I enjoyed both Madden and 2k that year though. I'm sure that VC noticed EA always came up short on the presentation side and so that was why they had a major focus on the presentation during development of 2k5.

VC developers was like "yea we got something for EAs monkey asses this year"(2005), lol.

I think tiburon is about to lock it up for good this year though. Its a done deal. After this year, even if competition arises from somewhere else, tiburons gonna smash em from here on out. Mark them words.


9 years in the video game industry is like 50 years to the rest of us, especially from 1996-2004. VC was a nothing of a company at that time, they are lucky they got bought by Sega, otherwise they would have been bought and sold and changed names a dozen times already. Think about all the little companies Activision bought up back then. I would imagine the majority of the staff changed 10 times over from 1996-2004.

People act as if VC and Tiburon are a couple of buddies who run the business out of their garage.

Actually, VC made numerous Madden games on the SNES console so it wasn't their first football game.

2k5 vs Madden 05 was a tough choice. Both games were awesome. I ended up buying both and enjoying both. Both games brought great memories.
