So the U.S. Open starts tomorrow. I'm not sure who I see winning it. Spieth has been so good this year, but he's a notorious second placer, so I'll say he comes close, but doesn't get it.
Any who, let's discuss!
Well, like the thread title so eloquently says. What's some of the craziest shit you've come across in video games. Whether it's a game scene, or a gameplay function, or heck, an entire freaking game as a whole being just so ridiculous. Maybe it was so bad that it became good, or that there was a huge dissonance from one moment to the next.
Basically, what are moments in games that have stuck with you over the years, maybe has become an inside joke just because it was so memorably weird and crazy.
This ain't a thread for things that have stuck with you because it was simply great (Ex. The Last of Us giving you feels). This is about the weird/funny/crazy crap that has found its way into gaming.
For example, mid 90s early 3D game Overblood. A pretty bland PS1 Resident Evil clone, with god awful acting. And one of the most hammy over-acted 'emotional' scenes i've ever come across.
Wowee the end of the year approaches so fast! It's time to vote for the 2015 Game of the Year! Rules are as follows:
1: We are nominating a maximum of ten entries per member. The title in position 1 receives 10 points, less 1 point for each game down until 1 point for position 10. You may vote for fewer than 10 games. You may not distribute your points for positions not filled among games you did vote for.
2: I am using the following point weighting system: The total number of points received by a title, multiplied by the number of times it was voted for. Ties will be broken by number of 1st place votes first and by total nominations second. This is a slight divergence from previous years, as last year games had their scores negatively impacted by a number of low nominations, so i'm trialing this method. Happy to discuss this in private message if required.
3: All games released since the creation of the last voting thread (8 December 2014) are eligible. I'll be using the earliest release date listed in Wikipedia for this purpose. Expansion packs/DLC will ONLY make a game eligible if it changes the core game that was released. In this case it will be considered a standalone title, so to speak. Happy to discuss this via PM too if you think it needs to be changed.
4: Animated discussion and debate in this thread is allowed and encouraged. Please try and keep any debate in at the least a seperate paragaph to your list so I can notice them, and if you're the type who likes to explain their choices, by all means do so - but try and use some formatting wherever you can so I can again distinguish choices much more easily. Bolded Titles/Rankings are preferred.
5: Nominations will close in a couple of weeks, likely on the 25th of December, Perth time depending on my schedule. Votes may be edited up until that date, no need to post to let me know. I'll not be recording votes until then so feel free to edit away until I announce close of nominations. The list itself will be posted between Xmas and New Years'
6: I would prefer you to indicate with your first choice how you are formatting your list. In the absence of clear instructions, I will consider your FIRST LISTED title as the HIGHEST RANKING title. Examples in the spoiler box below for minimum clear formatting
Other than that, go nuts!
