John Madden Stars in ‘Virtual Training’ Video

Madden NFL 09 `Virtual Training` Video

Anytime you’ve got John Madden standing there talking, you’re bound to have something unintentionally hilarious. Such is the case with the new Madden NFL 09 ‘Virtual Training’ video, which gives you a look at the tests you take in order to determine your Madden IQ. As you’d expect from a guy who talks about the most blatantly obvious things, the tests are the fundamentals of football, but good ole John is right there to explain it to you anyway.

I don’t really understand why EA Sports decided they needed to make this look like a virtual reality training video from an old movie. The NFL license is their big edge, so why not take advantage of it and let the person pick their favorite team and use those players for the test? It’s a minor gripe, but it seems silly to do it like this.

“What you wanna do here is is is try and get the ball in the endzone so you can get more points than the other guys.” -John Madden quote, or at least something that’s very very close to what he’s likely said in the past
