For years now, FIFA has been the undisputed king of football games.
Sure, Pro Evolution Soccer was hugely popular in times gone by, and more left-field games like This Is Football, and the ridiculous RedCard have given us hours of fun down the years, but FIFA will always be number one.
25 years after the first game was released in 1993, makers EA Sports recently announced that Cristiano Ronaldo is set to star on the cover of the game for the first time on FIFA 18.
Sure, Ronaldo’s won Ballon d’Ors, Champions Leagues and a European championship to name a few, but to be honest, we can’t think of a higher honour than starring on the game’s cover – which means so much to so many football fans around the world.
Celebrate 25 years of the FIFA games franchise by revisiting every single cover from the game’s history. Enjoy!

The first game was released way back in 1993, featuring a shot of David Platt going up against Polish international Piotr Świerczewski.
