There was a point in time like 20 years ago where NFL Gameday was better than Madden. I remember when the PS1 first came out, NFL Gameday blew Madden out of the water. But guess what, because of the competition, EA stepped their game up. I remember when I first got Madden 01 for PS2, it was Amazing. Completely slaughtered NFL 2k. It was good to have choices because competition breeded inovation. The only reason NBA Live redid the faces in their game is because they got embarrassed last year. Otherwise, they would still just be talking about "bounce-tek" and "net physics."

im a madden fan always played madden over 2k BUT im actually disappointed in this news i would of rather had the license been spread around to add much need competition. I do not understand the Rex interview that happen at e3 challenging 2k knowing they own the license still(maybe at the moment he forgot). just would be nice to have more choices

Absolutely, man. When I was a kid, I played 2K, Madden, Gameday and Blitz. it was a beautiful thing having that many games around. I didn't realize it then, but that was the peak of football gaming.

Re: EA Still Owns the NFL License Exclusively

I just wish folks understood their part in funding EA's ability to afford the deal. They are buying exclusive rights with your $60.

"I hate Madden! I wish there was another game."

"EA, how much more do you need to renew the exclusive deal?"

"I can put $60 towards that."

"This game sucks! I hate Madden! I wish there was another game."

"Oh, how much more do you need EA?"

...

I don't see people that play the Show always comparing the current version to say MVP 2005 and saying how the latter was so much better. I don't see anyone comparing NBA 2k14 to say Lakers vs Celtics. I don't see anyone comparing NHL to Blades of Steel. These comparisons are not made because the current games, even with their flaws are far superior to the previous ones. Bottom line make a superior game in EVERY way and they won't hear it. In addition, these comparisons are the price they have to eat because their corporate team eliminated all the competition. So all eyes are on you jack and when you don't produce it make it look that much worse.
*DELETED for profanity*

Re: EA Still Owns the NFL License Exclusively

I keep telling everyone I know for years to buy it used. I don't care about ultimate team so not sure how that affects people buying the game used, but just buy it used. I bought madden 9,10 used. Skip 11-13 (because they completely destroyed what actually worked in 10, no freaking ice skating) and bought madden 25 used. Bought ncaa 9-11 13-14 used.

The more people buy the games used, and keep the money out of EA's wallets, EA will notice. I understand how hard it is to wait on a game, but hell wait another week, 2 at the most, and you can get it used from some where. I got madden 25 used 2 weeks after the fact for I think 25 bucks on CL. I know people have leagues and such, which I understand or if you play online. I get it. Just throwing this out there.

Buy it used people. Just suck it up and have some self control for a couple of weeks! Lol

Back on topic. This totally sucks!! Just sucks. I really want 2k football or someone to challenge madden. Oh well.
