* MemeticLoser: The opponent truck. You ''literally'' cannot lose to it. ''Ever.'' Oh, you installed the patch to make it move? It will still stop short of the finish line. You found a way to make it cross the finish line, you say? The game ''[[NonStandardGameOver crashes]]'' because there is ''[[ObviousBeta no programmed failure state]]'' for the player losing a race. Well, at least [[VideoGame/PunchOut Glass Joe]] ''tries'' to win.

* EarWorm: The game comes with some surprisingly catchy music made by an unknown composer...although whether it plays when you run the game seems to depend on luck.
* GoodBadBugs: They're not bugs, they're ''features''! For example, the rigs [[YouFailPhysicsForever have no maximum speed when driving in reverse]]. Occasionally, the game will declare you WINNER! ''as soon as the race begins''.

* AwardSnub: Was nominated for "Worst Game of the Decade", but lost to ''SonicTheHedgehog2006''. While the latter game was definitely bad, it was nowhere near as broken as Big Rigs.
** Possibly due to the debate about whether or not Big Rigs can actually be considered a "video game".

* SoBadItsGood: So awful it's almost too funny to be in the horrible section. The game pioneered innovative gameplay [[GoodBadBugs features]] such as an opponent who never moved (if you get the patch he moves very slowly but ''never'' crosses the finish line), the ability to randomly go through scenery (or fall through the level), a track that crashed the game when loaded, the ability to accelerate ''backwards'' infinitely, climb the steepest mountains with almost no loss of speed and go ''outside the level's boundary''. As a result, the game's [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:YOU%27RE_WINNER_trophy.jpg ending sequence]] is easily the best part of the game. The [=GameFAQs=] board is a joke board devoted solely to BEING WINNER and declaring this game WINNER[[note]]It's also an AscendedMeme of sorts because the site itself uses the "YOU'RE WINNER" splash image whenever the site is taken down for maintenance[[/note]]! Even ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'' himself thinks that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h6DtVHqyYts having a game that essentially has no rules like Big Rigs is ridiculously fun]].
* TheyJustDidntCare: The most likely explanation for why the game is what it is.

* BileFascination / CultClassic: Arguably the only reason it sold as well as it did.
