“I’ve discovered lots of different ways to hack Madden NFL 25 into a thing that no longer resembles football as we know it. I’ve played around with rules, injury settings, all manner of player ratings, player dimensions, and anything else the game’s developers have made available to us.”

This is Breaking Madden, a series on SB Nation where Jon Bois experiments with anything editable in Madden to create unrelenting scenarios that test the affordances of the video game, the limits of the NFL simulation, and the rules of football. Jon will be here to talk about his experiences producing Breaking Madden, the game of American football, and his upcoming Breaking Madden Super Bowl. Join us for an in-depth discussion of football just in time for the Super Bowl!
