For me, it is. Yet the irony is this is the longest I've played a Fifa game (seasonally), as I usually give in much earlier. Fifa 18 I stopped playing in the January as I bought Monster Hunter World and that took over my game time. I then jumped back in when TOTS was a few weeks old. Fifa 17 I gave up in December, I think. But yeah, I think Fifa 19 has frustrated me and angered me more than any other game I've ever played - and that's coming from someone who while playing Battlefield 3 chewed the analogue stick off a controller because the same sniper shot me 6 times in a row. True story.

So, Fifa 19, Get. To. ****.

    I look forward to seeing the same poll in 12 months in regards to 20.

    I'm finding it perversely refreshing that most of the guys who said Fifa 19 would be terrible pre-release are saying Fifa 20 has a lot of positives going for it. So I'm half expecting a decent game. For my sins.

    Those guys like Inception, Kurt, NickFUT etc. all praising the new game.

    Yup, it's been for me. Not only the countless errors content wise, but the sheer amount of glitches and errors in the gameplay was just unheard of. Combine it with the tons of server breakdowns and the complete absence of communication on EA's part, this was just a robbery.

    How they still have not fixed errors that have been in the game for 3-4 years, it's mind-boggling. This year was just too much to be acceptable.

    Gameplay wise by far the worst, mindless exploits meant that it was almost an insult to call it a football game, flick up crosses and tornado crosses, inconsistent gameplay, croqueta spams and 30 yard volleys, LB back post crosses to the wide cam in a 4231 or 4222 forcing you to need to play someone like Tots Militao or VVD fullback were all pure aids.

    Yeah definitely was the most frustrating Fifa. Been playing since 06 and first time I've ever sold the game half way through the year.
    Looking forward to Fifa 20 with fingers crossed.
    I think the key to enjoying Fifa is not taking it to seriously and staying true to yourself playing your brand of football and using the players you like regardless of results.

    far better and more realistic than this years meta, were much easier to defend than croquettas or Cross abuse.

    I dunno how realistic I would call instant lobs from cbs while defenders stutter stepped so pace bronze or silver players could blow by only to run a circle around the keeper to put the ball in goal.

    Almost as unrealistic as doing an el tornado with nobody around you, which causes your cross to be 4 times as effective, allowing your striker a simple header because the defender who marks him doesn't know how to lock onto the ball.

    For me personally, I still haven’t pre ordered Fifa 20 (every other year I’ve done it straight away) and really don’t miss the game.
    19 in terms of gameplay was the worst imo.

    Game has it's flaws but it's the people you play against that ruin it for me. Playing against friends can be fun regardless of what is wrong with the game, but everyone plays like someone is pointing a gun at them.

    Problem is there isn't a casual UT game mode. It's all win at all costs for rewards.

    People will say 19 is the worst because they expect too much from it and because it's the most recent.

    Yes it's had its mistakes, but to say it's worse than Fifa 13? That game had literally nothing to do on it.

    First game to introduce divisions, wasn't it? 5 divs only back in the day.

    I had to look at an older video but looks like it was only 5 but yeah there wasn’t much content back in the earlier ones either.

    I don't recall people complaining about the content on the old games until the new games with sbcs/wl/draft

    People complained about being bored and needing something on the older fifas. Now people are complaining that it’s 10 months in and ea isn’t pumping out new content all the time. People would lose their minds if the content was like older fifas.

    True, but also nothing special.

    It's 2019, gaming has moved on. Fifa is still stuck in 2010 for a lot of things which is sad.

    No chance 19 is the worst, one point the whole economy was broken and made the game unplayable

    Because that it what it has become. With content, you want it to be constant and for it to get better as time goes on.

    You can't be releasing sbcs in July for a mixed players pack as a lone sbc for the only content over the space of a three day period and not expect people complaining.

    Voted yes but I take it back. Only the worst gameplay wise. Content wise it's the best by far.

    Gameplay is the most important thing, I would rather have no content and no promos apart from Toty and Tots with great gameplay than loads of special cards to use with on a game with awful gameplay.

    17 and 18 were far worse than 19 imo
