10 out of 10; I would goat again

Goat Simulator for PC

Cameron Yarger and Jimmy Nolter

If you are looking for a game with an invigorating storyline that is full of action, Goat Simulator is not for you.  If you want a game that will make you laugh until it hurts, this game is perfect.

History was made, April 1, 2014.  Never has a game quite like this been released, and I don’t know how I gamed without it.  Goat Simulator 2014 is a comical game that pokes fun at… well, what else could it be with a title like that?  The casual gamer might wonder how playing a game as a goat could be any fun at all.  Simply put, you are not just “some goat.”  You start as a goat in a free-roaming type of setting with no boundaries as to what you can do.  Players can walk around as a goat doing boring goat stuff, or they can do awesome things like running and jumping through windows while doing front flips, landing in houses, and destroying them from the inside out.

How does that not sound totally amazing?

Other options include becoming King of the Goats, learning the ability to call other goats to help you, or becoming a demon goat with mystic powers like the ability to move objects with your mind.  The game developers also left in funny bugs that come with complex physics games.  Players must face certain challenges like successfully doing a front flip or jumping 50 meters into the air, giving the game purpose.

I have played approximately six hours of this game, and all six hours I laughed harder than I have in a long time.  The game is insane and makes no sense in any literal way of thinking, but I just can’t stop playing.  It is hilarious to watch a goat run into a gas station, blow up a car by licking it, and get thrown 100 feet into the air only to fly away.

There is no substitute.

The open world map is huge, with tons of little things hidden in the corners of the map.  The game does not give you a single clue as to where to find any of it, so it becomes an adventure to do it all.  With its awesome, hilarious, wacky antics, this game should be played by anyone who just wants to laugh in general.  Enjoy the game for its humor, not its action.

At only $10, and exclusively on PC, Goat Simulator is a pretty cheap date for a brand new game.
