In my opinion, the FIFA franchise from EA Sports has made more noticeable improvements in the last couple of years than the other major sports titles put together. The realistic physics for both the players as they interact with one another, as well as the ball (which is no longer tied to your foot on an invisible string), have made for a more authentic footballing experience. The inclusion of your Virtual Pro across all game modes, the revamped Career and Be a Pro modes, and a wealth of online options, made FIFA 11 the best soccer game I'd played to date. By continually honing what has worked in the past, EA Sports has added a whole slew of new options, both online and off, making FIFA 12 the complete package both in terms of depth and realism. Truth be told, the beautiful game has never been prettier.
