As if the games weren’t polarizing enough, Bleacher Report better is known as B/R Football took to Twitter with a clip comparing the graphics of the two. The footage that compares the way top football male players look like in the game comes days after the official launch of FIFA 20 and weeks after PES 2020.
The battle between these two titles has existed for years now and have had various differences in gameplay game modes and basically the overall content. But this tweet has opened the footy floodgates and stirred the soccer soup just a little bit more.
FIFA 20 vs. PES 2020.
How do the graphics compare? ? pic.twitter.com/dHB9cfV9y6

As the video shows, the faces of the male football icons look entirely different in both games. What convinces is the choice of players whose faces are recognisable by everyone even those who aren’t fans of the game. This includes FC Barcelona’s Antoine Griezmann, Manchester City’s Sergio Agüero, FC Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar, Juventus’ Cristiano Ronaldo, and Liverpool’s Mohamed “Mo” Salah.
With that in mind, many had a lot to say about what graphics they prefer.
Pes look so fake. Beautiful but fake. FIFA is everything folks.

The FIFA die-hard loyalists were also swayed to the PES side.

What intrigues even more as you compare the faces is the fact that PES 2020 features 3D face and body scan.
Every player was scanned into the game in an attempt to capture an eerie likeness down to dimples, tattoos and hairstyles.
So when it came to arguing, it would seem unreasonable for FIFA fans to debate against a game that took the time to do a complete face and body scan of every player. Right?
While FIFA has almost always enjoyed success in sales compared to PES, it might be clear that the lines in the sand remain drawn and factions remain steadfast.
So, what do you think?
