Convince me why I should buy Fifa 19. As an avid Fifa Pro Clubs player I am extremely disappointed at the apparent lack of improvement to the game mode. In fact I have seen zero improvements. I do not want to spend big bucks on Ultimate team and don't enjoy offline modes.
Please in form me why I should get Fifa 19 (or why not)
Red Dead 2? Now at £50-60 that is an absolute bargain. Games with quality workmanship and pride will always be worth it. Brilliant and balanced modes so you're getting what you want for the money you pay. Games like Fifa only have FUT to entice a huge playerbase and that is a pay-to-win strategy.
Yes, Rockstar uses microtransactions also, but their offline game is still full of depth and quality. EA Sports could learn from that.
Whilst you are right. I do not know everything about Fifa 19. There may be something amazing in it I don't know about. Or I may be convinced to buy due to mature reasoning. Some good replies here so far.
I used to play Seasons. Then I played UT as it is so popular. But it just seems a waste of money to me. I am good at controlling a team in pro clubs (any) and competitive in head to head modes..
I've barely played fifa in months. I did one drop in earlier and it said 2000 were online on pro clubs.
I'll take a look at that game and see if it interests me. Thanks
Fans in the crowd can now take pictures of themselves.
With these groundbreaking features, I feel i may cave in and spend some rent money on Fifa 19.
Completely misleading thing to say. Game alike red dead take years to develop. It's like comparing an assassin's creed game to skyrim or fallout.
Also, one is an open world action rpg and another is an annual sports title. You're comparing an apple to a cucumber.
Nope. I am looking for more info about why I should buy. I'm bought fifa for years. I can save a lot of time by gaining any extra info here that isn't easy for me to find. Or alternative ideas for games. Rather than playing this game for another year without getting feedback first. Some of my friends are getting fifa 19, but that isn't enough to convince me to buy right now.
When the apple and the cucumber cost the exact same price, you kind of can compare in terms of value for money.
Well, Apple is a type of phone and a cucumber is something you'd get a better signal on.
But it just sells my point more. Annual releases are unnecessary, because with the updates we get, we could easily just get it through a patch. Yes rpg games and sports titles are so different, but if Red Dead released every year it would grow tired and stale. Like Assassin's Creed.
It would be better just having patches over certain years and when they make good advancements in technology is when the games should be released properly. Otherwise people are not really getting what they're paying for. If EA were to take time out and spent it on developing better animations and AI on a higher level then surely it would be worth the wait. This is why annual sports titles always look like they've just had a lick of paint. It's not enough and that's why every year it looks like it's just been patched.
Fifa 19 with what's been added this year is perfect for an annual patch upgrade. If they cut the prices to £20-25 then it would be fair for the consumer, and the consumer comes first.
My fault didn’t give good feedback. I would get it only because the game may be more updated and will have an easier chance finding more matches or wait until Black Friday
You're asking the gaming community to change its entire system which has been running for 30 years now. Although I agree one day it will change to something similar to what you desire we are a good number of years away from that I am afraid.
The games get more than just a lick of paint but if you feel that way don't buy it. It really is that simple. Plenty of people don't though which is probably why EA are continuing to make huge amounts of money on it. If enough people genuinely didn't like it, they wouldn't buy it, big films and franchises flop all the time. It isn't as simple as saying 'people buy it because it's all they have' etc, that's rubbish. If the majority felt the way the vocal minority did, fifa would crash.
The games change plenty enough to warrant a full game price, in my opinion. If I didn't feel that way, I wouldn't buy them. I skip every couple of assassins creed games for this very reason.
No, you can't. They're different products, they just happen to fall into the category of food.
If you hold any regular title such as fifa, Madden, CoD, assassins creed etc to the standard of red dead, gta 5 etc then you're just disappointing yourself through your own misguided expectations.
There are a few reasons not to hold this standard.
1 - these games take years to produce. Like 3-5 years. If all games took that long, it would be ridiculous.
2 - they can take that long because they are less 'niche'. There will be plenty of people whose only game in common is red dead. You'll have 1 person who doesn't ever buy fifa, another who never buys CoD and another that never buys madden but there's a good chance all 3 will buy red dead. Because its a completely different style and genre of game. So they can afford to wait longer between profits.
3 - as I said before, they are totally different styles of game. Games like fallout are very deep and immersive, they have to be because they don't have the online functions that a game like fifa or CoD have. The solo campaign in CoD is almost a tutorial and generally very short but it's the online, competitive side that keep the games going for the year.
4 - there's a reason you don't see games like fallout at esports events. They aren't competitive. For games such as fifa etc to remain fresh and keep bringing in audiences, they have to launch it regularly but the cost of doing so will be pretty high. The licenses, player rights, game faces etc are a lot of work which take months to do. They aren't going to be doing all fo that for a recurring £20 a year fee. That's ridiculously cheap.
I think it's incredibly naive to just pass it off as a 'patch'.
Agreed. You are also asking for the gaming industry which has been running for 30 years to suddenly change its tune and release patches instead of annual games. The Fifa series has been running for probably most of this forums lifetime with a game coming out every year.
Yes I do believe one day we might see a system where games are patched every couple of years between releases but I cannot see that happening anytime soon.
If there was a way to remake UEFA license then I never would buy Fifa 19.
That's what EA Sports do. They always add 1 thing every year that's amazing and the rest of the game is still the same.
With UEFA license I really feel already that there's no point in buying Fifa 20, but guarantee there will be another feature (not a plethora of features) that tempts you all over again. It's how they work.
