Happy Hump Day Survey!

A couple I can think of that haven't been mentioned:

Because this is the kind of mood I've been in lately:

And

Indy x 3

FWIW I do not endorse any of the following:
Stealing artifacts from indigenous peoples & /or Knights of the Round Table, child slavery, or collaborating with Nazis.

Cool scenes though.

Edit for typo.

Underground dungeon that doesnt look underground, because they sing to +20 000 people. Without amplification ofc

First i thought posting Nibelheim scene from Rheingold, but thought it to be d&d material with tyrant boasting with great treasures and great abilities.

Hump day!

What are your "so bad they're good" games? The B-movies of games?

I'm contractually obligated to state that I reject the "so bad it's good" - if i like it, there's something good about it that makes me like it. Also, the "b-movie" label was about subject matter, budget and expectations, not quality. The Terminator was a b-movie. Really this all seems to stem form a bizarre, puritan inclination in our culture where things have to flawless and frankly it's - *get dragged off soapbox*

With all that out off the way, the crown for wackiest, most broken game that's carried by charming enthusiasm and ambition goes to:

Clicker games. Clicker games with anime boobs.

GTAIV. It’s incredibly janky but it’s consistently janky, so once you acclimate to the low frame rates and the controller latency it becomes less frustrating. While certainly not a low budget production it earns B-Movie cred with its camp comedy and caricatures of big-budget film tropes.

I really like Nintendo's D-tier games. They have their A-list celebrity system sellers like Mario Kart, Pokémon, and Smash Bros. Then their B-tier popular-with-gamers franchises like Zelda, Metroid, and Fire Emblem. Their C-tier games are the tried and true games with modest budgets and modest expectations: Kirby, Yoshi, Wario, etc.

Then there's the D-tier of weird sh*t that's usually a one-off. Code Name Steam, Kid Icarus Uprising, Sakura Samurai, Fluidity. I love that stuff, even when I don't totally love the game. I'm glad they keep experimenting.
