I finally broke down and picked up the games NCAA 2007 and Madden 2007 for PS2. You may remember me briefly discussing the college game in a previous post. Even then, it had been a while since I gotten the latest Madden version so I'm pretty stoked about getting back in that saddle again. You must excuse me while I slip into nerd-dom for a moment.
Madden's always had the feature where you can create your own player. Recently, they've made it so you can create one and attempt to guide his career to the point where he gets into the Hall of Fame. Or you can import a created player from a draft class on the NCAA 2007 game. That's what I elected to do.
Q-Daddy is now in his third year at Iowa State. He's already broken every single quarterback school record. He's now well on his way to breaking every NCAA record for quarterbacks and his third year is not even halfway over. You can bet he'll be declaring for the draft at the end of the season. Then it's time to wreck shop in the "real world". And therein lies the problem.
Once Q-Daddy is drafted, I don't have any control over what team takes him. That means for the first time in my Madden-playing history, there's a good chance I won't get to play with the Chiefs while conquering the game. What's more, if drafted high enough, he could end up on a buster squad like the Texans. I guess that's the price I have to pay for playing a game that goes out of the way to infuse realism into its gameplay.
