I'm no a big sports game guy but this NEEDS to happen for the sake of all the sports game lovers out there.

Oh right so 2K could make buggy NFL games like they do with MLB games?

How about taking the licenses back and make the developers compete for them. The best game that year wins. Instead of having a White Mike Singletary roaming the sidelines(no joke EA can't even get Race correct) like a few years back the Developers would be forced to think in advance for once.

Every year it's a brand new competition. Once you've got the bulk you can edit the players to their collective teams and just concentrate on Graphics and controls. Have special divisions just for signature moves just like the ECW, WWE, NCW titles characters do. Sack Brees 5 yards deep in the backfield then you can can perform your own special Sack Dance. Hit a Home Run off Halladay you can point in his direction and give him the no no finger waggle as you head to first.

MLB2K9 took out the manager and Pitcher ejections. Put em back in that's what makes the game interesting. Does your Manager tick off the Ump or does your Pitcher get ejected in the 3rd cause he's having a bad day and takes it out on the Hitter?

This 4 to 5 year and beyond licensing allows the Developers to just sit back collect the money and not do much of anything new to the title. I was pretty peeved about one of the Madden games on 360 having a 40 time trial where you have to use the thumbsticks to run. That's such a pain in the butt. I got rid of that one and haven't gotten any since. MLB 2K9 was so buggy, that the fielders from Home Plate to CF would just do stupid shiz. Run around in a circle when you're pushing the correct direction, you want to dive toward the OF the Infielders jump up instead, missing the ball so badly it allows a single to turn into a Triple(though that does sometimes happen) in shallow territory.

Competition is what Sports are all about. In the developers world, not so much. We're long since past Tecmo Bowl.

By the time it hit 12, there were at least 150 people and probably more. The happiness was short-lived, though, because after 2-3 games with my brother and two friends, I went to sleep. Game blew...nothing at all like the demo, which played hot. Unrealistic shooting, crappy My Player, horrendous online servers, just a bad bad bad game. Almost 2K5/2K9 bad...

It was good online the very first day, though...you could actually play D and I won my first game 29-25 with Mike Conley scoring 7 points as my leader.
dude.....
2k11 is more realistic than 2k10 and anything prior and also better than ANY NBA live so i'm not sure how it sucks

2k for the dreamcast with Randy Moss on the cover is the best NFL game IMO. I remember playing multiplayer over dial up. Fun times.

Good Luck, the NFL license it property of the NFL. The NFL chose to sell EA the license. This is a right they have as owners of the license. Does it suck that it is this way? YES. Does it change the fact? No!
Anyone is allowed to make a football game, so there is no monopoly in place.

This is like if someone owned M&Ms and sold the license to Mars, then someone sued Mars cause they wanted Hersheys to make them instead. You arent going to get very far with that type of suit, Hersheys still has the right to make candy coated chocolates. Just like 2k has the right to make a football game, it just cant be an NFL game.

If it goes in favor of the class-action, EA will merely call for an appeal. And worst case for EA is that the NFL will re-auction off the title, and EA will easily win it again.

Thats right I compared Madden to M&Ms

@KaiserDragon... Didn't someone sue the NFL over the Super Bowl? Actually a lot of someones' sued the League over it. This is no different really.

First doesn't EA just own the right to officially licensed NFL games? Like blitz can come out with fake teams and stuff. Plus isnt the NFL a monopoly anyways?
