Thought this a good watch from older NGamer forumite PhoenixAsh, especially since I'm not particularly interested in the sport (don't mind watching a game, though, but I don't follow it closely). Since there hasn't been much activity in the retro section lately I thought this would make a good topic.

Still can't believe I had forgotten about the number 1 entry, myself, wouldn't mind seeing it reappear on Wii U Virtual Console one day but I guess there's the issue of rights...

I really would like another Mario football game for wii U, also me and my brothers used to play Nintendo world cup all the time with the top tactic being see how many players we could injure & then we'd laugh so much as they wouldn't get back up off the ground for the rest of the match.

 Laughing 

Here's all the super shots: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qDWI5FOneLs  (particularly like the one at 1:10.)

Neat. One question: that Beckham game - is it him in all regions? I only ask as, looking at the sprite, it may as well be Russell Howard.

As sound as I think PhoenixAsh is and as objective as this statement is, I think that's a minging list. Nintendo Pocket Football Club would be as far away a game I'd recommend to a non-football fan (or even football fan, truth be told) as I can think of. I don't think Nintendo World Cup is up to much altogether, and I'd say isn't worth spending time or money hunting for. As much as I like Go! Go! Beckham, it's inclusion in a football game list is awfully generous.

I'd agree with the mobile phone and Mario Strikers games, but the genre has so much more to offer on Nintendo consoles alone, such as ISS 64, Red Card Soccer 20-02, SEGA Soccer Slam, FIFA Street 2, and especially the FIFA games on Wii (2010 onwards).

Russell Howard being a much bigger draw than Beckham in many of those lucrative foreign markets.

Interesting, I'd forgotten how many games in the genre there were. I'm looking to play games in genres I don't play so often -- the last game I properly played was PES 2008 on Wii -- so I'll be looking into some of these. Mario Strikers Charged got a Nintendo Selects rerelease didn't it? Is it much cop now the online's dead?

My most infuriating Wii game is either Sin & Punishment 2 or Mario Strikers Charged. The single player campaign ramps up the difficulty so much by the final tournament that it's a struggle to hang on, let alone score.

~~~

I would have liked Inazuma Eleven to be on the list - particularly if non-sport genre games are allowed - as it's a lovely bit of RPG fun.
