If you're talking about how it shatters, but stays in place, it's because it's tempered glass, which acts like that in real life. Basically what tempered glass is is glass that has been treated to be under a constant, even, internal pressure, and then covered by some sort of laminate. This increases its strength and causes it to act like that when a bit of it is broken. It's used in auto glass because of that, because it shatters into tiny pieces rather than huge razor-sharp shards. As a side effect, the rest of it will also shatter, but otherwise stay in place if a bit of it is broken. Thus, that's what happens with the glass in-game.
