No matter whose point of view it is, Football always stays number 1 and is the most famous sport in the world. No wonder why there are more Football Game releases for Consoles and PCs than any other sport in the world. FIFA series is always the most popular football game.
We have put up this post for listing out the best football games that you can play in 2016. So, let’s get into the list of best soccer games for PC and consoles.
1: FIFA series and Pro Evolution Soccer 2016
Till last year i.e 2015, FIFA series always out performed the Pro Evolution soccer series. However this year, both FIFA 16 and Pro Evolution Soccer 2016 have received mixed reviews in the market. However, no matter what the reviews say, these two franchises release the best football titles every year. As a custom, Electronic Arts releases the next year version of the game in that year itself. So, FIFA 16 was released in September, 2015. Pro Evolution soccer, which is released as the successor for PES 2016 was also released in 2015. These two games were released within a week gap.
You can directly dig into the game if you have already played the older versions of it. However, if you played PES and shifted to FIFA now, there are a lot of contrast in between these two games. Personally, I feel that Pro Evolution soccer is a little tough to play when compared to FIFA 16. However, once you get used to it, it’s just a piece of cake to score goals. However, there are various levels of gameplay like beginner, amateur, Semi-pro, professional, world class and Legendary. You need months of practice to score a goal against the legendary opponents. However, once you reach that legendary level, EA and Konami troll you by releasing a new version of the game. You can continue with the older version but the latest game always tempts you. Eventually, you start playing the new game as well.
3: Football Manager 2016:
Football or Soccer games doesn’t always include the player taking the role of a player and playing the game, it sometimes even includes taking the role of a manager, managing them and winning the team ultimately. Managing a team is way more interesting than you expect. You might think that it’s a daily routine and simulation genre game, but in reality, it isn’t.
Football Manager 2016 is the best football manager game that you can find in the market right now. There are also earlier versions of this game, but as we can feel, latest games are always preferred and generally are the best. You can take the role of Football manager of any FC in 50 countries and can decide who plays and who sits on the bench, deal with the media and solve player problems. You’re in total control of tactics, team-talks, substitutions and pitch-side instructions as you follow the match live with the acclaimed 3D match engine.
4: Rocket League:

So, you drive a car, and control the ball with your car. You can shoot, pass , chip the ball just like in every football game. But, this game is much more interesting than any other mainstream football game. The developers are also working on releasing a “Basketball” version of this game. As of now, this game definitely gives you a new touch . So, we definitely recommend you to try it.
Any team in Rocket League has up to eight players assigned to one of two teams, using rocket-engine equipped vehicles to push a ball into their opponent’s goal and score points over the course of a timed match. The game includes single-player and multiplayer modes which can be played both locally and online. Also, the interesting thing is, you can even play cross-platform games with Console Gamers from your PC. Although this game is released in 2015, the craze and fanbase didn’t dip even a bit. Moreover, it’s been rising ever since it’s release.
