I've been playing Madden for a few years, and it seems like there are a lot of other brands popping up at the moment.

Are you playing any of the other football games? and if so, are they good?

My favorite NFL game has always been Madden until I played ESPN 2K5 last year. It blew Madden 05 out of the water (to me at least).

This year I have a strong feeling that Madden will be the number one NFL football game... I don't know why, I just have this feeling...

ESPN 2K5 was the best I've ever played.

ESPN 2K5 was the best I've ever played.

I loved 2K5, however I heard through the grapevine that EA sports bought the rights to all NFL names and trademarks. So if ESPN wants to make anymore games all they can use is made up names and the players numbers. Kind of sucks if true. So #34 for the Miami sharks up the middle is tackled by #56 of the tampa bay swashbucklers is more like it if you play ESPN 2K6. Not sure if true but hope not.

Madden has got to be the best football game out there. Each year Madden gets better and better (almost every year) and this new Madden(2006) will be the best one yet.

I don't know. I've really enjoyed Madden, but there are just things that make it unplayable. Like how your defense panics when you play a mobile QB. People can just cheese and run the same play over and over, it sucks. I think i'll try 2k5.

2k5 rocks, it is loads of fun and the graphics and colors are a lot more realistic IMO.

It's all about Madden. I've been playing it forever so I see no need to switch. Now that they have a monopoly on NFL games there is really no need to switch.

2k5 is alot better, more realistic, you can actually juke and use some moves in the running game, and its alot more realistic with when players tip balls and stuff. i wish that ea hadnt bought the nfl rights or else i wouldve become an espn nfl player instead of madden, hopefully madden can get their act together this year because i personally thought 2005 sucked, it is the exact same game as 2004 it seems, they also need to add more create a team options, like when you take the spot as say the browns, you were forced to have butch davis as coach and you couldnt create on, i bought the game and its addicting but i play only 2k5 now

i was a madden fanboy until last year

2K5 was the ultimate sim football game....graphics are 1,000 times better..presentation is better...the gameplay is better...madden is just rehashed year after year with a new gimmick or two to trick consumers....
