I was big into Halo 2 and Madden a couple years ago, before I left for college and thus didn't renew my Live account. For me, it was a blast. Honestly I don't even like to play Madden anymore unless it's against someone else. I'm not super-great or anything either. I just have more incentive to beat some kid who's talking trash in my ear. Having some kid spout off in the lobby before a game of Halo 2 just makes sticking a grenade to his face that much sweeter.
