1. Madden NFL ‘95

This one was released in 1994 and the release took place in that year so that the game could acquire all the needed licenses it needed in order to be approved by the NFL team. The game was great in the sense that it provided an attempt to bring NFL more realistic and closer to the masses in terms of making stadiums, player and everything connected to it as realistic as possible. Being the first one of this kind, it became an instant hit due to the fact that the camera covered a larger portion of the screen.


2. Madden NFL 2004

The very cover gives Michael Vick, one of the icons of NFL. It should be also noted that this game introduced something new in the franchise. More precisely, the best thing about this release was the introduction of the Ownership Mode which practically meant that you would get a game that could be actually played like Sims. This practically means that the players are now playing as the owners of the clubs and players that play for that club.
