Sean Taylor in Madden 08

I was playing this yesterday and it felt so weird seeing 21 on the field, even in a video game. I really didn't know what to do... I know this is stupid. Just wanted to see if anyone else felt/noticed the same thing.

Re: Sean Taylor in Madden 08

I just got a Black Friday HDTV for my bedroom so Madden has pretty much been an every night addiction but it was definitely an awkward feeling playing Madden and knowing that 21 just.. doesn't exist on the field anymore.

It almost hurt.

Re: Sean Taylor in Madden 08

I know what you mean I was playing my girlfriend last night and Sean took 2 interceptions back for TDs and I almost cried. Because it hit me even harder that he will never be on the field again.

Re: Sean Taylor in Madden 08

I also played last night and didn't want to stop playing... I'm going to probably break down if they update a roster and I cant use him... I'm playing while I can so I can still play with him online...

For some reason, though.. .yesterday when I got online no one who was matched up with me wanted to play. Usually the first one or two people will play, but yesterday I had a hard time getting a game using the skins.

Every time i see his picture or watch a highlight video I get emotional... Playing with him is almost therapeutic, but very sad at the same time.

Re: Sean Taylor in Madden 08

Goodness I was thinking about him being missing from the '09 version, I play on keeping '08 as long as possible.

Just a thought, would it be good or bad to have Taylor on the cover of '09 as a tribute?

Re: Sean Taylor in Madden 08

I did think of Taylor on the cover of Madden but the Madden cover is never followed by good things. I know he is in a better place now but it's called the Madden Curse and the last thing I want is a curse on ST even if it wouldn't affect him the least.

I played Madden 08 the moment I got home from school after hearing the news I played a game against the Cowboys and I used ST in every facet of the game I could. I know I will be putting him in Madden 09, I couldn't play without him.

Re: Sean Taylor in Madden 08

I don't think I can play with him again since I will probably break down during the game. My friends told me that I need to play a franchise on the game and dedicate my season to him. It will be so freaking weird next year he want be on the game. Think about it he was probably going to be a top 2 safety on the game behind only Reed. It is a shame.

Re: Sean Taylor in Madden 08

The best thing about Madden is you can always create a player. ST can live on through Madden.

Re: Sean Taylor in Madden 08

I don't think I even want to play Madden yet. Seeing S.T on the game and knowing He will never play again sounds to depressing to me right now.

Re: Sean Taylor in Madden 08

Im in Iraq right now, using Gov computers, I can't watch any videos online so i cant watch any of his great highlight reals, any news cast except the quick 1 minute crap on TV, The only thing i have is Madden '08 on my PSP. Im 10-2, S.T has 15 sacks, 6 picks 2TDs, 3 Fumb Rec 1TD.

I dont know if i want to leave him in the game at the end of the season or what... this is going to suck when i get back to the states, and able to get Madden '09 for my 360, and he wont be in the game, I thought about creating myself, (usually at QB, But Instead) at Safety....

Re: Sean Taylor in Madden 08

its going to suck when the new roster update happens becasue they will take him out of the game. thats what they did with Dwill last year after he died, it was depressing.

Re: Sean Taylor in Madden 08

i played madden for the sole reason of playing with sean. I always play as sean when i play. It has always been fun playing as him. I can't explain it. It feels better when sean gets an int instead of another player, even in the game.

Re: Sean Taylor in Madden 08

I won't play him again. It just felt bittersweet. It's bad enough that everytime a game is loading and it shows the hints or whatever about hit stick, it's got a picture of him up there.

Yeah, it is bittersweet. I believe when I was reading the release notes for the game, they said Sean Taylor was the hardest hitter in the 08 version. I hope they don't take him out.

I think it would be great for Sean to be the 09 cover thought I doubt it would have much appeal outside of Skins fans.
