I hate the analogue stick with football games, it's too easy to do things you didn't intend to do with it.
I like them in principle, but most games (I haven't played one in a while...) only seem to offer the illusion of 360 control.
(actual matches here, not management).
I used to play SWOS at my mates when I was younger and it was fun then, but I've never understood just why so many people fall over themselves about it. Plays like utter shit now as well (as I suppose you'd expect).
but it's still the most fun, playable football game out there, and it gets why so many people love football.
With PES3 (which I did like, don't get me wrong), shooting let it down - you'd hit the ball and try to direct it where you wanted, but whether it went top corner or bottom corner, or within the goalie's reach, it never felt like it was you doing it, compared to SWOS.
but I just remember SWOS as being run to the edge of the box, shoot, press a direction for after touch, and repeat. Didn't seem much skill in it.
You could certainly place it where ever you wanted it to go. Maybe you were just bad at it? ;)
Could probably still whip most people at it though.
to remind myself. It was the first game I got when I bought a PS3. Ah, the memories.
As it was extremely fun, extremely playable and wasn't the simulation fest the later versions of PES and FIFA became.
was only playable with those clicky Amiga joysticks though. Analogue style PC joysticks just didn't cut it.
therefore you need a binary mechanical control input to compensate for your lack of skill, this angers you and you post about it every other day.
