EA Sports and the NCAA are clearly taking the Ed O’Bannon v. NCAA case very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that Johnny Manziel looks nothing like himself in a demo for EA Sports’ NCAA Football 14. Last season’s Heisman winner more closely resembles a middle-aged man than the quarterback who led Texas A&M to an upset over Alabama, a Cotton Bowl win over Oklahoma and an 11-2 record. He appears to be an odd, animated doppelganger for Bill Paxton.
Perhaps the days of video game players mirroring their real-life counterparts have now fallen by the wayside for good.
