Nice, Quinton. It looks like there will be a lot new. I think changing all the production staff for Madden had a big impact. I played the demo and was genuinely impressed. If they deliver on all the franchise updates (cut days, custom playbooks, new scouting and free agency tools), then this is the first year I'll pre-order Madden... ever.
I haven't enjoyed Madden in a very long time but it's fun again! I thought 2010 was okay and 2011 wasn't anything special. But between the new gameplay and the demo allowing me to play as the Bears (Da Bears!), it's a win win. Possible buy now instead of rental.
