Hello gamers in Giant Bomb forums
My thoughts on licensed sports entertainment games in general, they shouldn't release every year so they could have more improvement in terms of gameplay, physics, etc. I've heard some recent games like Fifa 21, NBA 2K21, and Madden NFL 21 has received a lot of complaints from their respective community, due to huge amount of microtransactions and various broken features.
The only differences I noticed from an installment to one another in one of the specific franchises, in general, are having some minor gameplay changes, the roster of licensed contestants, etc.
P.S Kylotonn's WRC series is pretty much the only licensed annual sports entertainment franchise I would enjoy because it's a rallying car simulator.
