Madden NFL Video Game Franchise Retrospective
It’s the long running and extremely successful American Football series centered on the Superbowl-winning coach of the Oakland Raiders. Developed and published by EA, this series made its debut in 1988 for the Apple II series of computers as “John Madden Football.” As a result of Madden’s uncompromising demand for authentic football, this sports simulation forced EA to extend the development time by an unprecedented four years, and push the limits of contemporary technology. Since then, Madden has continued to be the the most authentic football video game series for over 20 years.
