Until today, all of the discussion of the newest NFL video game, Madden NFL 18, had been limited to player ratings and a screenshot or two.
However, that changed this morning when a pair of gameplay videos went up on Youtube. The Patriots-Falcons Super Bowl rematch video probably doesn’t affect Green Bay Packers fans much, but the other game should: it’s a Packers-Bears matchup at a snowy Lambeau Field.
In addition, both teams are wearing throwback uniforms, as the Packers go with 1960s-era jerseys.
Here’s the video:
For those who didn’t make it to the end, you’ll be pleased to hear that the Packers were victorious, beating Chicago 21-14. The Bears jumped out to an early lead on a Jordan Howard touchdown reception from Mitchell Trubisky, but Aaron Rodgers scored on a quarterback sneak to get back in the game. After another Bears touchdown, the Packers tied the game on a Ty Montgomery touchdown run and Clay Matthews forced and recovered a Trubisky fumble to set up the final score: a touchdown pass from Rodgers to Richard Rodgers.
All in all, the gameplay looks another step more fluid and crisp than in previous iterations of the game.
It’s no “put the team on my back, doe” (reminder: language is NSFW), but it’s a quick, fun video nonetheless. Let us know what your favorite Madden-related moments were, especially if you have videos to post!
