I've come across too many to count personally. The most recent one would've been in Mario Kart double Dash when in multiplayer one of my friends managed to literally "undertake" me - by actually driving under my own kart mid-bounce. Funniest of all was that my kart was sat on top of his for a couple of seconds.

Another relatively memorable go-kart related one would have been in Canis Canem Edit (aka - Bully) on the PS2 a year or two back. I was running about New Coventry and popped off the kart to grab a collectible and got back into the kart at the exact same time as one of the Greaser NPCs decided he liked the look of it. This one I managed to snag a picture of the after-effects.

to many glitches to ever mention, although my fav from the past was in WWF on Amiga. My wrestler started leaving a trail of his own image behind him, and when my brother moved his wrestler over the glitch trail it vanished. It was known as "pencil and rubber" in our house hold and used to amuse us greatly as 12year old kids :?

Well I'm not sure it's particularly funny but I was playing the Scot's Prem League in Sensi 2006 and it's completely glitched. Apparently the rules are 12 teams and you play each team twice so that should be 22 matches? So why the hell am I in week 37 and starting to play the same teams for the fourth time?!? Seems like this league is glitched to never end :cry:

That's because us Scots tend to love our footie and the season never actually ends... :D

It certainly feels like it never ends.

I thought in the past the Scottish Premier League, each team played four matches against everyone else?

Yup, that's how the Scottish league works in real life, because there's fewer teams in each division they play each other more times.

In terms of glitches, this always makes me chuckle....

I never got to experience it in person, but the Red Dead Redemption horse lady glitch is hilarious/terrifying

Maybe so. I'm just going off the fact that the game itself states that you play each team twice. If it isn't a glitch then perhaps it's an error of some sort on the league rules.

Didn't one of the FIFA games have a teleporting keeper glitch?

Also remember watching one of DPrinny's vids about a PS2 game called Street Warrior (I think that was what it was called) that had some funny glitched throws :lol:

Me and some friends used to play Soccer '97 on the PS1 a lot (great game BTW) and a couple of times one of the goalkeepers would run off the pitch and just stand right in the corner for a while, then run back to his goal. We used to joke that he was going for a p1ss.

I also seem to remember having a game of pro evo 4 where the referee suddenly started flying above the pitch. Can't find either of these on youtube though, unsurprisingly.

:lol: I remember that.

Also on either that game or another I remember being awarded a penalty kcik only to have the ref give it to my opponent as the other end of the pitch. :?
