24 Games until Xmas is our special feature to build up to the end of the year, however that is not all.
Each member of staff was asked to provide their top twenty four games of the year; we have taken this list and will reveal a game each day until December 24, at which point we will unveil our number one game of the year.
There are some fantastic titles on the way and when the final game is revealed, that’s where you come in.
Once the number one game has been revealed we will then create a poll with all 24 games and ask you to vote on your own personal game of the year, this poll will run from December 24 until January 2nd, at which point we will announce the ShopToNews readers Game of The Year 2011.
We hope you are enjoying counting down our best 24 games of the year with us and if you have just joined us then make sure you check out the other games in the list.
Here’s the next…
8 games until Xmas – FIFA 12
What would this list be without FIFA 12? It’s the game that continues to sell millions and millions of copies, despite being released at least once (sometimes twice with spin off’s) a year.
We love FIFA, because even though it is revised on a regular basis, every time it brings something new to the table. Take this year for instance, new defending, a new and improved career mode, better animation and improved player control, and that’s just the tip of the FIFA 12 iceberg.
Everything you could possibly want from a football game and more is packed into the FIFA 12 package, whether you are a casual fan or hardcore, you will love everything that this game has to offer. The graphics look so realistic and the career mode is so packed full of features that you could quite easily play all the way through to next season without even giving a second glance to your real-life team. It really is outstanding stuff.
All of the options and menus in the World would be useless if the action on the pitch was average, however there is no such worry here. Every single morsel of passion and frustration has been packed into the virtual arena, meaning that you are just as likely to be pulling your hair out here, on your console, as you are watching your team in real life.
Perhaps, one of the things I love most about FIFA is that no matter which team you support, generally you are represented. So, whether you are top tier or lower divisions, there is some hope that you will be able to lead out your team and take them all the way to the top, although it’s never easy.
As well as a mountain of single player options, FIFA also leads the way online, be it single ranked matches or building your team using virtual playing cards and taking on everyone else’s through Ultimate Team. Whatever way you want to play the beautiful game, FIFA 12 more than has it covered.
FIFA 12 is outstanding and it’s a game that no football fan should be without.
