If there is any Michigan athlete that I would go through the free trial hassle of that site for just so I could read an article about them, it would be Denard.

I also still play the PS2 NCAA Game (NCAA 11). I firmly believe that EA hasn't made a playable game since that gen. I don't think they're simply bad but literally unplayable. Stiff, robotic animations, bad player models and atrocious physics. True Fact: the ball didn't even spin more than once on any pass until NCAA 09, IIRC. 40 yard throw? One rotation. 4 yard dump? One rotation. Oh, the UI was atrocious even up to NCAA14. Slow, buggy trash. Literally unplayable to me.

 

Horrible games starting with the PS3/360 generation. Anyway...

 

I currently play NCAA 11 on PS4 via the 5.05 exploit. It has a built-in PS2 emulator and I made my own PS2 Classic to run on it. After tweaks I'm playing it in 1080p, 60fps. Looks so crisp.

 As for emulation, there is not a viable PS3 emulator available. PCSX2 is a great PS2 emulator (Sony basicslly stole that for PS4, even uses similar config files). Works great on a moderate PC. Similar PS3 emulation is at least a decade off. PCSX3 technically exists but you'd get about 10fps and major glitches from even a very strong sytem. The PS3 architecture was just too strange to emulate on what is common hardware in PCs.

Just glad to see another that agrees the PS2 era football games were best. I don't know why they messed with them in later gens as Madden is garbage to this day for the same reasons. They merely polished a turd.
