What a difference a year makes, eh? PES 2016 has been nominated for the E3 Game Critics Best Sports Game award.
I mean, if you’ve read my preview and several others, you’ll know that PES 2016 is shaping up to be very very good, so it’s not a massive surprise. Still, just being nominated is something the PES team should be extremely proud of.
As you can see below, all the competition comes from EA, with FIFA 16 most likely being the frontrunner alongside PES 2016. Hey, FIFA is actually shaping up to be very good this year too!
Best Sports Game
– FIFA 16 (EA Canada/EA)
– NHL 16 (EA Canada/EA)
– Madden NFL 16 (Tiburon/EA)
– Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 (Konami)
– Rory McIlroy PGA Tour (EA Tiburon/EA)
I reckon PES 2016 has a good chance of winning, but let’s wait and see!
