FIFA 20 seems to be doing even less than usual to differentiate the new FIFA from the old.
All they did was slap 20 on the cover and refined the ways they get you to spend money. Just like every other yearly sports title.
Except you forgot the most important thing. Updated rosters and kits and haircuts
Roster settings should just be a free annual download for all editions.
This is why I'm still playing NHL16 , these games only need a quick update every year .
Sports games in general. Roster updates and sometimes the return of modes that were cut from previous years to give the illusion of freshness.
I quit playing Madden this gen but did pickup 2019 on pc on sale. I was happy with it but I checked out 2020 last weekend and with a cursory look it didn't seem much different than 19. I actually understand both camps with just doing a roster update. The people who don't mind paying $60-100 are really getting a lot of entertainment value out of the product, hell last decade it was so important to me I'd have payed 2-300$, just like I did for Sunday Ticket. I lost interest in nfl last few years and as a casual now, a $20 roster update would be about all I'd pay.
I wasn't expecting much of a change. Theres only so much you can change with a football game or any other sports game. The fifa street element of fifa 20 seems interesting tho.
How about actually making the game good and a simulation of how real world football plays and not this end to end basketball shit? Let's start there, eh?
They can always make DLC or expansions. Even if they charge $30 for those expansion it wouldn’t be as bad as it is right now. But they want to make all the money in the world, not just some.
If you watch Angry Joe and his rants about Madden 2019 and 2020, they literally look like the same game, just slightly better graphics.
What you moaning for? It's the yearly renewal to pay them again like most of you do, you have ignored the pleas to stop this trash so get on with it and pay.
True. They moan, but they never do the thing they should be, which is to not buy the fucking thing. Maybe then they'll get the message.
Sports titles = to very minor changes fog full price games
Didn't bother with 19. 20 demo seems very decent.
This year pro evolution is much better than fifa
And 18 and 17 and 16...
So they add a little bit of DLC and that warrants the new title every year?
Pretty much. Diehard soccer fans that play these games will buy it though.
That is why I buy 1 soccer game per generation. Usually in the beginning of the generation. Why would you buy them every year?
It's usually at the beginning of each generation where FIFA games are their worst, except for this generation where I thought FIFA 14 was the best so far.
Well, I see enough leap in something like FIFA if I buy it early each generation. Maybe FIFA 20 is better than FIFA 14 but I'll wait until FIFA 21 on PS5. I will be more than happy with that.
You can tell that they didnt even look at the core game with all their focus is on promoting Volta. PES 2020 is the game to buy this year. It could be ranked as one of the best soccer games ever made.
Because they are the same game.
There hasn't been a single good FIFA game this generation for me. I haven't been able to get into any football game since FIFA 13. FIFA 14 kept me interested for a while but I hated the whole scouting for players to see their stats in career mode. Since then, I haven't enjoyed a single FIFA game. The game is so slow now compared to the old days too I miss the pace of the old days, the quick passing, shooting, fluid movement, these days it's like the players have tank controls. Whenever I bring this up, people say "it's more realistic now", which is a nonense excuse seeing as FIFA today is just as unrealistic now as it was back then. I wish somebody else could come out with a decent football game. Pro Evolution has been terrible for years now. Back when Konami used to challenge EA, both companies were keeping each other on their toes, now that EA is dominating, football games have stagnated. This is the case for pretty much every sport game now.
It’s got 20 on the box and the brought back the indoor footballs that’s been missing from years that was churned into a spin off and is now a bonus mode, like it was in the 90s I can barely tell differences between 18,19,20 if any They make changes for changes sake these days
One of my mates said the gameplay hadn’t changed, but he was very happy because Liverpool had their Champions League winners’ badges on their shirt sleeves. Sums up Fifa fans.
Im going for pes2020 this time. Tried both demos.. liked pes a little more
The player control feels slot better from playing rh demo but other than that it's the same game....they need to start charging about £30 on release and even that's too high but £50 is just ridiculous
I'm sorry you continue to buy yearly sports games and expect to see a difference.
After FIFA 18 and FIFA 19 I decided to switch to PES 2020...I am totally impressed, playing FIFA feels wrong now. I tried the FIFA 20 demo and it felt just like FIFA 19.
Nothing new here.
... no kidding, I've felt the same since almost 10 years ago
Play Rocket League if you want to play actual E-football.
Umm...you’re describing every annual iteration of every sports game ever vs the previous year.
I Can Barely Tell The Difference Between FIFA 20 & FIFA 12
I can barely tell the difference between FIFA 20 and "Soccer" for the NES back in 85.
They all play the same also
Only thing new is Fifa Street which isn't really anything special. Just players in casual clothes and a smaller field.
It will be the same as every year...any changes to gameplay will be patched out within a month when all the complaints come in. This will be the first year I haven't bought fifa and I'm looking forward to spending time playing other games that dont frustrate u with the randomness and scripting that goes on
The thing with sports games is that the yearly difference in gameplay is hard to "see" in videos, you can only "feel" the difference with a controller in hand.
I can. They f****d up penalties and free kicks to the point where it's just downright retarded
Won't matter. Most fans will moan a bit and buy it regardless like every year. Pes is superior but that won't make a difference tbh.
