    A game called Hell Night for the PS1.


    I still have no real idea what's going on in that game, and it took me years to even remember its name. This is the first time I've even thought about it for donkey's years. I think it's meant to be a survival horror, but you played it in first person; something which is quite common amongst horrors nowadays.

    My first experience with it was walking through some bland tunnel and being eaten by a zombie\mutant. Your thread prompted me to find that walkthrough video, so that's a good thing. :D

    Not sure why I found it strange, I guess it just felt weird to me at the time.

    I would say Tomba, a strange roleplay/platforming hybrid for the Playstation 1 where you play as a caveman and fight evil pigs.

    Despite the peculiar premise it is a absolutely brilliant game and I heartilly reccomend it. I even wrote an article for it for the Hardcoregaming101 website:

    I feel like I didn't say enough about Ticket when I mentioned it in the post so here's the trailer. I feel like it show it's oddity well enough.



    (PS. this is also probably the best video game trailer in all existence.)

    MDK my gem! My fav 3rd person shooter with cool 3D on 90s.

    When I was a kid, I tried to play Tetris but I don’t know the rules. I just drop all the block and the game said Game Over. Totally confuse. Since that the game can play VS mode, I played with my lil sis and said “whoever drop the blocks fastest wins”. Until my mom played solo mode, she got no game over, I was very confuse. She played the game according to the manual or rules.

    I know I've played more strange games, but the one that comes to mind right now is Lisa: The First.

    LSD Dream Simulator, but that's kind of a cheap win.

    Othwerise, while not the WEIRDEST game ever made, one game I think often gets overlooked for its weirdness just because it's a part of a popular franchise is Zelda: Link's Awakening. The game has a shopkeeper with god-powers that zaps you to death whenever you steal from him, after the first time your in-game name is then permanently changed to 'Theif' and you are called that by all NPCs. A goat tricks Dr. Wright (The same one from Sim City SNES) into being her pen pal by mailing him a picture of Princess Peach. Link revives a Rooster from the dead just to fly across a cliff... It's probably a par for the course compared to other games on this list, that is until you find out its canon to the franchise (To be fair, they get away with it because the entire game was a dream).
