Decline of Madden NFL

 

 

Cordova, TN; November 6, in the year of our Lord 2017--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is exploring what is going wrong with EA Sports and the Madden NFL franchise. This article has been coming for some years now. There are so many factors that go into the rise or decline of a franchise. You might even have some ideas of your own. The NFL itself has been in decline for a couple of years. Will they turn it around? Will the radical and highly divisive political correctness continue to destroy football as we Americans know it? I do not have answers to all of the questions I ask. I put them out there for public discussion and debate. Ultimately ya’ll decide which companies to support with your time and finances. When they attack your beliefs many of ya’ll leave them.

I did quite a bit of research and found (on VGChartz.com) that sales of Madden NFL 18 are down from sales of Madden NFL 17 on the PS4 and Xbox One. This is a year over year comparison of the same time ranges. Family Friendly Gaming has received multiple messages from gamers who are mad at the NFL and do not want us covering Madden NFL 18. The PR and Marketing for EA Sports failed Family Friendly Gaming again this year. We have still not released a review of this game, and we hear from many readers that if we don’t review it, they don’t buy it. So EA Sports has lost thousands of sales right there. The players in the NFL that are attacking the military, veterans, the flag, and our way of life have created massive negative backlash. Papa John’s Pizza has dropped their advertisements in the NFL. Millions of viewers are no longer watching the NFL because of the disrespect of the National Anthem. The NFL has become like Atlus USA or Sega – messing up no matter what they do.

There is something that few people want to talk about though. The game play in Madden NFL games is also on the decline. EA Sports is taking away options and modes to throw in some extremist storyline. According to EA Sports only half of the players who bought Madden NFL 18 actually tried Longshot. Who wins a game of Madden NFL 18 has more to do with EA Sports team rankings than anything else. Players are expected to login every single time they play the game. Or tell that login to go away. Difficulties can only be changed in certain spots and not within a game. If I am up 28-0 at half time I want to increase the difficulty setting. Madden NFL 18 does not allow it. The lack of competition in video game football has made EA Sports lazy. They stopped listening to families long ago. It is sad to see Madden NFL in such decline. The decline of the NFL is going to bring down Madden NFL as well.
