Holidays have become very important for MMOs. It allows the developers and players to breathe a bit and just have some good old fashioned fun. My favorite has always been Halloween, and it's just right around the corner. Sadly, there isn't a lot of attention being thrown towards it.

But recently, after years away from sports games, I picked up both this year's Madden and NBA 2K15.
