In previous Madden games I play with 15 minute quarters to keep the game as authenic as possible. I've always been able to keep the numbers pretty realistic minus the occasional game where I would put up 60+ points. But I am the Patriots more often than not and sometimes Brady is just Brady.
With 12 I can't play 15 minute quarters anymore. I'm scoring 50+ points every game even playing my backup players most of the game. Has it gotten to the point that Madden is made for the ADD who can only handle playing 5 minute quarters? I know most gamers play on 5 minute quarters, even so-called simballers. If I'm playing in my season I like the games as real as possible. If I'm playing online or with a buddy we use the 5 minute option. Madden 11 gave me some realistic results but I guess I'm going to have to adjust the minutes.
