My favourite glitch ever… World Snooker Championship 2007

Glitches in game code are normally a bad thing. Usually they hamper the experience in some way, worst of all in multiplayer where unscrupulous rogues can use glitches to give themselves an unfair (and BORING) advantage. But occasionally glitches can be pretty cool. They might, for example, give you access to some part of the game world you couldn’t normally reach by enabling you to fly or pass through walls, or they might just make something happen that’s just downright entertaining in its own right. My favourite glitch is one of these – it was just plain bizarre.

So, there I am, playing World Snooker Championship 2007, a decent if not especially exciting game of balls, tables, pockets and very smart waistcoats. I take a shot, mess it up and the view switches to my player taking his seat and waiting for his opponent. Suddenly his head begins to move to one side, but his neck doesn’t move. No, it stretches. And it keeps stretching as his head moves slowly around the front of his body in a circle. The Crucible watches on in stunned silence as, before their very eyes, an ordinary snooker player slowly becomes that monster from Clive Barker’s Nightbreed (see below). Even John Virgo is speechless.

Gradually my player’s head comes full circle and returns to its proper place atop his shoulders. Then he takes a sip of water as if nothing’s happened.
