Steve posted this at OS and it is a terrific read and had things I never knew about Madden.


What followed became one of the biggest secrets in video game history: EA built a "Montana" game for Sega that was designed to compete with "Madden." Sort of.

"We made sure it was totally inferior," Hawkins said.

Working from the "Madden" code base, EA removed the 3-D field, slashed the pro-style playbook from 113 plays to 13 and added cartoony, big-headed player graphics.

Yep, the Montana game. That article was posted last year, I believe, and I still enjoy reading that bit about the Montana game. Boy, that game sucked so badly.
