What is the strangest game you've ever played?

This month's article in GameInformer magazine got me thinking. They had Mr Mosquito and that was a good pick for me, but the rest seemed either lame or were extremely rare. I'm not going to judge though, because I would have the first Oddworld on my list (farting as gameplay, heck yeah) and Conker's Bad Fur Day and even Clayfighter ("Bad Mister Frosty!") or Earthworm Jim. What are the weirdest games you remember playing? Is there something out now that you would recommend for a "weirdness" junky like myself? For those of you in non-American markets, especially Japan, what games are your "weird" faves? (Because, chances are, the'll never make it to the US!)

The weirdest game I ever played was Jackie Chan Stunt Master on my Playstation... I tried the game, but not liked it, so I haven't played for a long time, and one day, when I was searching through my CD's I found it, and thought about playing it... So I got the PS out of the closet and put the Jackie Chan Stunt Master back in, played 3 levels, and then the credits appear... I was like ... Oh My God What The Heck was that? I just wasted my time to finish a game that has only 3 levels, no storyline, no help, no cinematics, no nothing... That my friend was the strangest game ever.

I haven't played it but it sounds like that may be the LAMEST game ever. Does Jackie Chan know his name is on that? And I thought Call of Duty 3 was too short! Thanks!

I don't know if Jackie Chan knows about the game, but in my opinion, it is the lamest game ever :)) I haven't played Call of Duty 3, only the first 2 games, which I enjoyed... Have to play the third part too ;)

It's awesome from an historical point of view and great graphics on my PS2 version, but it felt too easy and too darn short. Relatively speaking, of course.

One of the strangest games I played was Katamari Damacy. You push a ball around and things stick to the ball. When more things stick to it, the ball grows. Eventually you can pick up people houses and cars. This game actually got kinda popular I definitely think it is strange.

I remember a game on the Super NES that was called Ballz. It was fighters in the shape of balls and when you beat them they would break apart and bounce everywhere. It was a game where you fought in a 3d environment. It was a wierd game but the graphics were good.

well if u are looking for weird stuff then you should play those flash games on pc... one of the weirdest was in which u were some girl out to take revenge against her family and all u had do was to 'slap' ur rivals on their faces with the movement of ur mouse cursor and also dodge their attacks. the theme of the game was japanese and along with the music...

This is a pretty good discussion and video games are very important in peoples lives because they are an excellent source of entertainment and they are a good way to relax when you are overly stressed out,since everyone suffers from stress since stress is all around us,and everyone needs a way to channel that stress and frustration positively,and especially games about slaughtering aliens like Halo and Halo 3 are good games for stress relieving or at least that is my opinion,and they are a good way to get by when you are really bored,or you have nothing to do all day,or if it is one of those days where you do not want to leave the house for no reason,then video games help the time pass faster which is a really good thing if you ask me,and I am sure there are a lot of people out there who have played games they think are really weird of crazy,and I am sure there are people who like those type of games,and then I am sure there are people who turn away from unusual games and do not like playing them,and I can understand why some people would like weird games,and why others would dislike weird games,because I am sure there are some really weird games out there in the world,since they are always coming out with new video games for people to play,and it sounds like you are definitely a lover of weird games,and that is pretty neat,and I bet there are some weird games that are kind of fun,and I bet you are never bored when you play video games since you like the unusual lol and I bet it adds spice to your life one of the weirdest game I have ever played would be Oddworld a Strangers Wraith which was a game my brother got on X-box he got me to borrow it because he thought I would like it,I played it for a little while and I could not stand it,it was so weird and I did not like using live ammo to capture things,I prefer to play games where I am firing actually bullets at things,and my brother told me to keep trying it that I might like it,but I never did,and it sat on the X-box until my brother finally took the game back,and I told him I never wanted to play that game again,and when he got rid of his X-box he gave me and my fiance most of his games,and he asked me if we wanted that game,and I said no a flat out no,I told him if he brought that game over here I would send it back to him lol,even if I had to mail it to him, because that is how much I did not like that game,but other than that I do not think I have played any weird games,but I am sure I will probably find some more weird ones in the future,because me and my fiance are always looking for new games to play,so we can expand our collection since we have a Nintendo 64,a Nintendo Game Cube,a X-box,and a Halo 3 Edition X-box 360 which is my favorite.

I do love weird games and I loved oddworld but I only have Abe's oddysee I couldn't get more of the series. I can't decide between Gregory's horror show or Freak Out, as to which is weirdest.
