EA (all consoles)

As the only pro player on the console gridiron (because of an exclusive deal with the NFL), EA might've been content to release the latest Madden without any offseason moves. But don't tell the commish: the franchise struts out of the locker room swollen with performance enhancers. Most prominent is quarterback vision control, an illuminated swath of turf showing the passer's line of sight. Studs like Tom Brady scan nearly sideline to sideline, while clipboard jockeys see only a fraction of the field. You can also steer airborne passes away from a DB's hungry hands, or route your receivers to the first-down markers. Madden NFL - still quite a catch.
