The 10 Most Ridiculously Hilarious Gaming Glitches

As long as video games exist, there will always be glitches. Really, it’s true. Whether it’s the original Super Mario Bros. or Madden NFL 16, there’s always some bug, some erroneous bit of code that leads to graphical, sound, or gameplay glitches. Some are amusing and temporary while others can be corrupting and game-breaking if you’re not careful, able to erase your save data in the blink of an eye.

That’s why it’s generally recommended that you avoid glitches, because by their very nature they’re accidents, mistakes, and errors that prevent you from enjoying a smooth gaming experience. However, that’s no fun. After all, if dedicated gamers didn’t purposely seek out glitches, we wouldn’t get to see other sides of our favourite games, even if we weren’t ever supposed to see those sides to begin with. Sometimes it doesn’t even take dedication. Sometimes you’re just enjoying a brand new title and you stumble upon a glitch.

With as many video game genres that exist, glitches almost have genres themselves. Some are totally creepy and scary, others are sexual in nature, and some are just plain hilarious. It’s the latter that we’ll focus on. We’ve found 10 ridiculous and very funny game glitches for you to enjoy.

10 Riding a Jet Ski… Minus the Jet Ski in Resident Evil 4

Resident Evil 4, the sixth game in the Resident Evil series, has you playing as Leon Kennedy as you venture through Europe to save the president’s helpless daughter. This classic had minor glitches, but it’s the Ditman glitch that it’s most known for. If you have the Striker gun, start to shoot it, and then quickly toggle your inventory, you trigger this glitch, which lets you move at hyper speed (okay, so it’s 1.5 times faster than usual). When exploited, you can enjoy such side-splitting results as Leon riding away on an invisible jet ski while he leaves the real watercraft behind. Oh yes, and the aforementioned president’s daughter who you’re rescuing in a timed mission to get out of an exploding building? Too bad for her.

4 Spinning Heads in Fallout: New Vegas

In the Fallout games, you’ve survived an apocalypse and you’re trying to acclimate to your new life. The 2010 title Fallout: New Vegas does take place in Nevada, as well as wastelands like Arizona and California. Unlike a lot of the games on this list, where you typically have to invest some serious hours to enjoy the fruits of your glitchy labor, you can see a glitch almost as soon as you pop the game into your console. While you’re entering your character’s name, Doc Mitchell starts slowly rotating his heads like he’s in a remake of the Exorcist. The spooky music in the background almost makes this creepy, but it’s kind of cool too. Of course, creators Bethesda have since patched the glitch, so you’ll just have to settle for this video.

1 The Tiny Football Player in Madden NFL 15

Do you remember in the days of GameSharks and cheat codes where you would input a string of numbers and letters to alter your characters, perhaps shrinking or increasing the size of their heads? Hilarity would ensue. Well, perhaps the game developers at EA Sports (yes, them again) were feeling a little nostalgic, because they accidentally turned Christian Kirksey into the world’s smallest football player. The glitch happens during the game's Tennessee Titans Solo Challenge, within Madden Ultimate Team. Somehow, he shrinks down to just a little over a foot tall. He’s still perfectly playable and is just as powerful as he’d be at his normal size. EA laughed off the mistake and even embraced it, releasing a trailer featuring the glitch.
