Why is there no Madden on PC

#1Waytoodeep03Posted 7/28/2014 10:20:14 AM
Is it because modders would create beautiful graphics mods that would put EA to shame and prove to the world that EA is lazy?

Why is this game never on PC?

You answered your own question.

I would assume because PC gamers likely don't care for Madden? It hasn't been on PC in many years and I don't think it sold well back when it was on PC.

As for the competition statement, they did challenge 2K to buy the rights into making a NFL game to compete against them, but then again, it's likely that they're cocky about the negative fan response of their recent years of sports games.

Cause we're not jocks that care about putting dumb footballs through hoops and stuff!

I don't know why no one just makes a PC only NFL or NHL game, puts in generic people and teams so it's not actually NFL/NHL, then sell it with mod support so that other people mod in NFL/NHL teams and players and locations.

This would be a great idea.

Their official explanation (circa 2008) was basically that the PC was becoming an unprofitable platform to develop sports games for.

Take that for what you will. (i'd assume pirating concerns)

Most black ppl prefer to game on consoles.


Girls prefer to game on PC.

I dunno about you but I go where the women are.
