A small disclaimer before we get started. Please pardon my indulgence. There was once a day when first person shooters did not rule the video gaming world. I tend to remember these days most fondly. Before the days of smart phones, when we all still had home phones, the multiplayer action was found via couch co-op. It has been my experience that no one franchise brought friends together on a couch more than Madden NFL Football. While the days of couch co-op – and the odd little yellow piece in EA’s Sega cartridges – are far behind us, the experience that is Madden NFL 13 hearkens back to that glorious time.
