Hybrid Sports Games
Picture this- coming into the league as a rookie, you get hazed by your teammates and have to deal with the new NFL life. You buy cars, a house, troll for women, and go to clubs. You can do drugs, take HGH, steroids, etc. You can get caught in a drug test, get STD's, get a a girl pregnant, or get shot in a drive-by. This could be the first hybrid sports game, and Madden has started to go in this direction.
Now Madden would never stoop to this level, but a new game certainly could. It could be called "NFL: The Life" or something like that. Would that be as fun as "NBA: The Life" though? Would you have immense peer pressure to smoke pot if your player was on the Trailblazers?
The possibilities are endless- the only problem is, it would likely be impossible to get any of the leagues to endorse a game that may reflect badly on their reputation. But damn it would be fun!
On an ironic note. Jason Kidd (Nets PG) was one of the few players who outwardly opposed this games release because it was disrespectful to women and reflected poorly on the league... Ya know what also reflects poorly on the league and is disrespectful to women? WHEN HALL OF FAMERS BEAT THEIR WIVES!!!!!
-They should bring back RBI Baseball... same graphics, but for Gamecube or something and have all these options... imagine the little stumpy circle people hittin-off chicks and smokin dro. What a great game that would be.
The raging alcoholic option allows you to control the athlete 30 years into his retirement and sexually harass Suzy Kolber on national tv in a drunken stupor.
