Hard to believe that the Madden franchise has been around for a quarter of a century, but the 25 year anniversary title has just been given a release date. August 27, 2013 is the calendar day to be circled.

Aside from making us feel really fucking old, the new title is sure to be packed with a ton of new in-game features. Madden is the elder statesman of football titles, eclipsing all others. The NFL 2K series still can't touch Madden when it comes to staying power.

What do you think? Stoked about a new Madden title? What are you looking forward to most? Let us know.
