I just spent like an hour writing about Orlando and guns. It sucks but had to be addressed. I want to blog about stuff I like, sports, music, life and just being funny in general, but when life happens you have to address it you can't just bury your head in the sand.
That being said, Madden 17 released a trailer for the game today and it has me feeling all the feels. My relationship with Madden is one of the longest relationships of my life. I've been a huge fan since Madden 04. Sorta late to the game but I only played Tony Hawk pretty much until I was like 12.
Can we just be upfront here? Madden is the same game every single year. I can't get fired up about a commercial for a game that isn't coming out for two months. Only thing they do is make the graphics a tiny bit better, get rid of something that people like, change the way you kick from the right joint stick to the d-pad every couple seasons and update the rosters. I swear Madden released the same trailer last summer, and the one after that, and so on....
But Madden remains my favorite video game, what can I say I'm obsessed with football. I love it, despite my love/hate relationship with the NFL itself, I just can't get enough. I just can't get fired up about a stupid commercial. I'm sure Madden 17 will be sick, and I'll probably buy it the day it comes out but I'm not gonna freak out about this ad. Does nothing for me.
One thing I need to know is is Tom Brady going to be suspended in the video game? Because if he is I am OUT on Madden this fall just out of sheer principle. Also I still HATE that Gronk is on the cover. I don't believe for one second the madden curse is over, anybody that thinks a curse just ends because nobody gets hurt for a couple years knows nothing about curses. Wikipedia curses one time for me and you'll see everything you need to know. Let's just hope Gronk makes it through the season with a pulse.
