I've been a Saints fan since 2008, and my most recent Madden game is Madden 11. However, now that I'm in college, I don't have a console or an updated football game. That's why I'm looking into getting Madden 08 for the PC and modding it for 2017. The only thing holding me back is Amazon reviewers saying that the game won't install right on Windows 10.

Welcome aboard!

Madden will install fine on Windows 10 (I have it myself). The main problem you'll run into is actually getting it to run after installing due to Windows 10 disabling SafeDisc drivers, which handles using the game's disc/DVD to run the game. There are easy ways to fix it, though.

It would have been fine if Windows had just disabled the drivers. They straight up removed them from the OS (for valid reasons, though.)

I went and bought the downloadable version off Amazon, in fact my laptop doesn't even have a disc drive at all. Does this still matter?

SafeDisc drivers don't require a disc drive. It's a system driver that is used as copy protection by many older games. You'll still likely have some issues, even with the Amazon version.

Hi guys! I love this game! Looking for some updated NCAA stuff (and NFL, but NCAA more)! I just posted this to be able to gain access to PMs and downloads!

I'm LT #78. I've been into mods and rosters for Madden PC since the Football Freaks days, where I think my user name was No78. The historic rosters are my favorite. I use them for research purposes to create weird custom teams (eg: a team of all the best players who rode motorcycles, a team consisting entirely of players who come from the state of Montana, a team consisting entirely of guys who were nationally competitive in Track & Field).

I'm also into baseball and hockey.

I remember you! You even got onto the FF All Star rosters that were in the old FF mods. Welcome back! :D

Hello Everyone! Found your forum through a friend recommendation and thought I'd introduce myself.

You can call me Errahs (Air-us)! My favorite team is (unfortunately) the Indy Colts. I also enjoy seeing Aaron Rodgers and the GBP go to work on the field.

Pass it deep, then lateral it. It's just how you win. /s
