Oh man Rayman 2 was my jam as a kid! Rayman forever is still my fav.

I also still play morrowind to this day.

@Logan as well ha Atleast randomly while testing products.

Its a legendary game.


@Logan Greetings sir, I haven’t seen a forum for the most ridiculous weapons in a game, but there is one that stands out to me. In Fallout 3 you can craft the Rock-It Launcher. I am sure you know that it can launch just about anything! From plates to pencils, I threw all kinds of junk into it. I went about shooting NPCs with coffee cups and teddy bears for a while, and the deaths were just brutal. It certainly is a over the top weapon as it turns the most useless junk into ammo strong enough to kill a Deathclaw.
