That's right. A few people will be calling in sick to work today because the most popular video game franchise of all time is back with bigger hits, better graphics, and a few new features. Madden NFL 2010 hit store shelves at midnight. Many game stores around the country threw parties to ring in the "new year" football style. Since it's inception in 1988, Madden has sold more than 70 million copies! I can remember playing Madden '94 for my SNES back in the day....I've purchased a copy of the game every year since 2003 ( I skipped a few years and a few consoles here and there). I spend hours upon hours every year being "king of the football world" thanks to a $60 dollar video game. Sports games aren't for everyone, but John Madden has never let his fans down. The game always has the latest in technology that is the next best thing to actually playing on Sunday's. John Madden may be retired from the broadcasting world, but as long as his video game continues to flourish he is doing gamers and fans a big favor. Thanks, John for your contributions to NFL and your AWESOME video game.
