GodisaGeek: "It has always been a forgone conclusion that every year, we can expect another instalment of sports titles like FIFA, Madden et al. and never bat an eyelid. It’s an expectation that has been in place for two decades. These games can’t really be described as sequels; they are merely roster updates with the odd new feature or tweak. Fans of these games know this, and judging by FIFA’s regular Top 10 spot in the sales charts, they are perfectly happy.
So what happens when non-sports games adopt a yearly release strategy?"
