Yesterday was like a national holiday for football degenerates everywhere, because EA Sports released its latest version of Madden. The new game features a number of upgrades in the game engine (finally) which should mean a more realistic NFL experience.
That’s all fine and good but to be honest what has impressed me most when I see clips of the new game is how stunningly realistic the players look.
Check out this footage of the New York Jets facing off with the New England Patriots, where digital Michael Vick leads the digital Jets on an impressive digital touchdown drive. (Try not to focus on the score and just on the beautiful CGI.)
I want it now.
