Re. FM14, my boyfriend has played 2012 and 2013 pretty enthusiastically and is just getting stuck into 2014. (I bought it through Game, who beat the Steam sale price in euro a few days ago.) He says there are some minor tweaks so far, the players look a bit more realistic on the pitch and the ball physics is a bit better. These are preliminary judgements only.
On Football Manager games in general, I would say that they are quite good at capturing the soap opera element of football, as you get attached to players who you watch grow up and are genuinely sad to lose them and perhaps interested in their future careers with other clubs (playing with computer-generated players, not real people). It's fun (in a certain mindset) to struggle for promotion each season or to avoid relegation, but once you grasp the basics it doesn't seem to be a very difficult game unless you play competitive multiplayer. I am moderately interested in football but didn't get very far into 2012, struggling with the same kind of possibility overload that always gets me in Paradox games, but I enjoy watching himself play. I've bought Out of the Park 2014 for me this year, so we'll see if I get further with that.

Settled on XCOM andere Enemy Within. Not regretting it :)
Pretty fun so far, and I decided to make a squad of musicians after the computer came up with a guy named James Brown. Our guns will sing! And mutilate.

Their helicopters might sing perhaps, while rockets fall on rocket falls.

Post sale but I just got two 50% time limited trade-able vouchers for crusader kings II if anyone is interested (I already own it and no one on my Steam list has it on their wishlist).

I found the sale dates to be confusing too. I was waiting until the last day to get "Expeditions: Conquistadors," assuming I had until the 3rd, but I guess the sale ended on the 2nd and the 3rd is strictly encore. Not a big deal (I can wait for it), but I don't remember any previous sales being that way.

If you're still interested I'd be happy to part with it for about 5 bucks... or something else of similar value on steam.
