    Aaaah, the Mega Drive FIFA games… there was something pleasing yet ridiculous about the first one I played, Fifa 95… you could deliberately punch people, and it was nigh on impossible to score from inside the box. Every game was a collection of 30 yard screamers and lobbing the keeper from 50 yards whilst standing on the left wing. Marvellous.

    FIFA 96 had a feature where you could choose, if you wished, one player on the field to play as. My brother and I wasted some hours, being opposition goalkeepers in countless matches… most of which, of course, featured goalkeepers scoring and goals from 175 yards. My favourite of the FIFA series is probably 2002 on the PS2 with its bendy aftertouch passing and shooting, allowing obscenely wonderful through passes.
