When EA first announced the Xbox exclusive EA Access plan, I was a little excited. Getting access to EA titles for a subscription fee on top of early access to games and discounts on pre-orders sounded like a sweet deal. Well, it's definitely a case of too good to sound true.

It’s a rare occurrence when the best player on the planet in a singular sport is also generally respected as one of the nicest people on the planet. So it is without any surprise that EA Sports have revealed that Lionel Messi will once again grace the front cover of FIFA 15.

Two years in the making, the latest title out of the EA Sports factory is UFC. With the goal of combining excellent gameplay with realistic fighters, the game seeks to break into the sports market and make quite an impact.

When it comes to press conferences, EA usually funnels in plenty of asses into a cramped space to show off sports, social and shooting games. This year, the invite list was smaller, the event was more intimate and Peter Moore may have taken an “Oscar Selfie”. Pity the rest of the show wasn’t as rad.

As you may or may not know I’m a huge football fan. And to our American readers, no I don’t mean the game where you pad yourselves up more than a Kardashian’s butt and then run at each other. I’m talking about the real football, the beautiful game that Liverpool football club epitomised last season in the British Premier League.

SPERTS! I may not know my offsides rule from a leg before wicket, but what I do know is get rich quick schemes. The FIFA World Cup is almost upon us, and there’s money to be made betting on the outcomes of the matches. Unfortunately, I can’t use a trusty tyre-iron to help even my odds this year now that Brazil is hosting the game. But I can rely on the FIFA tie-in to simulate who will win the cup.

A lot of games are getting announced in these weeks leading up to E3 - it's making me worried that the awesome reveal and surprise at the event will be diminished. However, EA will be showing off some new things - any guess as to what?

It’s a World Cup year which means we have a new FIFA World Cup game from EA Sports -  but as I’ve said before it is logical to be a bit wary of these games as they are usually quite poor.

We hope you guys are enjoying this as much as we are. It's been a difficult process, making this list. Mostly, we've just been beating each other with Wiimotes and bowing down as Gavin made random demands. Remember - this top list isn't about sales, metrics or scores; it's about games that shaped the generation, or maybe just impressed us.

We’ve already reviewed one of the two football titles this year with PES 2014 and now it’s FIFA’s turn to go under the microscope to see what EA Sports has to bring us this year.

If there’s one thing that I can attest to, it’s that a lady can P-klap a guy just as hard as any bruiser who eats that muscle-building powder crap for breakfast. MMA has taken off in the last two decades as a popular sport, and its one that has attracted some serious talent from all genders. And in a big first, EA is going to include those female fighters as well in the upcoming UFC game.

EA is excited about Ignite, comparing it to Frostbite. They may be going on and on about Human Intelligence and Living World, but what does it all mean? What it means, is that the innovation is going to come fast and hard for years to come.
