Stupid sequel that actually is a lot of fun, especially in coop. Still as buggy as the first one. A lot of fun gameplay mechanics, tons of cool side quests with stupid references. The map is quite big and there are tons of things to find. All in all just a fun experience in coop.
yeah turns out I'm not 13 anymore who woulda thunked it?
This was bahhhh-fflingly good. (Wait, that's more a sheep sound). This was kinda AHHHHH-some! (Better!). Who would've thought a sequel to the meme-experimental-tech demo that took the Internet by storm would actually be an incredibly polished game? Genuinely fun, with so many details hidden within every nook and cranny of this sizeable island filled with stupid quests, hilarious references and enough collectibles to fund a goat army. The way completing quests adds related items/themes to your goat castle. The altering of the world map when a quest is completed, such as detonating a nuclear bomb in the middle of a town. The sheer amount of costumes with unique abilities, including an angry granny riding the goat armed with a yarn ball cannon(?). Just so much content for a well-priced game.
Sure, the core essence of the Goat Simulator hasn't changed. There are some unrefined bugs/glitches that can make for some frustrating moments of platforming between buildings. The driving is clunky. And once you've found the vast majority of collectibles, trying to find those last few can be absurdly frustrating. But the whole experience is SO much better, to the point where this sequel actually feels like a game rather than a demo.

This game saved my life.
I am 27.
My ex-wife and I have a daughter together, and adopted our son together. They are now both 4 years old.
When we were going through our separation, I found myself lost and miserable. I was self destructive. I got so mad one day from everything spiraling out of my control that I punched some concrete in a moment of overwhelming emotion. That caused me to break my 5th metacarpal in my right hand... my working hand... my games hand.. the hand that I held and carried my children to bed with.. The hand I desperately needed to make sure I could continue to provide.
After learning of the severity of my self-inflicted damage, I was borderline suicidal. Keep in mind that just a few months before this, I was the happiest man with no history of depression or anxiety. I have never had fits of rage, or been one to break down and cry, but I was in a low spot that just really buried me from being able to see the light on the other side.
Having nothing better to do, I searched for a game I could play, ONE HANDED while I recovered. I somehow stumbled upon this game and read some of the reviews. I decided that it had to be worth a shot... I must admit, I didn't beat the game, or play nearly as long as some of you. In fact, I may have only played this game a day or two.. With that being said, after doing so, I had a new found joy and hope for life. I was able to put behind me the pain and suffering that had been cast over me. I was able to experience other peoples joy and happiness. I was able to see the fruits of my "labor". I relaxed for 5 fucking minutes to this music long enough to realize that I was going to be okay.
After coming to that realization, I turned the game off, and I went back to work. It hurt my hand like hell but I was motivated. I stopped feeling so damn sorry for myself, and I became the father I needed to be in that moment, not the weak boy I was behaving as.
Today, I am close friend with my kids mother. We don't fight, or argue, or say hurtful things to each other. We are parents, and friends.
I now have 3 kids. My third child is, wait for it, ALSO 4 YEARS OLD. The woman I am with was going through a very similar situation at the time of my own separation, and we just stumbled in to each others life unexpectedly. We have been in a relationship for a year now, and are very happy together.
Moral of the story, you never know what life holds in store for you, and if I would have given up when all the odds were stacked against me, I wouldn't be where I am today. This silly little game helped me realize that.
