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:

There is just too much to dispute here. If this was a court room, it would be all over!

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.

I bet my wife feels that way with the amount of hours I put into Medieval 2 Total War!

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".

If you would have actually watched the videos Madden is his preferred football game. He states that Madden 04 is the best football game ever made, and that 2k5 comes in at a close second.
