As somebody who gave FIFA 18 his official 2018 GOTY award, I can safely say at least one person was much more excited by the FIFA 19 reveal than either of those two you mentioned

But how can you claim to be excited about a game that you 100% knew was coming (because it literally comes every year) based on a franchise that is certainly good but only making iterative improvements on the same thing over and over again? I'm sure the new mode will be cool, but how is a minor change/addition the same as, say, a whole new IP like Splatoon with gameplay unlike anything seen before? 

Almost all sports games are virtually identical to their past iterations. Make a few tweaks, add a few tackle animations, push a marginally different mode...but then still have 95% of the actual gameplay identical to last year's model. At least racing games have new tracks and fighting games have new characters and open worlds have new maps to explore. A sports game will always have players faffing about with a ball on the same playing field doing nearly identical things ad nauseum. 

Final Fantasy's Blitzball had more variety to it than any football/basketball games. Sure, it was nowhere near as refined, but it was more interesting because it at least had some variety to it. 

My point is, I can't fathom how someone could be excited for 'sports ball 2018' when it's 90% the same game as 'sports ball 2017'. I get that it has that feeling like it's an excuse to return to an old favorite if you're into that, but to be super excited for it when it's basically the same thing? I just don't get that. 

All I get from these EA sports announcements is 'yep, it's another sports game, but this time it's slightly better'. 

When the internet is throwing a fit over Dark Souls Remastered just being Dark Souls with some performance tweaks and better online, it strikes me as odd to hear similar people buying the same football game once a year for a decade straight. 

Because season 3 of The Journey, the addition of the Champions League/Europa League (technically they were already in the career mode with fake names, but it will be cool to have them in their own mode, especially since it's been a few years since I even touched the career mode), and hopefully the addition of new icons. Those are reasons to hype it!

And as much as I love Blitzball, that no way had more variety than FIFA. Not in match, and certainly not out of match. For one thing, the AI in FIFA has some variety and isn't completely brain-dead like the Blitzball AI

Sooo ... I guess it was more worthwhile of my time to play Mother 3 and then watch the thread instead of the conference itself ^^ Nice.

They announced the Champions League that's HUGE. You don't like it that is fine but you are being Selfish for hating that they show it. 






I wasnt going to watch it until I was bored enough with nothing better to do. lol

welp thats an hour i will never get back. Nice C&C bastardized game to mobile, that was THE most disappointing. I can see maybe liking Anthem. BF5 will be talked about more tomorrow.

I would have liked to have seen Skate 4 and an ME trilogy remaster, 60fps 4k,

Now I am really looking forward to maybe ubisoft, but will be there to watch the MS presentation. The bar is very low with this start.

 

edit: also forgot about the new game from Respawn, I will be giving serious consideration for this game even if it is starwars, i really like Respawn.

I was super keen for Anthem.
Visually it is showing us what Frostbite can do and it is pretty impressive.

But when I discovered it had more in common with say... Destiny rather than Biowares older titles (I.E. Single player driven.) I was completely turned off.

Battlefield 5 I am still on the fence about.

Unravel was a great game, so it is nice to see a sequel is coming. I will certainly pick it up. Anthem is also interesting to me. It is hard for me to get excited about a game that is (likely) a year or so away though.



Only real surprise was Unravel 2 both debuting and launching today. Sea of Solitude looks nice, too. I'm warming up to BFV and on the fence about Anthem (wanna see some less generic TPS gameplay). At least EA's monetization schemes are becoming more palatable. C&C looks alright for a mobile game, though I'm sure many fans are disappointed. The commentary in general was cringeworthy (crowbcat intensifies). Good to hear Hazelight is expanding, though.

Actually, I just realized that Unravel 2 is out today.  So, I'll be picking it up tonight.  



New C&C, yay...
Maybe next year.

Try another 10.

 

0/10 for me. C&C mobile for a "new geenration" was the straw that broke the camels back.


Get bent EA. You destroyed a beloved RTS franchise, buried it and dug it up again to farm the whales.
