Next week, Madden ’17 hits shelves and homes.

It’s amazing to think we’re not far away from the 30th anniversary of the video game. Madden NFL has undergone so many changes over the decades — but so has the way we play and see video games — and to see all the changes in one place is absolutely fascinating.

The folks at put together this awesome infographic about the evolution of Madden NFL from 1988 until now.

“August 23rd marks the release of Madden NFL ’17, the 29th game in the Madden football franchise. The video game franchise that’s been around longer than most NFL players has undergone quite a bit of changes over the years. The original John Madden Football that was released in 1988 didn’t even include actual NFL teams and featured graphics that made it difficult to tell which player was holding the ball. Over time, though, the graphics continued to improve and several features were added, such as team and player rankings, new controls, and modes like franchise and owner mode, among many other things. Madden NFL ’17 promises to have a bunch of new features relating to offense, defense, and special teams.”

Check out the evolution of the game and be glad this isn’t 1988.
