I’m not saying EA SPORTS shouldn’t push Madden NFL to every gaming device known to man now or in the future. I’m saying let’s not pretend that 11-on-11 simulation football makes sense and will work on every gaming device known to man. That’s all. Case in point, Wii U will be getting a version of Madden NFL 13 so that Nintendo and marginally successful Wall Street types can put a check next to the box that says “sports game launch title” on their little video game launch check lists. And really, those people, Nintendo and marginally successful Wall Street types, shouldn’t be that important to you and your video game habits, hopes and dreams.
In any case, watch this trailer for Madden NFL 13 on the Wii U and prepare to be stunned and made to feel overwhelmingly indifferent about the whole thing.
