You don't tug on Superman's cape. You don't spit into the wind. You don't pull the mask of the ol' Lone Ranger and you don't mess around with ... Madden.
For those of you uncivilized philistines who don't recognize Jim Croce's mostly accurate lyrics, I think you get the drift. This week Madden 09 wins Game of the Week essentially by default. You might notice that there is no list of games below, painstakingly cut and pasted from other locations to peruse for your gaming enjoyment. Again, no point.
Here's the deal. For PC there's a game I've barely heard of from Sega called Space Siege, a smattering of DS titles, and Madden. That's it. If you don't like Madden you can stop reading two paragraphs back, because there's nothing else to talk about.
Despite my better judgment, I have every intention of falling for the hype and being a drop in the ocean of those who will shell out hard earned greenbacks for another year on the virtual gridiron. If nothing else, I'll at least bask in the glory of a Packer Brett Favre on the cover, and think not about his throwing errant gunslinger passes to Jerricho Cotchery.
