A game called Grand Theft Auto IV came out a couple of days ago (you can Google it). It took years to make and reportedly cost $100 million. We don't know what ideas came and went during development, but we're betting some of them were pretty retarded.
Ever wonder how that level boss is able to get hundreds of mindless drones to throw themselves at you, just to keep you away from the castle? With recruiting posters that make Uncle Sam look like an indecisive wuss, that's how.
