Madden 12 is one of my favorite games ever. If you have friends over to have a good time I would pick Madden 12. I think if you want to learn how to play football or if you love football you should get Madden 12. Madden 12 teaches people how to play football. If you want to learn what the positions do or what you want to learn some plays are then play Madden 12.
If you like to create then you can create characters, teams, and stadiums. If you create a character can make them as good as you want them to be so you can have an advantage. You can make pick his position, team, name, and his looks. If you create a team you can make it the perfect team.
