Tomb Raider 2
Butler of Death
|Oh sweet Jesus wolves!|
You were able to explore her mansion for what I believe was the first time in Tomb Raider 2. Within this mansion were several obstacle courses, a few hidden areas, and a farting butler. This butler was simultaneously the most annoying and the most amusing arrangement of polygons in my young life. He would follow you around into any room you explored, no matter how impossible it was to reach, just groaning and farting. He would sneak up behind you and stand at your back in the darkest recesses of the house. He would get in your way just as you made a critical jump. He would always be there, groaning with his tea tray and unblinking eyes.
|Stay in there you psycho!|
Occasionally this method would not work, somehow he would escape. On these very rare occasions the blood lust in his eyes would become so fierce I would tremble on my couch. Luckily I had devised a plan to keep him sealed forever. There was a large square shaped bush which you would crawl under to get to a certain area. The butler could not enter this bush for some reason, I had deemed it the Holy Bush. Using the same method as the freezer I would lure him in and then attack. Every time I shot the Butler he would go back about a centimeter and I could actually push him into the holy bush this way. When the dust settled and the shells all fell he would be trapped in the Holy Bush, unable to escape at all. I like tho think that the brambles and thorn dug into his evil soul an anchored him in place for eternity.
While the first method was not a glitch it still fell under the "playing the game in an unintentional way" category. Also the actual Bush glitch would not have made any sense without the first mentioned.
What did you learn?
Though my adventures in Lara mansion I learned that you should never ever trust butlers especially if they fart. It also taught me to enjoy the silly things in a game even if I can not enjoy the game itself.
P.S. I know this is not a glitch but it was worth mentioning.
