It's about time. I'm not a big sports fan, but I always liked playing the 2K football games against my friends. Never got into franchise mode, playing seasons, etc... I just liked talking smack and playing football on the couch. Madden just never did it for me. I'm glad to see 2K Sports making a football game, even if it isn't licensed.
