What has become of us...
I hoped we will never see the day when we'll consider using the pirated version because it's better than the original but that day arrived in my opinion with fifa 17.
I wish I could refuse buying the game in september but it's part of me, having bought every edition since 2004 I think and is that feeling just before the release and the joy when you play it for the first time plus the hope it's better than last year. Ofcourse, the frustration after a while is imminent.
I bought pes almost every year since and do not have the same feelings.
With Google pushing streaming console, I think after 10-20 years, every game will become a stream service. Which will suck ass because that means you don't have control over your game anymore, heck you wont even have your game forever if devs decide to stop their service. And no mods.
But I think that's what they will do eventually, aka death to modding which would be death to Fifa for me.
