Late to the Party: Goat Simulator
Ah, good ol’ Goat Simulator. Goat Simulator can be described as the glitch that turned into a game that turned into an internet sensation. I wasn’t one of the people who hopped on the bandwagon when it was popular so you could say I’m a tad Late to the Party.
So how does the game hold up when the hype isn’t bringing it up? Surprisingly well actually…kind of. I’ll explain why it’s lacking in a bit. If you’re expecting AAA graphics, sound, and gameplay, then you’re not doing it right. What you should expect from the game is intentional chaotic glitching and over-the-top hilarity.
Goat Simulator is of course the game that started the trend of odd “simulator” games. Yes, there were plenty of Simulator titles before it, but Goat Simulator isn’t your typical simulator. Goat Simulator at its roots is an extremely glitchy game full of rag dolls, easter eggs, and mindless fun, and that’s fine. Now we’re getting Rock Simulators, grass simulators, and more that just don’t get the premise of making an odd simulator, unless they’re intentions were different of course.
Goat Simulator is at its core, a game you could play in short bursts for a very long time. Seeing how the game has several pages of mods in the Steam Workshop, the game has a lot of replay value. Like I said though, the game is great when playing in short bursts; If you play the game for too long, the game will drag on and get boring. Goat Simulator is not a perfect game, but the devs did accomplish one thing. They made a ridiculous game that’s fun to come back to, to see what hilarious mods the community has come up with.
If you’re interested in Goat Simulator, you can buy it on Steam, here [x]
