That should be the motto of the video games forum here. I just read that NBA Inside Drive 2002 (The B Ball counter part of NFL Fever 2002) will NOT include a Franchise mode this year. Doesn't Microsoft understand WHY EA Sports games are so popular? The REPLAY value stupid idiots, not the gameplay. I don't CARE that Fever looks better than Madden, I care that my friends and I can all participate in a season mode together, for 30 virtual years. Granted I enjoy sim like gameplay too, that's why I took a pass on NBA Live 2002 and will wait for NBA 2K2.
