ive never bought a madden. i tried one at a friends for about two minutes and thought it was a pathetically lazy attempt at a football game. When i wanna play football video games, i still go back to the old nfl 2k5 on ps2. screw madden it blows so bad.
as for the bolded, exactly. i was really hoping 2k sports would sue them and say it was a monopoly or something and try to create competition for the game but alas, instead we just have no good football video games.
