Madden 2013
 
I figured I would go ahead and make a Madden 2013 thread. Here are the first batch of rankings:

I like the direction this game is going in letting you play Superstar mode online against other people...however I wont buy a MAdden again until you can play superstar with people on your same team online.

Splat 07-30-2012 10:11 PM

I'm just going to rent it.

I bought Madden 12 and was pretty pumped since it was my first Madden on either 360 or PS3 and man was I disappointed.

Ness 07-30-2012 11:28 PM

I haven't purchased a Madden game since 2008. Other things in life got in the way, but my PS3 is sitting in it's box just gathering dust and I feel obligated to use it. I need to purchase a new TV first though. My old one is a tube and is just terrible. I've paid close attention to the game this year, and although a lot of people bag on it being the same product every year, I like what they've done with the new "franchise" mode. At least what I've heard, and since it's been a while I think I might take a chance and buy this one...assuming I get the chance.

A friend and I have wanted that for years.

I liked 2012 *shrug*
I didn't buy 2011 either. Don't remember about 2010 though

The full list of QB ratings should be out today - I am getting a little more excited about the whole infinity engine and updated physics of the game. I am a little bummed that offline franchise is being replaced by the connected career mode - I like playing Madden offline and NCAA online. Last year I thought the roster expansion was great. The only real negative for me is the lack of an option to edit players (i.e change RE to LE/OLB to DE etc.) The Madden update rosters are not always the most accurate.

I will post the QB ratings when they are released. I hate how ESPN basically took over the whole rating release.

They took out pretty much everything I enjoyed this year...but connected careers is atleast a step in getting progress to the madden franchise.

No fantasy drafts....no importing draft classes....no multiple team franchises. Not sure I'm buying the RPG part of it having an big impact but we'll see.

Ness 08-03-2012 11:01 AM

Here are the complete quarterback rankings.

Christian Ponder's rating just doesn't make sense...

DeepThreat 08-03-2012 11:32 AM

Colt McCoy is rated higher than Brandon Weeden...

Wait.....WHAT?!?! This connected careers thing officially sucks. I always run 1 franchise as the Giants, one as a fantasy team and maybe a superstar mode(I never play online, too many annoying 12 year olds). I always loved importing draft classes too so I could continue a franchise at least a few years, but nope, not any more.

I agree with most of the posts that were on that page...Andrew Luck and RGIII being better than half the starters in the game is simply ridiculous. They haven't taken 1 snap in the NFL...

Tim Tebow is higher than both of them :facepalm:

killxswitch 08-03-2012 11:40 AM

I am thinking about getting this just because the Colts are going to be so different this year.

Yea I noticed that too, I would certainly put Alex Smith and Andy Dalton ahead of them, but they love to overrate rookies.

EDIT: Wow, they gave RG3 a ****** awareness so he wouldn't be too good, if he had even a 70 awareness he would probably be a top 10 QB in this game with those other overalls

Exactly this.

Madden is still fun to play with a few buddies, but man is it ever a far cry from what it used to be. It's a shame really.

It's become a monopoly with no competition so they can afford to make no changes whatsoever year in and year out and still makes money since it is the only NFL game out there.

Since when do Madden ratings make sense.

LOL. Of course. That's how they always get a player's overall down if an athlete's physical traits are through the roof.

Forenci 08-03-2012 11:52 AM

Meh. I really hope it's good this year. I decided not to buy NCAA 13 this year and am really hoping Madden is good finally. It's been years since I've bought a Madden.

That's a damn lie, not-Gimli.

fenikz 08-03-2012 01:16 PM

just in case you are all wondering once again I will not be buying Madden

bantx 08-03-2012 01:40 PM

i get it every year because we usually play it every weekend with friends and family when we have football sunday.

TheBoyWonder22 08-03-2012 04:15 PM

I can't decide between the 360 version or the PS3 version. Thoughts?
