Goat Simulator takes the animal avatar in a cloven-hoofed direction. It’s an open-world third-person action game where you steer your goat to do as much damage as possible. What started as a joke prototype turned into this extremely silly game with a cult following. It's bizarre, silly and involves overblown violence.
