... because I think about what could have been had EA not bought the exclusive rights to the NFL license. That game (NBA 2k13) is superb in ways that EA could only fantasize about.

It's not surprise EA cancelled their NBA Live series.. they can't compete against real talent.

FUCK YOU EA!

When does the NFL exclusive contract end; or did they sign an extension?

 

 I will never forget playing NFL2k5 (the last one with T. Owens on the cover) and playing a season. They cut to ESPN desk with C. Burgman and he is talking about the injury of the season and that was P. Manning going out for the year with some injury. A buddy had just walked into our place from Indianoplis and loved the Colts. He about shti himself when he heard it; he then realized it was a game.

Sadly, they renewed the exclusivity until 2017. So we are stuck with the lame Madden games for the foreseeable future.

Madden 13 is the worst football game I've played in years. EA is getting progressively worst every year, and they don't give a shit because idiots (like me) will continue to buy their crap because it's the only NFL game in town. They aren't giving up that license anytime soon knowing this.

As I said, playing NBA 2k13 and comparing it to something like Madden, there is a bigger gap in terms of realism, looks both technological and artistic, presentation, than there is between current gen FPS and last gen FPS. The gap really is MASSIVE in terms of how much better the 2k games are than the EA Sports titles.

Even NFL Fever 2002 (Original Xbox only) was better than Madden IMO. That was the first game iirc to implement the changing of player stats after every game.  Madden is garbage IMO

How is that not a monopoly? I guess the NFL can sell their rights to whoever they want, but that really sucks a big bag of dicks. Phone Post

I had this same talk with some friends online last night. 2k5 was the goat football game. I remember 2k did all of their games for $20 one year. Fuck you ea and your sub par football game. Phone Post

ESPN NFL 2K5 forever!!!!!

Absolutely loved that game. APF 2K8 was a decent offering using the same engine, but it was seriously lacking in features, and not having real NFL teams was a killer. I keep buying Madden every year and I guess I've learned to just enjoy it for what it is. I'd really like to see them do some real innovation in that series though. Maybe next generation they will, but I doubt it.

2k12 had Jordan on the cover.

 

NBA 2k13 is by far my favourite sports game. It's an incredible game.

I have a friend who is such a Madden ball licker it is ridiculous. He's one of those people who just regurgitates stuff he hears and he's always telling me how Madden "isn't a game, it's a football simulation."

Last Madden I played was 07 and I thought it was decent, nothing special though. I'm not a huge football fan but I always had way more fun playing the NFL2k series.

EA in general is a talented but arrogant company. I thought EA MMA and Fight Night Champion were both top notch games, but then they slowly released patches which ruined the gameplay in both. And they have done this with previous games.

I mean serious like WTF? Is that some sort of strategy to increase sales on sequels? Because some of the changes are just mindblowingly dumb and I have trouble believing people at EA did not know that when they released them.

I have always preferred Pro Evolution Soccer. I feel like the dribbling is especially better in PES.

Fifa has gotten better over the past few years. 04-07 were some of the worst sports games ever made imo.
