Before SI get started with FM09, why not come onto these, their very own forums, and actually ASK US (the consumers) what we Actually want in the game?
With FM09 there is bound to be a whole host of new features (there was with '08) that, lets face it, nobody really wanted.
I'm sure before work begins on a new game SI have some sort of "Brain Storming" meeting (or whatever) where they bring up new ideas and suggestions for said new game.
So why not come on here before development begins and actually ask us which of the proposed "New Features" we would like to see in the game? (Who would have agreed with the face-gen feature over a better Ass-man, for example?)
It would certainly make sense to ask the consumer what they actually want to begin with.
I would especially like to hear from someone at SI what they think.
