Football Manager 2014
Like Paul Scholes, Football Manager continues to trundle on, earning respect throughout the business by doing a tough, workmanlike job. The hundreds of changes this year are mostly small ones that only dedicated series veterans will notice, but they add up to make a difference. FM2014 is a refined, tactically-rich game which gives you countless tools to play with in an infinite sporting sandbox. There's still some things that have to be done until it can be described as "polished" -most notably breaking EA's stranglehold over exclusive club logo and player likeness licensing - but the revamped layouts and excellent help system make this the easiest Football Manager to digest for some time.
