    Right, I am a fairly new fan of the NFL. Had a blast this season but still getting to grips with the rules and have virtually no idea about key stats or player profiles.

    I would love to play an NFL game on the PS4. Not bothered about online yet coz I'll, quite frankly, just be awful.
    So which one do I get?
    NFL 25, 16 and 17 are all £10 for the physical disc from Amazon.
    NFL 18 is £25 on PSN
    NFL 19 is £35 on Amazon for the physical and £50 on PSN.

    I'm tempted with '17 based on the price but I hear '18 has those most significant improvements overall.

    All suggestions/recommendations welcome!

    If you want the latest rosters and features then go with Madden 19. 18 is definitely the better one out of 25,16,17. Really just depends on how much you want to spend.

    I haven’t bought a madden game in years tbh. But i would go with 19 for the updated roster. If you don’t care about the updated roster, I think 18 had a better rank overall. I’ll probably buy it eventually or just wait for the new one in the summer.

    Also, even if you don’t like baseball as a sport. The game itself is fun and addictive as h---. MLB the show 18 is great.

    Yeah I've had MLB (in general) on my PSN wishlist for years. Just haven't got round to it!

    I don't think I'll bother with '19 yet just in case I don't like it. NFL '18 is looking the most likely at the moment.

    Madden 19 is the first that I haven't purchased since I think whatever year Eddie George was on the cover lol. I liked 18. Really wish that NFL 2K was still a thing. 2K5 might be my favorite football game I ever played.
