well said Agt_Fox. Most people who bash Madden is because they have some hatred of EA.  They don't admit it, they roll back on "oh, there's nothing new on EA, it's practically the same game"  Well you can say the same thing about the ESPN series and any other Football series out there.  You rarely see a huge revolution of any sports game from one year to the next.  One major reason is the engine.  Sports games in general will typically use the same engine for 2-3 years before starting from scratch.  This is mainly because they don't have time to make new engines every year after year.  They don't have the luxury of other non sport devolpers who can take 2-3 years to make a new engine.  
Think about it for a while, I doubt you can name more than 3 non-games/franchises that releases a sequel every year.  

ESPN has many good things about it, mostly on the presentation side, while Madden has many good things about it as well, mainly on the gameplay.  I think next year, there will be a major step ahead for the franchise since they will now have the proper time to add in the ESPN and NFL licenses.  Not only that, they have the Xbox 360 now.  More options are now available to them.

Quote from: "Nick Bean"
naednek I am going to have to disagree with you big time on this one. Although EA has certain way of putting out the same game over and over, Fight Night and Tiger Woods are amazing. People knock Madden because there have been better football games on the market since QB Club on the N64. When the 2K series started on Dreamcast, the fellas at EA really started looking stupid. Madden has been riding on its name for 10 years (97-06). People don't love the game, they love the name and guys on the cover. I did however buy Madden because those bastards gave me no other choice. I wish Visual Concepts would sign back on with EA and take the best from both games and turn Madden back in to the football Juggernaut it once was.


If you could combine ESPN and Madden then that would make a perfect football game.  ESPN was great for the atmosphere, Madden was great for gameplay.

I loved ESPN 2K4 over Madden 2k4.  ESPN 2K5 was purty, but it didn't play a good game of football, like the previous year.

So, I'm not incredibly biased, I've followed and played more of the Madden series than any other football games.  But to say nothing has changed from the previous years is a bit rediculous.  EA has always added  new features that changes the game from the previous year.  Madden isn't perfect, but overall it does a good job.
4164  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Madden 2k6 on: August 09, 2005, 12:53:45 PM
don't see how a "8.2" is considered blowing it.  As they have said many times before, next years version will have the changeover.  They were already too far into development when they acquired the NFL rights.  They added some stuff to this years, but next year you should see more of a change, with new NFL exclusive stuff, and the ESPN brand.

People bash Madden just for the sake of bashing, because it's made by EA.  Try the game before knocking it or praising it (yes I can take my own advice Tongue )

I can't wait for this game.  Last years was great, and this looks even better with the new features they've added.

And why you need a coop mode?  Maybe I'm understanding what you mean, but isn't this game basically coop, meaning you can team up with your friends and kill AI enemies or player controlled enemies

So that's why you refuse to admit that 2005 Madden was better than ESPN 2005.  You don't hate the game, you hate madden

Rumors are that the demo drops on Friday...for Gamespot Complete members only (I'm one, so this doesn't piss me off...but I'm sure it will many others).

The demo will go live on Saturday for the rest...remember, this is only rumor at this point.


finally after being a complete member, something pays off.

The Shield is great.  24 can be great at times, but doesn't come close to The Shield.  

Seasons 1-3 are great, I like season 2 the best.  Season 4 is a lot different feeling than the rest, but I think it's the weakest of the 4.  

Tell me when you get to the cat episode.  I won't say anything else.

I bet the main reason they are not showing much of the game, is because the film isn't out, and they want to avoid spoilers (assuming the game follows the movie)

The new logitech gamepads are almost identical to the PS2 dualshock controllers, so the difference is minimal.  I didn't have any problems with Psychonauts on the PC.


I will never use that gamepad again.  They have a known issue where the left analog stick goes out of calibration.  The only way to solve it is to replug it in, only for it to happen 20 mins later.  I used to use that for Madden/NBA Live and many other people have had the same issues.  Even logitech acknoledges it.

Leaving Senor El-Producto's sale thread for a moment...

Quote from: "naednek"
i always thought it was an option.

If I remember correctly it was not an option to post prices at GoneGold.  I'm not sure why other than they wanted it to basically be a trading site.  Sales were tolerated but not necessarily encouraged.

Here we want people to post prices.  We want any sales arranged via this site to be relatively straightforward.  We do not want people to encourage "bidding" on items so we do not allow "best offer" sales.  Obviously people can lower their prices if something doesn't sell.

As long as people keep sending me the kickbacks I'm happy.   :lol:   (kidding!)

And now back to our regularly scheduled sale thread by El-Producto!


No, I mean here.
