Developer's nightmare: Cheating to bypass level restrictions
What happens if a gamer uses cheats or glitches to access parts of a level that, according to the developers' plans, should never have been seen?
Right what you get are crazy screenshots, faulty textures, Easter Eggs, abnormal perspectives and much more. Users in our German forum have used speed trainers or the developer mode of Crysis (Warhead) to get access to places that possibly no other user has boldly gone to before. Stone circles, shark attacks, floating beds, strange flotsam, graphics bugs: All that and more has been uncovered by Azrael Gamer and Naiuluj.
For programmers such bug abusing screenshots might be horrible, since actually nobody wants gamers to take a look into the dark corners. Which of the following pictures do you think to be the best? Use the comments to give your opinion. Of course Crysis is not the first or only game where such scenes are possible, so if you have your own screenshots that have not been taken within the usually level limits, feel free to post them.
