I take a lot of screens nowadays, mostly because Steam makes it too damn easy to do so. Here's a compilation of the dumbest screenshots I found in my folders this year. Post your own!

Uh...
I think Kingdoms of Amalur forgot something when rendering out my character.
*points to schlong*
Yeah, I'll get right on that...wait, what did you say?
I think I speak for every BL2 gambler when I say "MOVE BITCH! GET OUT THE WAY!"
The Spec Ops: The Line soldiers stumble across my secret lair.
The sensual experience that is homoerotic affection apparently doesn't make these guys aim any better.
I mean, seriously now, X-COM. Go to the firing range.
Oh, that APC door? The one right in front of me? That you marked with a big yellow dot, both on the screen and on my minimap? That's the thing I'm supposed to be heading towards? And if I wasn't clear on that, you're going to flash this notice at me every five seconds? Thanks, Far Cry 3, for making me feel like a fucking idiot.
Oh, yeah, feel free to spend your time on watersports simulations instead of making your UI non-horrible.
Great job making my eyes bleed, Max Payne 3.
...I spoke too soon.

Oh God, it looks like World of Warcraft just threw up on itself.

That last Far Cry 3 screenshot makes me think there should have been a "Best Urination Animation" category versus Sleeping Dogs.

#4 Posted by IAmNotBatman (644 posts) -

What is that last screenshot? Guild Wars 2?

P.S. All character creation tools should have the ability to enable 'headless mode'.

Haha that is really funny. I like the dogs in the mansion of Spec Ops: The Line!

Rorie's secret lair has a similar color scheme to Boogermeister's mansion in Boogerman.
 

 He loves puppies, too!

You wouldn't want me to post me own. I'd destroy this thread with sheer volume alone.

This is still my favourite "wait, whats going on" moment from this year, was just strolling around, looking for bandits, when all of a sudden....

That Far Cry 3 piss is terrifying.

Is that last screen shot real? It looks photoshopped.

#19 Posted by WMWA (1162 posts) -

These are great

That could be painfull to smugle

If you think about it, THAT is the only place she could store it...

"Get away, pervert!"

Everybody in the Two Worlds 2 is commenting about smells which is odd for video games.

@IAmNotBatman: It's WoW, but I'm in a raid. I hadn't set up my raid UI, so it was a lot of weird UI elements, and I was a melee character fighting a huge boss called the Sha of Anger. Basically that's all you see if you're a melee character:

That's amazing also because it looks like Nic Cage eyes.

This is great. They almost looks like Jeff's eyes.

Thanks, Rorie. Just like the last and most important shots in X-com, you are Missed!

My copy of TF2 had the textures wig out something fierce earlier this year during a round of Mann vs. Machine with my friends. The game was still playable, but it visually turned the whole "game as art" argument on its head, to say the least. I also only got around to playing Saints Row The Third this past summer, having been away from my desktop rig while living in Japan for the past year. Suffice it to say that dumb moments aplomb were had.

Goddamnit Rorie, I send you a FB request, and here you go sportin' this socializing in my face, and not add me. :/

Sometimes the Empire AI totally freaks out and clusters units super weird

Focus on the junk. Notice the genital triangle.

@Christoffer: What an odd time to praise the sun. I think he might be totally into it.

#44 Posted by Gamer_152 (14077 posts) -

Yep, those are some dumb screenshots, good stuff. The amazing thing about the World of Warcraft one is that a lot of dedicated players of the game go out of their way to make their UI look not too unlike that.
