Trivia

The minigame "Desert Bus" was created in response to a controversy over violent content in video games. Penn Jillette intended it to be most inoffensive game ever; its gameplay consisted of driving from Tucson, Arizona to Las Vegas, Nevada in real time at a maximum speed of 45 MPH, and the player is unable to pause the game, requiring 8 hours continuous play to complete, which earns the player 1 point. The maximum number of points that can be earned playing the game is 99, requiring over 33 days to complete in real time. See more »
