QWOP - The Flash Running Simulator From Hell

Hello everybody!  It's been an awful long time since the last update, let's just say I had a rotten 2012.  But now it's a new year, and it's time to get rolling with the strange again!

Today let's take a look at one of the most difficult flash games in existence: QWOP.

You'll spend the majority of your time at the starting line.

The objective of the game sounds simple enough: controlling only your character's thighs and calves, run 100 meters.  Piece of cake right?  Wrong, oh so very wrong.

Thighs are controlled using the Q & W keys, while the calves are controlled by the O & P keys, and it's up to you to time the movements of each limb segment perfectly in order to propel the runner forward.  It is insanely difficult just to keep the runner balanced, and in my case, I ended up falling backwards multiple times for impressive finishes such as -2.4 meters.

Standing upright has never been this tough.
 File QWOP under one of the most deceitful concepts for a game, something that sounds so easy yet is so frustratingly difficult.  Don't believe me?  Well try out QWOP for yourself and let me know how well you finish, maybe you'll even get to 100 meters and finish the game.
