That's the honest reality.... i've been telling myself the next year will be better since fifa 11...
a lot of people always look back at the old games (fifa 11,12,13) and say "Those games were good"
They weren't good.... they always had problems. Were they more fun than the current games? Yes, no doubt....
But each one had a problem, a perfect fifa never existed.
before you disagree, look at the way EA makes fifa games, every year its just a patch in a way....
every year it's just 3-5 "new features" and 90% of the game is copy and pasted
so let's do some calculations here
Lets say for example fifa 20 has "x" amount of features, lets make x = 100 (for this example) and every year we add the 3/5 "new features" that EA add every year
FIFA 20 = 100
FIFA 21 = 103/5
FIFA 22 = 106/10
FIFA 23 = 109/15
FIFA 24 = 112/20
FIFA 25 = 115/25
FIFA 26 = 118/30
FIFA 27 = 121/35 (We're 7 years deep and the game has 21 - 35 new features that don't exist right now)
FIFA 28 = 124/40
FIFA 29 = 127/45
FIFA 30 = 130/50 (We're 10 years ahead and fifa has 30 - 50 new features that don't exist right now)
im going to stop there.... but you see what i mean?
The game progress' slowly, what i haven't taken into account here is that features also get removed.
Also with the power of next gen it might boost performence but we're yet to see.
