Note to everyone who called in sick this morning to work:
Happy Madden Release Day!
Yes, the most popular video game ever invented celebrates its 25th anniversary today, with Madden NFL 25 now on the shelves and millions of men around the country now on their sofas.
At this point, there's not much difference between versions, though creators have clearly made an effort to recognize the impact of such players as Colin Kaepnerick and Robert Griffin III in the league.
To wit: the San Francisco 49ers and Washington Redskins feature the Pistol formation with several Read Option plays.
Owner Mode also gives users the chance to act as scout, general manager, coach and everything in between. You can even raise prices on nachos!
Have you given Madden NFL 25 a shot yet? If so, grade it now:
