Video Game Glitches

Recommended Posts

I'm not entirely sure if this goes under here, but it's worth a try.

 

We all had incidents in video games where a game glitched up on us, half the time having to restart the game and makin gus very mad. This topic is what happened when you where playing a game.

 

For me, Ape Escape glitched up on me once where I was trying to catch a blue pants monkey and I ended up in a wall. My borther helped me out in catching it so I wouldn't have to go back.

 

My brother also owns the PS Medal of Honor and it's all scratched up so every now and then, when we're traveling, there's a big black tunnel indicating we can go no father.

I actually enjoy finding bugs and glitches. One of my favourite games is Spyro: Eternal Night on DS - not because of the gameplay or the like, but because if the sheer amount of glitches in it. I can make enemies freeze, get them stuck it the air, have them stand on me or make them invisible, I can walk through the set boundaries by squeezing Spyro in where the camera can't fit, I can make set pieces move around...it's fun biggrin.gif

I remember I used to have a Shark Tale game at some point, and I got stuck on one particular stealth level, and after freaking out in the map for a bit I somehow glitched through the floor and swam under the ground through the entire map and beat it that way.

Well, Half-Life 1 is a pretty buggy game. I've had multiple times where I'd get stuck between some polygons or something, unable to move at all except for turning around and maybe shooting, and have to go back to my last save (which made me really glad I save crazily obsessively in that game). Also... I always play in fullscreen. And like, when I minimize the game with the Start key, there's a huge chance that when I bring the game back up, it's going to be glitched in a way that I have to completely close the game, like it won't let my cursor leave the middle of the screen, or it'll have stuck itself in windowed mode.

 

And one time, after I'd already killed all the barnacles in a room, I got grabbed by an invisible barnacle that had never even been in that spot. It pulled me up into the ceiling (yes, inside the ceiling, IIRC), and I was just stuck because since there wasn't actually a barnacle there, it couldn't kill me and I couldn't kill it. I think I ended up closing the game when that happened.

 

I feel like the glitchiness is part of the "old game charm", though, that feeling that I really am experiencing the same game other people were playing 14 years ago. There's something really cool about that. Like I have something in common with other Half-Life fans.

One glitch that happened on me was that in Sonic Adventure DX (PC version), while fighting the final boss with Sonic I fell through the floor and lost a life!

 

Other glitches in some other games occured on me as well, but I can't remember which. Some made me go like "What the heck?"

I remember once in Morrowind, I was in Vivec, doing my usual jumping around for agility training. I was in the top tier, when suddenly I fell through the floor! I ended up in the water inside one of the pyramid things. The only way I got out was that I could enter into the sewer from where I was. I had fallen through the floor occasionally in other places while jumping, but never from so far up, and never "inside" a building.

I was playing a portable Kingdom Hearts game one time (I think it was 358/2 Days), and I was in the Wonderland world.

 

The Heartless that look like flying black mages showed up, and they spewed little magic shots that would teleport poor Roxas all over the map.

 

One Heartless actually teleported Roxas beyond the room, into the infinite blackness that surrounds the map. So, Roxas fell through the darkness for a while, and then hit the bottom, which drained all his health, if I remember right? I got a Game Over screen soon after that.

 

I thought it was really interesting, so I wasn't upset at all that it happened. biggrin.gif;

My favourite glitch is when World of Warcraft lags enough that my character can swim through the air, only to be stopped be a solid wall that looks like the aurora borealis. =U

I remember playing Super Mario Sunshine, and I was happily jumping, hopping, and diving, when all of a sudden I came out of a jump into the diving position, went through a window, and fell through the world, it was weird.

 

I also like doing the infinite sword glitch in Ocarina of Time and Majoras Mask, it makes it so the sword is always doing damage, even if its not being swung.

Oh man, SADX has so many fun glitches. I'd play the game for ages trying to recreate every bug I could find online. Such fun. XD

My brother did that once. It was the episode with the sand bird. He also did something where he stood on the death area. He didn't die, he just stood there.

I got stuck in the floor of a level once in Super Mario World, I could move back and forth but it wouldn't let me jump.

 

Minecraft also glitched out on me once and gave me invisible spiders. I also had a world get deleted because 2 creepers exploded and glitched my game so badly I had to start over from scratch.

Sonic '06. 'Nuff said.

 

In Star Fox Assault, i found a glitch that makes you able to go through enemies and teammates, note, that colliding with anything in that game would result in loss of health.

 

Now, if you play StarFox 64 3D, you may notice some graphical flicker on Venom 2 or whatsoever (i think). There is also a bug that makes you go through the walls and eventually explode.

 

Spore. O, great king of the bugs. You can find every kind of bug. Grox being able to trade with you, making a creature with invisible parts, negative money, lack of animations, creatures as vehicles, etc...

 

Star Trek Online has the weird habit of exploding your ship occasionally on login. Yes. Exploding.

 

And there's also Skyrim's physics-ignoring horses and teleporting enemies. There may be more.

 

And don't get me even started on Garry's Mod...

I got a fairly bad glitch while playing mass effect 3 multi player, it was the last level of the match, I hit a massive lag spike and was teleported outside the stage geometry. I couldn't move or shoot and had to quit the match so my team could finish it.

I got a horrible glitch when I was playing Digimon World on my PSOne. I used the teleporter and my digimon became invisible!

Oh, anyone know of the swimming in air glitch in Spyro: Enter The Dragonfly? I sorta figured it out myself, then found it was confirmed on the 'net. Amazing glitch, it is! Allowed me to beat Ripto easily!

My friend and I played around with that glitch, it's quite amusing xd.png

 

I remember when I was playing Skyrim with her, and my horse disappeared for a minute. I began walking, and a minute later, it flew over my head O_o

I had a major glitch with Dragon Age Origin. Wayne the mage, her head disappered, only leaving only the eyes, from a certain point in the game to the end of the game. It freaked me out.

 

This is a random question and has nothing to do with glitches, but I know they made Ape Escape into a series over in Japan, I was wondering if they did a DVD release in America. Does anyone know anything about that? Or do I have to go to Youtube to watch it?

I remember playing a spyro game years ago and there was a swimming in the air glitch. I think it was Spyro Year of the Dragon. It was in the wild west world with the dinos. I tried multiple time to repeat the glitch cause it was probably the most amazing glitch ever but couldn't figure out how to repeat it.
