Despite the difficulty of achieving comedy in video games, these titles created some amusing jokes.
Jazzpunk, a first-person puzzler, may be one of the most underrated games of all time. Although the game is short and there has been little investment, it is an incredible experience and there is no other game like it.
The opening scene depicts an unnamed suitcase going on an auto-carousel of luggage in an unfinished subway facility. The hilarity never stops after that. Every frame has a joke in it, and there’s something to make you laugh around every turn.
Far Cry: Blood Dragon
This game in the Far Cry series stands out for a number of reasons. Blood Dragon’s full-on mockumentary of the 1980s is compelling, in contrast to the majority of Ubisoft’s games that have a light sense of humor. Far Cry 3’s Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is an expansion/spin-off of the original, and while the map is repetitious, the story and new features more than make up for the shortcomings.
The Simpsons: Hit & Run
In light of the fact that the Grand Theft Auto series is far too violent for young people, Hit & Run on The Simpsons is an excellent substitute.
The Worms Series
The Worms series has been around for a long time and can be found on just about any modern computer or gaming device. There is no difference in gameplay when playing on a console or on a mobile device: it’s always just as humorous and enjoyable as before.
Saints Row IV
Inspired by Grand Theft Auto, the Saints Row series increased the silliness and crazy tenfold in the GTA series. Nonetheless, Saints Row IV pushes the third-person open-world game to a whole new level of absurdity. In this entry, the player’s character assumes the office of President of the United States. As Earth is attacked by aliens, the United States swoops in to save the day in an action-packed game that never seems to end.
There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension
PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One and Xbox 360
As a prelude, we’ve made a game that riffs on classic video game franchises such as Pac-Man and The Legend of Zelda.
WarioWare-style mini-games, dynamic landscapes, and innovative riddles compel players to think outside the box in There Is No Game.
If you get stuck, you may use the tip system, which includes a slew of Easter eggs and nods to some of our favorite games.
Untitled Goose Game
Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One
Additionally, Untitled Goose Game is a fun but simple stealth game that uses the irregular nature of geese to create some of the most memorable fowl jokes ever.
Anxious birds are the primary goal of this game, which is played by two people who work together to control them and keep the other person from becoming annoyed in any way possible.
If you’re looking for a chuckle with your family or friends, but don’t expect the most in-depth or complete stealth experience, try UGG.
Totally Accurate Battle Simulator
PC, Xbox One, and Mac
Totally Accurate Battle Simulation’s name suggests that it is an online game that allows you to simulate conflicts utilizing a poorly constructed physics engine.
You can play with skeletons, witches, and other supernatural beings, as well as fight in historical wars from the Middle Ages to the Present Day.
You can’t help but be tempted to concoct a crazy strategy, like taking on an army of Roman soldiers with just seven wheelbarrows. But seeing the carnage up close and personal is far preferable.
Goose Goose Duck
PC and Macintosh
Unscripted, unplanned, and unstructured events can be found in social deception games like Among Us. When geese and ducks are thrown into the mix, things get even more ridiculous.
To keep the spaceship running smoothly, Goose Duck assigns 16 players the responsibility of doing various chores and keeping an eye out for any ducks that might get in the way of their progress. No, I’ve never heard of it.
It’s a bit of a surprise that each member is assigned a specific role and is also tasked with recognizing imposters.
Yakuza: Like a Dragon
PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox X/S
The Yakuza series continues with “Like” a Dragon, which is noted for its larger-than-life characters and for delving into topics that other games are afraid to touch on.
It’s up to you to take on the role of Ichiban Kasuga, the flamboyant Yakuza member who decides to become a hero after being betrayed by his former boss.
Turn-based fighting and RPG aspects, as well as four-player cooperative gameplay distinguish this title from the other Yakuza games.
Just Die Already
PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch are all supported.
Sandbox games are some of the most fun because of the unpredictable nature they can take on when multiple gaming systems collide.
Active non-player characters (NPCs) behave differently based on their age in the game’s open world, which is packed with cars, guns, and other items you can use to assault them.
There is a good chance that you’ll stumble across hidden paths and surprises while exploring the game’s vast landscape. It was built by the same team who made Goat Simulator.
PC, Linux, and Macintosh
It’s a safe haven for gamers to create their own video game fantasies, thanks to the Garry Mod and its welcoming community.
It’s up to you whether you want to develop your own game, play it with your buddies, or just have fun. There are a plethora of add-ons and mods to try out.
Before you start designing anything, familiarize yourself with the settings and tools. Your friends might enjoy a challenging platforming game. You’ll probably like watching them fail over and over again.
Tales From The Borderlands (2014)
The creators of The Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead: A Telltale Games Series are behind Tales from the Borderlands, an episodic game in five parts. Two heroes embark on a journey to achieve greatness in the wild realm of Pandora, where they are greeted by the trademark comedy of the Borderlands series. There are two characters you’ll portray: Rhys (the suit), who dreams of being Handsome Jack; and Fiona, who dreams of being Pandoran’s most successful scammer. As unwitting accomplices in a mission to recover money that they believe is theirs You’ll battle bandits, gangsters Lords, and even Vault Hunters in this unique take on the award-winning setting created by Gearbox Software.
Creating comedic video games has shown to be impossible, as evidenced by the abovementioned titles. While the singularity creates its own unique comedic structures, traditional comedy structures are also adapted to match the medium. It may be more significant than attempting to define a genre (after all, what is a genre other than a marketing tool?). All games have to share one thing: a sincere desire to make people laugh. laugh. Since that initial purpose, a variety of techniques, mechanical or narrative-driven, have been created. In my opinion, this is the best narrative to tell.
