Peyton Hillis of the Cleveland Browns!  I voted in this every week in hopes to prevent Vick from winning.  Glad to see that he didn't.

I figured it would be DeMaurice Smith or Goodell.

Don't bad things usually happen to those on the cover?  If so wouldn't one want Vicks to win?

Vick was on the 2004 cover.  Look what happened to him after that.

Same here.  But for different reasons.  Plus, a friend of mine made a good point.  At least let Cleveland have something to be happy about.

Wow, that list is amazing.  Seriously.

Spoiler for Hiden:
Bigger cheerleader tits?  Just what we always wanted!
Enhanced goal post reflections?  Sweet!
A new high-res menu system?  Excellent!
New sideline animations?  Couldn't be better!
Oh, no gameplay advancements?  Entirely expected.

I don't follow football all that closely but I  have always recognized the person on the cover of Madden.

I have no idea who Peyton Hillis is.

So the gamespot dude ask the madden developer what was your focus on this years version.

Madden developer - This year we focused on the core gameplay, and listened to what the fans wanted.  He immediately transisitions to showing the game, and says, I'm going to show you my favorite part of the game.... Broadcast Presentation...

UMMMM, really? You consider the presentation the core game?  I mean how bout finally building an AI that doesn't cheat, or how bout time management, how bout franchise AI/Features?

this year they've programmed any bugs not to kick in until a month after release.

Same here.  Last year was the first time since the early 90s I did not buy Madden.

Hopefully they'll reign in the offense in this year's edition.  I regretted buying last year's version.

Well tried the demo.  No announcers which is normal for the demo, so the atmosphere of the game felt off.  However while they added new splash graphics, it's the same broken shit.  They can't even do replays and highlights correctly.  Every replay/highlight is shown half way into the play, some times the last second of the play.   Just feels disjointed.  After seeing the bullet points of features earlier this year, my suspicions have been validated.  If I do end up playing it's it's either going to be a gift/rental or a heavy sale.

Sounds like Madden.  With no competition for the license, there's no reason to be innovative.  Also, the majority of people that play this game just want stuff that looks cool.   They don't care if it simulates a real football game.

no, you know how to run, but you do it like a girl, so you really need to learn to run like a man.

Backbreaker physics on my iphone seem better than Madden physics on the console...or at least the animations seem more lifelike.  I know the horse has been pummeled far into the earth, but playing the backbreaker minigames on the iphone and 360 makes me wish nostalgically for a modern 2k5.  The best thing to happen to EA's NHL series was the competition from NHL 2k.  EA lost for a few years, and then figured out a way to get their shit together, and now we have probably the best sports game on the market as result several years running.   

This will most likely be the first year that I haven't purchased any football game since the early 90s also.  The industry innovation just isn't there.  Without competition, don't you think EA will milk that engine until the new generation of consoles launch?

It's more of a prance or sashay, but yeah, I did mean in the game.


[Edit to add..]
Played last night and sort of enjoyed it. Wasn't angered by anything and it seemed to play quick and fun. IN!

8.5 from Gametrailers, with the final call being it needed a little bit more time in the oven.  they also do a comparison of 360 vs PS3 graphics for those wondering.  I was kinda tempted again this year (especially with the $20 Amazon credit) but I think I'll pass for now.

Isn't that the problem every year with Madden?

To be fair to all sports games, a one year development cycle is ridiculously short, especially for a game with no real 'predetermined path'.  I'm not saying bugs are a good thing, just saying that given their constraints it's not at all surprising.

Fair enough, but from what I read every year around the time Madden comes out, there are some issues that have been carrying over year to year for a while, such as the inability of the CPU to run a two minute offense logically. EA doesn't fix seemingly basic components of the engine, but they have time to add extra chrome and other assorted fluff each year.

Oh well. The last time I bought Madden was something like 3 or 4 years ago so I am hardly qualified to say. Maybe some of the more hardcore Madden guys around here can comment once they get the game and try it out. I did download and play the demo and I will admit that it looks quite nice in terms of graphics.

I'd bet that stuff is much, much harder to fix and it doesn't sell as many copies as chrome and fluff do, I'm afraid.

My favorite thing in the last few years is something most people probably hate. The computer picking your plays. LOVE IT!

Instead of scrolling through 300 plays, they grab something that probably is good for the situation and I run it.

I'm all for simulation and the strategy of football, but I prefer playing to coaching.

Saves time too.
