Hey Sports Games, How About a Tutorial For the Uninitiated?

Dick Ward writes: "I love sports games. Or at least I used to. Back in the days of ‘Tecmo Super Bowl,’ I loved them all. ‘Blades of Steel’ was my favorite, and I don’t think I’d ever watched hockey in my life when I got that game. Those games were easy to understand and just plain fun to play. I’ve still got a group of four that gets together on occasion for some ‘Tecmo Super Bowl’ action. We start up a season and play it right through. But that’s about where it ends for me, because modern sports games are far too complex." (Madden 11, Madden NFL 08, PS3, Xbox 360)

So I guess Madden took out the Madden IQ thing from 2009?

I really liked that feature being I could destroy the computer through the air...but they would just do the same thing back to me =/.

Made the same seem more even
