I have pretty much given up on the NCAA Football series. The last I played was the PS2 version of 06 and it's been at least 3 weeks since my last game.

I was playing it in coach mode. It was pretty enjoyable but after a while the "old" aspect caught up to me, especially in graphics. I will no doubt pick up the next version for PS3 and hope for the best.

Frankly, NFL Head Coach seems to have totally changed my sports gaming habits. I've become addicted to the notion of just calling plays and handling subs and seeing things unfold. It's refreshing to take stick skills completely out of the equation.

It reached a point where I'm also about to give up on NHL 09 altogether even though hockey games are usually my most played.

On the other hand, despite my limited interest in baseball, I've discovered how wonderful and addicting The Show's manager mode is. I guess football and baseball are the sports best suited to coach mode since they almost have a "turn-based" flow to them.

Are you still playing NCAA Football at all? Which version PS2 or PS3? I'm taking a break from the PS3 version over the holidays. I'm playing Uncharted again, will be getting Star Wars Force Unleashed for Christmas and might even pick up NBA Live before the Show drops.

I'm not sure how much more I will play NCAA 09. I still like playing it but it doesn't suck me in anymore. The lousy cpu running game is really bothering me right now. The lack of a cpu deep passing game leads to too many games where the passing attack feels similar. Maybe I will have to try playing online once in awhile but I love the dynasty mode.
