Game Informer's Eighth Annual Glitchie Awards

by Matt Bertz on Dec 26, 2017 at 10:00 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 in 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.

2017 had a abundance of hilarious glitches thanks to bug-heavy games like PUBG, Battlefront II, and Assassin's Creed Origins. As with every year, it's tough to beat the animation and physics fails from the EA Sports franchises, and this year Madden brought its A game. We found several other great bugs worth sharing as well. Enjoy!
