Operation Sports - Press Row Podcast: Episode 24 (Part 1) - Making Sports Games

In Part 1 of Episode 24 of the Press Row Podcast, host Richard Grisham (@richgrisham) goes one-on-one with Madden and NCAA Gameplay Creative Director Rex Dickson all about the philosophy of this year’s American Football games. If you’re expecting a boring, ‘by the numbers’ marketing conversation, though, prepare to be surprised. Rex candidly discusses the entire process of making sports games, why the team makes the choices it does, and the challenges and risks behind every corner. It’s the first of three fascinating glimpses into the makers of EA Sports games.
