Madden NFL 19 is bringing the pro football gaming franchise back to personal computers. A lot has changed in the decade since the game last graced PCs and the game control system is pretty complicated. This isn't as noticeable when playing with a gamepad, but many PC gamers love to play games with a keyboard and mouse. Madden NFL 19 will support this style of gameplay, but the controls are locked into specific keybindings. Please take a look.
