Dear lord, I don’t often post about sport on Kotaku, but man — this goal. This goal is just ridiculous. I can’t rest, nay won’t rest until FIFA allows me to at least try and score goals like this, although I have no idea how it could possibly be implemented.
Which is sort of the problem with sports games in general. While the best of them sometimes allow players to create those spectacular ‘whoa’ moments, it’s difficult to allow for those moments of genuine creativity. The best things video games can do is imitate them in their wake. Another good example is the Showtime Kick by Anthony Pettis, which was then implemented into EA Sports UFC.
I suppose my point is this: video games absolutely reacts to sport as it happens, it just tends to lag a little behind, and it always seems to lack that spontaneity.
Never mind, it’ll be in FIFA 16.
