The top 10 bestselling games from last week looked eerily like a football score: Madden 7, others 3. The 07 edition of Electronic Arts' annual football game nabbed the top seven slots in its first week in release. The platforms represented were, from first to seventh, the PlayStation 2, Xbox 360, Xbox, PS2 (Hall of Fame Edition), Xbox 360 (Hall of Fame Edition), PSP, and GameCube. The only console versions of Madden NFL 07 not to make the top 10 were the DS and Game Boy Advance versions.

When gamers weren't tackling runningbacks last week, they were killing zombies. Capcom's Dead Rising landed in eighth place, down three spots from the previous week. But even hordes of undead and 350-pound linemen couldn't stop the DS duo of Brain Age: Train Your Brain in Minutes a Day and New Super Mario Bros. The two titles remained on the top 10 list in ninth and tenth, respectively.

That's just embarrassing.

I bet that half the idiots who buy Madden on release day spend the rest of the year complaining about how EA only releases lame sequels and rehashes. Pathetic.

August 29th, 2006, 22:34
WTF its a football game for crying out loud, its been the same things for a while just better graphics....

August 29th, 2006, 23:04

Madden is usually a great game but I wouldn't think it was that good.

...FANS of the series love it unconditionally...get over it.

Kind of like...Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Resident Evil, MGS, Tekken...etc?

FANS love it.

What the? No GBA or DS Madden on that list? Preposterous!

Yes sportsfans, in America people support this like the Japanese support Dragon Quest. But unlike DQ, Madden is always the same exact game; but with marginal "improvements" that wreck the gameplay.
It's sorta like saying, how many times can a dog eat its own crap?

I do recall that in 2006 when you shut off the precision pass thingy, you had essentially Madden 2005; and when you changed the control scheme it became essentially Madden 2004! Waddayaknow! Either it was (at least) three games in one, or what may have been the first downgradable game ever!

that's a lot of madden, but football is huge here in the U.S.

I hate football games period. They're complicated and they are terrible. The only peole that buy those kind of games are those that would like to show their admiration for the game or some similar reason or they are idiots that dont do so.

wtf madden is shi*
Apperently not. It knocked New Super Mario Bros. to 10th! :eek:

lol you guys are funny for trashing madden just cause you dont like football.

i bought it.

but its not like you wont buy a final fantasy 7 remake if that came out, or already buy remakes of tons of games (o shit, new super mario bros was a remake wasnt it). every madden is exactly that, marginal upgrades in graphics with some random gameplay additions that may or may not suck, as well as updated rosters and what not. To put it simply, when you initially play a new madden, it may seem kinda simaler, but after playing a new one, it becomes nearlly impossible to play an old one again because the feel is just different.

just cuz you're not into it, doesnt mean it sucks. alone, i rarely play madden, but i play it against my friends and cousins all the time and it makes for great competition.

that's not to say i dont love rpgs, fps, and many other genres, but just cause you hate sports games dont make them suck just like the TONS of people (believe it or not, more than the people who hate madden) who cant stand turn based games like final fantasy.
