Looks interesting. Given FIFA 14 is looking like a roster update at best, this is probably the one thing that will determine whether I buy the game or not. FIFA's shooting and ball shot physics are two of biggest reasons I prefer it over PES.

Don't forget the licenses and the graphics, that's the reason I'll get FIFA on next-gen and PES this gen.

I have PES 2011 and I picked up PES 2013 on Steam last week for $14.95. IDK, I find it near-impossible to play that series, it's like kicking a balloon around the pitch for 90 minutes, ugh.

Yeah, I always found PES to have a more realistic flow to the games but the players feel like pieces of wood. That's why I couldn't play them this gen, along with the bad graphics and lack of licenses. PES 2014 is looking like it could be the best football game ever though. I hope I'm right.

Nothing about that video makes me think that shooting or ball physics will be more realistic. So, players will be able to get off even cleaner and more accurate shots than previous years? We can already crush the top corner with either foot with pretty much any striker we want. Making it easier doesn't make the game more realistic. Shot accuracy should be lower, if anything. But whatever.

Good point but I never worry about that. It's very easy to globally adjust player ratings; to lower shot accuracy and alternate foot ability, both of which I've done with my game. I'm much more concerned and interested with improvements to the game mechanics and core programming itself -- the things that can't be fixed via editing.

I picked up PES 2013 during the Steam Summer Sale too. Before this I'd never played a PES game and since it was on sale I figured I'd check it out. I played a few games as North London (didn't realize how much the licensing mattered to me till now) and I haven't touched it since then.

The feel of the shooting mechanics and ball physics in FIFA have always been the biggest attraction for me, just so superior IMO to any other soccer game, present or past. To me, that's ground zero as far as what keeps me playing any sports game. I can live with inferior graphics and even clunky animations, but if the basics of the sport itself don't feel right (passing, shooting and throwing the soccer ball, football, puck, etc.) then I lose interest fast.

My one concern with the info above is that EA may make it too easy to get good shots away and on target. I never use the finesse button for example because it feels to me like a cheat, like auto-aim in a FPS or something. Hopefully these additions to FIFA 14 are properly balanced in that regard.

I had some concern about this too, but then I remembered that teammate intelligence was improved and more importantly precision movement, both of these combined should at least in theory make it much more difficult to get off clean shots, hopefully balancing everything out. Plus, pure shot and real ball physics won't necessarily make it easier to score, it may just add more variety. All in all with all of the new features I'm pretty excited to see how it all shakes out.
As for PES, I really tried to like it last year, forcing myself to play game after game in the hopes that I'd grow accustomed to it and learn to like it but in the end it just felt second rate, I hate that floaty ball and from what I've seen it's in 14 as well.

Good point yes, and between the new shot mechanics/physics and the addition of precision movement, FIFA 14 just might be worth the purchase after all. I've kind of written FIFA 14 off the past couple of months, but if implemented correctly those additions would make upgrading worthwhile.

I played PES 2013 for a good 2 months, convinced it was the best soccer game ever, but then I came to realize that it isn't even as good as PES 2012. I don't mind the floaty ball physics, actually I kind of like how difficult it is to keep shots on target, but once you play the game for long enough you realize just how little variety there is from match to match. I'm optimistic about 14, though.
