: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. :?
Glad somebody else has seen this! I don't remember the penalty thing ever happening to me, but it could well be the same game, it was a little glitchy, but still great fun though.

Modern games, especially the sandbox variety tend to be a great source for funny game glitches. Skate 3 has some fantastic ones due to the ragdoll physics :mrgreen:

Had one a couple of years ago playing Assassins Creed on the 360 where the character fell of his horse, fell through the floor and ended up like this.

Without the noise of course. Really wish that I had filmed it now.

Also had one recently where Sonic fell through the floor and ran through some lava. Had to switch the game off as he wouldn't die.

Funniest glitch is when sonic in sonic 2 gets stuck in mid air as super sonic. If you do the debug cheat its a laugh a minute! :lol:

I got flung across the length of the map in Destiny the other day:

Anybody else spend hours on GTA IV's swingset glitch? Funniest thing EVER.

Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

Another sonic 2 glitch that was funny was when you did the debug cheat and took part in the final battle against eggman. Then debugged into something and went back and kept doing it until you were up against several eggman robots and sonic looked like he'd just eaten a phaal with all the fire following him...

I was recently playing Assassin's Creed Liberation, and upon exiting the water my character continued to swim over dry land which was quite funny. Although finding a scripted event wouldn't trigger and I needed to replay the entire game was somewhat less amusing.

A few weeks ago while playing Monster Hunter Tri I wound up with a Lagiacrus (the big sea monster on the cover of the game case) swimming several feet above the shoreline.

My favourite glitch is the roll away from a wall and run back through it Flashback glitch, megadrive only. You could really have fun with that one and now it's the only version of Flashback I'll play, just to mess around.
Scott me up beamie!
