    I don’t see where the MLB 2k hate steams from to me. Madden is a much much horrible game. at least MLB 2k has fun controls. Madden is a momentum mess and only sells because NFL is much popular than MLB baseball. also 2k makes it so you know presentation will be top notch and so will everything else it might not be better than the show but it’s sure is a helluva a lot better then madden 12 and I’m being kind.
