30 quid or so just once a year to get the latest version with updates is nothing.
It's not just that though is it. Not as sure with NFL but Fifa is hugely different every year. People seem to think it is just updated kits/rosters!
For a while though, it was. By the time they started making an effort with the games each year they'd already gotten themselves a bad reputation with a lot of gamers though, and mud sticks.
For this gen, I'm still grateful to EA for brilliant, unconventional games like Mirror's Edge and Brutal Legend (even though they weren't big commerical successes) & Dead Space, and whilst they're not my cup of tea many people love the Battlefield: Bad Company games, and Mass Effect.
Overall I think they've really made an effort to put out top quality titles in recent years.
