Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

February 1, 2009 -

The Pittsburgh Steelers will win Super Bowl XLIII by a score of XXVIII - XXIV.

At least, that's the word from EA Sports. The publisher used its best-selling Madden NFL 2009 to predict the outcome of today's big game.

An EA Sports press release says that the game will be close:

Holding off a fourth quarter comeback by the Cardinals, the Steelers bring the Vince Lombardi trophy back to the Steel City for the second time in the past four years and for a sixth time in franchise history, setting an NFL record.

GP: So, GamePolitics readers, who do you think will win? Leave a comment with your prediction of the final score...

That's pretty amazing - only one point difference for each team.  Maybe it's time to retire the real superbowl and just go with the Madden one.  Then maybe we can reintroduce cricket to America, LOL.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

Wow just subtract 1 point from each team.

Steelers by 10 to beat the spread.

And I've mentioned it practically every time I came around over the past week, but a certain armchair ex-lawyer had the Cards by 14 in one of his rambling meta-posts on the NY game bill story.  I couldn't drag out a further explanation from him, unfortunately.

Personally, I saw his prediction as a thinly veiled analogy to himself, you know with the underdog pulling out the win and all.

Then again, maybe I'm giving Jack a little too much credit.

If I end up doing anything today, I will probably be playing Metroid Prime. Stupid Meta Ridley killed me last time I played him.

Lemme guess, Prime 1, right? Easy kill. Plasma Beam, not Super Missiles. Saves your Missiles for when you need them. Prime 3 can be a bit of trouble. I'll save my advice for Meta Ridley in that game for when you reach it.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

I never liked football. On the rare occasion that I did end up watching, I always rooted for the clock.

I think I'll play No More Heroes tonight instead.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

Steelers will win. Score is irrelevant.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

anytime score is irrelevant, I think of this:

Marge: So many choices... Can't I just bet that all the horses will have a good time?

Bookie: You want that line. (Points over to the counter labeled "Wuss Bets")

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

Do... Do you actually want a list of who cares?

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

So what's the context?  Do these Madden "official pre-plays" have any record of accurate predictions?

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

yeah, they say they've picked 4 of last 5 winners.

 

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

I really don't care as I'm not into sports at all.  And whenever the Superbowl comes up, I always think of Andy Milonakis' "Superbowl is Gay" song.

If I do watch it at all, it'll be for the commercials, especially the movie trailers.  A lot of the ones they'll be showing are for ones I'm especially interested in seeing including Star Trek, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra, Race to Witch Mountain and Land of the Lost.  Then again, I can see them all online if I miss them.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

I was gonna use my old school Football Handheld from Mattel.  The one with a bunch of little lights that are supposed to represent players and the football.

Re: Madden Predicts Steelers Will Win... What About You?

Cardinals 27, Steelers 24

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Hornets, Jack Thompson can geaux chase a chupacabra.

Geaux Saints, Geaux Tigers, Geaux Pelicans. Even through the darkest days, this fire burns always.

Re: Madden 2009 Predicts Steelers Will Win Super Bowl

Lord help me, but I'm seeing red, 27-20.

Re: Madden 2009 Predicts Steelers Will Win Super Bowl

It all depends on the ability of the Steelers to pressure Warner and force turnovers.  If they can keep him off balance, the Steelers win going away, 30 - 13.

If not, I see a closer game with the Steelers winning 24 -20.

Matthew Wilson@EZK that is why I did say AAA needs to take more risks. I hope horizon does well, but Guerrilla Games has a mixed track record.06/30/2015 - 9:59pm
E. Zachary KnightBut how do you know a game is good before the game's release? If we don't know a game will be good until it is on the market, how are we ever going to get women leads?06/30/2015 - 9:56pm
Matthew Wilsonbut yes the AAA space needs to take more risks.06/30/2015 - 9:44pm
Matthew Wilson@EZK we need more female leads for sure, but if the game isnt good to start with it, or does not matter.06/30/2015 - 9:41pm
E. Zachary KnightMatt, But if we don't include more women leads in games, the chances of them leading a good game drops considerably. That is a big problem. The games industry is already risk adverse and you seem to be suggesting that it stay that way.06/30/2015 - 9:36pm
MattsworknameWhining about games not haaving enought females, thats foolish, cause if the games are good, then the lead will be well known as a result.see alex vance, she wasn't even the playable lead, but she's so well known cause half life 2 was such an amazing game06/30/2015 - 9:04pm
MattsworknameOn the subject of gaming. Im of the opinion that, its fine if there are more FEMALE leads, but if the game itself isn't good? then your doing a disservice by having a female lead cause they wont get any recognition or attention.06/30/2015 - 9:01pm
Mattsworknameandrew, im not as hyped, without the origional cast, I feel it just won't have the same impact . I'll still give ti a shot, but my expectations are low for it. Its a shame we lost ramis.06/30/2015 - 8:57pm

Andrew EisenI am so completely over-the-moon with excitement for the new Ghostbusters movie! It's going to absolutely destroy me if it sucks. Long wait. Fingers crossed!06/30/2015 - 7:00pm
Goth_SkunkAdditionally, the entry really doesn't have much of a point to it. It's just a long, rambling rant akin to what an angsty high-school student would write on their facebook page.06/30/2015 - 6:51pm
MonteAnd most of those viewpoints just so happen to revolve around women and topics that feminists cover, and not actual gaming journalism.06/30/2015 - 6:51pm
Goth_Skunk@DocMelonhead: First off, thanks for using an archive. Second, I would argue that Miss Alexander doesn't know the right women. Given the members of her echo-chamber, I don't find that surprising in the least.06/30/2015 - 6:50pm
Goth_Skunk@Monte: GamerGate does not focus attention on feminists; it focuses its attention on viewpoints it happens to disagree with. The fact that most of those opinions happen to come from radical feminists is a coincidence.06/30/2015 - 6:31pm
Andrew EisenBut hey, we all make bad videos from time to time. I'm certainly not going to hold that single one against her.06/30/2015 - 6:31pm
Andrew EisenAh, okay. I probably don't read their blogs or follow them on Twitter so I've never heard anything they've had to say. The only thing I know about Sommers is the video we reported on a while back and I certainly wouldn't classify that as scholarly!06/30/2015 - 6:30pm
Goth_SkunkAlso, "junior campus feminist" is a young (late teens to late 20's, hence "junior") college student radical activist (see Emma Sulkowicz as an example). This, as opposed to a more mature, scholarly feminist like Sommers.06/30/2015 - 6:24pm
Andrew EisenNo, because "feminisim" isn't a group. There are feminist groups with leaders though.06/30/2015 - 6:23pm
Goth_SkunkDoes Feminism have a leader?06/30/2015 - 6:19pm
