Again Capnkill lol we are probably the few people that will go into practice mode first. Not that I will be in there long because i'll be wanting to jump online with a friend or play some multiplayer with one of my friends.

I mean what better way to start off by talkin smack on the game with a friend or just someone online, but iv'e already started talking the smack though and its april!!!

Look at the roster of the Cowboys just to get familiar with my team, then my brother looks at the Packers with the same intent. Then we play against each other, Cowboys at Packers, at Lambeau, in the snow.

Always practice first. Get a feel of how the game plays, see if controls are the same, view in on player models, etc for about 15 minutes. Then play about 2-3 quick games. Then Franchise for the rest of the season and beyond.

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

I jump right into dynasty mode and then I actually play the preseason games to get a feel for the game. By the time I get the 4 games in (I play 5 min quarters pre season) I am ready for the regular season ( and up my quarters to 9 min)

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

I usually run a quick "Play Now" game, then I check the player ratings. When I'm comfortable with the controls and features, I jump into Franchise mode.

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

The first thing I do is play a few "Play now" games to get the feel of things.

Then start trying to figure out what sliders I'll need to use. Then start my Vikings franchise. And then back to the slider section...again.

I USED to jump right into franchise.

Now i test bugs from the previous year to see if they are still there. Then i go to edit and search for glitches/bugs. Then maybe play now to get a feel of the new game and hope i dont put it away til next year hoping for MORE. Then i start on slider adjustments, this is where the bulk of my first few days ends up. Then start a franchise and cross my fingers.

God i miss just jumping in and knowing only good things lie ahead....Remember those days?
