To Hammer Home a Point

On Sunday I wrote a post titled ‘Why Have FIFA Games Got Worse?‘, the purpose of this article was to try to pinpoint what has caused this decline that I perceive as happening (I’m sure some disagree). After a brief talk with the blogs other resident words guy, he made his feelings on the topic clear, pointing to microtransactions as the downfall of the series.
