Yes, never on Madden 08 PC
, I control all 32 teams, go through weekly game plan, set depth charts and watch cpu v cpu! I normally play 3-4 games weekly in my franchises! No sim! Not a game, a week, or a frinkn season! There's no fun in sim imo!
When Madden 08 PC came out, too many gamers complained about the sim stats being way over the top. I never played a full game on All-Madden, and NEVER simmed a franchise game. I've simmed on Madden PS2 recently because I wanted to get to the off-season, import NCAA 08 draft classes (which I never did in the past), draft my favorite players & relocate teams! After that first season was over I went back to my cpu v cpu and set the cpu v. cpu games to 3 minutes to minimize the exaggerated stats, but never simmed one game on PC 08 and won't sim another on PS2! Imo, sim games suck and only give you stats! I have no use for sim!
Wow. You play ALL the games in your franchises? I only play my team's games, but after a few seasons, I start a new one. Or take another team and watch the CPU mismanage my old team
You never played on All-Madden? Why not, it's not that hard - or do you restrict yourself somehow?
You're right, it's not hard at all, but it's cheesy as hell! I've played All-Madden in the past and even on Madden 20 versus my friends and cpu! IMO and other's (my friends) agreed with me! All-Madden is like God-Mode for the CPU players. All-Madden buffs every player for the game. A player rated 67 will play like a player rated 87. Even with sliders adjusted, All-Madden doesn't have that "realism effect" in the game. Mistakes like fumbles, dropped passes and penalties become rare and mostly non-existent when playing on All-Madden!
Also, I don't use spam/money plays to maintain an advantage over the CPU. My friends and I decided long ago that All-Madden takes the realism out and replaces it with "Oh my GOD" & "That's some Bu## S*&%"!
One recent example, we were playing All-Madden on Madden 19 PS4. I had my friend 3rd & 17. I called a cover zero defense and sent the house. His QB had a 46 break tackle rating, which is almost "0" in Madden. He snapped the ball, my guys got there quick. But his QB ducked under the first hit and while being hit from a second defender, launched a 47 yard bomb on me and scored! We both were laughing (me more crying complaining) and agreed that it was superman like, over the top and a sack should have happened, resulting in him punting the ball!
We play 3 Maddens, 08 & Madden 20 on PC and Madden 19 on PS4! I also play Madden 08 PS2 and NCAA 08 also on PS2 solo! Also a side note, Madden 20 PC can be purchased for $14.99 now. And when Madden 21 drops below $20 sometime early next year, I will be making the purchase! And probable stop playing Madden 08 entirely!
But yeah, no All Madden for me!
