I have played FIFA for about 18 years now and is (or used to be) my favourite game franchises of all time.
I sporadicaly played PES in the past but always played FIFA waaaay more than PES.
I played the PES 2019 demo today and I must say, I am everything but dissapointed. It looks like PES does everything that FIFA had failed to do over the last few years. Football in the PES demo seems a lot more realistic than FIFA has been for years. There is no ping pong passing, players respond as they should, defending is way more manual and attacking takes some serious skill. EA better step up their game for FIFA 19 or I am afraid not only me, but lots of other gamers might switch to PES this year. If you don’t believe me: DOWNLOAD THE DEMO and experience it for yourself.
