I forgot, they were getting rid of it for only $19.99. Plus, they released it early to try to get a jump on Madden. Even so, when Madden came out people were lined up at every gaming store in town eager to lay down the $49.99, or $59.99 for the collector's edition.
I've never played 2k5 myself, but I know some football gaming fanatics who agree with you and wouldn't touch the game if you gave it to them. Still, I'm sure there are people who love the game and are very happy they saved some money.
