Gifs. Some say it like jif while most agree its gif without the T. With the Internet still pretty big on the moving images, EA Sports has decided to capitalise on the craze with the "Madden GIFerator
," an image engine that will allow fans to create and share gifs until their heart is content.
Users of the GIFerator can choose from an assortment of premade GIFs from Madden NFL 15, with different sets for each of the 32 NFL teams. According to EA, the website will be updated with new GIFs in real time with each big play in NFL games over the course of the season.
Once they pick a particular player GIF — options include looping running animations for running backs and sack celebrations from defenders — users can set the image on a variety of backgrounds. The final piece is to add a few lines of trash-talking text to the GIF (profanity and other naughty words are forbidden, of course). Then, voilà! The GIFerator will generate an image that can serve as the perfect ammunition for fantasy football showdowns, real-life matchups and more.
Madden NFL 15 launched last week for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360. Got any gifs to share? Throw them down in the comments!
