I’m obsessed with FIFA footie game and have every copy released over the past 30 years

A FIFA-mad dad has every copy of the popular footie computer game released over three decades.

In total the 37-year-old has 86 versions across different consoles including Xbox, Playstation, and Nintendo 64.

He also has online versions for his iPhone.

Josh’s collection also includes other EA football games including Fifa World Cup from 2002 and 2006 and European Championship versions from Euro 2000 and 2004.

He also has spin-off games such as Fifa Street and Fifa Manager.

Josh revealed his collection after makers EA Sports announced it is cutting ties with Fifa and is set to launch the new footie video game franchise EA Sports FC.

The stay-at-home dad, whose favourite version is original Fifa 94, started collecting aged seven.

And he says he misses quirks including being able to foul the referee.

Josh, of East Grinstead, West Sussex, said: “It’s just the best game and always has been.

“I remember as a kid the graphics were better than anything else, but I do miss the funny parts of the game.

“It is so realistic now, and part of the romance was trying to work out any of the glitches.

“I must have spent hundreds of pounds over the years and I still play the games now. You never get too old.”

The new game franchise will still feature most top teams, leagues, stadiums and players as EA Sports has separate licensing agreements.

However the Fifa-run World Cup will be written out of the content.

Dad-of-two Josh will complete his collection when Fifa 23 is released later this year.

He said: “It won’t be the same without Fifa in the title, but I am sure the game will be just as good. Everyone will still call it Fifa.”
