The constant progression of annual sport titles has another advantage besides the games getting more and more realistic every year. It creates moments where the players go nuts—suddenly, our ordinary game turns itself into Dragon Ball Z or Super Smash TV. We selected below a few of these from the last few years' FIFA…
Last year, a ton of Xbox 360 owners began complaining that they'd been "hacked", and because much of the money stolen ended up being spent on EA's FIFA 12, it was believed the game was somehow responsible.
But when EA Sports producer John Worrall became Kelly Worrall, she says that…
It's not the first time we've seen FIFA 12's misfiring physics engine go bananas, and it probably won't be the last. But for now, this is easily my favourite example of how something so busted can also be something so beautiful.
I'm still a little shocked. I mean, I love my football and I generally love my FIFA, but if you'd told me two months ago that the single best game available at the Vita's launch would be this, a handheld port of a game that's just in time for the end of the European season, I'd have slapped you in the mouth.

So, maybe you have some money leftover during this, the video game monsoon season. If you do, Amazon wants a word with you. The online shopping portal's stuffed their famous Gold Boxes full of reduced-price video games today, with seven titles up for grabs over 24 hours. Portable classic Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney…
Owen was right. I don't think sports games are worth reviewing. But the battle between FIFA and Pro Evo, the biggest annual contest not just in sports but in all of gaming, is too big to ignore.
As of this writing, there are at least seven YouTube videos, all with more than 100,000 views, tracking pratfalls and slapstick glitches found in FIFA 12—the latest entry in the most acclaimed and respected sports video game series of the past three years. All of these come from regular users playing a demo version…
FIFA 12 won't be out until later this month. Perhaps that will be enough time for EA to fix these wonderfully hilarious bugs.
A big criticism of EA Sports' annual games, and one that I for the most part agree with, is that each new version is often too similar to the last.
