In the fall of Madden 22 coins last year, a channel named SOFTDRINKTV posted a 14-minute video titled "The Madden with the Worst Madden of All Time," which was followed by a 19-minute film titled "Madden NFL 22 is NOT Good - Review." They re-enter an identical well last week with one titled "Everything Wrong with Madden NFL 22 (in 16 minutes)."
The narration of the video begins memorably or even a bit dramatically: "This is the kind of game that inspires you to stick on your eyes with a thumbtack. If the game is Madden 22, the gift of life is turned into one of the worst curses. It is no longer a desire to be alive. It is a source of existential fear."
Like every subculture, Madden also has its unique terminology. Precise throws have the meaning of "lasers" (self-explanatory). The most common throw is an "dot" -- you get "dotted up" -- which has changed into "dart" (less than self-explanatory). In the same way, a strong defensive line was previously "bagged," though recently, I've heard YouTubers saying "booked." One only one that makes sense in my opinion is "mossing" someone or a receiver leaps over a corner to catch the ball out of the air, inspired from Randy Moss.
But hating Madden is as much a part of the popular culture, even though it seems somewhat invasive at times. The subreddit r/Madden is almost entirely "rants" about the reasons why Madden is a mess, and usually just a video clip of a bug or glitch. The tag #Madden22 that is on TikTok is an equal part highlights, as well as calling for the busted plays EA should fix. However, in the event that you don't like a video game that often, why do you continue to play it year in and year out?
To Andrew Belton, Madden earns him his keep. The game has been played since 2005 Madden, but more crucially, YouTubing since his 2018 Madden. His channel has developed to the point where he earns a living from it, enough to move out of his parents' place and into a house in Brooklyn. (He also sells ebooks containing Madden tips through buy madden coins cheap his Patreon estimated is a third of his revenue.)
