Football manager 2012 was released the other day, leaving fans all around the world desperate to play what is essentially the same game as ever but with updated teams leagues and transfer values. Why are football games so addictive that people feel the urge to spend another £40 the next year just to buy an up to date version of what they already have? In the case of games where you can control the players such as Pro Evolution Soccer and FIFA, i can see why people continue to buy them year after year. The enhanced physics of the game and better graphics always make the game seem new whilst only being about scoring more goals than your opponent, but when it comes to football manager i am stumped. I just haven't quite found what it is about football manager that makes it one of the most popular computer games year after year.
