"Mike Florio takes a look at the lack of improvements from the Madden video game franchise. Florio rips the idea of promoting a tournament to determine a cover athlete, when the real attention needs to be paid to a mediocre product inside the box."

He said Madden sucks. Has sucked for last 10 years. Said cover vote is stupid because what's in the box is trash. He did research because he had forgotten what had happened and that 2K5 was better than anything Madden has put out even though it came out in 1995 (his words, not mine). Says EA went exclusive rather than making a better product. Problem is no competition. Hopes "the band can get back together" and make 2K5 again.

Applaud mainstream media for stepping out.

This should light a huge fire, at least it better.

But not really sure it will..I hope as well..but again I'm not sure..in the mean time it will be spun as he is 2K fan boy..etc..I have learn to deal with Madden being Madden..but any continued positive change for the future is nice..but maybe just maybe with "pro football" writer putting his two cents in it will help us all...have to say I expected a lot more peopling commenting on this..on both sides of the aisle

I've been playing a lot of 2K5 lately, and 2k5 still does Wide Receiver play better than Madden. The way the defensive backs play the Wideouts in 2K is very life like.

Graphically the game looks dated and trust me 2K5 has it's faults but it's ridiculous that it can still hold a candle to Madden 25 despite being separated by 10 years and two generations of consoles.

I think the mainstream coverage probably begins and ends with his video. Just slow news time in the NFL.

Wow, so much for that theory that the "simheads" are in the minority, and the general gaming public could care less about all the issues we bring up on here. You have Florio on NBC (national tv) saying Madden sucks, the other game was better,and that EA killed the competition be because they feared that other game .


He said exactly what was said here, except he said it on national tv. Did anyone think that would actually happen? That might light a fire under EA's butt.

Wont light a fire, only declining sales will. Lower the sales, more pressure from corporate and NFL to make a better product or license opens up or goes to somebody else.

Right now, i believe there may be a declining trend in madden sales annually, but not big enough to make a difference.
