Video Game Tradition

My friends and I play a lot of competitive games. In my opinion nothing says competitive like sports games. We’ve played all of the various EA Sports franchises. One year I even got hold of EA Sports Rugby and EA Sports Cricket from the UK and Australia respectively. It was definitely interesting seeing EA Sports games that don’t normally appear on this side of the world.
