Goat Simulator Is The Video Game I’ve Been Waiting For

By: Winona Dimeo-Ediger / February 5, 2014

I haven’t been excited about a video game since I beat my brother at Tony Hawk: Pro Skater that one time in 1999, but my apathetic video game attitude is about to change, thanks  to a brilliant and poetically titled new game: Goat Simulator. Here’s how its creator, game designer Armin Ibrisagic, describes it:

Goat Simulator is similar to a skating game, except instead of being a skater, you’re a goat, and instead of doing tricks, you wreck stuff and make people angry.”

So basically, the game has no point except to put you in the shoes (hooves?) of a goat and let you climb towers, ruin parties, head butt people, and jump on things you’re not supposed to. “You no longer have to fantasize about being a goat,” says Ibrisagic, “your dreams have finally come true.” It’s like he read my damn mind.
