I've politely put up with FIFA games for 5 whilst being with Lee. Him playing at university was fine as there were other people I could talk to when all the boys crowded around the sofa. When we lived apart I didn't have to see any of it. However, now that I live with two boys I have reached breaking point with the stupid game.
I have several reasons for my dislike:
- Their moods alter after winning or losing. I can feel it in the air, the heavy sadness and frustration of losing a league game or the light happiness of a cheeky win.
- I can't speak to either of them when a game is being played. I love talking so this is particularly hard. I often get a very delayed response or none at all.
- I've subliminally learnt the names of footballers and teams. This isn't on.
- I get told it will be a quick 12 minute game. In reality it is 20 due to all the messing around with formations and other crap.
What I'd really like is FIFA to stop bringing out a game every year. Poor boys are being brainwashed into thinking that this year's game is worth spending £45 on because of the updated teams, the more realistic moves and better manager mode. Do us a favour FIFA, have a year break. Allow me to watch the gloss fade from your game and regain my boyfriend. Then when you release your all new game there can be genuine excitement.
