Madden Features through the Years

I decided to go back and list teh back of the box features and game details from Game Stop Website just to see what has been added, reworded, re-did, focused on, etc throughout the years. Each post will have the various games.

Madden 14 (Madden 25) - through Madden 20 - XBOX and XBOX One
Madden 11-13 - XBOX 360

I stopped at 11 since Madden 20 didnt have any feautres listed on the back of the actual case and I figured 10 years was good enough
