      These games are honestly the blight of the industry

      The whole game is based around microtransactions for both single and multiplayer yet it’s also a full priced game to start.

      It’s trash. More than the usual sports video game, it’s like a casino/grift trash

        Do they have the player gacha game stuff? Maybe that was just Fifa.

        Everything is negotiable except shutting down the servers after 2 years and limboing all your single player campaign content.
