When writing a review about a product or service it is important to remember that there is a small possibility that your opinion on the product or service could influence someone's decision to buy or avoid it. That's why I'm going to be entirely honest with this review of FIFA 19, but remember this is all my opinion and your experience may differ (if you're actually any good at FIFA, which I am most definitely not).
The last version of FIFA I played was FIFA 15, which I also happen to believe was the last version to be released for Xbox 360 (as I was an Xbox boy back then for some reason), and if I remember correctly, I was pretty good at it. On online seasons I won almost all of my games, and even got the point where my Ultimate Team was so good I got bored of not having a challenge. Fast forward 4 years and Ronaldo plays for Juventus, Akinfenwa is nowhere to be seen and low and behold, I've lost my FIFA ability! As of writing this I'm on a 15 losing streak, I've played as Bayern Munich, Juventus, PSG and Barcelona on online seasons and I just cannot win a game.
Now take away the fact that I'm losing, just imagine I'm sitting on the sofa looking at a blank TV, it must look odd to watch someone get so angry over something that doesn't exist, and that's why I think FIFA is bad for your mental health, it is indeed very very fun to play, football is fun afterall, but it is so infuriating when something unexplained happens which results in you conceding a goal or losing. It's just bad for you.
In my humble opinion I'd say give FIFA a miss this year, stick to your Skyrims and GTA Vs, FIFA will more than likely end up in controllers being thrown at walls (according to a friend..).
