What's the weirdest video game you've ever seen or played?

I think the strangest game I've ever played was Chulip. Basically, the game is about you, the new kid in town. Before moving to your new home, you have a dream where you kiss a girl under a tree. When you arrive, you see the girl of your dreams but she wants nothing to do with you. So what is your solution to wooing her? Kiss everybody in town and I MEAN everybody, including males, females, and various non-human entities. It's a silly little game that is often funny and always weird. I actually really like it and you can get it for $3 used on the PS2 at Gamestop. Fittingly, it came out on a Valentine's Day. I found the game online and thought the concept was interesting so I went to buy it. When I did, the game store employees said they had literally JUST been talking about how no one was ever going to buy that game. Lol.

The second weirdest game I've played is probably Dog's Life. You play as, you guessed it, a dog whose love interest has been captured by dog-nappers. It's your goal to find her and save her from this evil group of people. Along the way, you'll do a lot of sniffing and periodically have control over other breeds of dog. You'll have to eat food to stay healthy and what goes in must come out (and by that, I mean you are literally required to poop which you can then pick up and throw at people if you so desire). You can pee, perform tricks, herd sheep, scare mailmen, and a number of other things that doggies tend to do, all provided with witty commentary by you (Jake the dog) and other dogs and people. It's a cute game and if you don't mind potty humor, it's great for kids. I don't have it anymore but I'm actually considering getting it again because it's just so silly and fun (though sometimes repetitive as kid-games are). You can get it for $10 used on the PS2 at Gamestop.

Probably the weirdest ones I've played are Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards - old, old game, but quite strange for its time - and Call of Cthulhu - the controller vibrates more strongly the more sanity you're losing, and the picture wobbles and distorts if you don't get away from the madness.

I played some of the old Leisure Suit Larry games out of curiosity, though they were before my time. They did come out with new ones and I played both of them but they're different from the old-school ones.

That reminds me of another strange (but awesome) game I played. Eternal Darkness has a sanity meter like in Call of Cthulhu but the cooler thing about it is that when your sanity is low, things actually HAPPEN. Like, both to the character you're playing and you, yourself. Your character may be walking down a hallway and suddenly, their limbs will fall off one by one until they finally die. Then the screen will flash and it'll be like it never even happened. Or you'll go to save your game and it says it's deleting your save! And then again, it never even happened. My favorite story is when I was playing it one night, a fly went across my screen. It was bugging me so I swatted the screen to get it off. And it wasn't even really there! I thought, "Oh, okay. This is another one of this game's tricks. I'll just wait it out." So I sat there and the fly finally left so I thought it was over. But nope! DOZENS of flies crawled all over the screen and scared the crap out of me. When it was finally over with, you could still could still see the spot in the dust on my TV screen where I touched it. Lol. I really like that game. It's fun and the story is great. It's also really creepy and it's neat to play as so many different characters and see how their stories all intertwine. And, of course, there are so many sanity effects that you won't see them all in one play-through so it's fun to play over and over.

One of the strangest ones I've ever seen was called Mr. Mosquito. You play as - you guessed it - a mosquito intent on drinking the blood of a family so you can survive the coming winter. I never played it myself, and I don't have much desire to.

There's also LSD: Dream Simulator, which is exactly what it sounds like. It's a really surreal and sometimes scary game, and one I'd like to play if I ever got the chance.

Of the games I've played, Yume Nikki (not to mention its fangames) is pretty weird and awesome. Similar to LSD, it's about a girl exploring the strange world of her dreams. It's free to download, too, which is awesome.

I don't play video games. My husband does so I asked him. He said Catherine is the strangest one he's run across. I watched him play this game for a few minutes and I have to agree.

Ooh. I think I may look into that Yume Nikki. I like games like that.

And I've heard of Mr. Mosquito before. It reminds me of Chibi-Robo. Well, the "family" part of it. Chibi-Robo is kind of weird but also great. You're a tiny little robot that lives simply to clean your owners' house. But since they're having problems, you decide to try and help them out. You also help out all of the toys that live in the house which, miraculously, come alive at night. It's a great, happy game which is also anything but because of the talk of divorce. It can get pretty heavy sometimes but it has a good story and it's happy, overall. Plus, it's adorable and it teaches kids good habits because of all the cleaning you do to get Happy Points.

Catherine is soooooo great. Yes, I'd definitely say it's one of the weirder games I own. I love it so much. The first ending I got was just so bizarre but in a good way.

If you end up liking Yume Nikki, be sure to check out the multitude of fangames it has. My favorite is .Flow (the . is part of the title, fyi). Many of them have a similar premise to the original, but each has their own unique quirks and since they're all about dreams, you get to see some pretty interesting scenery in each one. Many of them are pretty creepy, too, which I love.

My husband hated it. He prefers games that allow him to shoot people. LOL Back when I played games, I preferred RPG games. The shooter games are boring to me, but he loves them.

I haaaate shooters. Well, I hate most shooters. I like a few, like Bioshock and Borderlands. Catherine is an awesome puzzle game and different from the RPGs that I have come to expect from the Persona team.
