Default OT: Will EA Sports realize that Live is absolute garbage?

Honestly, I cannot stand to play more than 5 minutes of this game at a time. It's filled with frustrating bugs(such as computers don't make substitutions based on their f*cking stamina), the non-existent stealing ability(you must have to press 'x' 10,000 times before it attempts a pass interception...), the horrible computers that has Eric Snow shoot 34 FG attempts while Lebron shoots 8, and the horrid gameplay.

I don't want a f*cking 'superstar' mode where you can do awesome unrealistic dunks, I wanted to play a goddamn basketball game.

I got it for free and I think I'm going to throw it in the trash anyway.

Anyway, despite that mindless rant, does EA actually realize everyone thinks this product sucks? Any news that they will fire the whole Live department and bring in people that know what they are doing?

They just need to start from scratch...

I'm sure they know it sucks, but they market the hell out of it. They don't need to put the effort to improve the game if people keep buying it.

Its tough for me to play 2k because Im so used to live. Its the same with Madden, the 2K game just seems like a copy to me. I know this isnt the way it is, but I guess its just what youre used to.

The 2k games beat EA's by miles.
In 2k games, the flow of the game seems more realistic, people are getting realistic averages (not TJ Ford and other PG's putting up 35 a night, like in a season of Live i played), better shooting system, and overall, just a better game.

Did I mention that it realeses $20 cheaper than Live?

2KSports franchise sh!ts all over EA's Live. That goes for pretty much every sport they've released. Live is just hogwashed garbage, over and over every single year. They sell units because of the "Live" name. 2K exceeds expectations with every new release. And they actually listen to fan suggestions.

Considering NBA Live gets exponentially worse every single year, the answer is "No, EA Sports will not realize that Live is absolute garbage, and will continue to churn out an even buggier and unrealistic piece of flaming sh&t next year."

I predict that in Live 08, we'll get an UltrasuperstarMode so that now, Lebron James and company can do halfcourt flying tomahawk reverse windmill dunks through traffic

Definately worth it, the best Bball game ever, IMO.
For PS2, it's $20.

Just about everytime I do that, I get called for a reach. It is pretty annoying.
