NCAA Football Is All About Gimmicks

Brian Cook:

In a nutshell, this is why I quit buying NCAA a few years ago. Instead of making an edition of the game in which receivers catch a realistic number of balls instead of dropping half of them or making a 50-yard pass actually difficult to complete, EA has spent the last decade working on stupid gimmicks and letting their franchise stagnate on a treadmill. Damn you, exclusive licensing.

Well said. I haven’t spent much time with the game yet, but I feel the same way. I know the gimmicks are what sells the game to the masses, but every year I hope for a bigger improvement in gameplay and it never seems to happen.
