I've always been more of a fan of FIFA. It's a lot simpler to play and you have a better control of the AI difficulty. You have to work a lot harder to score goals in PES, which is nice if you want a realistic low scoring match, but it gets annoying and bland fast. With FIFA, you can turn down the difficulty to amateur and score 45 amazing looking goals if you want. Or you can turn it up to pro or legendary and get your ass worked.
The only thing I don't like about FIFA is that they made it a lot harder to tackle in the recent games. In FIFA 10 you could easily light somebody up, but in 13 you really have to try to take somebody down. I guess it's nice in that you don't get carded as easily, but sometimes you just want to beat up on Torres or somebody you hate every time they get the ball.
The menu structure seems to get worse with every FIFA release, but the gameplay itself is top-notch.
