Who's Gone Over to Dark Side? (Madden)

Recommended Posts

My son recently bought Madden 16 for Xbox One.  It's my first time playing it since my super Nintendo days.  I have to say the passing is really good and enjoyable.  Having a different button associated with different receivers makes alot more sense.  But, the running still feels bad.  It feels plastic-ee and laggy.  Switching directions takes too long and takes the fun out of it.

Has anyone else gotten a taste of the dark side (newer Maddens)?  If so, what are your thoughts?

I played it online for a few years around 2009. It was full of audibles and players always exploited glitches, I was turned off pretty quickly. Played about .500 ball online. Found online Tecmo and never looked back. For me, there wasn't much variable to the play outcomes which is very counter-intuitive to the depth of programming involved. I had the most fun playing the computer at the hardest level and trying to compete. Furthermore, the community is really immature that's why I prefer hanging out with you old guys! ;)


And for the sake of Tecmo, F Madden!!!

I played in an online league in 2005. The league was / is legit and has evolved. Made some food friends. Commish does a long running podcast called the Madden Voice. 

Nice! That was probably my mistake, not getting into a league and just playing pickup games in the wild west.

      Does anyone have access to the Tecmo Bowl Kickoff instruction manual?
      I can't find any pdf's or anything through google.

      Will Koei Tecmo ever release a new version of this game for PC, Xbox or playstation?  Or is that impossible because Madden has a monopoly on the NFL license?
      One can always dream...maybe they can release a new updated game, with updated graphics and mechanics and just have an easy way to update rosters and plug in pics for the helmets?  So, people could easily put in the new NFL roster without having Koei Tecmo pay for it or deal with it?

      I absolutely love this version!  Old legends plus new great players, incredible concept!  There was some serious love put into this edition.  This is the greatest version of the game I've ever played.  All my friends I've shown this to, love it.  But the first thing they ask when we play it is "Where's Bo Jackson"?
      I don't understand why he's left out.  He was the great player in the original Tecmo Bowl.  Is he a hidden player maybe?

      Welcome to TB32 49ers Playoff teams!
      This was just a pet project of mine.  I'm a big 49'ers fan and since my Niners have not been to the playoffs in 3 years and may not get there again this year, I have put together this ROM with all of the 49'ers playoff teams since 1970.  
      This ROM provides
      All 24 49'ers playoff teams since 1970.  All of the opponents the 49'ers lost to in the championship game or Superbowl since 1983. (83 Washington, 90 NY, 92 Dallas, 93 Dallas, 97 Green Bay, 11 NY, 12 Baltimore and 13 Seattle). The 70's teams that took Dallas to the brink only to lose in the Championship game and watch Dallas go on to win a Superbowl The Team of the 80's! Young's 49'ers (Could he best Montana or was Joe Cool that damn good?) Replays of heartbreaking Championship games! Replay that Super Bowl against Baltimore!  
      Any how this was just a fun project that I put together. Even if you are not a 49'ers fan check it out maybe it will open you up to some history you didn't know about.
      If you see anything that needs fixing let me know!
