    I went to the biggest computer science school in Canada and had friends in that program. All the big software companies recruit like crazy there. And the one no one wanted anything to do with was EA. This is going back 13 years.

    got sick and tired of madden, so I quit buying last year.
    I do love NHL 13 though. I feel like it's a great game, and they do somewhat improve it year after year.

    They should be suing the NFL as well for allowing the monopoly. NFL put the screws to us all with allowing the exclusive contracts with Reebok and EA in the 2000s, and now Nike.

    But, you know what... people keep shelling out that 60 bucks for a game they know is bad.. you make your own money decisions.

    NHL has gotten progressively better ever since they went to the two stick thing. Also love that they included OHL teams lol

    I've never understood how EA crushes it with NHL and FIFA, two of the best sports franchises year after year but messes up Madden.

    Both FIFA and NHL are great games. The animations are realistic and fluid. Online play is top notch. Graphics are amazing.

    I will say Madden 13 took some good steps but I believe football games were the biggest failure of this generation. Maybe we van finally get a NFL 2K or something comparable to Madden 2005 on PS4 and XBOX ???

    I hate EA, but this is a ridiculous lawsuit. The buyers chose to pay full price for the games (something I don't do). I never pay the retail price of anything. I just take advantage of sales.

    I have had every single Madden since 2001. It's a shame I don't have all my receipts, but that would be a ridiculous thing to do... Save all receipts for over a decade?

    And I'm even the George Costanza of receipts/full wallet. I save all receipts throughout the year for tax purposes, but after that, I lose track of them or throw them out.

    I don't even have my M13 receipt because it was given to me as a gift. Might be able to find 12 and 11 laying around somewhere. Doubt it.

    Oh well. Either way, this has no chance of happening.

    EDIT: Wait, this actually worked??? Wow. I didn't pay attention to the OP because I had heard of this in the past and recently. Thought there was no chance.
