Ca-caw!


Ever since the team's inception, I've been a member of the Ravens Nation. After a quick victory in Super Bowl XXXIV, we've been so close yet so far so many times.

Now, we have another shot in 2013.

I mean, we all know The Ravens are going to win today. Hell, even Madden knows it. But you want to know why? Because these videogames have inspired Ray Lewis and his boys more than any pre-game ritual could ever do.

These are the videogames that are going to take them all the way.

Metal Gear Solid

Ray Lewis' dances have been likened to that of a shamanistic ritual. Of course, he learned from the best. The one, the only, Vulcan Raven -- grand master shaman of the Metal Gear Solid universe himself.

Did you know that Vulcan Raven is an Olympian and sports enthusiast? Yep, just take it from the big man: "There is another event that I excel at. It is called the ear pull. It is an event where two contestants pull each others' ears while enduring the harsh cold."

That's like, basically football, dudes.

That's So Raven: Psychic On The Scene

What's the only thing better than Raven-Symoné? Raven-Symoné with psychic powers.

Based on the #1 hit TV show That's So Raven, this point and click adventure game for the DS doesn't take shit from anyone, as Raven and the gang stop the beloved Thompson theater from meeting an untimely end.

Selfless acts of altruism? That's so Baltimore Ravens.

Castlevania

Sometimes the biggest winners come in the smallest packages. Crowned as one of the most annoying, most persistent enemies of all time, the Castlevania Raven's tenacity can't be topped.

That's The Ravens D at gametime -- all up in San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick's business without fail. Kaepernick? More like Sackpernick.

Tekken 5

Raven from the Tekken series has an X shaped scar on his face, mostly because he's pretty goddamn extreme. No one even knows how old he is or where he comes from (badass).

He's an OG competitor that was rumored to be based on both Muay Thai Champion Michael McDonald and the now B-list actor Wesley Snipes.

Wesley Snipes even thinks he's a vampire in real life! That's true warrior spirit right there.

Earthbound's Spiteful Crow is one of the baddest birds in gaming. Billed as one of the toughest early-game mobs in all of RPG-dom, these dudes can swipe stuff from Ness and his crew faster than you can say "Randy Moss is washed up."

Alright so the Spiteful Crow is not quite a raven, but it's close enough. Probably.

Raven Software

Why pick one more individual game when I can pick like, a billion? Heretic, Hexen, X-Men Legends, Origins: Wolverine -- all badass games. And who made them? Raven Software.

Just look at that badass bird logo -- look familiar? Yeah I thought so -- it's the winning flag, flying high in the sky in New Orleans.

See you at game time!

EA spent tons of money on this 'kooky' 'viral' Madden trailer

I bet the people involved had a lot of fun shooting this offbeat Madden 15 commercial. It's also an obviously expensive production (beyond the celebrity costs) meant to be "weird" and, hopefully, shared (viral) over the Net....more
