Revealed: the states where Madden 23 is most popular
- Louisiana tops rankings with highest search levels for NFL video game
- Delaware is second, while Alabama places third
- Maryland, home to the Baltimore Ravens ranks sixth
- The state least interested in Madden 23 is Oregon, while California has second lowest search levels
New research has revealed that Louisiana is the state most obsessed with video game Madden 23
The study by online gaming site minesweeper-challenge.com analyzed Google Trends data on the level of searches for “Madden 23” and “Madden 23 release date” over the past 12 months in each state to discover where in America is keenest on the NFL game.
Louisiana tops the rankings, recording the highest levels of searches for both of the Madden-related terms. The New Orleans Saints has an overall team rating of 83 on the latest version of the game, while their top rated player is Tyrann Mathieu whose overall rating of 94 makes him the game’s best strong safety.
Delaware is firmly in second place for its Madden 23 obsession, scoring second highest in searches for both terms. This is despite the fact that the state isn’t home to an NFL team, although neighbouring Maryland and Pennsylvania offer fans nearby teams to root for and play as.
Alabama places third for its high search levels for “Madden 23” and “Madden 23 release date”, and is the second state in the top three which isn’t home to an NFL team.
Ohio is in fourth and is home to both the Cincinnati Bengals and the Cleveland Browns. The Browns boast one of just four players in the game to have a 99 overall rating – superstar defensive end Myles Garret. Meanwhile the Bengals’ Joe Mixon ranks as their top player, with an overall rating of 93.
America’s fifth most Madden-obsessed state is Mississippi, while sixth goes to Maryland and seventh to West Virginia.
At the other end of the scale, Oregon ranks as the state with the least interest in Madden 23. Search levels in the state are at a third of the level of Louisiana’s. Meanwhile, out of the 50 states plus Washington DC, California takes 50th when it comes to searches for the game, behind Vermont in 49th and New York in 48th.
Commenting on the study, a spokesperson for Minesweeper Challenge said: “The release of the latest Madden game each year always gets fans talking, so it’s fascinating to see which parts of the US have been most interested in the game. Since its release in August we’ve also seen a split between critical and fan opinions on the game, with professional reviewers broadly positive about it, while user reviews have been rather more negative.”
The study was conducted by Minesweeper Challenge, which is dedicated to providing a fun Minesweeper site that is also beneficial to play.
