Yeah they need to add in some situational stuff. Hopefully they'll let us try to establish drives on offense. The should gives us three downs to get a first down(since you should punt on most 4th downs), and then make us start over if we don't get a first down.

On defense they could give us the chance to try an stop the defense from getting a first down, when you stop them, you start over. If they score you start over.

This way you could practice plays tht work in certain situations.

Take off plastic...put in xbox...pray it works (09 had dirty disc before it even worked)

Look at rosters

Explore anything new

Start franchise...sim through first year. I save that and then go to the offseason to see whats different.

Start another franchise play all games...try to outdue the simmed season.

Make sure everybody on the Cowboys are wearing the right equipment
Then Start a Franchise

Then somewhere down the line, import my NCAA Legend

I usually make a few roster edits first as there are almost always some significant changes the retail shipped roster won't have. It serves as a good way to get used to the menus, check out any new equipment, the player models etc.

Voted other because I got straight to practice for like an hour, then check the rosters (to see who I want) then go straight to my Bills fantasy draft. Hope this years franchise makes me go out and buy madden this year.

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

lol, I guess I'm the only guy who goes straight online. Some of the best games Ive had online are the first week. People are trying stuff out and not cheesing usually. Everyone has a fair chance to win since the game is new. I did start off 23-0 this year due to this. People started finding BS and I started losing games but that first week was great. Not only because I won but the games where as sim as they get for play now games. I also rather try stuff out against a human first to see how it works. I then go to practice mode and try to fine tune what I was having problems with.

Yeah, I don't go online until I finally get the hang of the new gameplay features, etc.

I haven't been playing Madden 09 online really at all since I've been too busy to sit down and take the time to do so.
