There were some weird things that happened in the gaming world this year. Let's look at 2012’s Wackiest Moments in Gaming.
Borderlands 2’s Energizing Bane is most definitely the most annoying gun. If you were expecting gunfire when you pulled the trigger, you got the sound of a goat being slaughtered instead. Or something similar to Buffalo Bill in Silence of the Lambs.
The Orc Assassin Senator

Massacre in Azeroth
It was Mass Murder in Azeroth as thousands of World of Warcraft (WoW) characters began dying one Saturday night in October.

It’s believed a Level one Priest used the “city exploit” to insta-kill both players and NPCs primarily in Stormwind, but also in Orgrimmar.
Epic Disc Fail
Some Call of Duty: Black Ops II players found themselves in the Twilight Zone when trying to install the game on PC. When the title prompted them to insert Disc 2, the disc ran a Mass Effect 2 autoplay instead.
