A few years back, a lot of people became obsessed with Guitar Hero. You know who you are. And it was fun, something to kill a little time in the afternoon. There was no real point to it though. It’s not like playing Guitar Hero made you a great Guitar player.

Let's be honest. When you're in the middle of a marathon video game session it's tough to focus on anything else. If your team has advanced all the way to the World Cup in FIFA, you don't want to put down the controller to eat, sleep, or bathe. Well, one company has you covered on that last one. More »

The franchise eventually rebounded and I grew to love FIFA again, but I still hold my breath each year until I get my hands on the new one.

I had no need to worry. Yesterday the Wizard (Gary Gramling) and I got to battle each other on an early build of FIFA 13, due out this fall, and the new version was solid.
