First year ever that I did not buy NCAA. Way back to the Bill Walsh and College Football USA days. And every madden since the Genesis original.

Disclaimer I did not have the Master System true original.

I'll end up passing on this, first time I don't own a football game in more than a decade. I just prefer NHL/FIFA for my sports games, and its pretty much the same as Madden 13, few animation changes, a bit smoother gameplay, probably a good game in its own right. I just wasn't that into Madden last year for some reason, and ended up selling it a few months after purchase. With all the games coming out in the next month or two, there will be plenty to play..

Total War: Rome 2
NHL/FIFA
GTA

All in September.

After playing the game more, I'm really liking owner mode and the changes to the game. I think I'll hold off on it though until xb1, but if in had the money I'd pick this up.

This will be the first time in 25 years that I'm not buying Madden. I downloaded the early release with my Season Ticket, and was utterly disappointed. Graphics looked like they took a step backward, it looked like a beta release with some stuff. I put it on default All-Madden, 12 minute periods with accelerated clock and slow gamespeed and after going up 35-0 barely into the 2nd quarter, I turned the game off. Same old, same old. RIP Madden, looks like I can focus on NHL only this year.

Question, will someone with Madden 25 on the 360 be able to play Madden 25 with a guy who has the XB1 version? I'm guessing no, but thought I would ask....

If it's definitely no, then I think I may pass on Madden this year and get it next year when most people have their next gen consoles.

I really enjoyed my time with the Owner mode during Early Release. I'm not so sure I'll be picking it up right away, but it may be something I'll save for the holidays of sorts.

First Madden I've picked up on release day since probably 2007-08 range. Might regret not waiting for a holiday price drop, but Early Release really won me over. I wasn't too impressed with the past couple of Maddens, but something just won me over.
