MORE bad video game physics!

Alex Wilson


To reiterate what I said in my last blog post, bad physics are the best physics. So, here's some more!

A super fun game with purposefully terrible physics is Just Cause 2. In the game you are pretty much the cheesiest action hero ever, and as such can do ridiculous stunts. For instance, you can fall any distance you want, so long as you use a grappling hook to pull yourself into the ground. This makes no sense whatsoever because obviously the grapple would pull you faster into the ground not slow you down.

You can also ride on top of jet planes no problem. It doesn't matter how fast they accelerate, how much wind resistance there is, or how cold it would be on the outside of a plane. There are lots of other physics that make the game fun as well, like getting shot a bunch of times and living, crashing vehicles and being flung ridiculous distances and surviving, and whatever other action hero stunts you can think of.

Here's some of the fun stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPOjUD2kCBM
