Worst Videogame Bugs of All Time: From Game-Ending Glitches to Data-Destroying Nightmares

"We've all been there. Back to the wall. Knee-deep in the dead. When all of a sudden... the screen freezes. Congratulations, you just wasted six hours of your life. And man, did you get off easy.

Because some bugs do more than freeze your game. They can erase save files, ruin other games, and even damage the hardware they're played on.

They are... The Worst Videogame Bugs of All Time. "

Oh my goodness. I personally experienced that bug ridden Pool of Radiance. It was a good game spoiled by bugs. Thankfully I didn't try to uninstall it before the patch.

This article brings back a lot of (bad) memories.

Wow lol, Imagine encountering the Oblivion: Shivering Isles bug. You'll just suicide after playing for 150 hours and your game stops working.

"After installing the Shivering Isles expansion pack, all would be well until the 150-hour mark. Then it's game over, man! Game over! Six scripts controlling the movement of some city guards slowly ate up resources until no new items could be created or dropped. (Obviously, this could cause a few problems...) Even better, the problem strikes even if you never go anywhere near the new areas. Joy! "

pretty solid article though your site needs some work, some stuff hard to read

Madusha3272d ago

Agreed, article is very nicely written. The whole website has excellent content quality but the design really needs work.

Keep up the good work

That was a damn god article. Funny too.

I especially like the mention of the Ladybugs at the end. Classy stuff :D

I only remember one bug. I still remember it till this day...

I think the game was called Croc and it froze (no memory card either) on the ending cutscene.

I never played it again.

edit: Also, one time my 360 version of Oblivion would take about 3 minutes to load anything. Don't know why it happened.

Stopped my Oblivion addiction though. So, in retrospect, it was actually a good thing.
