A few months be­fore de­liv­er­ing the ex­cep­tional MVPBase­ball, EA set the tone for the com­ing months with its great­est Grid­iron of­fer­ing. Masses of fun on the turf, Mad­den05 is still revered for a fran­chise mode that in some ar­eas re­mains un­sur­passed.

This com­pre­hen­sive mode sang with per­son­al­ity. The sur­pris­ingly lis­ten­able and non-repet­i­tive Tony Bruno ra­dio show su­perbly mim­icked ESPN-style postgame phone-ins, while ev­ery in­di­vid­ual player had to be man­aged based on spe­cific de­sires: money, team role, on­field suc­cess, and so on. It would take years for Mad­den to re­cap­ture its mojo on Xbox 360.
