    Ok, so my football game background goes all the way back to Madden 01 ... Haven't touched NCAA until this year ... Im a big NFL fan.

    Well today I've received my copy of Madden 11 finally after quiet some anticipation and I must say .... I played it for 35 minutes, took it out, and put back in my NCAA 11....

    Anyone else feel like Madden 11 just feels weird to play this year?

    Madden '11 is way better than NCAA in my book... I only play NCAA only because I love playing in my online dynasty. If not for the OD than I probably would play Madden instead of NCAA.

    I think its just a question of which game you prefer. If the bump n run were less effective and there were less dropped passes, I'd like NCAA just as much as Madden - not that Madden doesn't have its many flaws as well.

    I didn't even bother with Madden 11.

    Madden 10 was a pretty good game, though it had flaws. When they announced no full online franchise with offseason until Madden 12, I made up my mind not to play 11.

    Exactly, to me it seems Madden 10 was a way better game than Madden 11 .... or maybe its because im addicted to NCAA OD

    I think NCAA feels a lot better and seems more natural than Madden. I haven't bought the game (only played it at people's houses and such), but the only thing I really like about Madden is being able to do fantasy drafts or build a team with the whole pool of players, I find that fun... the gameplay not so much.

    There is a current front-page poll up on OS for this same debate. After about 1500+ votes, it's pretty clear both games are equally popular amongst the community.

    I like NCAA for the recruiting and online dynasty side of things. I enjoy playing Madden, games don't take to long, the speed of the game is a little quicker, graphics are pretty damn good, but I always buy NCAA, not always Madden.

    And with a site like Xtreme Football, Madden would be my preferred choice if I still lived in the States;)

    Really? It seems the exact opposite to me. Everything is in like Slow Motion almost ... maybe I just need to mess with my settings.

    I think NCAA is the better game overall, better gameplay and better game modes. Yet I play Madden equally because I'm more of an NFL fan, plus my favorite college team sucks almost as bad in game as they do irl...jayhawks...

    Its strange, because I LOVED Madden 10 and hated NCAA 10, played Madden through the summer and played 5 games of NCAA total. This year, I traded in Madden in September, and I love NCAA

    I bought Madden 10 due to online franchise but it wasn't any good and once I heard it was more of the same for Madden 11 it made my decision easy.
