7 Terrible Video Games You MUST Play
Sometimes, much like my own upbringing, so many things can go wrong that things actually come full circle into working out for the best, and I truly believe this to be the case of Big Rigs: Over The Road Racing, which by all accounts should be the worst driving game OF ALL TIME, yet somehow ends up being a laugh riot from start to finish.
In what feels like it was programmed over the course of a Game Jam session by a person on the comedown of their lives, Big Rigs fails at almost every conceivable level. The A.I for example flat out doesn't work, to the extent, you literally can't lose in some instances. The buildings and towns you race through have no hit detection so you can pass right through them, hell the bridges in this game do the same and let you pass under them entirely making the "Over The Road" part of the title highly ironic! Yet best of all, if you choose to reverse you'll find the dev didn't put a speed limiter meaning you can ratchet up your speed to hundreds of miles an hour, screaming backward into an endless void as of course there are no level boundaries.
Oh and the victory screen IS SPELLED WRONG. You can't make this up.
It's a marvelous mess of a game and should be, by all accounts one of the most hated experiences you can play as this really does represent everything we should despise about game design. And yet, it's just so utterly broken that it becomes a one-of-a-kind experience that is downright hilarious.
And get this, there's a sequel in the works.
