Roll eyes (sarcastic) When the Best Game Is the One You Weren’t Meant to Play

Read the article on WIRED.com
Quote:
It’s fast becoming a sport of its own. In games as diverse as Fallout 3 and Mirror’s Edge, players are pushing to find or create unexpected ways to break past the game horizon, and turn the designers’ intentions on their heads.
It’s only a matter of time before someone releases a game where the best version is the one you were never intended to play.
It's not a bug, it's a feature, aye?
Wait, where did we heard that before?

Discuss.

Games nowadays seem to be so large & complicated that I think it's inevitable that some bugs & glitches will remain in the finished product.

I don't mind as long as the bugs don't make the game unplayable or something worse. :P

Anyway, being able to disarm the Megaton bomb as a baby seems quite fun. ;D

The size of the game does make it harder to ensure that there are no bugs in the final release, but I think some of the time it is just bad testing, since nowadays developers can just shrug their shoulders and say they will fix any problems with a patch.

The idea where a bug might enhance the game is silly imho. I don't play games to break them, I play them to have fun. I think the only reason people enjoy finding bugs is because of the 1337 status they may or may not recieve, which is simply pathetic.
