List of Top 10 Craziest Japanese Video Games Ever until 2017
10. Hatoful Boyfriend
Did you ever feel the urge to date a pigeon? We didn’t think so, but that’s precisely what the video game Hatoful Boyfriend is all about. You get to date and even take your favorite pigeon to dinner or any of a number of weird activities. The game starts in a high school called St. PigeoNation’s Institute. From there you get to choose different people, eh, pigeons, to interact with. And if that’s not all strange enough for you, you need to get time to get used to all of the interesting plays on words and other weirdness. Just don’t get feathers in your dad’s car.
9. Creature To Koi Shiyo!
Just when you thought that dating pigeons was weird, you now get to interact with all kinds of weird creatures. You begin the game by taking the place of the protagonist, Ichitarou, who is at home with his sister while his parents are abroad. That’s when a childhood friend named Kokoro, who is actually a huge cricket, comes into play. And if that’s not strange enough for you, Ichitarou’s sister is actually a baseball bat. Weird enough? No? Good, because throughout the game everybody and everything gets weirder and weirder to everyone’s mutual delight.
8. Doki Doki Majo Shinpan!
Sound the weirdness alarm! Here’s another one for you if what has been presented isn’t bad enough. This one is called Doki Doki Majo Shinpan!, which features Akuji, a high school kid who is really laid back. We’re talking comatose here. He does nothing besides being cool all of the time. All of the sudden he is approached by a spirit named LuLu, who tells him that it’s time to get going, which he does. The only trouble is that he needs to start chasing witches, which he does by all means possible. To suimmarize, everybody involved in this game is a lot weird, just like the rest of these games.
If you think this one is about some species of sea creature, you would be wrong. Instead, Seaman puts you in charge of a very special species of pet, Seaman. Seaman is actually a fish that for some reason turns into a toad. Regardless of these transformations, Seaman retains the face of a human being for whatever reason. Whatever that might be, in the course of the game Seaman says a lot of really insulting things to you, the player. The Japanese must be able to get the point of this game. Nobody else seems to be able to do that.
If this game has anything at all going for it, it’s the fact that it actually makes a little sense. That’s weird, especially when you consider what all the other games are like. But Catherine has commitment issues and other things that you, the protagonist, needs to learn to deal with. Your protagonist name is Vincent, and it seems like whatever you do, you end up waking up beside Catherine and for some strange reason, you see sheep popping up all over the game. This is one of the Top 10 Craziest Japanese Video Games Ever until 2017.
5. Kato and Ken
If any of these games gets an award for being most like the old Mario brothers, this is it. At the beginning of this game, you choose a detective to be, either Kato or Ken, and your mission is to save a businessman from whatever it is he needs saving from. This is where the game becomes strangely like Super Mario Brothers. From here you learn to jump and run, hopefully not falling, into whatever dangers you face on the way to saying the businessman. Yes, it’s intense but still weird. Birds fly around you all of the time, pooping on you, while you pee and poop all over the place.
4. Mr. Mosquito
As if these games don’t make you go through enough weird stuff, it gets worse. In Mr. Mosquito you become, what else, a mosquito. While you go through the different stages of a mosquito’s life, you attack and drink the blood of all sorts of subjects, in all sorts of different situations. You will never sympathize with a mosquito so much in your life.
Sorry. If these games are weird enough for you, let’s get into disturbing with RapeLay, which is not only disturbing but outrageous. The game is all about, well, rape. You begin the game by assuming the role of Masaya Kimura, a stalker whose purpose is to rape a mother and daughter, both members of the Kiryuu family, as they go about their daily lives. As you progress, you can find different places and circumstances to sexually humiliate the mother and daughter in whatever sick and perverted way you choose.
2. Gakuen Handsome
This game is another weird one that is totally about–believe it–chins. It’s another one of those boy love games that seems to dominate so many other countries, except this one is about a certain high school guy who comes into contact with a retarded professor and a student body president who is totally hung up on grades. It’s weird, but if that’s what you’re into.
1. Sweet Pool
Sweet Pool has got to be one of the craziest and weirdest games from anywhere. It all starts in a Catholic high school. Pretty normal, huh? That’s where normal ends and weird begins. He eventually meets another guy who is not right in the head. You spend the rest of the game trying to get rid of little monsters who grow out of your body and invade everyone else in the game to your delight.
These are the Top 10 Craziest Japanese Video Games Ever until 2017. These games are all pretty weird. Get a job and spend your time doing something more practically, much less rewarding.
