I buy FIFA every year ever since I switched from PES in 2011. I buy it because it’s the best football game out there, very flawed, yes, and probably 90% the same as the FIFA the year before. But I know I will play it a lot anyway, just love football too much not to play. Great banter with friends, too.
The list of things that annoy me on FIFA is endless. Especially the scripting and handicapping bullshit.
EA have played it well, they know their game is flawed and only work hard on improving their cash cow FUT. The game will sell anyway.
