Turf Show Times Buys Madden 11

How do I know football season is coming soon? New lifestyle stories about how Madden 11 has replaced whatever it is young adult males did before as the ideal pathway to unmisconstruably heterosexual no-girls-allowed bonding. ram_rod of Turf Show Times bought 11 after avoiding Madden 10; here's what he had to say about it:

Well I don't know about anyone else, but I bit the bullet and purchased Madden 2011. The last Madden I bought was '09, considering I'm in the camp that says I don't feel like shelling out 59.99 for a roster update, and boy, it kinda feels like it. Sure the new age glam in the menu's is all there, but in essence, it's still the same game. I like the increased realism and fluidity of the animations, it looks more real. But it sure takes you out of the experience when you are bombarded by EA ad's for their games (seriously) and also 'boosters' which basically are cheats you pay for. With real money. Or the fact that, despite the 90 degree weather, everyone is wearing long jeans and sweatshirts. Are all the fans from Death Valley?

The intrusion of actual money into the cheating economy kind of weirds me out—are we really so far removed from the Game Genie that we need to pay EA to get Jump Really High and Infinite Health?
