anyone whos anyone who loves football knows about Madden and the dreaded Madden Curse that happens to all players who grace the cover of this lovely and time killing game. haha!

my question is:

who would you like to see on the cover of Madden 2010?
-- i would like to see Troy Polamalu, James Harrison, or Hines Ward. BUT, if the Madden Curse exists, i don't want a Steeler on the cover. so, i'd say Adrian Peterson, Matt Ryan, or Drew Brees.

who do you think EA Sports will put on the cover?
-- i think EA will probably go with Tony Romo or Terrell Owens just because they know it'll be the easiest pick. but was Vince Young the easiest pick? seriously?

if the Madden curse is real, who would you LOVE to see on the cover?
-- i would LOVE to see Tony Romo and Owens on the cover...just so that curse can come back and kick them right in the hole. haha!

Tom Brady, so he can screw up his other knee.

On a side note, do Madden games seem to be getting worse instead of betteR?

Madden games are getting ALOT harder and sort of a waste of time to play. it's like you have to have six thumbs to even get the game going in your direction! haha!

i have a thing called "Madden F*ckery!" it's a phenomenon in which no matter how hard you try, the opponent ALWAYS scores and makes some ungodly comeback to rub it in your face. plus, it's impossible to block punts and rush for over 200 yards and have under 30 carries. -- the games aren't getting BETTER...they're getting more realistic and it's retardedly (is that a word?) harder.

i dunno...i'm sort of over playing Madden. give me Metal Gear Solid or Gears of War anyday. =)

no kidding. i think they are trying too hard to make the game as realistic as possible, but it's so flawed and glitched. it's really frustrating to play...so much so that;s it's really not even fun anymore. -- a total time killer anymore. na'mean?

Maybe you just blow at Madden. I play the game and have since '00 and there are alwways more controls and buttons to make the game and reactions more realistic.

Actually...if we are talking Madden experience, I played the original on the PC back in, 89' I think?

Anyway, I was great at Madden in HS and college, and even in my 20's...the games look pretty now, but they are more difficult to master if you don't have the time to play them. I don't anymore, so I stay away from online games and play on normal difficulty. The wife starts giving me the evil eye if I start delving into more then 2 hours of continuous play these days!

I do notice that the "fun" part of playing Madden is lower for me then it was, oh, pre 2001. They look better and have more features, but, I don't know, maybe it's just that I am getting older and losing interest.

I think the best NFL video game fun I had last was with 2k5 on the Xbox...that was a fun game to play.

NCAA games are still fun. Not sure what it is about the Madden games, though. I tend to think Madden's Golden Era was like 95 to 98.

Does anyone remember how fun Super Techmo Bowl was to play? That game rocked and it had two buttons and like 4 plays!

Im just kidding man i used to suck as well, but lots and lots of losing and practice makes you learn how to straggle and pick a strategy of defense and offense that works best for you.:drink:

I haven't played this year's as much but last year I was up to year 10 franchise mode.

I used to play online a bunch on the 360. I went random team and had a real good record, something like 70 - 30 or somewhere in that range (I think) but then as the game had been out longer the quality of opponents started to drop and either I would just kill the guy and he'd quit by halftime or people would do things like put Tom Brady in for the Patriots (Even though he's "injured" you can still place him in the game and he retains his 99 overall rating) and just bomb it to Moss every game. Therefore I quit playing online... Now when play Madden I just play franchise. I find it to be more fun anyway. I love putting my philosophy onto a roster. You know what I mean? Like building a godly defense through signing huge name players and the draft. Then trying to win with second tier offensive players. Like having a Nate Washington as your number one receiver and some career backup tailback as your featured ball carrier. I don't know lol, it's just fun to do stuff like that and see which ways you can win. Or something else I want to try for my next franchise is acquiring the most beastly offensive line I could dream up and see how my offense could run with it. Some of it sounds silly but it is a heck of a lot of fun to run an NFL franchise, even if it's by yourself at home for hours a night on a video game console... lol. The off-season is always my favorite part of the year :banging:

dont feel weird, thats my favorite part of it too, generally thats wat ill do too after i get a little bored of the sometime bullcrap gameplay of madden, ill jus start a franchise and then jus build up my own dynasty. i do that in most of the sport games i do, and ill never be a Pittsburgh team (except for the pirates since they could use the help)

and people are like that online for every game, they dont care about playing REAL whatever you are playing they will find a way to exploit some part of the game

Yeah I never play with a Pittsburgh franchise either. I like playing as teams that need ultimate rebuilding.

Ah! i was tempted to re-buy Madden 09, i kind of miss just playing a football game and being the Steelers, but i know i will probably regret it if i do.

As for next years cover, i think the Cowboys are doing a nice job of unraveling without the need of a curse.

Peterson looks a good choice.

I love playing madden. But it comes in fazes. I will go on s strectch where I play daily then I go on a stretch where I dont play for a long time. I guess I mostly play during football season. But I love the progression of the game.

This year in madden sucks and does not make any sense. To be successful in madden this year especially online you have to play zone all the time if you play man you will be screwed by a crossing route and get burnt for a big play. It gets boring picking the same zone plays over and over and when you blitz most offensive lines are godly and it is very difficult to get any sacks in my Steeler seasons I'm lucky if I have more then 10 sacks.

On another note I picked up Madden 06 for PS2 last week and it is a lot more fun to play and there was a lot of stuff to do in the game that is missing now. I enjoy collecting madden cards and completing all of the mini camps.

I do miss the Madden cards and the special teams the Tiburon guys invented--the Mummies, the Roman Centurions, the Aztecs, the Country Marshalls, the Frankenstein Monsters, etc. Oh, I can't forget the Sugarbuzz Cereal Guys. Plus the throwback teams like the 85 Bears, the 88 49ers, and so on. For the $60 you plunk down for the game, you expect a few extra frills.

Aslong as it is,nt a Ratbird,Bungle or Clown then i don,t really care if it,s not a Steeler..Just not our rivals.

If a Steeler would be on it would either be Harrison for DPOTY, Holmes for Super Bowl 43 MVP, or Troy for well being Troy! Remember im a true believer of the Madden curse, so if no Steeler makes it I wont lose any sleep.
