Top 10 Best Madden Games

The Top Ten
1 Madden NFL 07

Superstar mode was great around this time, it was nearing its peak hear, including franchise mode AND create-a-team was still a thing!

Smooth, fluid and easy to pick up and play. I've played a lot of Madden games in my time, but this has to be the best one in my opinion.

Maybe it's my childhood bias, but whether it be the in-depth create-a-player or franchise, this game has not been topped.

2 Madden NFL 2005

Best because of the great teaching aspect. The Create-a-Player/ Team is the best EVER because of the variety and realism of player faces.Franchise Mode is addictive. This game should seriously be re-made for Xbox One.

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.

Madden 2003-2005(on PC w/ Xbox controller)
Is alive and well with EVERY mod for rosters
Of a lot of whole seasons.
Like the 1992 season and the 2016 season etc..

3 Madden NFL 12

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

The 5 on 5 and the special balls were very fun. I play the wii version and think that it is the best I have played

Madden 12 and Madden 11 were my personal favorites, but 12 gets a slight edge.

4 Madden NFL 2004

My personal favorite Madden. Franchise mode was fantastic. No other team has played like like 2004 Atlanta Falcons. Roll out and throw a deep pass or tuck it and run for 20+ yards with Vick, it was so hard to defend against but it was possible.

Playmaker controls were a great addition. Plus owner mode was loads of fun

This year played FAST and you could block kicks!

5 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.

6 Madden NFL 10

Spent so many hours on this game, played Franchise Mode for 27 seasons and didn't buy another Madden until Madden 13.

Actual great graphics for its time, soundtrack is straight fire, truly reflective of how amazing the NFL was

I like this game because the Steelers are the best and they will be always be the best

7 Madden NFL 08

It was my favourite game growing up, and although Madden 12 was a much needed improvement, it was also when EA decided to introduce Ultimate team which is just the worse.

They say Madden started in 1988, but that isn't possible because history started in 2007 with the release of Madden 08, the holy grail of both Maddens and 08s.

If God had a favorite game, it would probably be John Madden 2008 on the Nintendo GameCube. A close second would be Joy Madden 2008 on the Microsoft Xbox 360.

8 Madden NFL 2006

Best game especially on PC great franchise mode except for the non inflating salary cap.

9 Madden NFL 2003

My very first Madden game ever. This game introduced me to football in general, and has been my favorite sport

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

10 Madden NFL 20

I think madden 20 is the best madden because of the quality and because the x-factors and overall I just think it's the best.

Huge improvement and hasn't been so much fun in years!

In my opinion this game is the best on PS4 for me and is really addicting.I got it for 25 since it was on sale.

The Contenders
11 Madden NFL 15

With Better Graphics. Better Gameplay. And Better Updates.
This Game is One Thing Better.

New defense features and mechanics allow fans to confront their rivals with an arsenal of new pass rush moves, new open-field tackling mechanics, two new defensive cameras and more. For the first time, you can determine exactly when the ball-carrier is in your tackling range, and choose either a conservative tackle or try for a high-risk, high-reward aggressive take-down. Further, new mechanics to jump the snap, cajole blockers off-balance and disrupt the backfield make it more interesting to play as a defensive lineman or blitzing linebacker. What's more, enhanced defensive AI means that your teammates will better know their assignments and be in position to make a play, allowing players to be more aggressive, with the knowledge that their teammates have their back. This Sure Will Be The Greatest Madden Yet Besides It's Madden season once again, and there is now a reason to celebrate.

12 Madden NFL 11

Was the best Madden in all aspects, the Franchise Mode was the most fun to play and I honestly wish I could still play this game now. It was so fun and I played it for years after it was out.

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.

TBE make all madden games like this one game play, franchise mode, all you have to change is make banners for championships.

13 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.

Best video game of all time. Superstar mode was amazing. Nothing tops this game.

14 Madden NFL 16

This Madden has exciting players, draft champion, and other unique stuff in the game. One of the best Madden games of all time.

Just like the one comment. Madden 16 was the Madden I played before 19.

The movement in this game felt smooth and the controls were nice, This was the most fun madden I've played and I've been playing since madden 12

15 Madden NFL 06
16 Madden NFL 18

Huge graphics improvement. I feel like madden would really benefit from a story mode like the one in 2k.

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.

17 Madden NFL 17

Last year using Ignite engine. I feel it's smoother and less crappy than 18 and on.

Simply the most balanced gameplay. Ultimate team at it's best as well.

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

18 Madden NFL 19

One of the worst all time, period!

Amazing game took a lot of risks and it worked great game. My faults on it: No practice mode MUT,training points to stingy,more player upgrades,to many big hits overcompensating

19 Madden NFL 98
20 Madden NFL 2000
21 John Madden Football

The original is by far the best because you can actually do stuff. It is a video game after all. I know the other ones are more realistic but this is more fun because you actually have a lot of control over your guy

22 John Madden Football '93

I had this game in my Sega genesis it was so fun because it feautured the 8 best teams ever at the time, like the 72 Dolphins, 85 bears, 78 Steelers and so on. An all time favorite.

23 Madden NFL 09 All Play

Bedt MADDEN ever in my opinion. 5 on 5 was great, and my favorite player was on the cover. Love this one the most and probably always will!

24 John Madden Football '92
25 Madden Football 64
