Madden Series

Some of you guys aren't from America, and since Football is an American sport, i don't know if Madden has come out in any other countries. But I know some of you played the games

What are your thoughts about the series? And, more specifically, Madden 10?

Personally, I thought it was great, although, it was hard to get used to the controls. The graphics were brilliant, especially on the PS3. I haven't finished it yet though.

This thread isn't confined to Madden '10, but the main focus is '10. You can discuss the other games as well.

I've been playing the Madden series since I think '95 and Madden '10 is definitely one of the best of the bunch. I do miss the all time/historical teams that they used to include in the games, but there are plenty of other nice features.

At the very least Madden '10 is above and beyond the other "next gen" offerings for the franchise.

I haven't bought a new edition of "Pay Full Price for a Roster Update Football" in quite a while.

lol

I can live with that, giving the shorter developmental time to get the game out every year. What really gets me is the bugs that they don't fix from year to year. The same well know bug shouldn't be present through three different games. To me, that's just crazy.

I used to get the game every year for the PC, but EA Sports has decided they don't like PC gamers. What really pissed me off is that they promised Madden 10 for the PC, completely rebuilt and upgraded, but then quietly recanted that statement shortly thereafter.

What are they going to do now that Madden's retired from sportscasting?


From MST3K's spoof of "Hercules Unchained"--heard as Roman medic soldiers carry off an unconscious Greek Hercules on a 1950's Army green canvas stretcher: "Hi, we're IX-I-I. Did somebody dial IX-I-I?"

The only Madden game I bought was for the Sega Genesis, and I've only played the newer Maddens a couple of times with friends who are diehard Madden fans.

Personally, I preferred the (early) NFL Blitz games for the N64. It was much more fun than the football sims (Madden). I haven't played the new Blitz games. Doubt I'd like them.

His name and likeness are still on the game and he still has a hand in development, but the play by play announcers are Chris Collinsworth...and I can't remember who the other guy is.
