EA Sports College Football Wishlist: All the Features We Want to See in This Year’s Game

    Which items do you want to see in this year's version of EA Sports College Football 25? The top wishlist items from us at CFN include some realistic new offerings.

    EA Sports College Football 25 is set to release this summer and after a decade-long hiatus, fans are clamoring for some much-needed improvement from the last iteration. As much of a following as NCAA 14 has built, the last version of the college football video game series left fans wanting more.

    With the team at EA Sports building this version from the ground up, college football video game lifers have a few ideas in store for what they want to see in EA Sports College Football 25.

    PC Mode Tops EA Sports College Football 25 Wishlist

    The wishlist starts and begins with one thing, though, for serious college football gamers: A college football game to play. Now that we’ve got that out of the way and that’s coming this summer, fans have gotten into the nitty gritty about what they want in this year’s game.

    Putting the game on a PC certainly topped that list early on and was answered as part of the offerings from EA Sports.

    With PC as an option to play, in addition to PlayStation and Xbox, the remaining wishlist items started to fill themselves out. In no particular order, here is the official wishlist from us at College Football Network.
