I also see if Rocket Catching/Strafe Catching is still good :P

Then I find exploits..

Sorry I'm one of those non sim ballers.

1. Check out the new features/menus
2. (Kinda embarrassed to admit it) See what songs are on the soundtrack
3. Go into a play now game

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

After spending a good 20min. trying to open the game and getting disapointed by the poor instruction booklet, I turn the game on and let it go through all of it's opening cinimatics. If the opening credits and what not are cool, I will rewatch them most times I turn the game on, if not I know to skip it. [I always watch the intro of any new game I buy. OCD?]

Next I fumble through the menues and try to find the rosters and look through the 49ers and Patriots, then other teams and then sort by age and look at the rookies. Recently I like to go to superstar and that is a better way to look at the rookie class, then quit SS mode. Once I have a good idea what the rosters look like I try and find any Football 101 or tutorials to show me the new features. Next I play a few "Play Now" games on All-Pro. I like to do 49ers at Raiders in the afternoon, the Giants at 49ers in the rain at night, then Colts at Patriots in the snow. These are great matchups. I ty to do rival games. Chicago at GB, Raiders at KC, etc.

Once I have a good feel for the game, and if I am still playing, I will start up some franchise mode.
