I called the PS2, Xbox, and GameCube version of Madden 08 the “last great madden”, meaning it was the last Madden title released that I would label “great”. I called Madden 12 the “last good madden”, meaning it was the last Madden title released that I would label “good”. Now I’ve finally gotten to Madden 25, the “last half decent madden”. I don’t think 25 was great, or even good. But many people remember the game fondly due to how far madden has fallen off in recent years.

Frostbite ruined Madden, they should have stuck with Ignite. Ignite had much better AI and gameplay.

EA should’ve never started using the Frostbite engine for Madden.

One of the most underrated features of all time was draft champions. Everyone would get to play with a team they drafted. It was completely free and super fun. But now it is pay to win and you have to grind on ultamite team just to play it. A small feature from madden 16 they ruined

EA Sport's needs to go back to using a physics based engine for Madden and with the current crop of consoles there should be no excuse.

"Probably the closest a Madden game has ever gotten to being realistic" ... That's kind of the most important part and probably why I liked it.

Madden 04 was my favorite. Mike Vick was straight up unstoppable.

Seeing the presentations before a game of madden 25 almost makes me cry now. It is just so sad that the presentation now are lifeless. Unbelievable
