Look back at the historical postings of each Madden release and youíll find the exact same thing.

When M17 dropped it went through the same thing M19 is going through now with itís critisisms and folks did the exact same thing, noting how a previous release was better. lol

None the less, whatever it takes to enjoy you some football as the season starts up.

Cheers!!!

Played M17 for 2 years and it was a blast. However, while there was some things I did like out of the box, the concrete-shoed QB was really bad before patches.

How was 17ís franchise? Wonky sim stats or anything? I have it but donít remember. This thread has me intrigued to play it and skip 19.

I wouldn't let this thread sway you much, nostalgia is powerful. I can look back and remember how great each madden I have owned was. I don't remember sim stats being wonky, but I didn't really check. I do like that 19 has scheme fit to make it more interesting.

I enjoyed 17, I'm definitely enjoying 19.

I loved it but I am enjoying Madden 19 more so, despite it's flaws. I can actually play man coverage now and DB shading and the passing controls I feel are vastly improved, although a tough learning curve concerning the latter.

I didn't notice any crazy sim stats or stability problems with Madden 17 franchise mode. It's your call my friend.

The tackling is 100% better on Madden 2017 than on 2019. Madden 2019 should be called NFL blitz.

This is no longer possible in Madden 2019 because they went back to the scripted tackles and remove all physics from the game.



Playing with the DB is more fun on 2019, i do agree on that.

I may well mold a Classic Roster File on Madden 17.
Booker is correct, that tackling is WAAYYY better on M-17. The key thing for me, is that you can give the computer team a custom defensive playbook.

This makes the game much better, imo, than a prettier looking M-18 or 19. Why they blocked this in 18 or 19, I do not know. I also do not see such bad pursuit angles, is that right, Booker? I also only play offense and never defense, so the QB on cpu team does not impact me.

Thx for contributing to the thread.

Yep, ... Madden 17 is still the best.
Play a game with OOTB 17 VS Madden 19 and the current Madden just feels gross to me.

This is not nostalgic on my behalf. I really think it is very stale and robotic.
Could Madden 17, OOTB, be the 1st cousin of NFL 2K5 ?
