No mat­ter the ad­vance­ments made by con­tem­po­rary foot­ball games, there’ll al­ways be a groundswell of sup­port for PES6 as the genre’s great­est. The cul­mi­na­tion of four un­touch­able years, it felt un­can­nily like the real thing, with stand­out play­ers such as Ronald­inho, Adri­ano and Thierry Henry com­pet­ing just like their flesh-and-mus­cle coun­ter­parts. As for Mas­ter League: never be­fore had a sports game built a sus­tained, deep ca­reer mode around a fic­tional team. The idea was to even­tu­ally up­grade your no-name starter squad. Yet the at­tach­ment to Mi­nanda, Cas­tolo and all-con­quer­ing cen­tre-back Valeny soon ran so deep that ev­ery in­com­ing trans­fer ar­rived un­der an in­escapable black cloud of guilt. So so good.
