I think madden has become one those games where either u like it because ur a maddenholic or because you like sports. Either the way its still a good game

BTW: Been playing madden since sega 88' and continue to love it every year

I also played madden since 88 and 2k5 took them out..im a football game fan

and they decided to take the football genre for themselves and thats bs

also i remember gameday beating them not sure what year it was but madden had to use a new engine and yes they took over but it seems like the same game over and over

the best improvement i have seen in any football franchise was 2k5 vs 2k4

that game rocks and if there was a 2k6 i am sure it would hurt them bigtime

just look at nba live (ea) vs 2k5 (basketball) it is way better for sure and 2k6 will destroy (ea) basketball game.....

Madden needs a new engine not the same game with minor upgrades...

I am so pissed 2k5 wont have downloads especially with the new season starting

its a if we are forced to play madden and i refuse

i guess ill play 2k6 for the next gen and wait for the 5 years till real sim football is back.

im going to create a (origen type) room for the end of maddens contract with a countdown that would be sweet.....

I must agree the NBA 2K series are much better than EA

And it was 98 and 99 when gameday was better than Madden

But anyways while I think the NFL 2K series were good, some of the gameplay was still kind of choppy and not as smooth. I think one of the main selling points for it also was the fact that it was cheap and it was an alternative to the madden monopoly which overtime had become complacent in their development.

While I agree its time for a Madden overhaul, overall madden just has that flame that I continue to fly to every year and when its all said and done Madden will remain one of the top franchises of all time

I don't know how either of you were playing Madden 88 on SEGA, the first game wasnt even out in 88.

The first version of the game was released in 1989 for the PC, as John Madden Football. The first console version (and the version that made it a top-selling franchise) for the Sega Genesis followed in 1990 with a Super Nintendo version available a year later. EA Sports has released annual updates for all versions since 1991's John Madden Football '92.

The persistence paid off. John Madden Football--with a full 11 players per side--was released in 1989 for the Apple II computer. This first game served as a launching point that soon propelled the series to other, more enduring platforms such as the Sega Genesis and the PC.

88 89 whatever i remember a football game even before that it was sticks runing around and there wasnt 11 on a team ..

I glad i was able to expirience how games have come along first hand...

centerpede was one of my favorites on ....i think it was the 78 hundred or 76 dam
brain fart i wish i would have kept those....

but madden was the best back then..i think what happens now is all the hype that goes into madden football players ect...i dont think madden really has what it takes for real football fans like myself who has had dolphin season tickets since the early 90 ,s with my uncle can tell you that 2k sports was on the right track

forget about graphics even tho i like 2k it is really the depth of the game that 1 me over...

I was a madden fan till 2004 so from 88/89 till now was a long ride but they stoped pleasing the tru gamer...i see it like an arcade style football now a days

Bring back Joe Montana football......i would prefer it ohmy.gif yeaH i said it

I've seen the screens and it looks like utter crap compared to the rendered video they were showing.

I kid you not but NFL 2K5 gives it a run for its money.


Speaking of NFL 2K5, I was a big time Madden fan back in the early and mid 90's.
Actually, if it weren't for the original Madden, I probably wouldn't be as big a football fan as I am now.

The 16 bit games were awsome. The irony of coarse is that Visual Concepts developed a few of these titles for EA.
But as soon as they left, EA struggled. Tiburon (I think that's how it's spelled) just can't make the transition to 3D. Madden, while a pretty solid game, hasn't been able to duplicate the gameplay of the old school 16 bit games. Not even with Madden 06.... The game just runs too damn slow and the graphics are very weak.
Don't get me wrong, I'd be playing Madden till this day and would enjoy it somewhat. But Visual Concepts took over with the NFL 2K series.
It finally brought the speed of the 16 bit games into 3D.
Madden just couldn't compare after that. I tried playing Madden but it just felt like a step backwards. Sort of like going from playing your Xbox, to playing something as outdated as the original Playstation.

As for Gameday?
Sorry but I think that games was 100% garbage.
I never understood why it was so popular when it first came out....

Joe Montana Football was the NFL 2K's of the Genesis. It was the SEGA sports Football games and I agree with you, Joe Montana Sports Talk Fottball was the shit, fuck madden, yes even fuck madden back in the day, madden has always sucked, both the game and John Maddens annoying fat ass

I am just pissed about football for next gen......do we have to swallow madden

I think its Al micheals on 2k5 ....man his voice is sweet next to maddens constapated ass.

just imagine the leap 2k sports is taking with basketball ..how would 2k6 football look next gen.....freaking amazing.

this just isnt fair....and they say the N.F.L wanted it..

I think 2k sports should go to N.F.L europe id prefer 2k with players unknown then put up with madden...
