Associatedcontent: Funny, Strange and Frustrating Game Glitches.. Video game glitches are part of the general experience. We all find ourselves happily playing a game when something strange and unexpected happens.
The Halo glitches aren't bad, I'm sure you can find worse.
Yeah, Master chief with the Halo 3 logo behind him just calls for flame bait. If any picture should be in place of it should be a MW2 picture. Every game has its glitches but Halo isn't infamous for them. Most of the glitches in the article don't even work anymore as the developers who cared brought out patches.
Halo 2 was a lot more glitchy than 3. People always grabbed the freaking sniper and bounced to the top of a building where they were almost impossible to get, since they already had the sniper and were 20 stories up :P
Agreed, I played Halo 2 fairly regularly throughout its run on XBL and the button glitches (BxR, BxB, RRX, etc), super jumps, and network tampering (standbying, host-booting) were far worse from a player's standpoint than anything in Halo 3. And for the record, Butterflying was a Halo 2 glitch, not Halo 3. It is not deserving of a "worst glitch" list as it didn't affect public multiplayer games. It was really fun to use when exploring maps in custom games though. None of the Halo 3 glitches are even relevant at all. Jtag auto aim cheats and network tampering are really the only glitches in Halo 3.
Pfft worst glitches ever? And what about all those budget games ? How the worst, buggiest game ever Big Rigs is not on there is beyond me.
You guys know nothing about glitches... the worst glitching game is Gunz Online... its a bit hard to explain what happened but read it if your interested. The game was so glitchy that you actually thought the glitches were part of the game. After level 15 (about 2 weeks of work) unless you glitched it was impossible to kill anyone. So many people were glitching in that game that after a month or 2 the developers started supporting the glitch fighting techniques. Glitch fighting: http://www.youtube.com/watc... None of the moves in the video were part of the game they are all glitches caused by pressing buttons to fast. The game without anyone using glitches: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
@Guntrol My friends and I played around with that game a few years ago. It was ridiculous what you had to do to be competitive.
lmao I'm not even sure why Halo 3 was even listed. The "glitches" they listed are more like exploits that require work and knowledge of how to activate it. Last time I check glitches are developer-made problems like for example out of no where walking on no ground or running and suddenly jumping 300 ft. Not things where you need to tamper with a connection and press a command of buttons and hope it works. Halo is just bait so people will give a damn about this article. Every Halo 3 player knows there has not been a single "glitch" in Halo 3 since it's release. FFS they even called the "glitches" for Halo 3 fun. Fun? How can something fun be "worst glitches ever"? list fails. Do they even know what a glitch is? Apparently not since Gears of War 2 didn't make the list.
Try playing any Battlefield... 2142 was particularly bad, with choppers falling through decks, constant server issues, constant crash to desktop issues, wall hacks, lag, poor knife hit detection. While they have fixed a lot of these issues in recent games, BC2's lag is worse than ever, and the hit detection is so unbelievably bad, especially with the knife, that I can no longer muster up the courage to play the game. Considering I've reached top rank in every battlefield except BF2, the fact that I was so frustrated by the game that I gave up at level 20 (put of 45) should say something.
Why is Halo 3 in the article picture. Perhaps it's just me, but I thought it was a really well made game. I experience any glitches.
No Forza 3? The game have tons of it, even some scary: http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://www.youtube.com/watc... And Flashpoint Dragon Rising.
Far Cry 2 had the worst glitch, it would corrupt your save game and you'd have to start again. The most annoying thing is that the reason it corrupted is because of things you may or may not do at the start of the game, which then cause your game to corrupt when you reach about 3 quarters of the way through which makes saving in multiple slots useless too, forcing you to start again....
The title says "5 Video Games With the WORST Glitches Ever", but the writer calls Halo 3's glitches "fun". The writer then says "These grenades are more powerful than others and will destroy virtually everyone on the map. This cheat can only be done on Valhalla." So wait, now this glitch is a cheat? :S
Halo is in the article picture simply because its a Xbox exclusive.. LOL...
I can't believe N4G actually has Xbox fans now. Sweet, I'm not alone.
yeah we are here you just have to find us sencible xbox fans not the trolls
I thought when they listed MW2, i thought I was going to have to read 65,744,765 glitches.
What? No Gears of War 2? That game was riddled with glitches. Edit: For the disagreers: http://www.youtube.com/watc... Granted, the last time I played Gears they had fixed most of those. I still disregard that game because of poor development though.
My personal favorite was the ability for a team of three to join into a Wingman game. Completely unfair.
i never seen that glitch before and i had the game since day one lol.
Really? Count yourself lucky then =) Me and my buddy ran into that all the time for the first month or so. Also, Im curious about the disagree's on my comment? Because it was definitely a glitch people used.
naw sorry but halo's glitches are minimal and hardly affect the game itself. worst offenders for me personally: gears of war 2 and modern warfare 2. both are sequels that are worse than the original and they both didn't have an online beta.
Agree I have never experienced glitches in any Halo game they are some of the most polished games I have ever played. As For Gears 2 I honestly haven't experienced any glitches on that one either. Same with Assassins Creed never experienced any. One of the games that has horrible glitches is Fable 2 I loved that game but wow does it have glitches they did fix a lot of them to be fair with a patch. Another one is Mass Effect 1. There are far worst games out there that have horrible glitches than most of these.
the Halo glitches he mentioned aren't that bad at all.. now MW2 has TONs of them.. TONs..
Yeah this article could have been much better.
the first Mass Effect annoyed the hell out of me with glitches, and Fallout 3 crashed so much I put it down for half a year.
what version of fallout? i played the game this week to get more achievement and it as good as ever. x360 version
my PC version, it was buggy until they patched it, but even then it had some crashes, still haven't figured out why it does so randomly.
Fallout 3 is a glitchfest on every platform. They just occur at will. Somebpeople experience nothing, others everything.
A glitch list without the best game this generation- Oblivion? Patches upon patches.
Its probably cause their was a community made patch that fixed virtually all bugs in the game. I think it fixed over 5,600 glitches.
The worst glitches should be glitches that make the game almost completely unplayable. Also, the writer only plays mainstream games, obviously. The only one he got right was MW2. Add Fallout 3 GOTY and some other games and he'll have a list.
this is the best list they could come up with. I guess there was no gliches from last gen then, only this gen. Plus, with the exception of Mw2, those arent bad gliches at all and alot people probably never even notice them.
Hmm, can't say I ran into any RE5 glitches. LBP also has quite a few glitches. IE the 100 plain glitch. That's probably the best glitch ever in a game. There are even levels showing how to do certain glitches.
Listing Halo 3 is like kicking Bungie in the balls. We all know that Bungie works OBSESSIVELY to make sure that when they ship a game, there are NO game breaking glitches, or anything even remotely related to an annoying glitch in the game. Article FAIL.
Flamebait article. All it does is mention the most minuscule glitches in Halo 3. Why not actual problems like the BXR, BXB, quad shot or superbounce from Halo 2?
"In this military style third person shooter, gamers fight one another online using a variety of real-life military weapons" I actually didn't know MW2 was a third person shooter
well, it can be, but only online, splitscreeen, or lan.
i dunno why you got a disagree, 3rd person team tac and 3rd person cagematch(R.I.P) beg to differ.
Bad, really bad article.
I'm really surprised that Mercs 2 wasn't mentained, hands down that is the glitchest game I've ever experienced. Falling through the world, people/cars/helicopters disappearing right in front of you, invisible and invinsible A.I...the list goes on.
No Far Cry 2? I came across 2 show stoppers in one playthrough, now that's what I call bad. Skate was also glitchy as hell, but it was funny watching your skater being mangled and thrown around the screen as the physics engine went mad. I remember the multiplayer in Skate 2 was a complete mess as well because of people glitching in hall of meat. I'd put vanilla oblivion on that list as well, mainly for the AI disappearing or doing weird things just when you needed them to do as instructed.
The best ever glitch in the Halo franchise was the superbounce. - Halo 2
When I headshotted the superbouncer with my Sniper Rifle! Other than that the Superbounce was annoying as hell.
Hahah, i'd never use it in competetive gameplay. It'd be just one of those private party things.
glitches of this gen =/= glitches of all time.
I hate "top 5 ever" lists that really span a time frame of 4 years. Really? Of all time? These? ...
lol they could at least have put in big rigs: over the road racing http://www.youtube.com/watc... http://uk.gamespot.com/pc/d...
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within had a glitch. If you go back or forward in time just ONE more time than you're supposed to...you can't face the final boss. Yeah. It sucked. :( Amazing game though.
Bungie did a great job with glitches on Halo 3. If I have a problem with the game its 99% of the time caused by XBL and lag/host. For a game that has well beyond 1 Billion games played, it has shown to have been well tested. I could see Halo 2 being on that list with the Super Bouncing and lack of weapon testing as the n00b Combo slipped by.
I'm glad Red Dead was on that list, I can't believe it got such good review scores when other games have been bashed for not even having half the glitches that game has! And MW2 multiplayer is the lggiest glitch fest I've ever seen!
Notice how all the games listed are high-profile ones? Bugs in these games are only exposed because people actively go looking for them. I've played all 5 of those games and only experienced bugs in Red Dead.
In Assassin's Creed, the falling into white endless abyss thing happened to me in AC II lol. I jumped of a building hoping to hit the ground and continue running... The ground all of a sudden went blank and fell under the whole game =.= and there was water under. I look up and find people walking and I can see buildings from its buttom. And of course I was swimming under the game like an idiot and couldnt go back up so I had to restart game. Kinda ruined the progress a little but I lived with that lol. there is another funny glitch in GTA IV. I don't remember exactly the location but when you reverse your car against some swings in a play ground and if you pulled it off right somehow, you will be flinged into the sky like someone took you and used a sling shot to fling you away.
This gen, I think it is mw2 that has the most glitches online.
Has this guy even played a videogame console besides the 360?
