Loved this series since i played it on SNES <3
and i don't know why but i like Winning Eleven as a main title than Pro Evo Soccer

just one small nitpicking . Pro evo started on playstation and was done by Konami tokyo .

The serie on snes was International superstar soccer , and done by another studio KOnami Osaka , and with a much more arcade feel .

The mix up is usually because at some point Konami tokyo released ISS pro , a simulation take on ISS , also because it was called Winning Eleven 97 in japan, wich would later give birth to the PES/Winning eleven series we know .

If i'm not wrong, Konami once used "Goal Storm" in US / Europe before they used WE / PES.
