|CLOSED: CONTEST FOR 1BP: Recommend me a ****ing weird/interesting video game|
More or less what the title says, but within certain formats. I’ve played quite a few odd ones, but I’m always looking for more ways to be weirded the hell out. Rules are as follows:
Please include a brief description of the game, and if possible, a link to a blurb and/or video of it.
I like pretty much any genre, I’m not too fussy there.
’Weird’ can be ‘random Japanese crap’ (Katamari Damacy), ‘bizarre yet intriguing’ (killer7), ‘awesomely trippy’ (Rez), ‘experimental concepts’, ‘creepy as ****’ (Silent Hill), ‘however the hell you clbumify Metal Gear Solid 2’, etc.
I’ve played a lot of games, if I tell you I’ve played a game, please pick a different one so it’ll still count. I’ll make sure to comment on and possibly compliment your original choice though Log in to see images!
For obvious reasons please try to pick a game for a format I can easily obtain it for. These include the following:
-PS2 (PAL region)
-4th generation or lower consoles (4th gen = SNES, Genesis, etc)
-PC games that aren’t especially demanding/recent (my computer is ****, and has trouble running games more than about 5 or 6 years old Log in to see images!)
-Wii/Gamecube (PAL region)
-Game Boy Advance
FRAN IS A POOP LOL
I’ll pick the best suggestion after I get enough of them.Something_Witty edited this message on 10/02/2008 7:56AM

Super Smash Brothers Brawl for the Wii, Sumer Smash Brothers Melee for the GameCube and Blood Will Tell for PS2.
Super Smash Bros. Brawl:
Super Smash Bros. Melee:
Blood Will Tell:
And you have Battle Stadium D.O.N. for PS2/GC, but it’s not Pal, so i don’t know.

I already own all the Smash Bros. games, dunno if I’d call them ‘weird’ really, but great games nonetheless.
Blood Will Tell looks pretty awesome, Osamu Tezuka (creator of Astro Boy) wrote the story apparently. Concept looks pretty great too.

MDK, 1 or 2. I told you about this game before, but I don’t know if you’ve taken a look at it yet. MDK 1 is technically abandonware, so it can be downloaded here, and MDK 2 can be found cheap for PS2 and PC.
In the games, you play as a janitor employed by a mad scientist, who decided to take a permanent vacation from earth. When aliens attack, the Dr. sends you down to earth equipped with an experimental coil suit. What follows is an action platformer with plenty of shooting and jumping in weird alien landcrawlers.
2 also allows you to play as the Dr. himself, and his furry, gun toting, six limbed abomination of science, Max.
If that hasn’t sold you, it’s made by the same team who made Earthworm Jim. Which is another game you should probably check out.

Tail of the Sun for the original Playstation. You play a caveman and your goal is to make a tower to the sun out of mammoth tusks. To do that you have to roam the world and try to find mammoth. There’s not a lot to do in the game, but I got a lot of mileage out of running around and killing animals with my stick, then dieing and letting someone else in my tribe go out in the world.
Psychonauts (PS2) isn’t bad either. It’s a platformer about a summer camp for psychics who do battle inside people’s heads. It has some pretty funny moments.PhineasPoe edited this message on 10/02/2008 10:25AM

you play a little girl who is afraid to go outside. the whole game is pretty much done through you sleeping, when you go into your bed you enter a dream world with quite a few doors. you go through these doors and watch events, pick up “effects” (you can get things ranging from a bicycle to move faster to just having poop hair. some effects do nothing, but to beat the game you need to find all of them)
it’s just a generally creepy game, and very strange
the site i linked probably has a better description, and an english version (you *might* need to install an eastern language pack to play it but imo it’s worth it)

I have the weirdest game on the planet to reccomend to you, but the only way you can play it is through an emulator and a ROM unfortunately…
It was never released outside of Japan, it goes for really high prices on Japanese auction sites apparently.
It’s called LSD – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LSD_(video_game)
It’s basically a game based on dreaming. It has no goal, you just play through levels of dreams which differ each time…
I’m not kidding, ****ing ANYTHING can happen in this game and that is why it scares me to ****ing death. I actually can’t play it with my headphones on…
One dream I went into this room and everything was normal, did some stuff then woke up eventually…
Next time I go to sleep, I go to the same room and there’s this big ****ing inflatable thing that leaps out at me when I touch it, I was ****ing **** scared
It’s based on one of the staff members’ diary of dreams that he’d been keeping for a decade and I’m tellin’ ya, this guy has some ****ed up dreams…

Get Psychonauts for the PC right now. ****ing awesome. You basically go in people’s brains and do some crazy ****, but the story and gameplay is awesome. It sounds kinda lame, but trust me it is one of the best games I have ever played.
some crazy screenshots:

It has some of the best level design and dialogue in any game I’ve ever played. Fun and funny the entire time.
You can keep the BP, just get this game.
Oh shi- phineas poe already suggested it. Anyway, give him the BP and get this game.FAIL edited this message on 10/02/2008 11:56AM

PAL GCN: Doshin The Giant Wiki
Briefly: Part God-sim, Part ****ed-up-version of Pikmin. I really can’t explain it briefly, read the wiki.
PAL PS2: Mr. Mosquito Wiki
Briefly: You are a mosquito. Fly around, suck some blood, don’t get killed. It’s a bit more complex than that.
PAL GCN: Donkey Kong Jungle Beat
Breifly: It’s a platform game, but for NO ****ING REASON YOU PLAY IT WITH BONGOS. Fun and confusing. Bongo’s are cheap as **** now if you don’t have them already.
MEGADRIVE: Kid Chameleon
Breifly: Side scrolling platformer with hundreds of stages, and exits that dont tell you where they lead. There are helmets you collect to power up differently (Ninja, Tornado, Fly, Axe Murderer, Knight, etc.) and will allow you to progress through the stages differently. Multiple exits, infinite paths, one long bum trip to the end. Without a walkthrough you may never finish it. (Don’t use a walkthrough, woman's genitals)aSh-gangSTA-685 edited this message on 10/02/2008 11:53AM

OOC: Play Chulip. It’s silly and weird and awesome. Lots of different kinds of puzzles and mini-adventures/quests. Lighthearted and sweet. Unusual art style. Looks/feels a bit like a kids’ game, but I don’t think kids would actually like it. Some of the puzzles are pretty challenging. Not here for the BP, just want to spread the word about an underappreciated game that’s dear to my heart.Eirairaianna edited this message on 10/02/2008 12:25PM

The game is A-W-E-S-O-M-E, i tell you.
For Wii or GC i don’t know another game because i don’t own it. Did you already play Legend Of Zelda for the Wii? I heard it’s a really great game too.
Weird games for PS2… Let me think… Katamari Damacy, but you already played it… Anyway:
Other three great games for PS2:
Death by Degrees:
And for PC you have Hamster Ball, probably the most awesome game that i played.
If you want download links, just tell.Pinacho edited this message on 10/02/2008 3:00PM

Good game! P hard as well in some parts.
Donkey Kong Country for the SNES is ****ing awesome and I would bumume the sequels are good too. Metal Marines was great (like a simpler real time Command & Conquer) but not really very weird and I used to love Lost Vikings.
I’ll search for links if you’ve never played them.
Oh and God Of War 1 & 2 are the best PS2 games I’ve played along with the obvious MGS’s.Andy_Dextruss edited this message on 10/02/2008 3:21PM

I’m shocked to see no one’s suggested No More Heroes for the Wii yet.
It’s an absolutely insane game. You somehow have a light saber, and you just need to go around killing millions of dudes. The plot is absolutely ridiculous, but I had a lot of fun with it. I can’t even describe how crazy it is. Cartoony blood spews everywhere, coins fly out of dead people, and you get to do “jobs” like mowing a lawn, collecting scorpions, etc. It’s sorta like Grand Theft Auto Lite, with less killing random people and more killing a million bad guys.
