Excerpt: Remember when the differences between one year's version of Madden and the next year's version were worth waiting for? For example, the upgrade from Madden NFL '98 to Madden NFL '99 that brought the game out of the darkness of sprite-based graphics was well worth the money.

Excerpt: John Madden er en kjent fotballkommentator og tidligere proffspiller i den amerikanske proffligaen NFL (National Football League).
