I noticed that there isn't a lot of Video game talk other than Madden talk. So I figured I would try to get some stuff going.

I'm a HUGE gamer and I was wondering who here had a 360/PS3 or both.

I own both. 360 for gaming and as a media center PC in the main TV room...PS3 for almost exclusively Blu Ray.

360 here. Can't afford both, and for gaming the 360 seems like it has more options. Playing the COD 5 beta at the moment. I have the new Madden, but it is such an atrocity that I would rather not play it.

I bought the new madden, like a dummy, and played it a few times....it just didn't give me the same football feel as NCAA does.

They keep repackaging the same crappy game engine. It just lacks the feel of a fun football game. I think presentation values add so much to the fun and that game has very little.

Yeah it is a bit ridiculous. Didn't change one bit of franchise mode or made any major improvements. Then there is the 'Madden Test' it's a decent idea but should not be turned into or promoted as one of the game's great additions.

Can be hard at times to have a decent game online aswell & i don't understand if a player disconnects/quits you need to then play the rest of the game against the CPU in order to get a W.

Nothing is technically wrong other then the fact that it has changed very little in the last 5 years.

That happens when you buy out the competition and don't have to worry about raising the bar...just release a roster update and add a "new feature" (that was available back in '05 on the first Xbox) to the 360 and call it a day.

stop yo bitching...

So you think a good football game is one where:

a) A running back is able to run over people without slowing down or altering his path AT ALL

b) A defensive back will leap 8 feet into the air and swat a ball down that he wasn't even looking at

c) A defensive back will jump up to make a play on the ball, miss, and have the magical ability to make the tackle in midair

d) Defensive linemen are able to shed blocks without any trouble whatsoever. It is like all the teams in the NFL have the Steelers line

I could go on like this for ages. I have owned every Madden since around 2000 and there has been a steady downhill trend in the gameplay. They have focused more on the blades of grass and what you want to sell hotdogs for at your stadium then remembering that this actually should look, feel, and play like a game of football.

This isn't football, this is crap. If the blind fanboys would take notice of this and make themselves heard, or stop buying this crap, EA would be forced to make a decent product. Right now, with no competition, they can squeak by if they just throw out any old crap with Madden(insert year here) on the cover.

If there was only one car company make one car, do you think it would be any good?

idk bout u but when i do happen to run ppl over.. my path is altered and i am slowed down...

rly 8 feet?? stop being stupid and u can tell that the jumping abilty is legit

if the db goes up for the ball and happens to contact the wr.. that would be considered a hit

and there are times in the nfl where d-line can shed blocks real easy...

rly 8 feet?? stop being stupid and u can tell that the jumping abilty is legit Yes, you can't get a max vertical jump while running and still keeping up with the wide receiver, WRONG thanks for playing (basic physics you would travel diagonally and not vertically)

if the db goes up for the ball and happens to contact the wr.. that would be considered a hit wrong...that would be "contact" , but you wouldn't be laying anyone out. Without your feet planted on the ground you have very little power and strength. Again, thanks for playing

and there are times in the nfl where d-line can shed blocks real easy...Yes, at times, but not every play. Unless you are playing on rookie your RB will be contacted in the backfield/in the hole on every single play

again stop yo bitching I don't understand why you have such a sour attitude. I am just trashing a video game, I am not taking shots at your mommy or anything.

You know it really makes you look stupid when there is tons of video evidence against your point of view (do you even watch any of the videos?):

I can't tell you how many times I have seen this in the NFL. <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/JNMl8LMwVJo&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/JNMl8LMwVJo&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

after playing Madden 09 i made that decision not to play.

Sadly there are too many blind followers of the game and people will lineup outside the stores to pick up there copy at midnight.

i gotta agree with both sides on this pointless agruement, it seems that madden has gotten worse over the past few games, and their is really no reason to bitch about it. Just dont buy it next year, im not. some of the points black and gold said i have noticed in the game. jus about every play the DL is in my backfield, i brushed it off thinking dam this is realistic (i was playing as the steelers). i had a DL intercept a pass i was trying to throw 20 yards down the field and i LOBBED it.

oh well, i played it a few days thought it was crapped, took it to gamestop and got the full price back.

Another thing unrealistic on madden, just send a receiver with high speed rating on a streak route and 8 out of 10 times he's gonna catch it

Totally sucks at times, and EA should really improve them. I enjoy playing madden sometimes, but I know I gotta be prepared for the most unrealistic plays ever. I have madden 08 and I'll be using this one for a long time.

Great videos btw. I had noticed that before, but it's good to see it slowly on video

MAdden has lost some luster, but everyone bickering back and forth...the Madden haters and the fanboys...is pointless. Some like the game for what it is, some don't. You can't please everyone.

Probably negligable. But I have both systems and I have noticed that the 360 has slightly sharper graphics for me. And, some of EA's sports games run at a higher refresh rate...like NCAA last year, on the 360.

Other then that, gameplay is similar. DIfferences lie in the controller layout. I prefer the 360 controller for sports games.

That really is not a well thought out response. There are plenty of games I "suck" at but still really enjoy. It is possible that people don't like the design decisions, or lack thereof, that EA has made with Madden in recent years. And, yes, there is a cult following who will buy it at midnight every release date no matter how good it is.

That's not true. I suck at a lot of games that I still like. Call of Duty (4 and WAW) come to mind. I almost always win when I am playing Madden, so its not that I am a sore loser. There are just some major flaws with it as far as gameplay and realism that I have already provided examples of. To me, it no longer has the "feel" of football, it just feels broken. It almost feels like "shock" football. Especially when one of your offensive linemen is running in circles in the backfield.

If you like it, cool, enjoy it. Though if you can't handle someone pointing out the flaws in your favorite game without getting upset, there is a problem. Point being I love Call of Duty World at War, but the spawn points on multiplayer are terrible and there are some real issues with hit detection at times. Sometimes I will shoot a guy in the foot and it will register as a headshot, other times I shoot someone point blank in the chest with a shotgun and it doesn't even register.

Here are a few more examples for you to dispute:

So it isn't biased to even watch videos that are proving my side of the debate?

Whether or not it is "sad" that a person took the time to make these videos is irrelevant to this discussion.

It also isn't a matter of "twisting" anything to fuel a theory. It is video evidence of the flaws in the game, nothing more, nothing less.

Well, what is considered "sad" is quite objective here. One could also be considered "sad" for having too much time to devote to playing the games and mastering them thus having very little or no constructive social life. :noidea:

Not calling anyone in particular sad, I can't make that judgement.

Just pointing out that it is hard to really consider any of these things sad. On one hand, you have someone who is unhappy with a product for certain reasons, and then tries to show their frustrations by supplying a video to back up their claims. On the other, you have someone who plays the game and loves it regardless....each spends their time how they see fit.

Which one is sad or not, is completely subjective to your point of view. It's all opinion.

Using another example, my brother thinks it is sad that people waste so much time in forums posting. He is as big a Steeler fan as anyone but thinks forums are "stupid" and a "waste of time." Ok, that's fine, but the things he does with his time could be looked at the same way from someone else's perspective. That being said, I am member #651 and have about 1300 posts. Quite a bit...and it took a while to get there. There are others on this board that joined long after I did and have 10000 posts. Unfathomable to me...but I don't want to go so far as to call them "sad".

Wow...Madden 04? Interesting. I thought 05 was pretty decent...the last one I played for the regular X-Box....all of the ones on the "Next Gen" consoles have been crap, IMO. Playing feature catch up.

On this note, it's amazing that they can charge $59 every year to add features they took out when they went to the PS3/360. I find it hilarious.

Yeah, the big "feature" for Madden 09 was the "juke stick". So when you move quickly left, you juke left, and vice versa. Too bad they had that in 2k5 and probably before then...

09 big "feature" is not the juke stick.. if i remember correctly they had what it is now in the versions of 08 and maybe 07..

the big "thing" in this edition was that the Game adapts to you.

I thought in 08' and 07' you used one stick to run and the other to juke and what not...

In this on you use the same stick you use to run, but if you move it quickly left or right you juke...

Regardless, it was done back on 2k5 if not in earlier versions of 2k.

Argh! I just got back from playing a buddy online (I was the Steelers, he was the Eagles) and Westbrook is unstoppable. He isn't very good at Madden so he either runs it up the gut, or does a long bomb.

When I knew he was running up the gut I would do a pinch out of the 3-4 and also bunch my linemen up in the middle. I would then take Casey Hampton and proceed to get trucked over and dragged for 5 yards by Westbrook!

On the long bomb plays I would highlight who I though was his hot receiver (which I was usually right) and he would throw into triple coverage and still come up with the ball 90% of the time.

AARGH!!! :banging:

that sucks and yet funny, westbrook dragging hampton for 5 yards. hampton would eat him whole!!! the only time i play madden is when im at my brother's house, which he is one of those gifted 'gamers' he can pick up a game and in less than a hour he is already really good at it. the only games i know i can own him in is NPPL chamionship paintball (cant do multiplayer on the same xbox so we havent been able to play each other but im in the top 10 in that game so i know i can handle him), Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe and NHL 09 other than that anything else we play he will OWN me

One of the biggest issues with the 09 Madden and NCAA are horrible D line play. You can't get any pressure on the QB with them and they have a tendency to get eaten alive in the ground game.

It is either that, or the exact opposite.

Either D-linemen are getting trucked over, or they are in the backfield taking the hand off. There isn't a "happy medium" between the two.
