FIFA is probably the best football game of them all. It’s the closest many of us ever come to being a professional football player. The football simulation game has everything it needs to make you feel like you are watching a football match – even the engaging commentary. FIFA is a classic that never goes out of style. Now it’s changing its name, so from 2023, it will be named EA Sports FC. Just because the name is changing, it does not mean that the game is. You can still play online in ranked matches and against your friend list on your favorite console. So what are you waiting for, show your friends who the real FIFA champ is.

Rocket League

It’s kind of funny that one of the most popular football games on the market isn’t entirely about football. Rocket League is a football-arcade video game, where you play football matches but with cars instead of people. It has gained massive popularity since its release in 2015. It is an action-packed game where you are constantly stimulated and entertained by cars flying through the air and the many extra features to spice up the game. There is no doubt Rocket League is a football game. Everything basic is about football, but it is a very different and refreshing take on what a football game can look like. You can play against or together with friends online and show your opponents how football and cars are supposed to be combined.
