Game Informer's Seventh Annual Glitchie Awards

by Matt Bertz on Dec 31, 2016 at 08:00 AM

With rising budgets and team sizes, creating video games continues to get more expensive and difficult. Rarely does a game release without a significant day one patch that features critical, last-second changes. But every once and a while we encounter a glitch or bug that puts a smile instead of a scowl on our faces. 

We celebrate these hilarious, immersion shattering mistakes each year with The Glitchies. As with every year, it's tough to beat the animation and physics fails from EA Sports' FIFA franchise, which has already been inducted in the hall of fame. FIFA once again put forth an impressive effort, but we found several other great bugs worth sharing as well. Enjoy!
