The ball floats through the air like a majestic bird in mid flight, 80,000 fans transfixed on its spinning movement. It falls on the chest of a burly centre forward who takes the pace off with an immaculate first touch, spins and recycles the ball out wide to his overlapping left full back who hits it first time. The thumping thud unleashed creates an unstoppable pile-driver that nearly rips through the net. The crowd erupts in a chorus of boos and cheers. This is football. For years, football games have lay stagnant in a self-induced coma. Konami, the once untouchable football simulation kings have struggled with mediocrity ever since the dawn of the seventh generation of consoles, and if you were lucky enough to enjoy their PS2 golden era, it's extremely hard not to reminisce about the glory days that fans enjoyed for years. Truth be told, the magic of football has been lost with the divide between football purists and casual fans closing and unfortunately blending to form an uneasy hybrid in both series, FIFA and Pro Evolution Soccer. With a mixture of great, good and abysmal offerings from both sides, football games were starting to become tedious for fans. PES 2015 has transformed Konami's fortunes for the future of the series while EA have finally started to sort out the bug-infested mess that was FIFA 15 with some patches. Both games have their flaws but finally, the playing field has been levelled with PES now a serious contender amongst football fans. It might be hard to separate the two games, but that's where this list comes in.
