As the overall bread winner for EA, the FIFA franchise is the most successful franchise in the history of video games. With such a combination of sequels and spin-offs, there seems to be no end to its dominant reign. Granted, Soccer is the most popular game in the world but there is a reason why EA's franchise stands above any other franchise. That lies within the company's determination to authenticity. Ask any fan and they'll tell you that year after year, FIFA's releases are the ones that capture the truest gameplay and feel of the sport.
