  • Opinion: Fifa? Get lost. I'm a PES 2008 man

    Once upon a time we were all Sensible Soccer people. More recently, footballing gamers existed astride a schism that Martin Luther would think twice about (although I imagine he was more of an MMORPG man): EA's Fifa vs Konami's ISS Pro Evolution Soccer.
