Winning Eleven: Pro Evolution Soccer 2007

PlayStation 2 / Konami / 2006

Some people might say it's a blasphemy to have a football simulation in my top 50 favorite games ever, but I can't help it. I love football and playing football games is an essential part of my gaming - and this one is, still to this day, by far the best one I've played. It struck the perfect balance between the realistic simulation feel and the arcade skill-based gameplay. There was a big variety of game modes, most of which were very interesting, and even the menus were great to just traverse through as they looked pretty and always had some good music going on. The game was also filled with cool unlockables (not something you'd expect to find in this genre) and some of the easter eggs were hilarious. But really, this title absolutely nailed it as a football game.
