Madden NFL 08 - Xbox 360
Madden, Madden, Madden, Madden, Madden. Ok, you get the point. Minus Vince Young's mugg on the cover (jinx!!!), I can't NOT recommend Madden to any gamer, regardless of the system. Yeah it sucks when the game kicks your @$$ repeatedly, but when the NFL fever hits in August, you definitley want to be able to at least attempt to beat the Colts with your weak franchise - and of course slam the game off after a controller pitching and profanity at your lame defense for giving up an 80 yard TD to lose the game with a minute to go. Is it worth the headache - YES - EVERY YEAR!
This may have to be the year I get another copy of Madden. Been out of the game for like four years - but the football itch is starting up, and I hear this will be a rediculously fun simulation of America's sport (sorry MLB, but the superbowl ratings kind of say it all). Only FIFA can keep me from spending too many hours on this.
