Turbo Laser Lynx Posted January 24, 2022 Share Posted January 24, 2022 Hi guys! I recently realized I was having a hard time getting past 5-30 minutes playtime in games devoid of comedy, especially if there's somewhat much dialogue. So I started googling around for a list of the funniest games, but to my surprise I couldn't find a list! What games have made you laugh out loud or amused you the most? What would be your funniest games of all time (best humour/comedy)? I came up with a few off the top of my head to start off with: *Classic, comedic point and click games: - the Monkey Island games - Sam & Max hit the road - Day of the Tentacle *Wario games have a weird and ridiculous humour that you just have to love. - the Wario Land games = classic cartoon mayhem with his "accident forms". - the Wario Ware games capture that shitty B-game vibe in a funny way, while in reality being great games. *Paper Mario - Paper Mario Color Splash is one of the funniest and most beautiful looking games I remember playing. It had me constantly laughing and I had a super good time. (Origami King stole all the praise this title should've gotten). - Paper Mario the Origami King. Beautiful and funny (but in my opinion way worse combat than sticker star or color splash). - I've heard that the Paper Mario series in general is very comedic. Haven't played the early ones though. *Mario & Luigi RPG series. - Haven't played them much, but the little I've played a few titles, I already got some giggles. - Deathspank. Pretty fun dialogue. - Worms series. Fun cartoon graphics and funny voice overs. - I haven't played that many RPG's but I've heard that Dragon Quest VIII and XI should be pretty funny. From what I've seen so far, at least the voice acting is really over the top and fun. If you have any experience of some of these games or game series, please let us know which ones you think are the most funny. I also wanted to mention that many games on old systems are really funny. Some probably unintentionally, but the limitations many times make them look both visually striking and humorous (because of the simplicity). For example Graphic design and cartoons use/have the same strengths and uses the same techniques, like restricted palette, a simple striking "message" and the viewer "filling out the rest" themselves. Anyhow, what are your favorite funny games of all time? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
