anyone play madden on the pc?
Don't have a PS2 anymore, so thought about picking up Madden for the PC. How is it on the PC compared to X-box and station? What is a good controller for Madden on the PC?

Re: anyone play madden on the pc?
I play on the PC. I'm still playing Madden 2005 because I can still download plenty of updates and rosters. I think the graphics are a lot better on a PC, if you have a graphics card. I've always preferred the PC version, you can do so much more tweaking to the game and the teams and there are unlimited roster updated and possibilities. Gameplay is still fun too.

I have a Gravis Eliminator controller. I love it. The directional controller is a ball and that makes it VERY smooth and precise. It's the best controller I've ever used. It's especially good for Madden and NBA Live, you can make some amazing cuts (Portis!) with this controller and it's really confortable to hold with rubber on the bottom. See if they have one at Circuit City and try out the display model, you'll love it.

If you want the hit-stick controls on newer Madden, just pick up a cheap PS1-PS2 controller and get this USB adapter from Radio Shack to use it on your computer. I use a Playstation controller on my PC for MLB '06 because it requires the extra sticks to play.

Yep, works just like it does on a playstation, the analog sticks AND the vibrations work...even though that's annoying.


If Radio Shack doesn't have them anymore...
