OCs, the gameplay is awful. Just got done playing the Jets and Jamal Adams had 5 forced fumbles, and it’s happened to before as well he’s way overpowered. I had my first returned FG and EA counts it as a fumble recovery... I feel bad for the people that work on this forum I really do because I couldn’t imagine defending this game and justifying EA being the sole company to have a licensed NFL game. It’s a bad product and IMO has been for 3-4 years running now. Downhill since MUT. At what point do you listen to your customers??

    Dude I'm beyond excited for that possibility. My friends and I wasted countless hours on NCAA 14. That game is still more in-depth than Madden 20

    Exactly. I had that same problem with Jamal Adams. Christian McCaffrey couldn't stop fumbling and he's a 99 overall
  • It sucks because NCAA football will probably have MUT and will have all the same issues. Its the same company that would make it lol

    Don’t shoot me but I’m a Pats fan and I was using James White and to my knowledge he has fumbled ONCE his entire career yet in ONE game he fumbled 3 times and all of these game of passes up the middle which would probably be ruled incomplete but Madden isn’t that complex because these animations are scripted almost. It’s gonna be hard to not buy Madden 21 considering I’m a huge NFL fan but if they don’t announce significant changes to franchise and gameplay I just won’t do it. A roster update is not worth 60 dollars.

    And the online players who run around holding the triangle to get user lurk picks get mad when you call them out on it for having no skill...lol
  • EA took out online H2H compare stats in '19, never announced they were doing it, people complained, and they never put it back in. In '20, they still kept it out, even knowing it was an issue in '19. They still haven't fixed in in '19 or '20 even after saying they would. So IS IT GOING TO BE A PART OF '21 OR NOT?! And we also want change jerseys, weather, penalties, injuries, and challenging plays back in too! All the stuff that used to be there in online H2H up until '19 but they removed.
  • As soon a another company comes out with a💪🏿 game, I'm hopping ship so quick 😅
    It doesn't even have to be simulation honestly
