    It's more than stupid, it's so moronic it becomes something almost sublime. [Issue#249, p.66]

    As long as the modders keep doing what they do best, it’s possible to never run out of things for your goat to destroy.

    I can’t bring myself to award Goat Simulator an outstanding score because it’s not an outstanding game, by its own admission. There are many, many things wrong with it. Yet I can’t also deny the fact that it’s enjoyable – it’s funny, it’s a ridiculous ride and it (obviously) doesn’t purport to be anything other than a bit of a laugh.
  4. Does this game deserve a 10/10 because of its ingenuity, or should it be scored a 7/10 because it lacks modes and variation? Is it a 5/10 because it’s not really a game? Or is it a 0/10 because, really, who would pay good money just to run around as a digital goat? In the end, Coffee Stain Studios delivered what it promised, a ridiculous game featuring goats and explosions.

    It might have started off as a joke, but the funny thing about Goat Simulator is that it’s a much better game than it has any right to be.

    Goat Simulator is meant as a joke, and you can tell. It's hilarious, for an hour. When you've seen everything there won't be much to do and the bugs and controls will soon simply annoy instead of delight.

    This is a 10-minute laugh, if that – the kind of thing that's here today, gone tomorrow, but for a brief moment in history is the talk of Shoreditch and Twitter. It's the gaming equivalent of a novelty single and even the developers, to give credit where it's due, recommend you don't buy it. Listen to them.

    Goat Simulator is a satirical and upright stupid game, riddled with tons of (funny) bugs and retaarded-looking rag-dolls.

    It might provide you laughs for a while, but definitely not long. It literally took me about 5 hours to get really bored of the game. And that is getting the feeling that you can no longer 'milk' the fun out of it any more.

    Aside from exploring the surprisingly small map, the player is still able to interact with a small amount of Easter eggs scattered around the map (I'll not spoil of course).

    And as i almost forgot to mention, there are a few achievements and quests in this game, and it can be pretty fun if you try to complete them all.

    Hopefully, the developers will add in more content in the near-future, as otherwise counting on Steam Workshop won't bring much longevity to the game.

    Final Verdict: 8/10 , probably the weirdest game of the year with some form of hilarity.

It's completely crazy - and you know what...it's an amazing amount of fun. The "MMO Simulator" is a brilliant piss-take of MMO's in general - and could even fool you into thinking it's real.

    Its shortcomings are a lack of content. 3 maps is all you get here - and none of them are particularly big. The mechanics also get repetitive and dull rather quickly.

    Get it when it's on sale for a few hours of crazy fun.

It was firstly created as a joke of lowered standards for independent developers that led to a vast specter of terrible quality games, that were mostly simulators. Unfortunately, "Goat Simulator" became victim of it's own joke, as developers greed for money made this game part of the problem. And for becoming such a hit on Steam, it embodies the low point of game development.
    Though on a second thought, I applaud developers from the financial stand point. Not only they satirized the whole platform of modern indie era of **** simulators, but they also proved the satire completely true by becoming a hit and in a process getting tons of money. And all thanks to the standards, that are pretty much non existent. Smart move.
    This game is nothing much than an unpolished, buggy (yes, I know, that's the point...), and worst of all - unoptimized mess of a title. They didn't even try to make this good, intentionally keeping it pathetically bad. No effort. It's like making movie purposely bad, but in the end it becomes just painful, because it feels like an empty simulation - a soulless experience. And Goat Simulator tried something very similar - there's a reason why we laugh at glitches and things that break logic in a game - they are unintentional. However this was one giant glitch on purpose. And that's the heart of a joke... Also some random cultural references... Big deal.
