The Madden games feature realistic graphics and fun gameplay, but some football enthusiasts prefer games that focus more on simulating actual NFL football games.

SportsSims: http://www.sportsims.net/

Strat-O-Matic: http://www.somworld.com/

Front Office Football

Although the related Baseball Mogul has been more popular, Football Mogul has been around for an entire decade. The game features a number of options that allows players to simulate seasons and more. Some are purchased and downloaded, while others are played online. The game has gone through many enhancements focusing in both general management aspects of gameplay as well as the simulation part of the football games themselves. The results are based on actual NFL stats, so the results are accurate from a statistical standpoint.

Other Simulations

Strategy focuses on the gamer calling formations and various plays. Later editions added the ability to call plays, but the game’s main focus has been on the front office aspects (hence, the name).

This simulation has been around since the days of DOS, and gameplay is largely the same as it was 20 years ago.

This game features both a professional version and a college version. These are known generally as text-based simulations. Players can simulate individual games as well as entire seasons or multiple seasons. Each year, the company sells million of copies each year.
