| Madden bring back the ambulance coming onto the field running people over on the way to an injured guy
Back in 1998 my buddies and I played a season in Madden where I randomly drew the Detroit Lions as my team. I resolved to give Barry Sanders the ball an inhuman amount.
So a bunch of us are hanging out and I'm getting a game in with one of the other guys. As I'm reaching for my beer after Barry's 25th run of the first half I hear someone say, "He's not getting up." In horror I look up to see a broken Barry Sanders lying motionless on the field. Over everyone else's laughter someone else says, "Bring out the ambulance!" You'll remember that the ambulance was usually the indicator of the severity of the injury...
Out the ambulance came. In all my years of playing video games that's as horrified as I've ever been by a single moment.
