Wow, it's been a long time since football (decent football) has come to the PC!

^^If the rosters, or at least the player ratings, cannot be modded then the game will very quickly be worthless. Stock Madden ratings tend towards the completely insane.

I don't want Madden. I want Front Page Sports Football 95 and 98.

Was Madden 08 on PC moddable?

pretty sure it was since people were releasing updated rosters for years after it came out and thought they did other stuff too...

sure, madden will never equal the old front page games, but it is a solid game for what it is and nothing else out there.

for serious simulations, ootp/front office football will be released this year so year looking good for football

I'm definitely in. I love NFL and I loved Maddens representation of it. I've got the latest one on PS4 but as the PS4 uses the TV, it doesn't get used a whole lot.

Just wait for the kneeling during the anthem DLC.
As long as the kneeling doesn't detract from the gameplay, and it's my understanding it won't, then I'll be in on that too - so long as that money goes to a worthy cause. 😘

I has last years rosters on it so in that regard yes - though I still didn't win much with the Bears  :) . Would be interested to know what spec PC you need to run the graphics on the trailer.

Appears to be a community that was dedicated to modding....

Although none of us know to what degree the new game will allow it.......luckily for me I would be fine with the base game anyway:)

My all-time favorite football game was Madden 98. It was easily modded and was focused on strategy. Lots of X's and O's and play diagram stuff. It reminded me a lot of the coaches hammering plays into us and then practicing them...and then how things actually worked in a game. And then they turned Madden into a sucky video game.
Sigh...
The best I have been able to find since then is Action! PC Football and it is just not the same.

Good news for sport fans.....

Ohhh reeeally?  Hrmm.

Wait..  what the f^*k is this?!

Quote from: Article
.. Madden 19 was confirmed for PC as part of the new Origin Access Premiere subscription package.

"Premier subscription package"?   What the f^*k IS THIS?!  Oh, EA, you filthy exhaust ports.  I should've guessed.  I wonder if EA will also be jamming it full of digital gambling micro-transactions?  What a bunch of c^nts.

This x2

I recall Madden '98 with fond memories.  Seems as if they started dicking around with the formula too much sometime after.
