Amazing video of just how far football games have evolved over 35 years. Even people not into computer games would see the huge difference nowadays to when they first started.



Sensible soccer was the balls but the one that done it for me was this:

Some great game alright. My first game was Manchester United:Europe.


First manager game was Brian Clough's Football Fortunes.

What was the game that the fastest way to get from one end of the field to the other was to slide tackle all the way?

LOL  Obviously realism took a back foot in those days. Slide tackling all the way?!

 Would it have been Italia 90 for the sega mega drive? There's probably about 10 countries in that game that don't exist anymore

Hadn't the patience for sensible soccer, when you try to turn you end up leaving the ball after you.

Sensible soccer was the balls, spent a serious amount of time in my pre teen years playing that on the megadrive. Absolutely loved that game. Pro Evo series was the king on PS1 and PS2 but has been awful for the past 8 years. Fifa is top dog now. Another game I loved on the megadrive was a little known game called Ultimate Soccer..

This is the finest footie game I ever played. Clap Shame about the cover

PES 6 and PES 2008 were respectable follow-ups but the series went 20 years backward with 09, slowly trying to make its way back. PES 3 was a great game too! Thumbs Up



FIFA 98 RTWC was a beautiful game that no FIFA after it matched for sheer arcade joy until 2009. 99 was a very good game also but the absence of an indoor mode was criminal! I have FIFA 96 lying around the house somewhere with Jason McAteer and an unidentified Dutch player from the euro play-off on the cover.


Other honourable mentions, This Is Football 2005. The series wasn't spectacular but the last entry was a good game in its own right.



This was the first game I ever owned for the PS1. I had asked Santy to get me Michael Owens World League Soccer 99 but I ended up with this instead. My initial reaction was Confused followed by Angry but once I got to grips with the game and got over the fact it was a management sim, it was a fantastic game Clap Lost it for a year to a friend of mine who borrowed it and never gave it back! Fired up the PS1 in easter 2 years ago just to play it again, signed Jari Litmanen for Hull City in Division 3 LOL

What about that one for the segamega drive, think it was around 1990. For a throw in, they'd throw the ball backwerds.

The indoor soccer one was great too as it was handy not having the throw ins.
