    This thread has reached the point where it's too big to check if stuff was posted...

    I'll just post something original this time:P

    I wonder why people buy the same soccer game again and again each year.
    (Actually I wonder why people buy soccer games in the first place, but that's unrelated)

    Haven't bought any game with the EA logo in a loong time.

    It gives you a sense of pride and accomplishment.

    Like a list of dumb things you must have done at least once during your life?

    - Try drugs
    - Get arrested
    - Buy an EA Sports game [CHECK]
    and so on...

    Haha, well there are certain things I think people should try at least once in their lives to gain experience without limiting yourself to how everyone else lives, but I'll tone it down for the meme box.
    Also I believe EA Sports games were decent once upon a time, personally never a fan of sports games though. The only ones I enjoyed were a virtua tennis game and cricket game on the PSP.

    Hmm, I don't like sports games either, unless you count things like Mario Tennis on GBC, maybe. That was kinda fun.

    I'm still a bit sour over EA buying Westwood and ruining Command & Conquer as that was one of my favourite game series.
    I guess the issue with EA Sports is lazy, half assed sequelitis. Sometimes less is more, but that hasn't arrived at EA yet.

    Not sure if you saw it, but I posted that here recently. EA gets a lot of hate, but most of it is well deserved.
    I wouldn't be surprised if they just made one FIFA game for example with high end PC graphics, and increase the settings from low to ultra with every release, changing a few minor things, and spending 90% of the budget on market research for better use of lootboxes.

    I am excited for the new Star Wars game though, I hope they don't fuck it up.

    Football games are fun every now and then, same for basketball ones, a random match or two every now and then is a nice way to pass the time, especially on handheld consoles, I often go play FIFA 14 on PSP for example and since you can customize some stuff you can try scoring the funniest goals you can or something:P

    As for why people are ok with a new game each year, you are clearly forgetting how sports fans are even more sheep-like than apple fanboys:rofl2: Any person with a brain would instead oppose it considering for the most part the changes can easily be applied with a patch... And hell, you can play old sports games just fine, they are exactly as fun as they ever were, you can customize or add players manually to keep rosters up to date and all that WITHOUT microtransactions, that just shows how stupid sports fans are when they buy the new re-re-re-re-re-re-re-re-release of the same game for the 10th time!

    The picture is not showing, but I get what you say. It's extremely lazy and the costumers probably realized it by now.

    Even the most devoted fan will stop buying sequel xyz after a while when it adds nothing new.

    It's like an even worse form of creating one successful game and then milking that for years to come without ever putting any effort in creating a worthwhile successor.

    Or the old hiding old content that's already created behind a DLC paywall method.

    Edit:
    @ThoD:
    Yeah, I forgot about the whole sports fanboyism thing. I guess that applies to the games as well.

    I usually make a quick leave when people start talking about sports, especially soccer. Just not my world.

    Indeed. Also I think you saw my post immediately after I posted it, the image was broken then, seconds later I changed it to a link, check it out. :P
