I am searching which of both motherboards is better for gaming.
The comparison should be based on price/performance. Thanks in advance.

Z97 has more features and can upgrade, does that count as performance?

Well the Z87 Pro has the older, but still feature rich Z87 chipset. That is not necessarily a downgrade.

Also, it has Wireless N built in, and more SATA ports, meaning you can have more hard drives for games etc.

It is also a good overclocker, and has a better VRM cooler, meaning the power delivery will stay cooler during heavy gaming loads.

It has slightly better onboard audio, ALC1150 vs ALC898

The Z97 A has M.2 SSD support, but they still cost a fair bit, and also SATA express, which is not very common yet on SSDs.

Z97 A is future proof, it has the new M.2 port- This is good
Z87 Pro is wifi enabled
..
Also check Z97 Pro with wifi/ac

Please select as best answer, thanks.
