All 37 FIFA games ranked ahead of EA Sports rebrand – from FIFA Street to ’98 World Cup

All 37 FIFA games by EA Sports have been ranked ahead of the famous football game franchise coming to an end this year.

Reports last week revealed that FIFA 23 will be the last edition of the long-running series after EA failed to agree a new deal with football’s governing body. After this year’s final version, the game will become its own entity known as EA Sports FC.

The news understandably came as a massive shock to fans across the globe, who have formed a close bond and boast countless memories with the iconic gaming franchise over its 30 year history. But not every FIFA has been received well, as research from Odds-Comparison.com now shows.

The site has accumulated the IMDb ratings from each FIFA, from the vintage 1990s editions to the most recent FIFA 22, in order to unveil the best and worst rated releases. And their findings were quite remarkable.

Fans appeared to have a huge soft spot for the FIFA games released between 2010 and 2013, with FIFA 13 being the most highly-rated in the franchise’s history. Its 8.1 rating was closely followed by its predecessor FIFA 12 and successor FIFA 14, which were tied on 8.

That was down to users loving the graphics as well as the online game modes introduced for the first time. Others called the editions some of the best football games “ever made”.

Meanwhile, the latest versions of the game were actually the least popular. FIFA 21 sat rock bottom with a rating of 4.7, which only marginally improved to 5 for FIFA 22.

The editions, which both show Paris Saint-Germain phenom Kylian Mbappe on the front cover, are routinely criticized for changes in the music style, difficulty in controlling players and a lack of focus on defending.

Other well known editions from the franchise also appeared on the list, with FIFA street coming in at joint-10th and FIFA World Cup 98 smashing it in 4th with a rating of 7.8.
