    NHL 13 and 14 are great. I stopped buying madden a long time ago. NHL has few to no bugs, cheats, money goals. It looks like they put some effort into that game. Madden sucks, and it has for quite some time. It was infuriating to play madden online with all the in game glitches, and money plays that we're just about impossible to stop.

    Battlefield 3 was awesome and BF4 looks amazing as well.

    Beyond those, they suck.

    Actually FIFA is good too... I think most of the hatred comes from the Madden series. I'm not familiar enough with their other games to judge that harshly.

    EA has some good games under their belt. It's just madden that sucks.

    Madden sucks if you're looking to play it as a simulation game. You have to make major slider adjustments to get a good offline experience.

    I enjoy Madden as a competitive game though. Yeah there are a ton of money plays and crazy blitzes, but you find ways to beat them. If you can make your way into the top 1000 area on the leaderboards, you get some crazy intense games.

    TEACH ME.

    I used to be a great Madden player... even spent some time in the top 600 last year.

    I haven't played much of 25. I think my record is like 18-7. That's not bad, but it sucks considering I started out 10-0 (I've only used the Titans so far).

    I generally suck on defense these days. I've gotten a whole lot better in the passing game, and I've gotten more creative with my run plays. But I have a serious problem stopping off tackle runs.

    Also... kick returns are gay. I don't know what it is, but in this particular Madden I cannot cover kicks. I probably gave up a return every 20 games or so in the past. Now I seem to give up one every other game or so. I usually just select kickoff middle and kick it deep straight to them. I've always done this. But now, they'll get to about the 10-15 and suddenly shift to the left and the entire team will be juked or not fast enough to catch up, and they'll make it to the 40 or beyond almost every time. Even if I kickoff right (their left), it doesn't change one damn thing. The coverage is horrible.
