I think that this is the one thing that people over look or do not realize about NFL 2k5. This is what set 2k5 apart and what has carried this game for as long as it has. It actually feels like you are playing different NFL type teams in NFL 2k5.(I rate an 8)

Well, either way you look at it football gaming has not been the same and the only game in town needs to reinvent the NFL game for consoles. Football games use to be system sellers, but now they are on the back burner to FPS and MUSIC games!
Man....I truly miss the debating of which football game was the best. Now we are left complaining about how our only option is a piece of crap.

This is spot on.....and if EA continued to have competition 09 might have actually been the game that everyone has been dreaming about. Instead, it's 06-08 with a new coat of paint and some missing features.

No they didn't, until the Manefesto came out. A dedicated group of gamers picked apart the 05 programming and found 2 or 3 steps that were not coded into the game. By creating a way to alter the game, thereby simulating the missing steps, the teams began to have a personality close to their NFL counterparts. Funny thing is......the first step was to control all 32 teams. That in itself was frowned upon and a lot of gamers still frown upon it. Personally, ever since that step I've chosen to control all 32 teams regardless of need. Its exciting to me to draft and choose FA's for all the teams knowing that I'm actually targeting a true "need". The other cool thing about controlling all the teams in 05 was that you target a needed player and then have all the teams "in the running" bid the same bid, leaving the player to decide which team he wanted to go to. Eventually I added a house rule and said that the last three teams from the prior year could bid a higher amount for the FA. This still didn't guarantee them the FA, while giving the "bottom feeders" a good possibility to pick up a key FA or two.

Head over to Maddenmania,and do a search for the "Madden manifesto".
This was created by alot of dedicated Madden fans for 05,and imo,it made 05 ALOT better.

Re: Honestly, Madden 09 the game that's sucked the enthusiasm out of me

I play madden a lot, but it's only because I'm addicted to competition. I only play online and it's to move up in rank. Sometimes I don't even want to play the game, I just want to fast forward to the result of the game. I will admit that I do have fun outsmarting my opponent, but the game itself is lack luster.

you're right. I've already accepted the fact that I will probably get the game every year because for the hype and anticipation that will preceed, $60 is juuust cheap enough for you to complain and threaten not to get it, but go ahead and buy it.
