Last month I had a bit of a falling out with FIFA; a man can only take so many beatings online at the hands of 13-year-olds who only know about the through-ball button and the shoot button. To cut a long story short, I decided to take PES for another spin and remind myself why I moved on from Pro Evo to FIFA after years of playing Konami’s football series.
With Peter Moore saying in an interview last week that PES “is in FIFA’s rear view mirror”, I thought this would be a great time to talk about my week’s holiday with PES2009, and what FIFA can learn from it.
