    "I have played EA FIFA for many years and I was anxiously waiting for the latest PS4 FIFA 18 release. I was not disappointed. It is incredibly cool, you can build your own team using the icons of football, like Ronaldo or Messi. The newest feature is "Real player movement technology". This is life like movement by the players, you will think your are on the field! "


Did you know that NBA Live 95, the first of the NBA Live video game series, was considered as "the best basketball sim available" during its release? After its public release, the Next Generation magazine reviewed the game's SNES version, giving it a whopping rating of 5/5. Additionally, despite being released a long time ago, plenty of the game's original features have been incorporated into its subsequent releases. These features include, but are not limited to, the "turbo" button and the well-known "T-meter" for free throw shots, the latter of which has been utilized up until NBA Live 06.

That being said, Sony's PlayStation console used to exclusively play some of the NBA Live releases, as well as other games by Electronic Arts. While the majority of sports games aren't PlayStation exclusives anymore, there is without a doubt that games in this genre have made a significant impact on fans around the world. This is further reinforced by the fact that games like NBA Live, Madden NFL, and FIFA still continue to sell well despite criticisms of being "re-skinned releases". Due to the steady sports fans and gamers across the globe, it comes to no surprise that this game genre continues to be one of the best.

    "These games used to be fun growing up but now as an adult it's sad to realize that the game companies never cared about the sports games they put out. There's nothing but bugs plaguing the offline portion of the game and the online portion of the game is pretty much pay to win."
