Bingo dude!

I love RSV2, the servers stay filled with cool people, the game has so many wicked game modes to play, and it never really gets old if you are serious about being a really good player.

But this message board is one of my favs because it allows me to communicate with other football minded gamers who like me are die hard football junkies, and hardcore gamers. But yeah, at least I can go play terrorist hunt (RSV2), watch the bowl games & the NFL playoffs...GO COWBOYS!

^ Actually kind of a hopeful song... Which I'm sure the Madden PR people could spin any which way... But the truth of it is, the song is about independence.

The quality of Madden makes no difference whatsoever.

edit: forgot you could embed videos...

Adding to this thought...

If console makers don't adopt a subscription model similar to cable/dish tv then they are dumber than I thought. Planned obsolescence (more wiki, read with grain of salt) in the console market has hit a dead end.

Really, EA should just come out with a subscription based console themselves if other companies refuse to do so. No, it wouldn't be strong arming. It would be having the guts to face up to the stark reality. They could just say: "Look, we're tired of making games for your consoles. This (subscription based gaming) is the future, and the future is now. If you want to stick to gimmicks like motion controls and personal networking, fine. We're going to stick to gaming, and you're perfectly welcome to hop on board if you want to."

Bold? Yes. But Sony and Microsoft have put the wagon before the horses and are going nowhere. With some 3rd party titles EA just might have the strength to pull something like this off. If not, they might at least be able to smack some sense into the big 3. Someone's got to.

Of course, if EA went solo, it'd also mean they could make a baseball game again.



edit: that smog (bill callahan) video actually applies to EA in this case... no spin needed either... finding strength in independence.

That's not a solution for me; baseball and basketball aren't strategic enough for me. In baseball, you hit the ball, catch the ball and throw the ball. In basketball, you dribble the ball, shoot the ball, pass the ball and play defense. Five years ago, I rarely played football video games(just basketball), until I bought madden. After that I was hooked, so much more goes into football. Play selection, personnel, down and distance, defensive looks and adjustments.

I picked up COD5; shooting people online was fun for a bit, but eventually that got boring.

I for one wont be buying 2010, the game has to exceed the previous year's game by leaps and bounds to justify purchase year after year.

There are too many Halo 3s, World of Warcrafts, etc to keep me busy.

I can get my NFL fix now from actually watching the games on Monday, Thursday, Sunday and sometimes Saturdays.

If the game is stripped down from the core and completely redone and instead of worrying about correct chin straps but instead is more fun, and less of the Madden Nation garbage we see on MTV, then I might rent it. I'm definitely not buying 2010 - after all, it's the year we make contact.

As long as they have these cheesers,glitchers,Madden Challenges,Madden Nation and exploiters,we can expect the game to be the same because EA considers these guys as the true hardcore gamers so they will sell a billion copies just because these idiots will always buy madden and ruin the experience for real gamers

Bought every Madden since 01

After 5 months with it, I can say it's one of the worst.

Soo many glitches and just bad AI quirks.

The tackles constantly turn and watch the DE run right by for the sack in under 2 seconds flat.

Stopping the run is too easy. Stopping the pass is unbalanced.

It's missing so many things that the old 04 and 05 ps2 versions had. Such as individually bumping recievers, shading receivers inside or out, etc...
