Hands down the best football game every made

Now, you ask, "Why is Madden 99 so different from Madden 98?" Two words: Franchise Mode. A mode of game play that let's you be the coach and general manager of your favorite team for up to 15 years. Players retire when the time comes and become better (or worse) as their career progresses. To fill the spots of the retiring players, you can draft new ones yearly (just like the NFL does). There is a mass free-agent signing period after the season, where you can pick up players other teams didn't sign. You have to negotiate contracts when your players' contracts expire, and if you can't sign them they become free-agents. Franchise Mode is so realistic, that you don't even have to ever play a single game if you don't want to; you can just coach. Of course, you can still play the season if your more active than I am. Let's talk about game play. Madden 99 introduces new player designs, a complete 180 from the Madden 98 designs. Tackles are animated much better and you can fight for that extra yard! Also, the throwing and catching animations aren't too shabby either. You can juke, spin, stiff-arm, and hurdle tacklers. If your on defense, you can swim around offensive lineman. The game play is, needless to say, very realistic.
