    Daneila Fifa10 is much better than pes at all craegoties. I can't wait to try for fifa11,because I know it has beem much improved than pes. Pes has a goalkeeper of shit. FIFA rules since 09,and it's seems it's keep that way. Anyway I am glad to see in each year the fight for the best football game,and I will choose the best game of the year. And this time is still FIFA. No matter it's called FIFA or PES, I just want to play to most realistic game. I don't want an arcade game,I prefer a simulator,and by so far FIFA is the best. At PES the players are like robots. PES has a lot to work to achieve the thing that FIFA has already: realism.
