Forums - Gaming Discussion - Recommend me a football (soccer) game.

Back in the PS2 days, I was a huge fan of football games. I loved the WE (PES) franchise for its gameplay, master league mode and editting options. The transition to PS3/XBOX360 made me lose interest in football games, because I never really cared much about realism and physics, so I skipped football simulators after 2008 and never bought any of them. Judging from my taste for football games, which one I should get nowadays?

Football manager if you like tactics, but all the rest are just rubbish.

This.

If you're looking for fun gameplay in a football game, unfortunately the best really was back in the PS2 days. Heck, even the best arcade football games were from back then.

If you insist on getting a new one, FIFA is definitely the better choice, but they've been getting progressively less fun as EA neglects improving game mechanics and single player game modes in favor of the Ultimate Team cashgrab. If you do want something more modern but not necessarily contemporary, the most fun I had with a football game in recent(ish) years was FIFA 15. There's still probably some mods for it to update the rosters and whatnot. Then again, I'm not even sure EA allows you to buy the game individually anymore. I've seen some older FIFA games available only through their subscription service (lol).



Just pick Mario Football Super Charged

There is this game called The Legend of Dragoon, which is not exactly about football, actually it has nothing to do with it, but it's still the best football game ever even so.

Highly recommend it.

I lost thousands of hours with FM (Football Manager), so it's a good choice in my opinion.

Nah, I've heard Submarine Titans is the superior football game, even if it doesn't have anything to do with soccer either. That one's a sure success.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Sensible soccer



Madden 08 for the Nintendo Gamecube



Play on the street with sock`s ball.

But if you want to play on console without the realism I would say perhaps Captain Tsubasa.
