Games that one really must play to truly belive they exist.
Most enjoyable with friends, drunk or both.
P.S. Yes, expect many Japanese Stuff. MANY, MANY Japanese stuff. And also, expect games that no one knows of.
LSD: Dream Emulator (1998)
Everytime your parents say videogames are bad for you, show them this game and shout with a dramatic voice: "Look, thanks to videogames I don't need to waste your precious money (optional "precious" if you're not currently with financial problems) with DA EVIL DRUGS"
An alien suddenly crashes to earth, killing the president of Japan and the entirety of his comitee. Then, to amend her error (yes, her. The alien is a woman. And more important: she's a loli, of course. It's a japanese game!) she puts you as the vice-president and your childhood president as the "United States of Japan" president (?) in the "Snow House (!)"
Your potential girlfriends include your mentioned childhood friend, the President of Russia Vladimira Putina, the chief of Staff which is ALSO your childhood friend, and the personification of the alien ship.
Yes, that's the actual plot. God bless Japan.
Also known as Kuri Kuri mix, you are two rabbits and you need to rescue the moon.
Most fun co-op game in PS2 ever. And you can play up to 4 people with 2 PS2 controllers, something very rare.
Take THAT MARIO PARTY!
Yume Nikki (2004)
This one is both weird and creepy. You control a girl in her room that you can't leave, and you can access to a door that leads to several dream-like areas filled with wacky and strange stuff, which you can only open if you're sleeping.
Where you can find powers.
More than weird, creepy or horryfing, this game can get boring. But it also has a special charm.
It's the most accurate representation of a nightmare ever, I promise. No wonder it's called "Diary of Dreams"
Incredible Crisis (1999)
A mini-game like videogame.
The plot involves a family with a daughter and a son, that need to come back home as soon as possible because today is the grandma's birthday. Of course, each member of the family has their own plot (Father, Mother, Daughter, Son).
So why this is weird?
I'll only say that the Father comes back home with a metro train (I don't mean by metro, I mean that he literally appears in the garden of their house driving a metro train) and the mother appears with a FRIGGIN FIGHTER AIRCRAFT. And that's not even their final form.
Take up your own conclusions.
(Too bad it never had a sequel or remake :( )
Genital Jousting (2018)
[Insert penis joke #1]
[Insert penis joke #2]
[Insert penis joke #3]
[Insert penis joke #4]
[Insert balls joke #1]
Yes, I'm not even bother to make a description. I'm a dick.
It's literally impossible to describe Wario Ware with more than "it's a collection of microgames, which are minigames that last 5 seconds or so". One must play it to see how it really works. And how damn cool it is.
The Gamecube game has the same minigames as the GBA version, but the best and vast multiplayer modes. Pure fun all of them. And since there are so many, it's hard to not get bored.
EyeToy: Play (2003) (2003)
EyeToy: Play is probably weirder if you didn't play it when it came out. The game doesn't have a strange or absurd plot, but the games are pretty strange, since you're the protagonist.
And the special effects are pretty trippy.
It gets better with friends and will to exercise and lose weight.
Hatoful Boyfriend (2011)
Let's be honest, ¿which list wouldn't be completed with the infamous Dating sim (actually a Visual Novel) where you DATE PIDGEONS?
Even funnier that the images are of actual pidgeons, no special effects or anime drawings.
This game was probably made when some random Japanese reunited and say: "Hey, you know, how could we do a triangle love story as Japanese as possible"?
So they made Catherine: A game insanely hard which the 99% of the time is actually about BOX PUZZLES which are, of course INSANELY hard, with some normal bosses like an unborn baby that screams "Daddy", an Ass that is alive and a bloody married wife with a machete.
By the way, did I mention that in these segments you play as a guy in underpants and you're surrounded by goats (which happen to be people)?
Just a normal day in your japanese life.
You gotta admit, this game is pretty weird. And it's not even complete it!
But that's why it's awesome.
Of course, no list would be completed with less than twenty Japanese Eroges.
This one is also pretty infamous, you basically molest and rape different women.
Katamari Damacy (2004)
Let's destroy the earth: Now with cute characters!
But not for anything of course, we need material to create stars that our father destroyed cuz it's lazy
Conker's Bad Fur Day (2001)
Another famous game, one of Rare's last masterpieces.
It's too bad it never got a sequel (which was planned).
Basically it's a world full of cartoony characters that make adult stuff, like drinking, sex, and bloody murders half-censored.
And a boss that's literally a mountain of shit.
Summer Lesson (2016)
Also known as: The ultimate Birth Control method, NWO Illuminati best tool and even better: Waifu Simulator - The Ragnarok.
It would be funny, if it wasn't so childish, so stupid and so obviously directed to Fanservice. Although weird, it will be clearly a huge disappointment.
(P.S. Who I'm kidding, the blonde waifu is true laifu)
Yume Miru Kusuri happens in the real world, with real protagonists and a plot that could happen in real life, but somehow it ends up having an absolutely crazy plot, where people can apparently fuck in any public place possible without getting noticed.
It involves a plot where tasering a girl in the middle of the class (IN JAPAN!) gets a free-pass from the teachers AND choking a girl to death is acceptable. The other plot you meet a girl who lives in the street, to which of course you fuck her in a public bank AND where you work. She also ascends to heaven, literally, in front of you in one of the endings.
Spoiler: Those ones aren't actually the craziest plotline.
If I explained you why Umineko is weird, I would spoil you too much.
Just play it.
Or read the manga. While having the OST as background music.
(Avoid the anime, is bad).
Michael Jackson's Moonwalker (1990)
I would explain this game, but thankfully, the Angry Videogame Nerd (AVGN) already did it for me.
And I can't beat him in any way.
Takeshi no Chōsenjō (1986)
The ending of the game involves a giant flying Takeshi Head saying that you should do something with your life because you spent too much time playing this game.
The rest of the game is like that. Shitty game and dickhead developers. Full combo.
Katawa Shoujo (2012)
After dating the President of the country, a pidgeon and the other crazy things, dating people without arms, without legs or burnt doesn't sound like a much deal, but it's still pretty fucking weird and disgusting. I mean, who would do that if it wasn't for the LULZ?
(Who am I kidding, we all know I put this to recomend it to people).
Gal*Gun: Double Peace (2015)
What the hell, Japan? The game
I'm not even bother to describe it, since Pewdiepie did it (and we can't beat 'em folks)
Impossible boobs physics, random transformations, random clothing that shatters convinently, random ninjas and random lolis.
Sometimes in life we must knee before perfection and admire every single bit of it. That is one of those moments.
I can't belive I could put 22 games before this one. Jap... I mean, Internet is sure a big place indeed.
Join in your quest to bring LOVE once again to the Universe! Embark into the heart-shaped heart ship of Dr. Hopsy-Flopsy and reduce the antilove with your pink bullets, your shield and your GODDAMN YAMATO CANNON.
(P.D. Whatever you're doing, it's less fun than playing this with friends. Or girlfriend. Or boyfriend. Or family. Or SOMEONE. Seriously.)
I could make a sub-folder that consisted ONLY of japanese games. And in this sub-folder, there would be ANOTHER sub-folder of Visual Novels, also known as Dating sims, or Eroges. But well, if you're reading this from the beggining you should know that already.
This is another one of this weird games that we just give too much credit for. It just exist to fill the fantasies of a really short and specific public. We shouldn't critize it too much, but... IT AIN'T FUN??
As the cover suggest, your unlucky protagonist can get laid with a cricket girl (with fanservice and everything, really). She's not the only "monster" in the game, since there's also a bat girl and other chuthulu-like antropomorfic beings, but the main interest is the criket.
By the way, the newer version allows you to date a human witch. HERESY!
