Default OT: Madden 08 or 2K8?

I'm trying to decide on one of the two, because I'm not an avid video gamer, but when I do settle into a game I can literally play it from sun up to sundown. So I'm trying to decide on either of the two for the 360, basically based on the franchise modes because a game is all about the seasons for me. Which should be my first choice?

NBA 2K8, madden isnt that great. Graphics are sub par while 2k8 is real good. Features for 2k8 are also alot better. If you wanna play a game for a long time though and have live, get halo 3.

Not much into games like Halo. Though GTA will be a must have. and I'm interested in God of War.

For some reason I'm more of a football purist because of the strategy involved. And each run and pass is slightly different from the last.

While basketball is pretty much come up court, spot up shoot. Or back down dunk. Not necessarily that simple, but still. I'm betting Visual Concepts would have put out a beaut of game in 2k, but I hear that this is the best Madden in years. What I really want is the best franchise simulation available. And are the playoffs and the regular season presentation any different. Gameplay, presentation, deepest franchise are what really intrigue me. All input welcome.

but I heard that the presentation from the regular season and the playoffs was no different. That and the Super Bowl was billed up as just another ordinary game. With all of 2k's halftime shows, the end game awards, I dunno. Do they have things like player chemistry in either game? Or a race for the mvp? Easily things I could check out online but I'd like gamer feedback.
