11 Immersion Shattering Moments in Gaming
Nick Lalone has put together ten immersion breaking moments in videogames.
Immersion Shattering Moments
Sometimes video games have features that just don’t make any sense because of how easily they can be abused. Immersion is such a precarious feeling that it can be shattered with a simple text-to-speech feature. Sometimes, hilarity ensues at the cost of our own enjoyment. This is the nature of the internet + video games on the internet I suppose.
Video games can also remind us that they contain programming language that can pervert a process that almost always runs correctly – we often call these perversions glitches. Now, glitches can be hilarious, tragic, or downright maddening but the results are almost always worth telling people about.
However, so many of these moments are lost because it can be such a pain in the ass to record all moments of video gaming. In an effort to collect all these immersion shattering moments, I began a tumblr. Was it a good idea? Let’s find out.
Here is a collection of 10 of my favorite glitched, hacked, or trolling videos people sent me over the past couple years. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did! Send me more!
