  1. I know this is probably said every generation, but I am genuinely curious how they can possibly improve the graphics from the last set of consoles. It feels like it is, if not already, going to reach the point where they are marketing the fact that you can see water droplets on blades of grass in 12K fidelity.

    I think it would be cool if they added some sort of arcade mode in a future iteration similar to NFL Street or Blitz where you can mess around and have specials with really big tackles. I think NHL has “Threes” mode which is sort of a similar thing, so it would be cool to see Madden adapt that.
