What’s the most WTF game you’ve ever played? The Controller Freaks gang rounds up some of their favorite oddball games in their latest video, looking at some of the stranger titles to make their ways to consoles and PCs past. (Warning: language is a little NSFW.)
According to comedian Alex Berg, “There is a certain sense with video games where you feel like somebody sat down and was like, ‘How can I turn this fever dream into something profitable.'” How indeed, comedian Alex Berg, how indeed.
For me personally, Winkysoft’s The Adventures of Tom Sawyer for the NES ranks pretty highly in my list of WTF games. Retroactively, though – I didn’t understand as a wee lad how weird it was that Mark Twain’s playful satire would be translated into a game (especially one with a giant, racist Indian caricature as one of the bosses). But that’s video games!
