Hardcore Gamer: "The idea to name this year’s Madden “Madden NFL 25” seems misguided. As EA decided to ditch the millennia part of the year with Madden 10, we’ve had four games now with double-digit numbers. Logically, that would mean that 2024’s Madden game would be named “Madden 25.” So not only does seeing the title take you aback (even still days before launch), but it’s also going to make the title of Madden really confusing in eleven years. Why not simply call it “Madden 14” and put “25th Anniversary” under it? It’s a confounding marketing blunder to be sure, but luckily, there’s a great game of football underneath the confusing title."
