John Madden Football (1988)

Well, the story started back in 1988 when John Madden Football 1988 was released. At that time, it was one of the first (and one of the only) football video games.

John Madden Football (1990)

Not much, but a few bits and pieces were added.

John Madden Football II (1991)

Even though it was the third game, they named it John Madden Football II. A lot was changed in John Madden 1991. The texture of the players, and a whole bunch of other things.

John Madden Football '92 (1991)

The textures of the players changed a big, and now there was a play-selector at the top of the screen. Plus, there was a star under the player you were playing as.

John Madden Football '93 (1992)

Once again, the texture of the player was changed slightly. Plus, a new outline was made in '93.

Madden 64 (1997)

If your wondering why its called Madden 64 not Madden 98 or 97, it was released on the Nintendo 64. (Or the N64) But this was one of Madden's biggest updates. Everything from the graphics of the scoreboard to the team name in the end-zone, everything was changed.

Madden NFL '98 (1997)

Did Madden go back in time? Why are the graphics worse than Madden 64? Well, my best guess it that the game just looked better on the N64.

EA went back to what the graphics were like on the Nintendo 64 (Or N64, if your a nerd like me.)
