Goat Simulator Waste of Space is symptom of the nerd culture that is currently dominating the movie industry and that has a massive influence in the gaming industry, and this nutty game gets two thumbs up because of it. You are a goat in space who is able to explore, shoot, ride, destroy, play games and fall in love. It is an arcade game, while also being a circus and theme park to boot.
An MMO Simulator where the aim is to play around
There is no big story arc within the game, and there is no genuine point to playing. There is no aim of the game: you simply explore and do whatever you wish with whatever you find. Complete puzzles to earn money, or attack NPCs to earn money, or go on adventures to earn money. With your money, you may build a space colony, you may create a training simulator, and you may even build a spaceship so that you may blast asteroids in space.
The ethos of Minecraft with the sensibility of Bullfrog
There is no point to playing Minecraft beside to explore, attack, build and make your own fun, and the same applies to Goat Simulator Waste of Space. The feel and comedy in the game is similar to the nerd comedy you may have found in old Bullfrog games such as Theme Hospital and Dungeon Keeper 2. The fact that Goat Simulator Waste of Space was clearly developed by nerds with too much time on their hands is by no means a criticism, if you are going to waste your time playing a game, then you should definitely consider playing this one.
