The Top 25 Best Video Game Glitches

By June 4, 2014

Ah, the video game glitch. You either love it, hate it, or exploit the hell out of it for your own personal gain- all of which could be said for Wreck It Ralph‘s cutest glitch from “Sugar Rush,” Vanellope Von Schweetz (pictured above).

So I took a look around the interwebs to track down the 25 best glitches I could find.


Over the years, Electronic Arts (EA) has added and subtracted from FIFA in order to give their WORLDWIDE fan base a more realistic football (yeah, yeah, here it’s “soccer”) experience, but it doesn’t stop some hilarious glitches from popping up every now and then.

Skyrim (Bethesda)

Lydia seems to be a total pain in the A to deal with sometimes, but this kid found a hilarious glitch to help you work out your aggression.

Call Of Duty: Ghosts (Activision)

Tactical K-9 unit Riley has been a welcome addition to the franchise and apparently he can fly!

Left 4 Dead (Valve)

I thought I knew every glitch to the “No Mercy” level (including all players bunching up in the right corner in front of the elevator in order to kill the horde without taking damage), but I never came across this one!

Plants Vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (EA)

Either you can’t shoot or everyone goes invisible! YAY! #Sarcasm

Super Mario 64 (Nintendo)


Saints Row The Third (THQ)

Apparently if you try really hard, you can hover!

Duke Nukem Forever (2K Games)

Dance break, anyone?

Heavy Rain (Quantic Dream)

Huge spoilers for the end of the game, but these guys managed to hack the system and…you’ll see.

Star Wars: The Old Republic (EA)

Wonder Woman ain’t the only one with an invisible ride.

Grand Theft Auto V (Rockstar Games)

Your tractor also doubles as a flying device…

Assassin’s Creed (Ubisoft)

Um…any port in a storm, I guess. Dang.

Portal 2 (Valve)

Sorry, pal – you’re not getting in today!

The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time (Nintendo)


Guitar Hero World Tour (Activision)

Ozzy Osborne’s having a rather interesting hair day…

Far Cry 2 (Ubisoft)

Had there been a Gnu-icide hotline, this senseless tragedy could’ve been avoided.

Halo: Reach (Bungie)

You should probably be nicer to Kat, dang it.

Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes (Konami)

That’s some serious ammo you got there, son.

The Sims 3 (EA)

This game’s odd enough, but I’m pretty sure this dude’s house is haunted.

L.A. Noire (Rockstar)

This dude REALLY likes this bridge.

Dead Space 3 (EA)

“Have you seen my arms…and legs…and head?”

Counter-Strike: Source (Valve)

Gives “This is my rifle, this is my gun” a whole new meaning.

NBA 2K13 (2K Sports)

This guy is WAY keyed into the Matrix.

Gears Of War (Epic Games)

Sometimes you just gotta dance to break up the tension.

Mass Effect (Bioware)

Kaiden is well familiar with the chicken dance and is using it to taunt the hell out of Shepard.

And there you have it! Are there any glitches you can think of that didn’t make the list?
