Smashiest glass!

Do you love breaking glass? We feel your pane. Every time we play a videogame, we have to shoot and melee every window or other potentially breakable object. The tinkle of shattering glass is like music to our ears. The sound of glass breaking is so bad-ass, even wrestler “Stone Cold” Steve Austin uses it in his entrance song. When games do it right, there is little more satisfying than watching glass crash and fall into millions of pieces. In fact, we love it so much that we’ve compiled a smashy symphony of shattering glass for you to enjoy. Just press play!

    It is fun to smash glass in games but I wonder why so many games require you to actually smash glass to move on . That and wooden crates. But the glass part is more relevant theres even cutscenes of peopl breaking through glass. Anyways good article. Oh ya and just like everyone else here um marry me lizzie. I mean I call your cell phone 10 times a day and sent you your favorite flowers to your office. No just kidding just thought id play it up a bit for some of these guys who never seen a female game editor or reviewer. Damn

    I can't remember a single game I've played without smashing or shooting any type of glass. It's just really fun. Hearing the smash of a window pane and watching it fall silently to the ground. Just beautiful. :D

    I loved the DMM in The Force Unleashed. Breaking the focusing glass in the Death Star was quite fun.
