Well there have been football video games since the earliest home console days. With the latest generation of consoles we now have much better football games then what we first had with the Odyssey. The Xbox 360 offers some of the best gaming on the market and so it should be no surprise that they the top 3 football video games. Do you want to know which football games made the top 3? You better read on to find out.
All Pro Football 2K8
Considering there are so few football games and the sports game industry is dominated by only one or two major makers of sports games it is nice to see a new game come out that is not one of the old classic yearly remakes. The one bad thing about All Pro Football 2K8 though is that it did not get a sequel. The game is a couple years old but that is not a big hindrance for this game.The big draw of this game is that you can use classic players that were retired and use them on your team from when they were in their prime. Outside of using classic hall of farmers this game is a standard football game. Being on the Xbox 360 it does have amazing graphics and sound but nothing that stands out.
NCAA Football 10
Here is a yearly football perennial favorite. The advantage that it has over Madden is that it offers more teams. The downside is that you do not have the professional calibre players. If you went to a university with a football team then you may enjoy playing NCAA. Personally I never cared for most NCAA sports except when my school was playing.
Madden NFL 10
This may not be the original football game but it was the first to become a perennial favorite. Madden has been played on consoles since the Sega Genesis. Madden has been making games now longer then Sega was able to make consoles. This is the game by which all other football games are measured. The only two games that come close to matching this game are the old NES Tecmo Bowl for its nostalgia and being the first stand alone popular football game and Mutant League Football which should be brought back for its originality. Madden NFL 10 is the football game I would recommend to anyone looking to buy a football game for the Xbox 360.
It does not matter if you like NFL or NCAA football the Xbox 360 has a game for you.
