What's Wrong with the FIFA Series: A Soccer Coach's Perspective

Community writer Stojan Jovic: It's the same story every time when it comes to FIFA. I grew up playing soccer, from when I started walking until, well, what time is it right now? I coach a high school varsity team, I play in a men's amateur division, and I also ref as well. You could say I'm pretty into it. So why does the FIFA franchise always disappoint me?

I know exactly what you mean. I used to be a die-hard PES fan, but you gotta admit the next-gen pes havnt cut it. FIFA's been improving and since 2008 I feel Fifa was the better game. Looking forward to PES 2011, lets hope Konami bring back the magic of PES 5/6!
My favourite football (not soccer) games:
FIFA 98 Road to the World Cup,
FIFA 2002
FIFA 2009
FIFA 2010 World Cup South Africa

Fifa 11 too , but i agree that's is way too easy for my taste to be my favorite .

but not to the degree of buying the game every year. 2003 was the best for me and 2004-07 were dissapointments but never really got myself into PES! FIFA08 was a huge improvement from 07 and since then, 09(borrow from a friend) and 10 were great!

from the demo, 11 looks better and the controls feel a bit spot-on this time around but the penalty shoot-out was a total mess! WTF were they thinking? and WTH is with the 2-buttons control scheme? for total noob? I don't want to comment on being a goalkeeper because I think it's downright silly but I was left disappointed by the DEMO and lucky me I was never gonna buy it this year anyway!

I wonder if real football coaches feel the same way toward games like Madden!

what do you mean by real? (glares suspiciously)

I'm also a Winning Eleven fan traditionally. Has FIFA actually caught up?

I played hockey, and there are some things about the NHL series that drive me crazy too. I'm not sure any sports game is ever going to be 100% accurate. The more important question is, are the newer installments getting better?
