Gaming and football do go hand in hand as many football freaks enjoy gaming and likewise, many gaming freaks enjoy football! If one loves football but is too lazy or incapable of playing the actual game, the virtual world will always welcome them with open arms.

 

  1. FIFA 15 (Fédération Internationale de Football Association 15)

While many debate if FIFA 16 or 17 was better, FIFA 15 has reached the pinnacle of this list as it was the game which not only delivered in addictive and accurate gameplay, but also presented the concept of the Premier League license to users. It was one of the first FIFA games to transition into better graphics, realistic stadiums, players and overall game. Can it really be called the best FIFA game? Debatable, but no, as the later FIFA series just adds improvements and better comprehensive gameplay.

  1. Sensible World of Soccer

The old yet not timeworn football game, Sensible World of Soccer was introduced to gamers in 1994. This iconic game, as the name suggests, does go down in history with its 8-bit, arcade themed gameplay and once huge fan base. Although it did get overshadowed by the more modern games like FIFA and PES, the game was a massive hit around the 1990’s, while some dedicated fans still host events and tournaments to have fun till s date.

  1. Pro Evolution Soccer 2017

Pro Evolution Soccer, also known as PES, has been up there along with FIFA, but always below them. But having spent years under FIFA’s tail, PES has finally delivered an up-to-par game with Pro Evolution Soccer 2017 that could potentially rival EA’s powerful FIFA games. PES 2017 was a slower, more considered version of the beautiful game, with less emphasis on beating players for pace and more on patient build-up play, but when everything fell into place and you unlocked a defense the sense of satisfaction was glorious. Despite the lack of an official license and imperfect online mode, will PES be able to attract football fans and compete with FIFA in a more competitive basis? Maybe one day.

  1. FIFA 18

FIFA 18 is a football simulation video game in the FIFA series of video games, developed and published by EA (Electronic Arts) and was released worldwide on 29th September 2017 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch. It is the 25th installment in the FIFA series. Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo appears as the cover athlete of the regular edition. EA took the major trend of world football in recent years and built FIFA 18 around it, with significant emphasis on quick breaks and lightning fast counter attacks. Along with all the components of modern day football matches, FIFA 18 strives to provide a better experience to gamers through better graphics, smoother performance, huge range of players and preventing matches from resulting in 0-0 draws.
