Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Complete Failures Of All That Is Logic

I haven't seen any of this type of thread here in forever- pan-gaming, non-game-or-genre-specific just-for-fun threads, which I think are good to have- so I think I'm good on that front. The title is pretty self-explanatory: either personal stories, game plots, or game mechanics that completely fail even the most rudimentary tests of suspension of disbelief.
I do mention that, since there exists an assumed minimum level of gamer intelligence, that we can probably skip the 'people turn into coins/disappear when they die', 'walking on top of a medical kit makes everything better instantly', 'I died, but it's okay, I've got two more guys' stuff we all beat into the ground a decade ago. Even the shirts you buy in stores have moved past those dead horses. Consider your audience, please.
I will, of course, supply the seed clip; this is MLB 2k6. Jermaine Dye at bat for the White Sox.
