M15 was great because it was the first major graphical leap.


M20 was my favorite because it was the most fun and they had franchise in a relatively decent spot at the time. Can't go back to either of those games now after experiencing next gen player movement, but i had way more fun playing them than the new games.

Re: Best Madden and why ?

Madden 08 with all the bells and whistles is a hard game to beat. 25 gets a lot of love, but latest one people like is 20.

08's got modern rules (OT, 25yd touchback, etc), the absolute best graphics that that generation of gaming could handle (imo nearly up to par with Madden 22, besides player models). Madden 08's turf (FF/FI mod) is clearly superior to Madden 22s, EA likes to degrade it quietly and reimplement decent graphics to add shine to newer games.

Here's a graphic comparison (08 vs 22)

Madden 04 through 08 were the best. I think 07 was unremarkable, but the others really stood out.

Re: Best Madden and why ?

Best for ME....

I'll take '22. It's got the best overall package between a fun franchise offering and fun gameplay. They've continued improving the base each year once we got out of the abysmally dull and drab PS2/PS3 eras. (I know there are flaws...every Madden has them....but it truly is my favorite overall package right now).

The Madden '16 on-field gameplay is still amongst my favorite - but the franchise mode itself is so sadly outdated that it is unplayable for me these days.
