Don't really care for soccer. Might rent it or something. It's gotta be better than GTA4.

Arsenal4Ever3186d ago

It's not soccer - it's football :), and I agree it shouldn't get GOTY cause its a sport game but it was the best one this year.

anh_duong3186d ago

i actually agree with peter on this one. eurogamer top 50 post is very bizarre.

kapedkrusader3186d ago

...you buy it. If you don't like it, save your money and don't rent it.

@ Arsenal4ever- it's not football, it's futbol.

FIFA is for kids, kid games don't hit the top or near. Fifa sales are something because EA marketing, true soccer players play PES since ever.

@jromao

Thats what i used to think, however i picked up FIFA 09 in the sales (first fifa game i have played since 2002) and i've been really impressed by it, Fifa 09 is better by PES 09 by some distance.

Diugu3186d ago

Same here, always prefered PES.. but this year Fifa takes the crown. Fifa09 is simply a lot better than PES09, there is just no comparison.

Its sad though... I used to like PES a lot, hopefully they will improve next year... competition like this is a good thing, games will get better.

PS: It is Futebol. ;D

Too human is better then that sh!t

Mozilla893185d ago

I would definitely expect FIFA 09 in the top 50 games this year. It was a brilliant soccer game and it still has me hooked.

mint royale3185d ago

he has a point.

And it isn't futbol its football.

I like madden too this year. Its the best american soccer game yet.

dylz3185d ago

1. it deppends where you come from if u are from america, australia, new zealand or any other country where soccer isn't the first sport its soccer if u come from any other contry it's futball

2. Pes use to have the best gameplay easily but in 09 I think they really dropped the ball and fifa has taken the crown

I don't believe any sport game should be on a game of the year list - it's just a sports game ffs. Sports games are what you play if you want to play the sport, but can't; not if you're an avid gamer looking for fresh experiences.

It's like asking why an almanac isn't in the top sellers for drama in book stores.

PureGamer3186d ago

funny i play a lot of football and im quite good yet i still play fifa or pes. Seems as if your the kid who never was any good at any sport and just needs to put everyone else down who is.

edhe3185d ago

Nah, gaming press agrees with my pov, :)

I've played the hell out of many football games but there's nothing fresh there. It's like re-releasing DooM for 15 years.. every year just tweaks and different names.

Senden3186d ago

I agree with Peter Moore on this.. how can fifa not get in the top 50? For me, it's my top game at the moment. Not only does it faithfully recreate the beautiful game, it also gives you more offline and online options than any other game i've played. The adidas live season thingie is also a huge implementation and definately has set a completely new standard of what should be expected in a sports game.

Fifa 09 is a brilliant game no matter what genre you want to label it. If a sports movie can win an Oscar then maybe it's time for sports games to get some recognition. Come on gaming sites, stop being so narrow minded.
