So I’m playing Madden 2006, and I decide to check out “Football 101”. I was hoping to learn some football and get a feel for the game. I selected the option that has John Madden teaching you the basic Football formations and plays. The computer runs the play, shows it to you, then lets you run it. It’s a very low-key way to learn how to play the game.
I try a simple play: HB slam. The halfback is supposed to take the ball from the QB and run it up the middle.
I start it, and the game runs the play on its own to demonstrate. Except: it didn’t run the way it was supposed to. The offensive line melted and halfback got pancaked the instant he touched the ball. I sat there, dumbfounded, as the computer completely screwed itself.
Then John Madden spoke up, “There. See how it’s done? Now you try it.”
Nice one, thanks John.
