There’s no doubting that that the FIFA series has got more and more sophisticated over the years.
Shooting, crossing and passing have all become more realistic, while the game physics are more lifelike with every edition. No wonder, then, that each one feels like a more satisfying gaming experience than the last.
Even the latest editions aren’t without glitches, of course. Some of those glitches can be pretty glaring.
Take this one, for example. One gamer was innocently enjoying a FIFA 15 match between Arsenal and Everton. Suddenly, out of nowhere, Olivier Giroud annihilated Phil Jagielka with a brutal and acrobatic wrestling takedown.
Hilariously, this cheeky gamer then decided to save the replay and dub the footage with WWE commentary. The result is a brilliant bit of trolling at the game designer’s expense. Let’s just hope they can cut out any bodyslams in FIFA 16 before its fast-approaching release date.
Either that, or they should create an official FIFA-WWE crossover. We’d definitely buy that.
An animated Diego Costa performing a choreographed chokeslam on Scott Dann? Christian Benteke pretending to scissor kick Glenn Whelan?
Sounds like fun. Make it happen, FIFA bosses.
