Where would Youtube be without the invention of pseudo-realistic videogame physics and utterly bent AI? Heck, where would civilization be? Think of all the hours we'd regain, hours we now spend chuckling morosely at the sight of virtual lorries and helicopters pinballing across the scenery.
Here are another nine videos for your bookmark folder of shame. A fair few were captured from PC versions of the game in question, because it's that or put up with grainy offscreen footage and the vocal excesses of excitable children.
1. Just Cause 2 - a new kind of barrel roll
Ah, Just Cause 2. Mother Nature's playpen. A giant desert-coloured bouncy castle, filled with things that go boom. Toss in a hook, an unbreakable grapple line and a basic absence of common sense, and you've got, well, this.
2. Just Cause 2 - getting a seat upgrade
Once upon a time, a man discovered that his plane had no wings, no jet engines and was, in fact, a motorbike. Fortunately, alternatives weren't hard to find.
3. Battlefield 3 - sunny side up
Much as a stitch in time saves nine, so a load of C4 in the right place saves you the hassle of looking for an uncontested parking space. Classic old housewife's proverb, there.
4. GTA 4 - mass cop suicide
I fought the law and the law ran repeatedly off a cliff, then exploded.
5. Ikaruga - two birds, one stone
This one's not an in-game stunt, but tell me the sight of somebody playing one of the Dreamcast's toughest shmups in "single player co-op" doesn't give you goosebumps.
