10 reasons garrys mod is the most BROKEN game on steam
1. Outdated engine.
- How is it outdated?

It is outdated because the engine dates back to 2003-2004 when it was created for Half life, every mod created is buggy when it comes to garrys mod, causing extreme lag or even most cases causing you to crash.

2. Terrible useless updates, causing MORE lag.
- How much lag?

I mean, my friends game froze TWICE cause he sat in a damn seat, a SEAT. How much worse does this game gotta get? they made gmod worse just from updates in 2019 causing discrepancy in maps, and making them extremely buggy and laggy. Even with out some mods, or even any mods in some cases, the game will lag, EVEN with high computer specs.

3. Maps being unoptomized
- In what way?

The maps are extremely done for, and are causing massive lag. In 2016-2017, maps ran just fine, even in 2018 they were super good. BUT, when the updates started coming in 2019, the game started becoming unplayable and utterly annoying, crash reports are rising HIGHLY, and there is even more discussions about helps/ problems/ bugs section then there is any other discussions COMBINED.

4. Face studios is ignoring the bugs.
- In what way?

In what way? they add more trash updates such as a gravity gun update? what good is that? why cant you instead add MORE bug fixes, rather than begging money for a change, fix the damn game.

5. Forcing users to go out of chromium for the sake of mods.
- what type of mods?

Mods such as VJ base, which was fine in Chromium for literally YEARS and it stopped functioning in chromium after the garrys mod updates. And even so, most addons are bugged out and probably wont be used cause of updates. Such as : Seat weapons, Super Gravity gun, etc. Because face punch studios craves money rather than fixing their already outdated engine of a game, called Garrys Mod.

6. Terrible workshop addons
- what type of addons?
the type of addons causing more and more disgraceful addons, are anime addons including more. They are flooded every where on the workshop. And even FNAF addons are ruining the workshop, there is no escape from these stupid addons, it is a waste of time to look at the workshop as it it just the exact same trending ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥. There is only sometimes good addons but 90% of the time its just bugged out addons that end up crashing the game 20x more than what GMOD does alone.

7. Useless crash files
- Crash files?

Yes, CRASH files, face punch studios took time out of their day to add a stupid crash file into the garrys mod files, as if, "Hey I think they are gonna crash at least 50 times this week, lets add this file into the game and they wont know about it until 4 years later, and not knowing what the problem is inside of a crash file". They knew that this game was bugged and decided to add it, instead of fixing the game. They made the users check a crash file just to not know what it means. "Lua panicking."

8. Many engine errors.
- What engine errors?

Earlier this week, my friend ran into an engine error, and guess what? we couldnt figure out the engine error and told us to download malicious files just so he can get GMOD to start working again. Which is absolutely annoying and a huge waste of our time.

9. Highly bugged multiplayer servers.
-How are they bugged?

They are bugged cause you always need to download 500 addons in their servers, and when you load in, you get dealt with 30 fps, and have rainbow seizures and morons spamming their admin commands on you, and spewing toxic words at you, and then when you leave, and load your own world, your dealt with these weird addons in your spawn menu, which you didnt want, but were there.

10. Contagious and disgusting idiotic conclusions to this game.

From my experience, 2016-2018 was the best year to play gmod, and even before that, the game was actually playable. This game needs to move to a new engine, or me and my friend can forget about this game for good. Waste of time to load the same game 10 times cause of a simple bug.

True, a year ago, Garry's mod was working great, it was one of my most favorite games I've ever played, but whats happened in the last year, Garry's mod is slowly becoming more and more broken and laggy, and yet they wont do a single thing about it, this game is slowly becoming one of my least favorite games because it is simply becoming too unplayable. My crash folder has to extend to earths core, and my computer runs perfectly fine, and can run any other game perfectly fine. The game isn't optimized enough, and if they could finally look into that, then maybe it was worth getting Garry's mod 4 years ago, I already feel like playing other games, Garry's mod is already losing my taste and its all because of this last year. Life shouldn't always be about getting money, but should also be about making the best of things, and Garry's mod definitely has an opportunity to become a really good game again.

All I wanna say is that Face punch studios has gotta fix their game somehow, make it less laggy, make it like it was a year ago, where lag was never really even a concern. It may require some work, and some effort, but that's the best thing they could do.

Couldn't be more spot on than that. Gmod is trying to bite more than it can chew, resulting in a buggy and unoptimized mess.

Wonder™ Oct 18, 2020 @ 10:40pm

Wonder™ Oct 18, 2020 @ 10:57pm

Wonder™ Oct 19, 2020 @ 3:29am 
engine errors i did not see them so i dont taik about them and the crash file well i never really checked it as for the chromium version i never played it so i cant say anything about it as for the updates well they are fine for me sure they dont do really anything importent also the last reason well its not worth to taik about cuz its a conclusion so thats really it i dont see gmod as a broken game even if it is well at least its a fun broken game

I agree entirely with your post.
I haven't run into any real problems with Garry's Mod but I can definitely agree with the workshop thing. I wish there was an option to ignore dupes in the search results because it's really hard to find anything that's actually good in the workshop now. It's all just awful dupes that do nothing but waste space in the search results.
Wonder™ Oct 19, 2020 @ 10:41am 
i mean yeah no one cares about dupes

@Baki i have 6000 hours in gmod, and i can tell you that the game has gotten worse over the span of the years.
Jack Parker Oct 19, 2020 @ 3:07pm 
btw, not dupes. its full on player models and cringe
John Malling Oct 19, 2020 @ 3:08pm 
He is completely right, Garry's mod has gotten so much worse in the last year.
John Malling Oct 19, 2020 @ 3:09pm 
I wish face punch studios could do something about it, somehow fix the game and make it just as good as it was a year ago.
