- Spite Bowl and Taco Bell: Ruminations on a More Social Madden
"Itís odd to talk about EA Sportsí Madden franchise, with the features itsí touting in the 09 release, now making itself more of a social gaming experience. For the better part of two decades itís been one of the top titles to play with friends, offline or, lately, online. But the pattern of features that were added, upgraded or unchanged from last year points to a major push thatíll expand the gameís social appeal, especially to demographics well outside the paunchy, balding thirtysomething. In other words, EA is going where the growth is, and its marketing of this game absolutely tips that hand."
- Feasting On The Bones Of The Madden Curse
"Don't believe in the Madden Curse? Great. Think the Madden Curse is just a laugh? Good for you, the world needs laughter. But if you're one of the millions of suckers who genuinely believe that appearing on the cover of EA Sport's Madden dooms an athlete to a season of injury and/or misfortune, please, read on. You may as well see why you're a sucker."
