Best Madden Games

The Top Ten

1 Madden NFL 12

I love creating teams and putting them in franchise mode all the time it's the only madden game I actually spend a lot of time on because it brings the creative side of me in football out I also replace all the real teams with custom teams which is hella fun

Best madden game I love rebuilding in franchise or doing madden moments and it was the last madden with create a team!

Not even close. Best one by far.

2 Madden NFL 2005

The radio show was the best feature! All the other maddens missed this.

Great Game, the birth of EA sports radio, which I like very much. How can it not be number 1. The newer versions have too many new gadgets which make it confusing to play.

3 Madden NFL 07

Looked like a great game but I didn't get the chance to play it because the disc didn't work when I first got it.

Last Madden I owned. Never played on my 360, game was waaayyy better on original xbox.

4 Madden NFL 2003

I love how easy the menus allow you to control Teams, Coaches, and Players.

5 Madden NFL 2004

I love mick vick because he's the fastes guy on the field

6 Madden NFL 10

I think that madden 10 and 11 have better graphics than madden nfl 13 and 25

7 Madden NFL 15

It's more realistic than all the other maddens. The referee's make better call's. The graphics are better too my favorite game ever.

This game gets better and better as I explore the game modes

Its madden season and I voted for this game for no reason

This game is awesome!

8 Madden NFL 08

Out of all the madden games I ever had I played this one the most! Heck I even played it after 09 was released!

Can't wait to checkout 2015!

9 Madden NFL 25

This Madden just feels faster to me. Faster players, faster gameplay, faster games in general. It didn't have those weird arrow things and Connected Franchise is extremely fun. You can control up to 32 players, and retire at the right time instead of staying in the game forever. Say your old player retires and you make a new one. You don't start from the beginning, you start from where your previous player ended! I got all the way to 2029! (In very very late 2017.) I played Madden 12 and it is no where NEAR as good as this one. This should be number 1 and Madden 18 number 2.

The last Madden in which you could draft players from NCAA Football 2014!

More realistic and it's cool

I think EA got it right with the precision modifier juke. The running game can be very dynamic when playing with elite playmakers in space. Maddens after this date took a different approach to how the game engine operates but I loved this edition. EA got it right this time.

10 Madden NFL 11

This game the best franchise mode in like history. Also including the extra point. And a simple passing game and running game so in my opinion this the best Madden game.

The game play is the best, graphics, and franchise mode keep making this Madden and just update the announcers

Number 1 every game is a breeze

My first and favorite Madden game. - Alpha101

The Contenders

11 Madden NFL 09

Creativity and gameplay was awesome. Hit stick! If you played franchise mode long enough, teams would go bankrupt and were relocated or replaced with new ones.

I think this year has the best graphics and the realest to football than any other year.

This game was by far my favorite, the franchise mode was so in depth with position battles and nfl players dislicking or liking what u are doing. Playing as a player is great being able to pick your agent and able to talk in interviews

12 Madden NFL 16

Best game way better then 15 & 25 & 17

Bad game, Should've gotten 25 instead.

Madden 16 has the best graphics and new characters like odell Beckham jr

13 Madden NFL 13

I played this game, and immediately wanted to get rid of it. Played Madden 06 later that year and I loved it, but the game broke right after my first game.

The only good thing about the new Madden NFL 16 is that it brought back the good soundtrack that Madden NFL 13 took away.

The cover looks cool and it really is easier too kick returns but I don't know why people buy I then give it back to Gamestop.

14 John Madden Football
15 Madden NFL 17

Only one I have

I think ea finally figured it out after 5 years of bad games. First good madden since 12

16 Madden NFL 98
17 Madden NFL 18

This is the best one yet because of longshot

Good one. Longshot is fun.

It has Tom Brady on the cover, so that's a bonus. Haven't played it sadly, I've only played 13, 09 and 12. I'm missing out! I need a PS4.

18 Madden NFL 06

Should be number 1


19 John Madden Football '93
20 Madden NFL 2000
