FIFA 12 or Football Manager 2012: Which Is Better?

Like most soccer fans, I have enjoyed playing the FIFA game franchise for the past several years. The game has made many improvements over the years in hopes to bring fans a real life game experience. There has been much debate on this site about which game is better, FIFA 12 or its main rival, PES 12. There are countless gamers who think each of these games is better than the other.  But I think another game should be added to this discussion and that is the long running Football Manager series.

This article is not meant as a review of Football Manager as I have never played any of the FM games; instead, this is a request for help. I read many of the reviews on Football Manager 2012 and the majority appears positive. They all hail Football Manager 2012 as one of the best football games on the market. Numerous of the reviews point to the extreme depth and detail of the gameplay features.

Rather than rely on anonymous reviews, I am turning to the readers of EPL Talk. Those that have played FM, sell me on it. What are the main differences between FM and FIFA? Which game do you think is better?  Should I include Football Manager 2012  in my gaming arsenal?
