The original blitz was the only football game i ever truly enjoyed.

The 2kwhatever football that debuted on the dreamcast was pretty good, but every football 'simulator' just feels too slow

But more to the point of this story... This crap has taken years??? The legal system... My jeebus...

I don't care about realistic sports games. I just wish someone would make a new Mutant league game.

Then go play the EA madden series... You get to play as your favorite teams.
Oh and I read somewhere a few months ago that NFL sold the exclusivity rights themselves, how is that EA's fault?
If there is anyone to blame it should be the NFL.

Edit:You never said it was EA/Madden's fault, meh my bad.

Why do I want to play a football game if I can't use my favorite team? Doesn't make sense. And it used to not be that way, thus my original complaint.

What monopoly?
Other companies can make sports games, EA can't stop them.
EA owns the NFL license, so no, other companies cannot make NFL games.
That still doesn't stop other companies from making a football game.
No shit, thanks for trying to argue semantics. It stops them from using licensed NFL teams & players. There have been other attempts at football games, but they've fell short. You need the licenses in order to make any money so the previous developers have just stayed clear.

Gtfo with that shit.

I'm sick of the monopoly Madden has on the market. ESPN NFL 2k5 is still the best football game ever.
