Bonjourno!

There are many football games that have been released across the age ranging from FIFA, David Beckham Football, Three Lions, Steven Gerrard Football, Italia 90, Kick Off, Super Kick Off World through to Red Card football games. Each of them tries to put you in the fast action packed seat of thrills and spills competition against friends, family and wierdos on the Internet.

They have been the leveller as girls, boys, men, women, athletes and fatards battle against each other to earn bragging rights.

My question is which one is the best and why? Which one still revs your engine? Which one gives you that feeling that your unbeatable?

For me it has to be Sensible World of Soccer 1996/97 season. Hilmar Bjornsson running down the left wing for my mighty Icelandic footballing power KR. Him feeding Marcello up front was a European Cup winning combination.

So simple but so addictive. All previous versions were great as well on the amiga, pc and megadrive. It is in my opinion that this is the greatest football game of it's generation... Maybe, of all time!!

Your thoughts?

The original Sensible Soccer from the early 90's for me. I brought the plug n play Megadrive version at a car boot sale a few years ago for two whole pounds and still fire it up from time to time!

Football manager is fantastic! But I am talking about Button-bashing-craziness! (sorry for not specifying that!)

Striker for the Amiga and the SNES was one my all time favourite football games.

Off the list I voted for PES. Superstar soccer deluxe for the SNES was brilliant!

Went with Fifa overall but hounrable mention to the first ever decent football games, Kick Off & Kick Off 2 (and the manager game it spawned). Also liked Sensible Soccer back in the day.

Now to show my age the first football game I ever owned was
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Match_Day

And I eagerly awaited the release of the follow up
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Match_Day_II

Both played on the 48k Spectrum+ (the decent one with the plastic keys Very Happy)

Has to be SWOS for me without a shadow of a doubt, had everything you'd want in a footie game. Was streets ahead of its competitors like Kick Off and had that wonderful fun playability that was often lacking in many of its current/future rivals.

This was the first footie game I ever played.

This was my most played footie game during my single digit years.

I watched the first 1.52 minutes and couldn't believe that

a. Someone would play as England against Dalllas
b. England hand't scored yet

I used to play that game against my mates on a regular basis. Emile Heskey was the master of the overhead kick and I often would win games 3 or 4 nil with 4 identical overhead goals, much to my mates dismay!

Fond memories of that.

PES 2010 on the wii was awesome.

I must have spent half of my childhood playing Emlyn Hughes' Soccer! It was so different to others out around the same time. Customising the squads and playing on a black pitch with a pink ball just because you could!

I think on this gen of consoles, FIFA 09 has been the best for me. It's the one that made me switch from PES and I just find PES unplayable now. FIFA 12 I've found the most frustrating. It seems to have too many preset things in it, a bit like some of the older FIFA's where there'd be "hotspots" where you'd always score.

ISS on the N64 was a game changer too and it really set the tone for football games to come. Then the first Pro Evo's that were on the PS1 were another step up in gameplay. I seem to remember the PES on PS2 with Pierluigi Collina on the cover being a favourite.

I went with FIFA, purely for the 95 version were you could foul a player and then run away from the ref while he tries to card you

Plus in recent years IMO the FIFA franchise has overtaken the PES series after PES dominated for years
