There are tons of opinions about Madden NFL 17, each with it's own merits, but we at MaddenUniversity.com would like to offer a historical, philosophical, and metaphysical critique of why Madden NFL 17 is the best and worst Madden yet to be developed.
Since the debut of online play developers have attempted to design Madden in such a way to limit the learning curve to attract new customers, provide an aesthetically pleasing approximation of what we see in the NFL to woo existing customers, and the tactical freedom and control required to maintain die-hard customers. Oddly, EA's attempts to please each of these groups tend to fall short of the mark.
In this episode of Gamefilm, TNT713's Panthers face off against gee35056's Steelers in a hard fought game with unique scores, defensive battles, and explosive offensive plays. The game goes back and forth, through all four quarters, until a defining moment occurs deep into the fourth. Be sure to watch until the end to see the exciting finale to this ranked online game.
Madden changes every year, but some things remain constant like the thrill of the competition that drives players to keep playing year after year. To celebrate our rich diversity, MaddenUniversity.com's Community Spotlight wants to offer our gratitude to players to work tirelessly to enhance the Madden experience for others. This Spotlight features Raymond Goode, aka Shopmaster from MyMaddenPad.com and MaddenWars.com where Madden players can find a social network of Madden players or unique team league style game play.
ShopMaster and I met in Orlando at an EA Community Day a few years back. His passion for Madden was apparent from the beginning but his reputation preceeded him. Founder of one of the most unique leagues, MaddenWars.com uses a team style system where players battle for flags in modes that keep members on their toes. MyMaddenPad.com, also run by Shopmaster, features a unique social experience for Madden fans. We spoke to ShopMaster about how his passion developed, how family life affects his Madden time, and why SIM players could have an advantage over some tourney players.
