Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Ultimate team is gambling

First off let me start by saying that the madden team has not taken any steps to improve the gamelan or any mode outside of Madden Ultimate Team, the mode features buying packs in order to build a roster of players. You have to pay to play and includes extremely greedy gambling mechanics for impressionable minds. STAY AWAY!! Honestly it is a little disheartening to see that the rating for consumerism is as low as it is. It should be all the way up.

This title has:

Too much consumerism
