Why I Buy Weird Games [ VIDEO ]

Yup, this pretty much sums a good chunk of my gaming choices up perfectly. Now if you will excuse me, my copy of Culdcept Saga is not going to play itself.

    Mentioned Persona 4, but, I mean, I don’t think that qualifies as “weird” ya know?

    • Xeromex

      I think it used as a visual reference more than a weird reference game as he says “wearing new masks, a different persona” not Persona.

    • Nox

      A game where teenagers enter a TV to fight phsyical manifestations of negative emotions using various mytholgoical beings with a talking bear isn’t weird?

  • Jixamn

    I enjoyed this and I agree with it. Wish there was more to it though. Rabbit hole could go much deeper and I’d love to see someone do something with this concept. The importance of “taking a risk” could really be elaborated on and innovation could have played a larger role as well.

  • XSin

    Loving the JSRF in there, it’s one of my alltime favourite titles, even after a friend ruined it for me by pointing out a feature that had slipped by my notice somehow and now I can never EVER un-notice :(

    • Blur

      OK, curiosity got to me. What feature?

    • Rook

      Was that JSRF or the original JSR? (I’m stoked it’s getting a PC release soon)

  • Phaelin

    I think Ganbare Goemon fits well here.

  • Sensei Le Roof

    Yes, but have you been a bunnygirl straddling a giant missile? A stick figure aboard a paper airplane? An angelic PIG?!

    Gentlemen… Sexy Parodius.

  • Zabathan

    Okami is fantastic!

  • Lightslash

    Gitaroo Man ftw ^.^

  • MediaDuke

    Steve, don’t you mean your copy of Culdcept Saga is not going to NOT play itself? ^_^ Ahhh…I crack myself up.
