Every year a new version of Madden comes out. It becomes even more realistic every year. It includes new players from the draft and progression and regression stats based on the previous year. Madden has become the bridge for all football fans from the day after the Super Bowl till the kickoff of the following season. If you dont believe me ask my father, who plays religiously until the start of the new season. I myself find it helps relax me after having a stressful day. Mostly though, its helps get me through the months in between. I went from playing football in high school to just being able to “play” football on Madden.
