What are the best football games on PC in 2022? It can often feel like there are only two or three football games you can dive into (studs raised and all) on PC. FM is the king of football management games. It can’t hold a candle to FIFA’s player-controlled realism and multiplayer modes but, where sports simulation games are concerned, it’s the top dog. Sports Interactive’s long-running franchise will always be our go-to football PC title, but there are a heap of soccer games available on PC, all boasting their own style, gameplay mechanics, and surrealness that deserve your time and attention.
Whether they’re an under-the-radar studio game, an indie title, or a mash-up on different sports, there’s a football game for every fan… unless you’re a Juventus superfan and considering picking up a copy of FIFA.
In order to shine a light on these underappreciated classics we’ve compiled our favourites all in this handy list. So throw on your favourite retro football shirt and drawstring bag these FM alternatives for yourself. For the record, our favourite retro kit is the PCGN-brand Dutch national team jersey from 1976 – all comparisons to Johan Cruyff’s footballing career are welcome.
