I've decided to rewrite this post as I realized I was WAY too verbose before and it's likely that no one was reading it. Besides, it's a simple question, really.
I've decided to try a sports game this year and since FIFA is the only one with a demo, I tried it out. My problem is that the demo drops you into a game with no tutorial or anything. I had a lot of trouble keeping track of who I was in control of and switching to the guy I wanted. I don't know soccer terminology or rules.
$60 is a lot of money, I mainly want to know if FIFA or other sports games have decent tutorials or difficulty settings for those with NO sports knowledge/experience. The demo didn't offer these and if they aren't present in the full game I know I'd never be able to play it.
Suggestions as to whether a non-sports fan could really get into these games? Are they worth the money? Mainly this or NBA 2k14, which is better?
