10. Fifa 12: Break dance like Bender
I don’t understand half the words this YouTuber is saying, but Fifa 12′s impact engine is hard at work here ensuring the realism of professional soccer: players pretending to be seriously injured when they are lightly tapped by an opposing player.
9. Fallout: New Vegas — The Exorcist
Yikes — watching that is like listening to fingernails scrape against a chalkboard. I’ve never seen something so unsettling in a video game. If this happened to me the first time I played New Vegas, I would have formatted my hard drive and microwaved the DVD.
8. Just Cause 2: Flips, falls, and collision fun
Ah, game physics. You’ve provided us years of entertainment. Curiously, the more physics technology evolves, the more bloopers it causes. Throw a slew of complex systems together, and they’re bound to interact in unexpected — and hilarious — ways.
7. Heavy Rain: Shaun! (SPOILERS)
Shaun! Shaun! SHAAAAAUN! Through some amazing glitch, the player in this video managed to get the dialogue stuck in a loop that allowed him to keep shouting “Shaun!” throughout the entire end-game sequence.
6. Grand Theft Auto IV: Twitch, Tumble and Pop
I love how this game’s slow-motion death sequences will actually highlight physics bloopers. GTA4 is filled with invisible collision meshes and objects trying to push through each other, resulting in twitchy animations, slingshot impacts, and porous walls and floors.
