For me, before FIFA I couldn't tell you the first thing about soccer.
All I knew is that people, who knows how many, ran around on a field and tried to score goals -- but they rarely did such a thing. How boring, or so I thought.
Then I played FIFA World Cup '98 way back in the day, and I got a sort of education on soccer. First, there was a lot more to this game than I once knew. Second, I wanted to know more.
So I watched the World Cup that year, and while yes there isn't much scoring -- I learned the games are fast and for the most part, fun. I am admittedly not a huge soccer fan still, but I do watch games from time to time whereas before the FIFA series I watched none. Thus the FIFA series has, over the years, turned me from a non-soccer fan into a casual soccer fan.
