Although this discussion is not directly aimed at Fifa, it is Fifa that has caused this. While in a game store today i saw 2K's PGA Tour Golf cover and just remembered the great golf games EA used to make.
EA made lots of sports games before they came up with the idea of ultimate team now they seem to be dropping sports if there is no chance of getting an ultimate team in the game.
I remember EA making Tennis, Cricket, Rugby, Nascar, Formula 1 and so on and the games were all about realism, there old saying was "if its in the game, its in the game", now all EA seem to care about is this unrealistic ultimate team with Messi playing alongside Ronaldo and a load of old retired has beans.
I dont want this in my games, the reason i play Fifa is for the real teams,players, leagues, stadiums and kits and have the game as it is in real life.
Start getting back to basics and making more Sports games its what you do well.
