Videogameszone is showing a collection of videos with some of the most annoying bugs in video games.
post your top 10 1. clipping, and collision of any kind or falling through the ground drives me up the wall 2. bad shadows or lack of important occlusion like in mouths and wheel wells 3. chatacters that can cast shadows on themselves 4. AI that ignores the player, or because of design AI characters that spawn in multiple locations 5. AI cars that don't know how to drive, or that don't have physics so you can even push them out of the way 6. invisible walls 7. crashes, for no reason on games without autosave 8. graphical corruption, bad cameras and 9. logic issues where design is such that stuff that should happen just doesn't, or stuff that makes no sense happens, example: characters that have certain animations but get interrupted and the behavior goes all apeshit. 10. AI that cheats. They are allowed to do stuff that that character isn't.
My top ten 1- When I shoot someone in the head with my last bullet while in V.A.T.S. and it doesn't give any damage at all in Fallout 3. x10

This bug: http://forums.eidosgames.co... The Midgar Serpent bug in Tomb Raider Underworld. I never check a faqs until I finish a game for the first time on my own! Never!!! EVER!!! Until TRU! I caught this bug and it prevents you from continue the game. It doenst lower a bridge that you need to cross. I spent 8 hours across 7 days trying to figure it out a way to advance with no success. I rejected the idea of checkig a FAQ only to find out later that I were experiencing a glicht that prevent me to advance. I was so MAD!!
Lego Harry Potter has a game breaker glitch that keeps you stuck in a room with a dragon and makes the hogwarts areas unplayable. Fail
Some of your list are not bugs but platform or engine limitations or design. Invisible is one for design, A.I. cheats, bad shadows. Bad camera, Car A.I.
1. AI that ignores your AI buddies and goes straight for you. It feels like your allies conspired to cut a side-deal to wax your @$$ while the level was loading. 2. One-hit 100% kills with knives when you have things on like METAL ARMOR. Okay, it's not a bug, but it's dumb as all get-out. I can shoot someone in the head, but I have to do it like twice sometimes, but a knife to the shin is insta-death. Bite me. 3. Not so much falling through a world, but getting stuck somewhere where you look like you're falling, and then you die after so many seconds. You got invisible walls up for where I should be able to go, but not for that part where I shouldn't go? That ain't even a fail, that's like putting the soap on the ground in the showers of a maximum security prison. 4. Games that have vehicle "race times" and the control of the car sucks... like Red Faction: Guerrilla, GTA, or any game that seems to be a 3rd person running around in a city or several small towns. 5. My character has the ability to scale a building or fall from a builting, but for some reason a six-foot chain-link fence is F&#*$%G KRYPTONITE! 6. that every gun you pick-up from dead enemies that just shot at you are fully-reloaded 7. how allies say the same three things on every level when you do something (Rico: "whoa, headshot!" Me: [shoots rico]) 8. when an ememy just stands there. I molest them and put a bullet in their head. Then I go to my room and cry for an hour. 9. bad lip-syncing; it reminds me of kung-fu movies from the, well, any decade when it's dubbed, I guess. 10. how the same three shots that wound you kills your enemy (Gears of War), or how your one hit doesn't do crap, but their single hit takes 1/4 of your energy. I'm still fighting Liquid Ocelot on Big Boss Extreme in MGS4, the monkey bastard. 11. I have an elegant reloading sequence for my gun, but for some reason I cannot open a door without bashing it down. You'd think they get the basics up first, eh? 12. having to eat in games, but not having to poop. If the deve didn't think anyone wanted to do one thing, why would you think I would want to do the other? 13. Batteries in games that last only five minutes, but no ability to loot a store for batteries or at least be able to buy some. 14. That's another thing: almost every character in every game has no bank account. WTF? half of the problem in games would be solvable if you could go to an ATM and pull out some cash instead of robbing people when you need cash. Okay, stopping.
suckerpunch is fixing the chain link fence problem in 2
That's good to know. I don't own the game yet, but I was piossed-off when I couldn't do anything on the demo (yes, piossed)
I have the normal Oblivion and Shivering Isles discs for PS3 and I encountered the vampire glitch where basically you can't complete the quest and are stuck as a vampire. The only way to fix this after playing Shivering Isles is to reinsert the normal Oblivion disc (and in the process lose all my Shivering Isles equipment without the ability to get it back). Got pissed.
Yea pretty much any one of those. However invisible walls arent bugs...
In every game I have ever played, I end up stuck inside of something or falling through the map.
Freezing is by far the worst for me. Causes you to totally shut off your system. The others, albeit annoying, are tolerable to a degree compared to freezing.
I agree. The only thing worse than freezing is lag, but lag isn't really a bug.
I know one that is even worse, how about game breaking bugs that prevent you from finishing the game. The most recent I've encountered is in Lego Harry Potter. Yes I know most people on here won't play it but there is a room that leaves you trapped if you enter it. After that you can't get 100% completion because you can no longer visit any other part of Hogwarts
I dont see how freezes and being stuck in a room no matter what , not the absolute worst . There are gamebreaking bugs , but those two dont even allow you to play
1) CALL OF DUTY MODERN WARFARE 2 2) grainy shadows that do not look like shadows 3) poor frame rates 4) sound glitches 5) LAG AND/OR BAD NETWORK CODING 6) freezes 7) random disconetes 8) people who are able to glitch out of maps 9) poor Ai 10) fail to laod map
You forgot Gears of War 2 before 6 title updates, that should be # 1.
lol thats why i put bad network coding at number 5
I was going to say u just described Gears 2 lol and i still play that game every day.
I think that Fallout 3 is probably the buggiest game that i have ever played as you are guaranteed it will freeze about twice every hour. However, this game is soo good that the good qualities of the game outshine the bad.
iv had fallout 3 on xbox and it has never froze on me. hmm you might be one of the unlucky ones i guess.
he owns the ps3 version i would guess. I played through twice on 360 froze maybe 5 times.
My character lost the ability to walk. Stuck in one spot. And I'm not the only one it affected. Possible failed solutions included transporting somewhere and digging, bringing in another player for a while, etc, etc. The company recommended I "restart the game with a new character." Gee, thanks -- I'd just finished the main plotline and there was no guarantee the problem wouldn't happen again.
Really? That's the only new game that has not given me a single problem.
actually fable 2 froze on me 3 times on the first task as a child.
remember bad company 2 when it came out, i would get kicked to the dashboard after loading a map, that would go one for a good while every now and then.
I hate when you see the eyeballs and mouth of a character, thats some scary stuff.
there pupils are like shiny white.
I've never seen that, sounds quiet cool
while Marston dispatches his "loved ones", the "Bear hunt injured" jack marston model was standing there...almost zombie NPC, just following the characters with his head...it was SO creepy.... other than that i've only seen "gliding" glitches. oh and getting stuck in foliage in BF:BC2...part of the reason why i no longer play it xD
Those exploding ones from Gears 2.
one time in mass effect 1 i was fighting that asari queen and she hit me with this one thing to make me fall down and afeter i fell down my character never got back up again. i didnt want to reset it because i thought he would get up eventually get up, but he didnt and i just died from getting shot in the floor. defence less
Not sure about Fallout 3 But I know for a fact that there are still many GAME BREAKING bugs in TES: Oblivion for the console versions, which is a joke.
for some odd reason i like the glitches in fallout and red dead. Its fun seeing strange shit like flying people and donkey women lol
I experienced a bug in COD4 one time. I was following Captain Price (like you do) into a room. I had stopped to kill some bad guys and he stood at the door waving at me to follow. I eventually complied but he wouldn't stop waving and the game never progressed until I replayed the level. It was funny watching him with his face away from me staring at nothing, waving at nothing, saying "hurry up and get in here" and the whole time I'm standing right behind him.
1. COD: MW2 - shooting at an enemy in the center of your sights while he is running directly at you, and somehow he dodges every single bullet and stabs you. 2. COD: MW2 - network timeouts, disconnects, party unable to join, etc. 3. Invisible objects / bad collision detection 4. Halo 2 - Super Jumping 5. Graphics that seem to appear and disappear as you move. 6. Falling through a map or wall. 7. COD: MW - Being able to sit in rocks while sniping 8. Halo - Getting off the top or outside the map 9. PSU - Playing a mission with a friend and having them see something completely different than you. It's an MMO you should be seeing the same thing, not random hit points on an enemy appearing on the screen. 10. Mentally Challenged AI. They should at least know where the player is and be able to react. I understand element of suprise but they should never just be standing there while I train my target on their heads.
Super jumping was awesome
Oblivion on the PS3, that freaking vampire quest! It won't allow me to give that faggot the ingredients to stop being a vampire! It sucked so hard. Because the first time I bought Oblivion, I freaking hated it. A few years later, I gave it another chance. And freaking LOVEDDDDD it. But then that freaking glitch occurred! I was soooo sad. Moral of the story? PLAY BETHESDA GAMES ON PCs!!!!!!! There are always work around for glitches on PCs. Whether it's noclipping, typing a command to automatically complete a quest, spawn an item. It's only possible on the PC. Also, the shadows in Dead Space (PS3). They are sooooo low resolution. I wouldn't complain about it if the whole game looked like that. But everything else looks sooo pretty. So it's strange having such horrible shadows. Not exactly a glitch, but whatever. And how about every glitch in Mod of campfest 2? Edit: also, every glitch in Nazi Zombies. It definitely ruined the experience. Not gonna lie though, I used the glitches a lot. :P http://www.justin.tv/harryk...
The game that is known as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
