  • Special Teams May Never Get Sufficient Attention in Madden
    Posted January 12th, 2015 at 4:00 pm 33 Comments »
    For as long as I've been covering sports video games the neglect of special teams in the Madden series has been readily apparent. Such a huge part of the NFL goes without much of anything being done to represent the aspect of the game properly. Tinkering with kick meters has been about the only thing that has changed over the years.

Yet after starting the season with ratings being changed on a near daily basis there were only five updates that contained them between mid-November and the end of the year.
