There's still people updating the rosters on ESPN NFL 2K5 to current NFL rosters.

I hate that EA has the NFL locked down. It's pretty obvious Madden is nothing but a cash cow for EA and they don't care so much about making the game better and adding new features as they do about forcing a new copy out yearly so they can make that $$$. It really is the Call of Duty of sports games.
It is exactly the same story with their FIFA soccer games. The reason for this is that there are some people who only buy two or three games per year; CoD, Madden, and/or FIFA, regardless of good or bad reviews.

So the Devs won't change their formulae too much for fear of alienating their core player base.

I long for the days of NFL 2k5. Better than any Madden game that cane before it or after. Ea Sports =monopoly=monotony

I think it says a lot that there's still people playing 2K5 and updating it with modern rosters. For people to go to those lengths... just reinforces the fact that Madden blows.
