    I think I'm going to record me breaking my copy of Madden..

    Office Space style.

    B/c, among other things, according to EA...Drew Brees is unable to throw a football 7 yards while running. Even when theres no one near the receiver for a good 15 yds.

    It'll make me feel better.

    no one is allowed to run and throw in that game (on anything at All Pro and above).

    They made enough things for me as a football geek to purchase the PS4 version as well. But they need HUGE jumps for this year's version.

    Just last night I was doing a Solo Challenge thing...and was winning against a team 7-0. The other team got to about the 35 yd line with like 15 seconds left....

    Rodgers threw the ball up for a hail mary. I had 2 guys close to the receiver...but...and this was a breaking point....my defender that would have been able to get in front of the receiver and knock it down...stopped about 2 yds away while the ball was still in the air.

    They scored and I turned of the PS4 and went to bed.

    I miss the 2K football games.

    2K had the best football games. But after they started getting better reviews then Madden EA bought the NFL rights. This after saying they would "welcome any competition." Yeah right, EA.

    I dont even care if it's not NFL license. HEck I wouldnt even care if it didnt have PES style deep customisation (thoguh I would hope you could edit at least to waht we have now).

    As long as it was a good 2k style game.

    Right now, I'm too much of a sports/football fan to pass up Madden. And tbh, if you're a sports gamer like me, it's not a bad game.

    It is however, full of missed opportunities.

    Definitely worthy of criticism, but not to the point where its' a "terrible game". It's bascially one of the more modern gaming tropes of wanting to knock it cos it's the "Cool" thing to do.

    I totally agree. I still buy Madden for the same reasons as you and despite its flaws I still enjoy it.

    Well, I just don't like sports video games....more over Football.

    Mainly b/c theres to much RNG involved in everything. I mean, you have 10 guys on defense that are controlled by the computer and unlike some other sports...any one of those guys can be involved in the play and play a big part.

    Then fumbles really irritate me. I mean...it's a video game where my wits and skill are going against someone elses. I hate the fact that the computer can decide if I fumble and then lose. Real life is different...a computer is "just deciding" if a guy fumbles.

    So, I haven't bought a Madden game in a long long while. This is fun...but theres so many irritating dumb things in this game....it's not about being cool...it's about football being compromised due to it being a video game....where the devs dropped the ball.

    Thanking myself I didn't buy Madden this year lol. Will definitely buckle this year though. Also, agree with everyone above 2k made the best football game. I still play the occasional game on my phat ps2.

    I was about to recommend going back and playing NFL 2k5 on XBOX in Progressive Scan. Hard to beat that game. I can't remember if PS2 version did it or not.

    Another thing that annoys me is that most of the players don't even look like them self's.

    I was a huge Madden football fan, and was pretty dominant in the tournament scene. Then I just got burnt out. It was the same problems and exploits every year. Features missing from the game that were present a few years back, having to defend against glitching instead of just playing sim football...it wore on me. I picked up Madden 25 for PS4 and played it for about a week. Same issues, same missing features, same exploits, same super LBs that jump 50 feet in the air....EA will never learn. I really wish the team that makes MLB The Show could put out a football game. Is there any doubt that those guys wouldn't deliver? Long live 2K5 though.

    Another year of video game football and another year of frustration. Apparently. I haven't played it but previous experience has coincided with this.

    I haven't really had any issues with it. I guess if I was a damn good player, and the game caused me to suck at it... then I'd probably destroy it too lol.

    ... none of this post had anything to do with Locomotive's ability.

    The issues are mainly just how it plays and what is still being left out. Madden 2005 did everything right.

    2k games were not all that..most people just say that because they hate madden and remember the average 2k game of the day..2k games would be Ok but if the nba 2k14 is anything to go by it would be riddled with bugs...I wish EA would make a decent basketball game..competition is always nice.

    False.

    This was the first Madden I bought since some Madden on the PS2....aside from buying 1 or 2 for $1.99 in the used games bin at Gamestop and never playing them.

    I have no need for Madden games. Yes, I'm a sports fan, but I just don't think they translate well to games...or at least no one has made it worth it.

    There are too many nuances and querks in both Madden and FIFA games. They are just to aggravating.
