The 30-Day Gamer Challenge – Day 27


The funniest game you’ve played

Tim Schafer. All of his games. Unfortunately, I still haven’t finished Brutal Legend because the RTS mechanics are kinda awful, but it appeared to have a hilarious plot and characters, and got me laughing quite a few times in the early goings. Shafer’s other games, including Psychonauts, Grim Fandango, Full Throttle, Day of the Tentacle, and the Monkey Island franchise, are all consistently well written and notably funny.

If forced to select just one of these, I would have to go with Psychonauts. Being a platformer as opposed to an adventure game, Psychonauts‘ plot tends to be more designer-directed than player-directed, and can therefore be delivered to better comedic effect than the slower-paced, more emergent narrative of the others. I’m also far more familiar with its content, which is unbelievably zany.

This is actually one of my favorite games, and its sense of humor certainly doesn’t hurt that fact.
