I'm a busy guy. So I really want to enjoy the time off that I do have with a good game. So basically I wanted to be fair to both franchises that are worth looking at in the virtual pigskin universe. Long story short, I gave ESPN and Madden a try for about a month apiece. ( I've been a Madden guy all my life anyway, but I wanted to be fair.) And Madden has emerged victorious. For a realistic, true football feel, this is the game. You can't take a mediocre football game, throw in some ESPN imagery, and expect realists to like it. I'm back on the Madden scene for good. I'll see you all online.
