Series and games

Most EA Sports games are distinguished by year, as most games are released on a yearly basis. However, as EA Sports is the leading purchaser of official licenses, it's not uncommon that in a short span several games of the same sport but with different licenses are released: FIFA 98 was shortly followed by World Cup 98 (as EA has the license for the FIFA World Cup and the European Football Championship, which happens regularly in two-year intervals), and college football and basketball games are released that are based on Madden NFL and NBA Live, respectively. The titles released before 1996 are referred by fans as the classic series.
