Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

I miss the mini games too. I could draft a QB and improve him big time in just a few seasons....now unless a player has an "A" potential, and has a superstar season every year, he will never make it into the 80's or 90's ratings....i think its sad for people who missed the old mini games.

They were fun too. I really liked the runningback one. The QB one where it shot at you with tennis balls was really fun.

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

The Skins this year have absolutely ruined madden for me.
It makes me sick when I win with the same players and then watch them take the pipe for 4 quarters every Sunday. I can't even play with another team... just sits on the shelf.

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

I'm actually having fun running through seasons with other teams for a change. The way I look at it is Madden '10 is a solid game, I'm not going to let the Skins ruin it for me.

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

I like bing a Superstar QB and bing traded all over the place. I started in Tampa then got traded to Washington (dream come true) I have 3 SB Rings and I am about to hit the FA market. I Think I want to play somewhere warm and out of the NFC East. Maybe a dome.

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

The only reason that I'm hating it is 1) I don't know all of the controls still (not my system or game) and 2) I treat it more like a video game than a football game

getting frustrated with a few things such as being constantly picked even with wide open receivers.. thought it was me just throwing the ball too hard but they're always way leaping catches, I've only played it a couple of times though online.. I guess precision passing is still in the game so I need to experiment with that

also I hate that so many people literally run 15 to 20 yards back and then end up throwing it to their RB.. I don't know my defenses as well as I'd like but this one is frustrating me like crazy

I keep losing games like 38-21 or something.. I should try to get a few games a day in to get the basic handle of stuff down, it's really been 2 years since I played with any regularity (3 games a week with the kid bro) and before then.. madden 97

I hate that I call bad plays just based on the moment instead of being smart.. It also seems like the other person knows exactly what run play I'm going to do, no matter what

oh well.. I just need to be patient I guess

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

I've been getting my ass kicked pretty regularly since I started playing Madden on 360. I've recently begun to play it on PS3 and seem to be playing much better. I can't figure out if I'm more comfortable with the controls or what. On PS2 I was the shit so that's about all I can come up with.

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

im still playing madden (but on the ps3) but i mode leap. right now the mode ive been all about is the "ultimate team mode" but i played a franchise game last night due to the fact that you can get a few packs and make your team a 93 ovr (mine) pretty easy. got too easy too quick. but i wasnt sold on albert haynesworths pick up this off season so i dropped him before i started my season then picked him back up when i started my franchise (which is funny cause you can get him for less money when you do that but i wanted to be able to trade him without the $40 million cap penalty (!!!!) so i kinda trade raped the colts....colts 1st and 3rd and Robert Mathis (94 ovr) for Haynesworth. ive done a few trade and im sitting on 4 first round picks...sorry had to trade away JC for a first rounder too...hes inconsistant even in the game lol.

Re: Anyone else hate Madden '10?

madden 10 is a crappy game. the gameplay is strange, i much prefer ncaa10, just a more fun game to play and develop teams. fifa 10 is also good, and nhl 10 is pretty good as well. but i really think im not buying madden again.

Yeah I'm definitely not a fan of the xbox controllers.. then again I had the playstation back in the day and bought my kid bros a ps2 when it came out, but haven't played that a lot either since I didn't live around there

i put him up on the trade block for a first and/or a qb over 80 overall...well i was offered a first rounder by 3 teams...the one i ended up trading with was the rams (cause i know they will have an early pick) and i wanted to see if they would take a him for a first and second...they took it i was like ok a first second and third...they didnt take that but i had to trade for a player too since that wouldve put them over their 55 player limit...so i took some junk and released him but got a first and second round pick for him.

May I make a few suggestions:

1 Lab, Lab, Lab: thats go in pratice mode, find out what style of offense you like and run each play about 10-15 times.

2. Be patient in the pocket, you do have the ability to move around, you have to first identify the main target, and if that's not open, have two check down plays, one is your RB and TE or RB, FB.

3. About those dropping back 20 yards, two things, find a defense with alot of zone blitzing, once you identify these guys, manuely rush a LB or a DE, around and create mad pressure and then, try to making them throw the ball, with not alot of time. ( works for me).

4. You margin of losing seems to do with alot of frustrations and impatientness, look no matter what the score, stick to the game plan, if your game is running, do that, if it's passing do that.

5. I will guaren-damn-T your running game get's better if you use zone running, pull up screen, and either pinch, move line to L or R or spread them out, us alot of dives and tosses (for fast RB). If you like the running game, make sure your guy gets 20 touches no matter what, and mix in a little PA.

The way that I use a measuring stick for getting better is I lab with the worst offense against the leagues best Defense, so if your or connecting with them, you will do great with the team your comfortable with.

Hey and if you ever wanna Lab, live hit me up, we can headphone chat, I be more than happy to help you out.

PEACE!!!!!

Thanks man.. all of that makes sense.. it definitely has to do with impatience and not actually thinking of plays that should be called in an actual game of football.

Thanks for the D advice, I'll try that out. This PS3 isn't mine and I don't know if my roomie has a headset or not, but after I take some time to actually play seriously instead of just a pickup game a couple of times a week lately I'll take you up on that.

FIFA is definitely worth it. 10 is by far the best in the series.
