This dude gets ****in RAW on Madden hahaha, this is good ****. I've been playing Madden 09 of late and I enjoy it well enough. I've noticed all those errors, though. Even when I put LT on the Jets (here's to keeping 08 LT instead of this greying veteran we found), he doesn't explode through the LOS like he should. He always, always, always gets caught up on either Mangold or Faneca. And I hate it. The only run plays I can pull off are draws. And then the trucking doesn't work either. Even if I get Shonn Greene with a full head of steam on an MLB who's standing still, only one guy's winning that battle and he's not wearing green. And I hate it. The rest of the game is pretty good, though.

Its true and it started with NFL 2k3. I’m an oldskool gamer that goes back to the Intelivision days. I tried the first two NFL 2ks and they were terrible. NBA 2k and NBA 2k1 were great; NFL 2k and NFL 2k1 got great reviews but they were weak. Madden was better then. NFL 2k2 got poor reviews so I jumped on Madden 2003 and thought it was good. Lacking in certain ways but good. Meanwhile NFL 2k3 got nice reviews and some of the stuff that I disliked about the first two NFL 2ks were apparently fixed but I didn’t play it. Madden 04 came out and man that game rubbed me the wrong way. People will look back at how 04 still does certain things better than today’s Maddens and its true. The game still has the most impressive big hits. Still the comeback AI and the fact that deep passes were easier than short passes made the game just feel too ’luck driven’. I could not justify a full price purchase.

The NFL 2k4 demo sold me. I felt like I had control of my own destiny. NFL 2k4 was indeed a great game of football. It didn’t get old. The running game was over powered but it felt like a star colligate running back than another sport which was what Madden felt like at the time. With the price drop and the marketing 2k5 made a lot of fans. These fans were late to the show. They already had Madden beat worse the year before and I suspect the year before that too.

Not entirely. The NFL 2K series made a number of gameplay innovations thus threatening the Madden supremacy so while the game never actually surpassed Madden, EA used their immense financial muscle to remove the competition before it could.
