Madden 16 screenshots lie about Marshawn Lynch dick-grabbing mechanic

I'm just here so I don't get fined

Madden 16 used the above photo for Marshawn Lynch in its running backs player rating reveal. He is, naturally, number one at 96 overall.

He cannot, however, grab his dick in defiance, as he is wont to do in real life.

Seriously, watch this.

Polygon asked EA Sports if the dick-grabbing celebration would make it into the game. Unfortunately, seems we got a real Aliens: Colonial Marines brewing here. "Sadly no," the  representative said. "One of our capture guys tweaked his arm placement for this shot, it's a variation of the celebration dive where the player puts his other hand behind his head."

Boooooooo. No wonder they call it the "no fun league" am I right folks?

This isn't the first time EA has tried to trick people with Madden. Last year, it pretended like the PS3 and 360 versions weren't outdated crap when, in fact, they were outdated, poorly running crap. The current gen versions were just okay, but the review was great, so read it.

Madden 16 won't be much any dramatic improvement. Last year's game is being used as a "solid core" around which EA can go back to a system of minute improvements. It doesn't help that, "Sales were up significantly last year," which means that the mild work of finally doing a full development cycle on the new consoles was enough of a refresher for most fans. Madden 15 sold over 6 million, falling behind only Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare in the US.

That 6 million is less than the series PS2-era heyday of 8-10 million sales per year, but better than the waning numbers in the last console generation. Maybe the "new console, what do I buy" crowd dies down this year and numbers dip again as fatigue sets in? Maybe it takes a couple more seasons of EA dogging it before people get fed up again.
