Excerpt: They say that football is a game of inches. That it's won and lost in the trenches and not by the flashy plays that make the highlight reels. The same could be said then for Madden . The long running football series is built year after year by small improvements, rather than game changing new features (I'm looking at you quarterback vision cone).
Excerpt: Imagine this: There is a box. Inside is a chessboard, a deck of Pokémon cards, the yellow grid from a Connect Four set, a handful of Monopoly pieces, a Dungeons & Dragons Player’s Handbook with the index and glossary torn out, a NOW That’s What I Call Music! compilation, and some magazine advertisements for Gatorade. All these pieces can be used to play a game based around the NFL, but not the game of football.
