Some game's are just plain weird.

Bad Mojo was pretty dammned wierd - playing the game as a cockroach and all which that entailed was pretty strange, although it was very cool too.

I picked up a copy of the "Redux" version of Bad Mojo a couple of months ago, and the CD included a documentary of how the game came into being, and how they managed to get the hyper realistic feel without the technology of today - it was even wierder than the game itself, particularly how they came to get the dessicated, rotting rat images onto the screen.

Yeah, very cool, very wierd :blink:

I'd say Postal 2 is downright mental, or the designers at least, has to be... Not neccessarily a bad thing, but mental all the same

Monty Python grants some very strange games indeed. Being chased by huge feet is not something I experience on a daily basis.

And, on an old all time favourite of mine: The concept of Lazy Jones is kinda weird: A game about playing computer games.

EDIT: A concept that I found intriguing, was to have two games compatible against each other, like Apache and Hind, only it would be fun in a deranged way to have Apache VS say, Formula 1. I wonder what it would be like to come down the stretch on Hockenheim, driving like a maniac to escape that Hellfire missile at your 6 o'clock.

I remember a game on the C64 where you played a robot. I looked simlar to Number 5 (Johnny 5 from short circuit).

You had to cook. :blink:
I mean, cooking isn't that weird but being a robot having to cook certain recipes in the correct order and manner otherwise the customers become angry and throw their bar stool after you and if you're hit three times the game is over cause the robot's broken.... :blink: That was a weird game...

I tried being good at it for a while but I became frustrated.
Being eight or nine years old my english wasn't too good and I couldn't understand all the ingredients.

Oooh! I'd forgotten about those Monty Pyhton games. Playing tetris with corpses (and of course, some of them not being dead yet) was definitely strange

By the way, in retrospect, Michael Jackson dancing around trying to "save" children was almost prophetic. Perhaps he was trying to tell us all something even way back then?

Crazy Golf: giant hamburgers bouncing up and down on the course. Each layer separating at a different rate from the rest so you get a good view of the tomatos, onions, etc.

I have no mouth and I must scream
Aura - Fate of the Ages

They're both weird in that their story either doesn't make any sense or it's just twisted.

Oooh, I've always meant to get around to playing I Have No Mouth But I must Scream, but I've never gotten around to buying myself a copy. One Day I hope.

Also, that game where you "wake up" in a dream inside a fairground, but you're really small. I think it is on Abandonia somewhere, but I can't remember the name - That one was pretty wierd
