While some remember Madden 2003 for being the first Madden to let you play online, I prefer to remember it as the Madden with the most hilariously dated soundtrack of all time: Good Charlotte. Quarasi. OK Go. Andrew W.K. Motherfucking Seether. With all due respect to the time I saw Seether open for Nickelback, there's no way this can crack the Top Ten. Pro Tip: If you ever want to experience the modern-day equivalent of a ghost town, just boot up a game like Madden 2003 and try to start a game with somebody online. Shit's eerie.
