So you’re not a hardcore gamer but would love to play a football game that doesn’t require a degree in statistics (note: I don’t have a degree in statistics but kick ass in Madden)? Well, get ready for Madden NFL Arcade which is set to hit the PlayStation Store and XBox Live sometime in December. It’s quite similar to where-are-they-now Blitz and Street franchises of years past, but offers that Madden-esque feel that we’ve all come to love (even when we shouldn’t). It’s strictly five-on-five football with players given the choice to select long-, medium-, or short-pass plays or runs and basic defensive packages, then going head-to-head in a game that’s more like street basketball than a pro one.
