Why I Love Football Manager

Why I Love Football Manager
Every year at this time I always get excited about a new version of Football Manager. Especially, if I am visiting the website and following the updates about the new version. I always love playing the demo when it is released.

Of course this is what most here call soccer here in the US.

What sets Football Manager apart?


Most of the more popular sports games here in the US, you pick a team and in the actual games you control a player. If you are good, you can turn a terrible player into a great player because you control everything he does.

This is not so in Football Manager as the player is the manager of the team. As the manager you do what a manager does. You can sell a player or buy a player, you control training, tactics, and do pretty much what a real manager does. Doing all this well dealing with relationships with your players, other coaches, board, media, and of course fans.

If you do great job, your players, coaches, and fans will love you. Do not so well and everyone could turn against you. If you sell a popular veteran and start losing matches, your players may turn against you, fans will start calling for your job, and the board will sack you.

Sounds too much like real life, but it is fun.

Why do I like Football Manager?


I found Footall Manager (it was called Championship Manager at that time) in 2001. I have always loved the career mode in other sports video games. I was reading a review of some baseball game that was centered around the player management part of the game over getting good at pressing buttons. In the review, they called Championship Manager the best game in this genre of games.

I found it on a website and ordered it. It was nothing like I have played before. It was a text based game at that time. The moment of the match were showed by text describing what was happening in the match. But despite this I feel in love with the game and it really the only video game I play now.

Football Manager have come a long ways forward now as the matches went from text based to 2D (22 dots running around the screen) to matches being in 3D now. However, you can still play the game in the other modes if you want.

Since most of football leagues around the world have a system of promotion and relegation of teams between divisions, it is possible to take a small team and try to build the team into a powerhouse.

To me this is something I really enjoy doing and I have been playing the demo of Football Manager 2013 and this looks like it will be another year I am buying Football Manager.
