    Was reading the Mount & Blade reddit recently and saw a description of two bugs that gave me a chuckle. One guy had a bug where all the male villagers in his fiefdoms were wearing white wedding dresses. Another guy in that topic was hollering for help because whenever he opened M&B Warband and loaded his game, much to his consternation, his longtime character had turned into a great man-sized italian meatball and no matter what he did he couldn't fix it (users suggested he delete his cache). What are some of your funniest game bugs? Pix 'n' videos welcome.

    I tried to give this game a chance but this was my breakpoint. That scene took 180-degree turn.

    "The first time I shot the rocket launcher, I used the wrong art for the missile," explains Cain, "and instead of a rocket shooting out and exploding, a man appeared in front of me, ran to my target, and blew up into tiny pieces. We laughed so much that I replaced the man with a dog so we had a puppy launcher."

    From my time with Cyberpunk three moments stood out.

    One time I was going to kill a group of gang members in a parking lot, they were grouped up and as I was ready to snipe one when suddenly, from the sky, a garbage truck fell right on them.

    In the mission where you need to help that cop guy you have a part where he drives the car and you two talk. He is all cool and collected talking how tough is to be a cop while the car constantly bumped from the people who were screaming while getting run over by him.

    My favorite was when I was in a apartment in the top of the building. I accidentally pressed a button to call my bike. I started hearing this strange noise that sounded like a pinball machine, then the elevator door leading to the apartment opened up and there was my bike burning in flames slowly going up the stairs towards me.

    When I played Skyrim near release the first big dungeon you go to has a scripted event of a "Giant Wounded Frostbite Spider" dropping from the ceiling and blocking your path. Well when I entered the room it came majestically flying down stiffly and then died on impact.

    God bless Todd.

    In Kingmaker the corpses of my (alive) party would appear laying around on the minimap in one particular map.

    In Witcher 1 Geralt's face would "fall off" like melted cheese.

    They're known memes, but Sports/Wrestling games always have the best bugs. Low quality assurance and shit development cycles produce some great albeit unintentional modern art pieces.

    In NHL 94 or 95 on the Mega Drive you could skate up into the audience when it was paused for penalty/players sent to the booth. I always found that hilarious as hell as a kid. And not sure if bug or intentional, but in Fifa 95 if you got a late penalty you could run from the referee forever and ever if you manage to dodge him. Funny to do on your own, but as a bonus it was a great way to piss if your mate if you played against him :)

    God, this thread is bringing back some old memories. Apologies for the embed spam but I remember of a lot of funny ones from years ago.

    A bug I personally experienced was when, in a major plot progression element, Charles Vane in Assassin's Creed IV Black Flag (voiced by Ralph Ineson) accidentally blows himself up with his own dynamite. Not particularly funny but since it was such an important encounter in the game, and I was enjoying it, I'm sure someone was laughing that my fun was taken away *looks heavenward*

    Two Worlds had its moments, not just for the entertainment factor of the cheesiness of it all.

    There is a point along the main quest where you re-emerge from a dungeon to find that (due to your actions - but no real choice there if you want the quest to progress) the city has been overrun by orc invaders. All NPCs dead, corpses everywhere, and hostile orcs around every corner...

    ...except for one meticulous orc, who had apparently been given an animation intended for a townsperson, and was thus peacefully sweeping the streets amidst all the chaos.

    For some reason in my New Vegas mod setup NPCs heads will randomly do a 360 degree turn while I am in dialogue with them. Like some Exorcist shit. I haven't tried to fix it

    Codex 2014 Make the Codex Great Again! Grab the Codex by the pussy
    In Gothic 2 I was talking to Diego in Khorinis, and accidentally said something to him (having him accompany me somewhere?) so that he went inside, changed clothes and came back outside. I told him I had changed my mind or something, so he went back inside, changed his clothes... and came back out in his underwear.

    Before NewDark came along, there was the possibility in Thief 1 and 2 that doors would misbehave when frobbed, detatch themselves and float away, paying no heed to objects, critters or even scenery!

    Then there's this:

    This looks like the T-1000 recovering from several shotgun blasts.

    Not a bug, but forcing basketballaz to read aloud scripts may as well be torture for them and endless amusement for us.

    In ToEE, the pickpocketing system had a stupid bug where instead of allowing only light non-worn item to be stolen, anything in inventory could be. And so it happens that from time to time the NPC thief would snatch your chainmail right off you.
