Another pile of years before (hopefully) the garbage that is madden has competition and we as consumers have a choice with NFL video games.

I wouldn't count on it. NFL doesn't care about the quality of Madden. 2k was bad ass back in the day but sadly, it isn't going to be back.

I do not know why you are complaining. 2k's latest football game, All Pro Football 2k8 was complete garbage. Madden 08 blew that trash out of the water by far.

Exactly. That game sucks. I have it right now, and it was simply not nearly as good as Madden, which isn't as bad as people will lead you to believe. The game looked like absolute trash unless you have HD, there is less customization than Madden, and if your players aren't "legends"(such as the extraordinary Andre Ware, they are almost completely useless.

I didnt like 2K8 at all but Madden was terrible and has been terrible for a while. Thats why lead producer David Ortiz quit last week, he was tired of the company being content with terrible maddens and having to pretend that he was proud of the game.

I never got why everyone is in love with 2k football. I rented the last one with an NFL liscense and thought it was crap. I'll take Madden over it no question. The only thing positive that came from it was competition forcing EA to keep improving their product.

MVP 05 with Manny on the cover is to this day the best baseball game on the market aside from RBI Baseball 1989 for Nes.

All Star Baseball with Jeter on the cover >>>> MVP with anyone on the cover...

I absolutely loved making an expansion team on ASB, picking my stadium, having an EXPANSION draft of real MLB players and having my team and another expansion franchise play in a realistic dynasty mode...The game even had mascots and you had one with your expansion team.

I loved that game. Then like any franchise, they take the things people like out. Next year's ASB didn't have the expansion. I love how on Madden '08 I can create a playbook, oh wait...

My article is better:
http://xbox360.ign.com/articles/851/851316p1.html
Quote:
IGN: Right. Well, today we're obviously talking heavily about exclusivity and deals and whatnot. With Backbreaker showing -- I take it you're familiar with Backbraeker a little bit?

Moore:
Oh yea.

IGN: Well they seem to be pushing technology forward a little bit, I don't want to say more so than Madden has, but they're hoping to reinvent the way football is played on consoles and they're doing this through new technology. I'm sure you're away of the new technology they're putting into it. Any aspirations of one day signing that technology to use in Madden or looking elsewhere for new technology ideas?

Moore: Yeah, I mean one thing we are working on -- again, no announcements here -- but I can tell you that we continue to look at physics engines and we're still not quite in the world of football videogames in true physics with regard to a player hitting a certain player at a certain angle and a certain speed and what have you, I think we're very good...

IGN: Definitely. Last year's game was as good as it has ever looked.

Moore: I've seen some things, and no announcements yet, but I've seen some things that will continue improving [on that]. It's the one thing that we look at every year, "How do we improve the physics of collision? How do we make it feel like it's truly a football game?" It's sometimes the one Achilles heel when you're watching a videogame versus watching the real game, I think we've got the graphics down pretty good but the physics are still, because it's such an interesting game in regards to the different angles you get hit at, it feels like no two tackles are ever the same and, you know, we've gotta be able to replicate that within our physics engine and we're on that.
f*** EA

Yet Madden 08 still isn't as good as NFL 2K5 imo. Funny how that is.
