Goat Simulator is a beautifully-rendered but ultimately pointless video game with an absurdist sense of humor that will appeal to many teens and young adults. The premise of the game is that the player, as a goat, explores a realistic suburban world and causes mayhem wherever possible. Everything is exaggerated; the goat is capable of destroying gas stations, flinging people around like rag dolls, and using a trampoline to fly hundreds of feet in the air. The world is a sandbox, and though there are achievements to unlock (mainly expressed in cultural references and inside jokes), the point is to explore. The keyboard controls can be a little disorienting, though they can be modified, and moving the goat avatar around requires some practice. The game is obviously unfinished; there are many glitches, and while the goat can’t die, if you are forced to respawn, you start over at the beginning. Gameplay is fun for as long as the player remains curious, since there is no story to provide motivation. The in-game world is large, though, and there is apparently no limit to what the player can do. This game requires a childish sense of humor, but young players (or adults who appreciate absurdity) will enjoy exploring the world and blowing up the occasional gas station. Recommended. Grades 9 ( )
