Madden's not even a game anymore--it's a cultural phenomenon riding on the back of an entertainment juggernaut that's hitched to a runaway cash cow. The latest iteration sold over 2 million copies in a month, putting 2004 on track to earn more money than all but the most blockbusting Hollywood movies. The game is even used for diagramming plays on ESPN's EA Sports NFL Matchup, which must really stick in the craw of the guys who made the also rather good ESPN NFL Football.
Ultimate moment: Blaming your poor performance on the quarterback's obvious lack of concentration while playing against your best friend...who's online, tanning your hide from six states away.
