This is nonsense. As someone that played six online seasons of APFB 2K8, and loved 2K football to death, Madden eclipsed 2K's gameplay years ago. That doesn't make Madden perfect. But let's not pretend that 2K8 was so perfect.

Do this today: Instead of $%*#[email protected]& on a game you're not going to play or movie you're not going to watch, say something good about a piece of media you're excited about.

Do the same thing tomorrow. And the next. Now do it forever.

Interesting.

You would think how well the sports game of the year did actually portraying the sport would at least get a sentence...

Is what it is I guess.

Sports game of the year? This game went backwards on the field and didnít touch franchise mode. I didnít try Longshot in the 2 rentals I had with the game but none of the reviews I read claimed it was that amazing to earn Madden SGoTY.

No, that is wrong.

APF still animates better. Fact. The running game is way better. Dline and oline interaction blows madden away. The passing game is miles ahead. I mean look at QB drop backs. Heck simple things like the ball actually being in the QBs hands. I mean QB drop backs and throwing motion are so much better in APF itís unbelievable.

Basically itís 2k vs live animation wise. But the difference is much worse than that.

All of these are indisputable. Madden has improved its not terrible. Some new animations look really good. But itís still so far behind. In many areas.

I've noticed my interest in sports games in general drop considerably this year. As someone who essentially only plays solo offline franchise it feel like this preference is being left behind in favour of storylines and continual sale models (MUT).

This award and the consensus from the casual gamers are putting the nail in the coffin for the traditional franchise mode in sports games going forward. If it's too complicated, doesn't include enough fluff and can't make millions after sale revenue then it won't be included in upcoming releases
