Football’s world governing body FIFA has had its name on one of the best-selling videogames in the world for decades now. But that arrangement has come to an end, with Electronic Arts abandoning the license (opens in new tab), and in the aftermath one thing has become very clear: FIFA is absolutely clueless about videogames. 

Last month came the announcement of a FIFA game in Roblox which, and I swear I’m not making this up, doesn’t have football but does have bowling (opens in new tab). Now comes a press release (opens in new tab) trumpeting four new titles, all of which are “future-focused web 3.0 games”, and all of which look like absolute rubbish.
