Complete 30 Years of Franchise

Successfully complete 30 years of Franchise mode.  

Happy Simulating!!

Just keep simulating through the preseason, regular season, and postseason. This will take you several hours and will require you to be somewhat active, so have a good book or something handy. The system will "run out of years" in the year 2035, which is when you get your achievement.

Most of these are self-explanatory, but here's what I did. Before anything go to Options : Gameplay, gimp the CPU and boost yourself. This will make it to where your receivers never drop a ball and your running back will break away and run down the entire field. Every achievement can be obtained in one game except for the Super Bowl and 30 years. 

The first game I played was the longest. I got every achievement I could in that single game, the score was around 255 to 20. Then I simulated the rest of the season until the playoffs. The stat boost from the game I played allowed my team to make it to the playoffs. Then, I set the quarter time to 2 minute quarters, and won the playoff games and the Super Bowl. From there I simulated 29 more years.

I got distracted while doing this:

after bouncing from the Packers (5 years) to the Jaguars (2 years) and landing with the in Houston I decided to actually do something, still simming but making personnel changes, I went 4-12, 7-9, with Carr at the helm (somehow he managed to be an 87 rated QB all the way in 2014. I decided to trade him for someone younger and wound up trading him along with a 2nd and 3rd rounder, for Aaron Rodgers (then with the Chiefs)and a 4th round pick when my team was 4-6, they finished that year 8-8 (4-2 post trade), in the draft I took control and picked up a RB in the first round. the following season the team finished 10-6, earning a trip to the playoffs, and won the SB, I signed the RB long-term, and won the SB again the next year. My defense is now stacked,

Just keep simulating through the game... what does that mean? How do you sim??? (sorry if thats a stupid question.)

1) this game is old. Get it at GameStop for $3.00 so if it's really scratchy you don't have to worry about losing your s/h on amazon returns. Get newer used games from Amazon. :)

2) I found where to max my stats but is there a place to "gimp the CPU" stats or were you just saying that as that would be a result of maxing my stats?

I haven't played a sports game since my old hand-held coleco football game (nostalgia!), and I know I would like these if nothing more than just some easy gamer score and a little better understanding of the sport, but all of these options are overwhelming. I picked up M'06 and M'08 on sale for dirt cheap. I was nervous I would be stuck with one or two achievements and not be able to figure it out but so far, so good.

On another note, the M'08 will need t

id reccomend simming the first season till you get to the superbowl, then just playing that to get all but the last cheevo, them simming the rest of the seasons while watching netflix, means you 0nly really need to play 1 game lol, got this game for a buck yesterday at gamestop.

A dollar? Jeez you guys overpaid! I got it for $.50! :P

This is the single most valuable ach I've ever seen though personally. It's annoying, but I'm doing a few seasons at a time when I have nothing better to do with my time than flip between something on TV and simming.

Doing this now... Is it best to not simulate the off-season tasks and actually do them myself? Seems to be taking ages!

I wish you could completely skip the offseason because that's what makes it take so long. Otherwise it would only take like and hour and a half.

never trusted gamestop, so i got this game at amazon for $5,new, yea i know i overpaid but i never buy used game. the rushing achievement is so f***ing annoying, cant figure out why i cant get it within 5 min quarter

This game took me four hours to get every achievement in the game. All the Maddens are really easy to get all the achievements. Madden 2008 took me 2 hours to get all the achievements. If you do not have a friend to help you, just plug in controller number two and do it yourself. Just control both teams. Its tricky, but you can do it!

@43 i saw the Avatar achievements (only 5, everyone says they're easy) but i still wouldnt get it because of how bad my friends would diss me
also, when simulating, wont you run out of money to sign players just simulating every year?

Don't forget to save as your simming. I got to season 2031 and my disc became unreadable, so had to start over :-( back to 2025 at the moment...

Saturday, December 29, 2012 @ 07:46:43 PM

I am really glad that this isn't 60 years like NCAA 07. That took FOREVER, simming through a season on this goes way faster

Monday, December 31, 2012 @ 06:40:54 PM

I was fired by New England and went to Cleveland... Does that kill the achievement?

Comment #60 by Yaus98
Monday, December 31, 2012 @ 10:09:11 PM

I got it after Pro Bowl 2033, so basically 2034.

Comment #61 by PHOPOW
Monday, May 13, 2013 @ 11:27:57 AM

Got it. Super easy 400 cheevo even if it's a bit time consuming. Took me a little over 4 hours. All I can say is just SIM SIM SIM. It's that easy. SIM the pre-season, regular season, and off season. Even go ahead and SIM the picks and retirements and sign ins and such. You will see the Franchise season years progress upward. When you get to the year 2034 "BOOP" there is your 400g cheevo. And I suck at sports games. ALSO, remember to SAVE if you have to step away from your XBOX. This does NOT have an auto-save feature. You MUST manually go in and save.

Comment #62 by PHOPOW
Monday, May 13, 2013 @ 12:26:32 PM

@#59. No, being fired does not kill the cheevo. I was also fired from New England around season 28 and went to Washington. I just kept simulating after that like nothing happened and still got the cheevo.

Very easy, you definitely just sit back and watch a movie whilst going through the controller motions for this simulation.

Currently trying to earn this achievement, hard to believe that this game over 8 years old! Time really does fly, lmao!

Comment #66 by SuposatoryHeero
Monday, July 07, 2014 @ 08:05:22 AM

*Easy Way*

-pretty much the whole basis of getting this achievement is simply simulating. I found it easy to simulate, then watch a movie or play with apps on my phone.
-the only downfall to this, is you have to control a little bit during each season, so you cant just lay the control down for longer then a minute, but its 400g which is worth it :_)

At least the music that plays in the background is enjoyable. I was jammin while making coffee, surfin the web, doing laundry, etc. In my sim they had Payton Manning as a hall of famer in 2012, which means he would have retired in 2007. Funny, huh?
