Is Madden Monopoly the NFL's Fault?

Ever since 2005, EA and most notably Madden, has been the only way to get NFL action. But EA is not the only exclusive deal that the NFL has made a bed with.

i blame the gamers that run out and buy this game every year. if they stop supporting EA and their BS maybe Ea will start doing right by this franchise and start listening to the fans of the sport.

I stopped playing madden many many years ago.

I wish that stupid NFL license would run out so we can get some proper NFL video games.

P.S. the Madden Curse is REAL!

That's why I'm glad the NBA 2k series is the best/most bought basketball game out there.

Its the fucking kids man. They don't even know 2k5 existed. Most people I know who go crazy over the acradey BS madden are teens. They do like 2k12 more than NBA live and its a shame cause 2K would be doing the same thing with football now. NFL EA exclusivity put a big hole in this gen of games for me.

EA's sales on Madden have been declining each year. But EA was smart because they got the exclusive right before the PS3 and 360 came out. I'd still be playing NFL2K if there was a next gen version of it.

It's not so much a fault as much as the NFL doesn't care and EA isn't giving up a monopoly.

its a shame the last good Madden game was 2004. its a shame that 2K5 was the last proper NFL game. its a shame how sports game turned out this gen.

I beg to differ. I had a blast with 2005 and the hit stick

It's the NFL fault for the monopoly of the license/poor Madden games every year
