Museum of the Moving Image hosting Madden NFL exhibition starting tomorrow

Posted on January 8, 2014 AT 01:36pm

Starting tomorrow, the Museum of the Moving Image in Astoria, New York will host an exhibition that examines the 25-year history of EA’s Madden NFL series, its curators announced today.

The exhibition, titled Madden NFL: 25 Years and Running, will focus the “aesthetic evolution, cultural legacy, and enduring focus on simulation” and will last until February 23. Five playable games will be featured: the original 1988 John Madden Football on Apple II, Madden NFL ’94 on Sega Genesis, Madden NFL 99 on PlayStation, Madden NFL 2005 on Xbox, and Madden NFL 25 on Xbox One.

“The Madden NFL franchise offers a compelling story about the significant influence blockbuster videogames have in popular culture,” Jason Eppink, associate curator of digital media, said in a press release. “This exhibition explores 25 years of iteration to examine a videogame and its publisher, whose relationship with the professional sport it seeks to simulate has grown increasingly intertwined.”
