In an ongoing effort to sell as many games as possible, it’s rare for developers and publishers to push boundaries and drift outside their comfort zones. That same way of thinking doesn’t necessarily fit with today’s indie market, but it seems that most AAA (and we use that term loosely, of course) developers are afraid of thinking outside the box.
Here at What’s Your Tag?, we thrive on the bizarre. Whether it be video games, music, movies, or even books, the weirder the better for us. Miles has streamed traditional games like Neverwinter and Mortal Kombat in the past, but last night we had one of the loudest and craziest crowds we’ve ever had in attendance for a little indie game by the name of Mega Coin Squad; in which the purpose is to collect as many coins as possible without being decapitated, immolated, or skewered on a pile of spikes.
So today we ask you, dear readers, what is the weirdest game you’ve ever played?
For me, personally, I would say it’s a toss up between Amazing Frog? and Shadows of the Damned. Amazing Frog? is an open-world sandbox game where you control a frog and do whatever the hell you want–blow up cars, travel through time, go to the moon, PVP your friends, get eaten by sharks. Think Goat Simulator, but with a bit more depth and insanity.
In Shadows of the Damned, you have a buddy named One-Eyed William (bonus points for getting The Goonies reference) who saves your checkpoints by dropping a deuce at your feet. You get weapons named after genitalia, ride in to hell through a stripper’s anus, and chug tequila to regenerate health. Good times!
