moment of silence for nfl2k/espn fball as madden 2006 ships out/arrive

the sadness i felt last year when the nfl was bought out by ea sports came around full circle today. nothing worse than seeing only one nfl licensed game on the market at an msrp of 49.99. the madden vs espn fball (nfl 2k) debate has gone on since the dreamcast launched. some people liked espn fball some liked madden but what we all knew was that because of competition each game got better and more refined over the years. now we won't have that for the next five years. i only wish the nfl would see what it is doing rather than just a big dollar sign.

 

anyway this is a moment of silence for a fantastic series. feel free to post your comments below. not sure why i wrote this thread other than to get some excess steam thread and to ask if anyone else is saying "why oh why". anyone else still sad about all of this?

As a PC football player it doesn’t affect me much as EA has been the only title for the PC for a while now. I wish there were more choices, I wouldn’t even care about NFL/NFLPA licenses if the game was editable/modable.

 

Dynamix’s Front Page Sports: Football, was really cool for it’s time and M$’s NFL fever was a good arcade game. Madden is the Energizer bunny though, and even with no competition in the PC world they do a good job of improving the game (cept one year was a lousy ps2 port). PC version is delayed a bit but looking forward to it.

 

Sony did the same thing with F1, can’t say I blame em (Sony or EA) from a business standpoint but it sucks for the consumer.
