Did anyone get/plan on getting Madden 16? I scooped it up and started getting my feet wet with it.

Even if you aren't a gamer, you should watch the opening scene. It gave me chills:


I started a "MyPlayer" with a running back on the Falcons. So far, we are 0-3 (Matt Ryan is REALLY good at throwing interceptions). 0 rushing TDs, 2 receiving TDs, and 2 kick return TDs. I love how difficult this game makes it to do well. I also don't chose all run plays (meaning I do the "Quick" play call which allows one play to be shown at a time). My rule is I have to go with the style of the first play shown (if it's a run, I can only choose another run play).

They have also worked on the catching and it's pretty neat. I had what I thought was a sure TD on a wheel route but the DB played me instead of the ball in flight and ended up jarring it lose at the last second.

I haven't bought Madden in a few years, but I did just recently purchase my PS4. I'm going to read all of the reviews first before deciding to buy it or not.

The reason I traded Madden in Last year was the challenge system was terrible. It would CONSTANTLY get it wrong. So far this year, it is 1 for 1 on getting the correct call.

The reviews seem pretty fair. I know I haven't tried all the game modes but from what I have experienced thus far, the game is deserving of it's 8/10 rating most places are giving it.

I'm playing on Xbox One as well.

My career has really taken off with my RB. Really, REALLY enjoying this game.

Got the deluxe version for PS3, playing Ultimate is the best Madden experience when most of your time is spent solo. Challenge, Auction, and Collectible Systems have been fixed and are WAY better than 2015.

Who needs Madden when there's Rocket League?

Are most of these games played against other people or against the computer?

My buddy and I are doing a co-op league where we fantasy drafted a team and play on the same team. Tons of fun. It was my first time with this game of playing a position besides running back and it continues to impress me. Love the passing mechanics and the catching adds a lot of dramatic effect.

It's a healthy mix of both. If you prefer one or the other, there are plenty of options to do both.

I prefer to play the computer.  Too many bad experiences with quitters/bad connections to make it fun to play online.

I am really bummed they never brought it back where you could play with your buddies online on the same team whether vs. the computer or other players.

I really have enjoyed this game. I am trying out MUT and it's a pretty cool mode. I can see how it's be more fun when you don't have Stanzi as a QB.

I am waiting to start my CFM until the new update.

What's your team name Yak?  We can play each other if I friend request you.  I can also give you some players I don't use any more...I'm drizztbob of course if you want to search for me.

:EDIT

Sorry I'm retarded, just saw that you play on Xbox 1. I'm a Playstation user, nevermind!
