Confession: I picked up FIFA 17 (after almost a decade of ignoring the series) because it had a cute guy on a bright, yellow cover and my Playstation was all “Look at this new thing!!!”
It turned out to be a great buy. I loved The Journey, it was a fun way to learn the ropes and it had a surprisingly pleasant (but not deep) story with a black male protagonist.
Okay, so Confession #2: It was actually kind of shocking to see Alex as the lead for an uplifting story in a AAA videogame, so my pleasant feelings towards it and my general surprise made my reintroduction to the way complicated FIFA such a delight that, yeah, I could totally see myself buying what is, essentially, FIFA 17+ (once the price dips down a bit).
Also, very excited to see the playlist for this year because, dang, I love their music choices.
