Madden NFL 09 is finally here, and GameDaily has already got a list of 20 things that drive them bonkers.
what a stupid list. deciding what system to buy it for? that's something that's driving you crazy? welcome to multi-platform gaming. you may have heard of it. it's been going on for a few years.
I hate gamedaily. They make too many lists. Concentrate on actual game journalism and not on dumb lists
#1 its a Football game!
Nice avatar!. LOL!!!
I have the new madden and to be quite honest NFL 2K5 is still better.
nfl2k5 is one of the most overrated games of all time. Half the reason it gets all the praise it does is b/c of all the hate for madden and ea. Yes 2k5 was a good game, and it did some things better than madden (better graphics, better franchise mode, better rushing gameplay) but the gameplay was flawed on so many levels. The d-line play was a joke, you could easily rack up 5-6 sacks per game just by finding a fast defensive end and rushing from the outside. The passing game had that same "floating" feel to it that all of the 2k football games had, and there were so many money plays you could run over and over for huge yardage. Just look at all pro football. It was built on basically the same engine, and had most of the same flaws and got killed by madden (and still would have gotten killed even if it had a nfl license). It might be just nostalgia, or ea/madden hate clouding judgment, but there is no way in hell 2k5 is a better football game than madden 09, or even madden 08 or 05.
You are missing the whole point. Yes NFL 2k5 had some flaws, and some that annoyed the crap out of me. Yet I have NEVER enjoyed playing a football GAME so much. It was a complete blast to play.
Stopped when I saw it was game daily. What a pathetic publication.
how about the freezing problems? ive been getting those every time. and about gamedaily's list, i hate sites that make you click "next" for each number. so annoying. why can't you just put them in one page or at least 5 per page. nobosy wants to click "next" 20 times.
It's all about the page hits...
Can I have those minutes of my life back?
That might have been the dumbest list I have ever read, I got through 8 of them
I'm sure that paper will get him a B in his JH English class... IDK what was worse... Madden 09... or that article... or EA Sports in general...
How about 1. The commentators make a lot of mistakes, saying I am on the 50 when I am on the 23. They said I had a TD on my last drive and I hadn't scored in 2 quarters! 2. Where is my ability to override CPU trades? I even offered Peyton Manning for Darren McFadden and the Raiders STILL said no... 3. If NCAA can have dynamic crowds, where are they in Madden?
Until they bring back and update the "ambulance that runs over players when picking up an injured player" into 3D glory, Madden will never find a place on my shelf. Seriously though, F*ck you EA for releasing a $60, visually enhanced roster update every year. And f*ck all you who continue to buy it. It's your fault for perpetuating the circle of crap that comes out of that creative black-hole known as the EA Sports division.
My #1 is the noobs who roll back and bomb passes every play. They'll go 4 downs on every play, throwing endzone passes on every play. They'll usually be playing a team with a great offense. Its just ridiculous, because this does not and cannot happen in the NFL. F'in madden.
