'FIFA 17' (Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 – September 27)
You'd think after 23 years of making FIFA games that they'd start running out of new stuff to add, but this year's game takes a bold step in the shape of a new mode called "The Journey." Much like Spike Lee's questionable "Livin' Da Dream" in NBA 2K16, this brings a big dose of story and drama into the game's usually-dry career mode. Working with Manchester United forward Anthony Martial and Real Madrid’s James Rodriguez, EA Sports has crafted what they claim is an authentic representation of life as a player both on and off the pitch. Whether that includes dating reality TV stars remains to be seen.
