    I know the XBOX is the console of choice for online gaming around these parts, but I'm a Madden fan, and the PS2 is the only console to play Madden. (due to the 4 shoulder buttons)So is anyone interested in starting up a Madden Group. We can just hang out in the lounge, have some friendly games, maybe create a schedule if people are committed. I'm not talking about a league, just a group of people who want to play some madden against fellow HTF'ers.

    Reply if interested.

    I'm interested, however, I won't be picking up the PS2 version until the beginning of Sept. I always use the Raiders, not sure if that matters.

    HTF Madden wars online? I'm there. My online info is in my sig. I always thought it'd be cool to form a password protected "HTF" room. Password? "OAR", of course.

    I dig the HTF/OAR room/password combination. Since my Eagles are taken, I would like the Browns. Maybe someone who is a little more web savvy can make a standings/Alias page when response to the league dies down, and we can start to officially track our results. I haven't gone online with madden yet, but my NCAA name is MMdeadlax97 and I assume that my Madden name will be the same.

    Well, since this isn't really a league, I don't see why you can't use the Eagles also Ryan.

    I still want to do this. I was waiting for the people who had not yet purchased the game to buy it.

    Maybe we should set a start date. That way everyone interested should have the game by that date and we can start playing. I'm 99% sure I'm getting it Aug 31st-Sep 2nd, so I can be ready to play sometime around then.

    I want in as well and I would like to live and die (probably mostly die) by the Lions. I am for a league but why don't we try a tournament around the begining of Sept to get our feet wet? Since those are already available in Madden.

    Okay, the plan is to start Sunday the 31st, unless anyone would rather start earlier that weekend. Going by the responses in this room we currently have...

    Ryan_Walsh - Browns
    RudyN - Raiders
    Cory Pals - Eagles
    Richard Travale - ???
    Dave Brogli - Packers
    Mike Hutman - Bengals
    Christopher_S -
    Chris_Eff - Lions
    Jarvis_R - Bears

    Games will be 5 minutes on All-Pro setting. I find this difficulty level to be accomodating to newer players while quarterbacks do not complete every pass. The kicking system is a little difficult, but that's the game. I'd really like to get 16 people, but any even number is fine. I'll give the bye to the team that has the points scored/yards gained minus points allowed/yards allowed. This might seem backwards at first but it helps reduce the bias towards big play drives, and curtails giving a bye week to a player who may have just gotten lucky against a new player. I'm open to other suggestions, as these are just my thoughts at this time. This will be the first tournament but not the last. I am hoping play a tournament with each roster update (at least). I think EA will be updating its online rosters as the season progresses. At least I hope that is an addition to this years game.

    I'm down for some action.

    I think I'll go with the Seahawks, though I've never played with them before. Good young secondary and receiving core, not to mention Shaun Alexander....Mmmm.

    That start date works good for me, though I wont be able to start playing until I get off work on Sunday, at 6pm eastern time.

    Well, I get back from vacation on the 30th, and will probably have to work the 31st, so I don't know if I'll be able to start that day. I'll let you guys know as soon as I find out.
