Do this today: Instead of $%*#[email protected]& on a game you're not going to play or movie you're not going to watch, say something good about a piece of media you're excited about.

Do the same thing tomorrow. And the next. Now do it forever.

Truth lol!!! I mean NFL 2K was a good game/series, but damn, it's not THAT good. IT's time to move forward people.

I'm a 2k fan first too but NFL fan overall. The reason is that 2k did things so well 5 years ago. It makes it worse that they did things really well where madden did things badly. I.e. presentation and OL/DL. Like they say if it ain't broke don't fix it

LoL at check ratings and rosters leading the poll. Most of you would probably go check if each Qb had hand warmers.

That's honestly what I do though, think of what we could be playing if there were no NFL license, and not just 2K's games, Madden game would have been better as well if there would have been competition. To be honest, I always think of what could have been almost anytime I think of Madden because they have yet to put out a game that makes me forget about ESPN NFL 2K5, even half a decade later. That's not my fault, that's theirs.

You fellas should look up the definition of a troll. My views might not be pro-Madden, and for good reason, but there's been no trolling on this board. Quite the opposite, I have asked questions about upcoming Madden 10 features, added ideas for Madden '10, noted issues with '09, and added clarity to conversations concerning how comparative features work in APF2K8. I have even gone out of my way on several threads to produce videos to convey ideas (one of which didn't make APF2K8 look too good).

Don't confuse a person's view whose may be different than your own and comparative analysis as trolling. It's definitely not the same thing. Am I jaded towards EA/Madden? Heck yeah, and rightfully so. Am I trolling? Nope.

Some threads I have started / ideas:

Re: What's the first thing you do in a new Madden game?

I check out the menus real quick to see what the settings and customizability options are like. Then a couple play now games on the default settings to see what the gameplay feels like.

Re: What's the first thing you do in a new Madden game?

i'll actually wait to see what ppl are saying about this years game. last year, if you recall, ppl were not happy right off the jump, and most complaint were justifiable.

i'll also continue to praise 2k5 til EA makes a better game. not 2k5 was faaaar from perfect, but it did a great representation of football(as does APF2k8). so those who wish to praise 2k5, i say go for it. EA needs to get there sh!t together...

but, it the game is getting good props, then ince opened:
1. always go into practice mode.
2. play now
