Game mechanics..better than anything we’ve had since.

Good passing
Good 2nd man press
Good manual pressure
Good shoot mechanics
Ball didn’t bounce back as much
Way less AI blocks.
Actually outpace players

    Which one was low driven shot = goal? That one was awful. Didn't 19 have the flashback Zlatan who just scored every back post header going too?

    That was 19, 18 was driven shots from every angle, to be fair all of these terrible games just sort merge into one.
    16 and 17 were the best, if they had just remastered those with tweaks to improve gameplay every year instead of adding stupid gimmicks we would be much better off.

    Wait, you mean the most reliable way to score in real life. That’s taught in practice for hours on end?

    Perhaps it is, but unfortanately the game mechanics and impossible other ways to score meant that it was so OP that it was virtually the only way to score on 18. You just ended up with every player passing around for ages until that one chance to do low-driven with no attempts to do anything else.

    Everyone looks back on previous iterations of this game with a massive sense of nostalgia.
    Your brain is lying to you, it has been a long time since we've had a fifa game that was worthy of major nostalgia, and since you're saying it about 18 i can only assume you weren't playing when the game was at it's least bug filled (11-13, and even those had major bugs).

    All I know this skill spammer meta is the worst out of the lot.

    Left stick dribbling is just dead !

    It’s not nostalgia..

    Fifa 18 was better
    Fifa 21 is better than 20
    Fifa 19 is better than 20
    Fifa 18 better than all

    The dribbling etc



    Take a look
    Summed up
    Each year dribbling is worse and the game is slower

    Just face a dude who pulled of three nutmegs, a couple of fake shot stops with the obligated croqueta and scored straight of kickoff. Not one pass. Just dropped the controller and made myself a drink. Some people playing this game are just ridiculous.

    The real meta players skill more than they pass it’s awful to play against. And just looks silly. Oh and the sad thing is it works.

    I want a fun game that resembles football please.

    18 was the start of the decline for me. 16 and 17 were better.

    Anything is better than this..I know it wouldn’t make any difference whatsoever, but this is the last time I buy something like this…This is the first FIFA I bought from release and it has put me off forever…Plus is not healthy for me playing video games every weekend…

    18 gameplay was terrible. Pre patch 18 is a different story as that was the most enjoyable gameplay I have experienced.

    Its quite simple, good passing, good movement, good crossing, good positioning - thats football 95% of the time.

    Skills are nice, and can make a difference...sometimes.
    Pace is effective.... sometimes, but often not to score but to create opportunities.
    Long balls work - very occasionally, and blind punts almost never find a teammate.

    When was the last Fifa that resembled the real game in any meaningful way?

    As far as which is the better game?

    Well Ive played 21 the entire year. Its been decent in places but not most of the time.
    I played 20 much less, and from about November - also had time out for other games in the year.
    I didnt play 19 at all
    I played 18 to death, it was very good...nearly cost me my marriage (hence not playing 19)
    17 wasnt as good as 18 but not a total waste.
    16/15/14 just blurred into one.

    Fifa 18 was the year that it got so bad there was a widely spread petition to "#FixFifa".
    It had the worst iteration of the kick off glitch.
    Weekend league was 40 games
    The input lag bug was in the game for a long time.
    Career mode was borderline unplayable with all the bugs and oversights

    I'm not saying fifa 21 is good but it's just incorrect to say that fifa 18 was so much better when it was plagued by so many issues.

    FIFA 18 pre patch was good. After the first patch was where they introduced AI defending as we know it.
