THE goalkeepers from FIFA 23 they seem to have exceptional reflexes, similar to those of Neo, the protagonist of Matrix. In some cases, it is practically impossible to displace them, because they manage to writhe at such speed that they are still able to parry.
Faced with such miracles, gamers could only react by making irony about the state of the game and the death of any pretense of realism and filling social networks with testimonies between heartfelt and amused. The problem manifests itself in particular during penalty kicks, where the behavior of some goalkeepers, apparently those with 100 reflexes, becomes absurd.
For example, user tomfumtarn shared in the FIFA subreddit a clip showing the alien reactivity of the goalkeeper Péter Gulácsi during a penalty. Initially the keeper appears to be throwing himself in the opposite direction of the ball, but with a feline sprint and a Matrix-worthy contortion, he still manages to intercept the ball.
There are many similar clips on Reddit, a sign that this is a common problem, which we don’t even know whether or not to define bugs.
