I fondly recall playing glitched-out Link’s Awakening. Trick was to fall off the first boss’s platform and then immediately jump off the top of the screen while transitioning to the side-scrolling pit view. You could then swim through walls and all sorts of crap. I think they fixed it in a later cartridge run, but man was that fun.

Man. Battletoads was a punishing game. So great, though. One of the earliest games to encourage griefing.

Fun fact: the original GTA came from a glitch where the cops randomly would start shooting the main character. Then they figured out that that version was more fun.


#5

The main character in what game?


#6

The game they were making that eventually became GTA. From Wikipedia, it was called “Race’n’Chase” and nearly cancelled.


#7

Hmmm…windows only?


#8

Ahhh. Back in my QA days we called this ‘work’.

This reminded me a lot of my time in QA as well, in that it’s frustrating, repetitive and almost entirely pointless but thankfully relatively short-lived.
