I miss the good old days of NBA Street and NFL Blitz, back before all the big sports video game franchises became obsessed with hyperrealism and little else. Back then, it didn't matter that I knew next to nothing about football or basketball. » 8/01/14 10:40am 8/01/14 10:40am

The open world zombie survival MMO Rust must be one of those games, where shooting someone will not just freak out the victim, but also the shooter himself, thanks to glitches like this above.
