EA Sports posted a video of their "Heisman Mode" where you can play old Heisman trophy winners. The odd thing is that the mode allows you to trade the player and play people like Carson Palmer and Marcus Allen as UCLA Bruins!
Now I realize that EA Sports doesn't have alot of USC Trojan alumni among their constantly shrinking brain trust, but this mode single handedly has single-handedly killed the entire mantra of the NCAA Football franchise over the past years. For years, EA Sports has chanted "It's in the game"! "It's in the game!"
The company is constantly chanting about how they want the virtual reality to mirror the actual game play dynamics and they recently began incorporating more of the collegiate atmosphere and collegiate traditions in the actual video game programming.
But this video piece takes a giant dump on the traditions of college football by putting our most accomplished student athletes in jerseys which were never worn and never will wear.
At around 30 seconds into the promo piece, you will see Marcus Allen in his USC uniform followed by EA Sports putting Marcus Allen in a UCLA Bruin uniform and then a Cal uniform. Are you kidding me??? Are you seriously trying to promote this mode? What a fricking joke! Carson Palmer in a Owls uniform or a Texas Tech uniform? Desmond Howard playing for Ohio State?
Marcus Allen and Carson Palmer's Heisman sits in Heritage Hall for a reason EA SPORTS. Putting Marcus Allen in UCLA's uniform is like relabelling Madden NCAA Football 2013 with "ATARI".EA Sports just bought themselves several seasons of suspension from my video game cabinet.
