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.
