Vinny + science = comedy gold. GOLD. ♥

I also did a bridge building assignment in junior high. Allowed building materials were popsicle sticks, drinking straws, and white glue. My particular bridge earned me a solid C+ and the distinction of the bridge that bended the furthest before actually breaking. :D

I feel like I played this game in middle school like 10 years ago.

If Jeff were in this QL would we call the bridge he build Jeff's Bridges?

VinCo: Why would you want to cross a bridge, when you can jump off a ramp?

I was not expecting to be entertained as much as I got from a bridge constructor game.

around the 17m part is the fucking best (so far)

I used to play game named Pontifex quite many years ago. It was really fun and addicting game. Interesting to see how this compares to that game. Also I really want to see what kind of bridges Vinny is going to make...

I played the hell out of Pontifex, and that was 10 years ago! I still have Pontifex 2 on my hard drive. Check out Bridge It which is an improved version of Pontifex (fancier graphics, physics) and is also coming to Steam.

After watching this video I want to get Bridge Constructor (had I not watched this I would have just ignored the game) and that VinCo are innovators in construction.

This was excruciating to watch. As a structural engineer I wanted to shout at Vinny for dicking around.

I know that's the point, but still...

I am dying trying to think of what my high school Drafting class used to create our bridges. It was 2006-7 and it was way more complex...you could try different materials...different loads...different thickness of materials. It was cool because after using that we had to come up with a design of little bridges we then had to build within a weight, length, and height requirements.

I played the Pontifex games back in the day, this looks like a massive step back, the materials seem even more durable than in Pontifex 1 which means less hilarious crashing down.

Picked this up for iPhone. It is fun but the bigger bridges are hard to manipulate on the small screen. iPad would probably be perfect for it. Its only 1.99 on iOS, seems like a rip off for PC.

They just need to install those arcade magnets but for bridges instead.

Vinny could try playing the game properly (and being funny as well), not just goofing off.

Love him to death, but this was insufferable at times.

(EDIT: Except for the end).

... I don't think you understand Giantbomb at all.

Anyways, this was amazing. Vinny's goofballness never fails to entertain me with games like this. The ramp bridges were incredible. I even kind of want to play this game now... $10 seems a bit much though.

Is it weird that I think this looks amazingly fun?


Nope. Probably why people have been making the exact game for at least 13 years now. I enjoyed it back when it was Bridge Builder in 2000 =)
