    Welp....I just lost all respect for Madden...sports games are awful.

    I already turned FIFA in for credit at Gamestop and now I'm thinking of doing the same for Madden.

    Sometimes the guys on defense go full idiot and and the RNG in these games are just ridiculous. Second to last game I played the guy got 2 interceptions 1 with his guy's back turned to the ball where it was over the shoulder. While my Saints guys literally just jumped and couldn't catch the ball 3 times.

    I'm calling the perfect plays and yet it's just crap.

    This last game I played. The guy was not getting anywhere so on 1 4th down play he went deep. My guy was right on him....but his guy caught it. Fine. Next time he had the ball...couldn't go anywhere again....went deep....and EVEN IN PREVENT DEFENSE WITH MY SECONDARY GIVING CUSION.....all he had to do was throw it up and the reciever caught it within the inch corner of the endzone.

    I get the ball....and it's 4th down with 4 or 5 yds to go.....he has set up for a punt return while I have set up in the I formation with a reciever to the right....WITH NO ONE ON HIM.

    Now anyone who watches football knows that 1. he should call a timeout and pick a new formation 2. my receiver to the right has a clear shot for like 20 yds.

    It was a run play that I did, so I audible to a straight shot down the field with the receiver.

    Guess what happens. One of his guys....catches up to my receiver and intercepts it.

    My receiver should have been all alone for like 15 yds....yet while the ball was in the air the defense guy caught up to him.

    This was clearly a case of the opponent not know football or the Madden game.....yet here he was up 10-7 only b/c of the video game part of it.

    So...I'll play one more game, and apologies to ppl I requested friends with for this game and FIFA but this is ridiculous. My record sucks anyway since usually when I don't put a set time aside for a friend vs friend game...I'm having to quit to do other stuff.

    But I will admit...out of my 8 losses....3 of them I've quit. But it wasn't b/c I was losing...but unless it's someone on my friends list where there just seems to be more fun in it....I'll quit if I'm getting $#@!ed by the game.

    It's just too frustrating.

    Madden can be crap like that. I actually quit buying madden after the 3rd year ps2 was out.

    I realized I was only paying for roster updates.

    Man, sports games have gotten so damn complicated that it's hard for me to enjoy them. The last Madden game I purchased was Madden '06 on PS2. The PS2 versions were a lot of fun. I won't even put a Madden game on my GameFly queue. It isn't worth it anymore.

    I agree philly, another reason I quit was guys started putting wide receivers at defensive end and spreading them out wide. They were in the backfield immediately.

    Everyone spent more time subbing mismatches like that. Total b.s. just wasn't fun anymore. Haven't played a down since.

    (FIFA) Yes the game isn't perfect, it has it's issues, but know that those issues are applied on everyone not just you, You just need to learn the problems with every game and try to avoid them. Think of yourself as a manager and that the players sometimes miss things up.

    Sucks that EA has that exclusive license for producing NFL games. I think 2K could produce a much better NFL game than EA. Like said above, Madden has become to overbearing and complicated.

    Sidenote: I hope one day College games make a return (Screw the NCAA!!)

    At least you figured that out early on. I've given my Madden-head friends $#@! about this for years.

    I'm a 2k football franchise fan. Even though the mode had it's flaws, I loved playing in first-person mode. It was just so fresh and different than the same ol', same ol' 3rd person view. It made the running game feel so much more realistic when you can see the holes in the line opening up from a field level perspective.

    Try adjusting the sliders to even out the game more.

    It's helped make the game better for me.

    Same here. All Madden + Sliders of your choice is the best challenge without heading online to potential cheesers/cheaters.
