I used to get so annoyed when in Madden a player got hurt in real life so in the video game you couldn't use him in the online mode. Pretty sure they changed that but how dumb is it that my fake player is injured because the real version got hurt? Lol.
I've never played Madden online so I had no idea they did this, and I agree it sounds incredibly stupid
They're trying to add realism to the game, but it's a video game. You should be able to use whoever you want.
I also hate how in the NCAA Football series you have to "discipline" players and assign so many "points" to that. I don't want my fake players having fake issues for me to deal with. I usually just re-set the week in dynasty mode every time a discipline issue comes up until it doesn't come up because I think it's ridiculous.
I also think certain other things included in games - yes, even HD - shouldn't exist. Injuries shouldn't even be there. Get rid of the durability rating. Also, GPA needs to go. There is no point to it at all except to be annoying.
