Madden NFL 13

Something called the "Infinity Engine" had people talking following the press conference this week when EA unveiled the latest incarnation of the Madden football franchise.
Madden NFL 13's "Infinity Engine" is "a system that augments animation based on contact with other players or objects on the field," an enhanced AI meant to deliver an extra level of authenticity to Madden NFL 13.
