Madden 2012
 
On August 30th Madden 12 will be released so I wanted to see what others thoughts were on it.

For us Skins fans its always a little disapointing as far as ratings. It seems like it doesn't matter what FA we get or who it is because if your a Skin.. your ratings a little lower.
Like Laron Landry, can anybody believe he was only an 84 along with Santana to start the season last year?
Here's something else to watch for...
OJ Atogwe finished the season a 93 overall FS. With us hell be an 89... unless they prove me wrong. They need to prove me wrong and give at least the little proven talent we have a good rating.
Atogwe 91
Landry 91
Fletcher 90
Orakpo 89
D Hall 89
Santana Moss 87-88... they show Santana no respect
Cooley 86 and NOTHING LOWER. Guy used to be a 90, if your a Skin and you get hurt u drop fiercly.
Last year just an 85 for Cooley.

Let's see what happens this year.
Anyhow I preordered the Hall Of Fame edition so ill be playing with Jerry Rice, Marshall Faulk, Deion, and many more on my ultimate team so no matter what it'll b fun.

I also hold many online fantasy drafts so let me know who plays well get a warpath leage goin.

I don't play online much so I change the stats the way that I see fit. 99's across the board.

JK, but I do improve upon the stats because nobody wants to suck. For those who think what I do isn't "realistic" I say this "it's a video game you freakin tool, it's not realistic to begin with".

Which system Skins4L?

I'll be down for an online league on the 360 assuming Madden 12 doesn't suck. I wasn't a big fan of '11.

I am totally not getting this version. I don't have the time for it (newborn in the house) and every year it is the same old same old.

Sounds like they improved the Franchise part of the game -- which is what I love.

Me too. Really looking forward to seeing the changes.

I'll third that. I'm really excited to see all the franchise changes, but I will admit I'm disappointed they couldn't implement the rookie cap in this year's mode. There are ways around it but I'd rather just sign my rookies upfront instead of having to dump them in free agency and then resign them to a cap friendly deal. I'll live with it though, mainly because I think all the other changes they made to franchise mode are going to make it a lot better than it was in the past.

I say it every year but i hope this year they have fixed the mandatory retirement ages for players. It makes me mad to see a guy who is in good health and playing well retire at 35 or 36 when in real life you have 40+ year old kickers, Brett Favre, Joey Galloway types who play into their 40's.

Once even Santana Moss in one of my other madden games retired at like 32. Makes no sense.

They did have the .99 cent add on from the ps or xbox store which was called "one more year". And u can literally slap it on the same player every year and keep them playing. I'm a hardcore player so I bought all 3 good ones, the one more year, the team ratings booster for your franchise, and the star player which works on a single players ratings.

Re: Madden 2012
 
I've seen guys retire at all different ages in the game. Reality is once players get into their 30s in real life they're on borrowed time.

Exactly that is the norm and part of the fun of the game is grooming that next guy to take over for your retired vet.

I just hope it's as fun as NCAA 12 is. If you're jonesing for a good football game to tide you over until Madden drops, pick it up.

I'm still playing a franchise on Madden 2005...Skins have a handful of Super Bowl wins and Dallas is perennially in last place. I'm up to the 2013 season on the 2005 version of the game.


I just traded a 36-year old McNabb back to Philly...and acquired Beck (rated 82) from Carolina in a separate deal just try try him out.

Ray Rice has been a monster for me. I have a WR with 99 speed that I drafted from Miami named Danny Holt...love throwing deep balls off PA to him. :D

Cooley just retired though. :(


I had been just DLing roster updates for years and when they stopped becoming available in around 2009, I started a franchise. If I had more time to play, I'd get a newer version but I get maybe 1 or 2 games (with 4-minute qtrs) in per week. No time for a father to sit and play games.

Also, I'm playing on a PC, so the newest game I could get is 2008 anyways.
