Forza Motorsport is Microsoft's detailed racing simulation game, and if that sounds boring to you, you're not alone. Forza 3 is in fact so boring that it bores itself to sleep. You may see a computer-controlled driver suddenly, and for no reason, pass out at the wheel.
"Maybe driving into the other cars will wake me up."
This is a racing game that goes to extreme lengths for realism, so it's possible this is working as intended. Maybe each driver is programmed with a complicated personal life and this one was up all night arguing with his wife, or a magic amulet swapped his body with his son's and he's in some classroom comically misunderstanding teen slang. We'll never know. This driver, though, is probably just drunk.
Game-changing quantum algorithms calculate the level of ineptitude based on
the AI driver's choice of whiskey and how much bread he had for dinner.
In the fifth Forza installment, the AI seems programmed to freak the fuck out if it ever goes off the track. The moment their tires hit grass, they go from "tiger-eyed driver" to "crying child stuck in malfunctioning bumper boat."
"I've got thi- I DON'T GOT THIS! I DON'T FUCKING GOT THIS!"
Paradoxically, the most entertaining thing about the Forza series isn't playing the games; it's watching the games struggle to play themselves.
Mafia II: Characters Cannot Stop Peeing
Yep. This one is about piss again.
Mafia II is a sandbox game with a Godfather theme, only without the copyright. And like Sleeping Dogs, it tasked a group of talented artists and programmers to allow the player to take a piss. They also got some voice actors involved, because if anyone happens to be nearby when you unleash the pee command, your character becomes very chatty. For instance, if a janitor is cleaning the urinal next to you, you might casually threaten him, because that's what mobsters do when they pee. This game thought a lot about peeing, is the point.
Urinating in the real world generally requires at least two steps: You need to find a modestly concealed spot with a socially acceptable receptacle to receive your piss. It's not as complicated in Mafia II. In this game, characters just let it fly, and they will not stop regardless of what happens to them. Even if they're getting hit in the spine by your baseball bat.
"Hey! Hey! You know I can't stop once I start!"
The poor NPCs are not programmed with the ability to pinch it off, so if you catch someone peeing, you can squat in front of their stream or start a gunfight, and it will all play out with a steady line of urine coming out of them. No matter what happens, they will not stop peeing.
"I'm trapped in a very specific nightmare!"
Right now the industry is teasing us with the possibilities of virtual reality. Well, once they've got the real Matrix set up, guess what: We're just going to use it to do shit like this.
