Madden NFL 15 is a great game, really one of the best that EA Tiburon has produced in a long, long time. It’s not perfect though. Sometimes, the passing game feels like it trades away too much accessibility in the name of realism. Other times, ball carriers trip up around seemingly impossible physics.
And still other times, Cleveland Browns rookie linebacker Christian Kirksey shrinks down from his 6-foot-plus stature into a foot-high micro-player.
Why is this so funny? Tiny things often are, especially when their extreme diminutiveness is highlighted by the normal-sized world that surrounds them. In this case, a professional NFL player that’s no taller than an actual football gives his full effort in a game populated by comparative giants. It doesn’t get much more perfect than this.
