Madden NFL 18 has a story mode, a first for a Madden game. Called "Longshot," it follows the career of fictional would-be quarterback Devin Wade. Unlike Madden 18's Ultimate Team mode, which allows you to feel like an all-powerful football god who can make record-setting numbers of touchdowns per game, Longshot isn't about winning. Instead, it's a story about overcoming loss and grief, in life and in football.
