10. “Muddy Playing Field” in Madden 08
Some of the greatest games in NFL history were played in terrible field conditions. In Madden 08 when you played in a game in rain or snow by the end of the game the jerseys and pants would be muddy and players would be slipping all over the place. This was super cool but it never carried over into the new maddens. It would be a feature that with the realism of the next gen consoles this would be absolutely unreal. Madden 16 needs to add this feature because although the weather is decently well done in madden 15 there could be much improvement to make those cold wet conditions that much more realistic.
9. “Controllable Touchdown Celebrations” in Madden 08
Touchdown celebrations are a huge part of the NFL in this day and age. There is the Gronk Spike the Graham goal post slam and all of these are closely connected to our favourite players. Now for all of the other players it would be nice to have a say in what celebration you want to use. Maybe have a option like 2K My Park where you can choose from celebrations to use when you score! Have one for each button and then give you the choice once you score. Its small things like this that make the game just that much better and there is nothing better than taunting a friend or a online opponent after you get a big score! Madden 16 should bring this back its a small feature but its the small details that add polish to a game.
8. “Adaptive Difficulty” in Madden 09
This is one of the coolest features that Madden has ever had and that really needs to be brought back. This may not be crucial for the gamers who have been playing for a long time but for the new gamers this is great. It is hard to find a difficulty that is just right for you but with this feature the CPU would adapt depending on your skill as the game goes on. There is nothing worse than playing on a difficulty that is way to easy or one that is way to difficult. This is why adaptive difficulty is such a cool feature and really allows you to have good games with the CPU! Madden 16 should bring back this feature as it would be huge for the non online players!
7. “Team Newspapers” in Madden 05
This was a small feature but it was also super satisfying to see your created player or the star of your franchise on the front page of the newspaper. They had the “ San Francisco Chronicle” the “Boston Globe” and many other city newspapers for you to be on the front page of. It would be pretty easy to get this back in the game and we feel like it would be quite popular in Madden 16. It could be way more interactive with the ability to flip pages and click to read more on the topics. Hopefully Madden 16 decides to bring back this small feature which would be a great edition to CFM modes.
6. “ Assemble A Coaching Staff” in Madden 05
5. Cheerleaders in Madden 05
4. “Create A Superbowl Ring” in Madden 08
3. “ Create a Team” in Madden 12
2. “Be A Superstar Mode” in Madden 07
1. Team Play in Madden 25
I don’t understand at all why they decided to take Team Play out of the game completely. I get it was not the most popular mode in the game but everyone i know who played it loved it. It was a chance to play with your best online friends and each of you could play the position they are strongest at. It also had a competitive leaderboard that you could climb with your community. This needs to return in Madden 16 and we will be absolutely ecstatic if it does!
