As has been alluded to in this thread, but not implicitly stated, I think the reasoning is if people can openly admit to loving Madden then the exclusive license will stay with EA and things will never change.

But as I said, we are about to get EA College Football so things will already be changing next year.

Yes I have noticed that as well, they get upset at any positive thoughts about madden. I understand that they want changes, we all want the game to continue to improve but I am going to purchase what I like. I would love to see other developers making football games but until the NFL changes its mind, the exclusive license is here to stay.

And yes it is the best football videogame to me, as I said several times that is my opinion and although it may not be popular here, I can assure you it is an opinion that many others hold, even if they don't want to speak up and say it, for obvious reasons lol
A salute to ODogg, the true OG, for standing his ground!You are not alone.

I actually think madden 24 is the best football game i have played. Period. And, like ODogg, i do not need to justify my feeling about Madden to anyone. Period.

So to say it is one of the best console football games ever per the OP, is a bit of a stretch and more of a personal opinion, wouldn't you say?

If that's what you're going for, then so be it.

As per usual Madden release, it had bugs, the UI was very slow and clunky and by the time the last title update hits in April, it should be a decent football sim.

It's all subjective and based on personal taste just like movies, music etc. And that's the same for the person who says it's the best ever as well as the one who says it's horrible. For how I enjoy games, I too think that Madden 24 is the best on-field football game ever made. It makes every game before it feel outdated. That's just personal opinion.

I'd also love to see other companies be able to make games as well, because it would mean more options for us...and for me that goes for all sports football, basketball, baseball, hockey, soccer, boxing etc. That's what I grew up on. But, it's just not like that anymore. But, I'm not gonna sit here and give EA props for their sales...the same way I'm not doing it for Take Two and NBA 2k. I have and always will have beef with the microtransactions bull! But, I can separate the two and give em credit when I feel it's due all the same.

This is why reading comprehension is key. When did I say anything negative or say anything about him or anyone enjoying the game? Read his first post, then read mine. After you do that maybe youíll understand what I posted. Critical thinking isnít required when what I posted was in laymanís terms. Heís happy Madden is selling very well and I donít have any issues with that. Itís the fact that heís hoping EA continues to have the exclusive license because of this gameís current sales success. Like I said reading comprehension is key.

We all want competition, as has been stated many times, but that is a separate issue from any of us actually enjoying Madden.

btw Madden WILL have competition in EA College Football, and as I said above, that will likely help to push the game to be better.

Iím glad youíre enjoying it and thatís not my issue. I want this game to be better and to also have competition. Eaís college football isnít competition. A different company making an NFL game is competition. Your first post sounds like youíre excited that this was a supposed make or break year yet the game is selling well. Then youíre glad itís doing well so EA can continue to have the exclusive license to NFL games and THATís my problem. Your first post sounds like youíre doing jumping jacks at the idea. Hope this clears it up. Not once did I mention anything about you enjoying madden.

Re: Kudos to EA: Madden NFL 24 sets new sales records!

Artman, Iíve actually said a couple times times that I donít like exclusivity and would like us to go back to like the 90s when each fall we had there to five games to choose from

Öbut if we have to have it, because thatís what the NFL will continue to do, then EA is absolutely the developer I want doing it..

Itís two separate issues

They? So you're in that elite group that refers to the disgruntled majority as They. Shaming passionate gamers on a platform designed for passionate gamers isn't cool.

I am a proud member of They, just a fanatic football guy that would love to experience what we all anticipated would be better than it is. Apparently the disgruntled voice is silent because year after year we don't get what we should have gotten (and had) years ago.

Re: Kudos to EA: Madden NFL 24 sets new sales records!

I don't buy into some of the guys that love the game but also say there are things that should be better because they get too annoyed and combative at those that like the game but express their frustrations.

It's ok,while people don't have to harp on negativity they don't have to be the almighty defenders of EA either.They've put people through an unreasonable amount of crap through the years.

Yes,I've made the most out of the many subpar years like many others but 19 years is a long time and I remember how they were on the right track with 16 only to go way off and now finally getting back to where it should be other than a few things that they really need to address that have been mentioned enough.
