Pro Evolution Soccer long life fan but Fifa could the game this year.

I've played both demos: Fifa and Pes 2009. I have been highly impressed with Fifa this year and highly not impressed with PES. But I am a loyal kind of guy.Will I be betraying Konami if I switch to Fifa???

There used to be a time when PES was the ultimate football game. I vividly remember those good times: playing my beloved PES with my University friends and beating them all out. I was the PES king and I was loved and respected. I was the winner as PES was at that time.

Time has changed since. Money grabbing bitches are playing the same tricks again and again with little or no improvements as people say name sells. Damn you shiny cute little apple laptops!!! I am not talking about apples' laptops here but my first love: Pro evolution soccer. 2007 series was the time I felt Fifa could be a contender for the ultimate soccer game. 2008 series was warning sign for PES as the fifa once again came knocking on the door. There came that thing- Euro 2008 from Fifa. Boy it delivered fine. With PES 2008 poor showing, Euro 2008 was the bond with firing all cylinders.

Year: 2008, 2009 Series. Both demos appeared on the xbox live market. Fifa came first and it was no suprise, it was good. Very good for my liking. I did not sleep. PES demo came. I downloaded. Not impressed. Though I have to say there is an improvement but not as good as FIFA.

I hate myself. I hate my life. I am no more hero. I am no more a winner.

I've not bought a Fifa game since 98 for the N64. I've bought PES since #1 but this year after Pro Evo 2008 being well, a major let down, I went with Fifa this year and It's bloody awesome.

Go for it, you'll enjoy it more then PES.

I find Fifa 09 plays a lot like the PES games, the freedom of running around is a lot like it is in PES and wasn't it any of the previous Fifa games.

Has Konami done anything for you for sticking with all their games?
I've owned every single one, they've done nothing for me at all and also reduced the quality of their games since PES4 and with PES6 and 2008 totally screwed up online but never fixed it amongst other things and I wouldn't bet against PES2009 being similar.

Meanwhile EA have banged out 3 monster football games in 08, Euro 2008 and Fifa 09. As a result Fifa was a definite and PES, well, I don't really care if I own it or not.

I had International Superstar Soccer Pro on the PS1 lol, but always got both games until Fifa 2000 and then have just gotten PES but the last two PES games have seriously been taking the piss lol.

Konami are lazy and sit on their asses and don't do anything, while each year EA improve Fifa.

This year I decided to opt for Fifa. I today played the PES demo and almost wet myself laughing. Anyone else see the after game video of some new mode which has really bad and all 'japanese' (No offence meant) but it flashes up and says 'good 7237 points lol.


Fifa has PES for the first time in ages for me this year.
*Props to Audacious for the awesome sig!*

I played ISS (PES) since the SNES but I stopped playing it after PES 6. Shame on you Konami.
