What's the FUNNIEST Videogame you've ever played ?

There really aren't that many really funny videogames around. Some have their moments but when was the last time a videogame had you in stitches ?

Leisure Suit larry comes to mind, that was hilarious !

The dialog in the original Resident Evil is still some of the funniest ever. House of the Dead 2 is a close second.

As far as games meant to be funny, Conker's Bad Fur Day was about the funniest game I played.

Hand's down, Conker's Bad Fur Day is the funniest game I've played. Games by Treasure like Gunstar Heroes, and Bangai-O were pretty funny too.

Flogian Brothers for DC is kinda funny.
Also all the jaguar games because they
are such POS and all horrible.
The graphics on checkered flag make
me laugh.

The funniest game is also the worst game I played, Space Channel 5. It was so weird I was laughing . Another hilarious game was Michael Jackson’s Moonwalker for Genesis, funny stuff!!!!

I'll second the Leisure Suit Larry series. I'd love to see a new XBOX version......

I haven't really played many games lately, but I second Sam and Max hit the Road Sadly, I'm running Windows XP now and I doubt it'll run.

Day of the Tentacle (Maniac Mansion 2) was also pretty funny at times.

I thought The Secret of Monkey Island was pretty funny, lots of good British type humor, like when they tarred and feathered you:

Guybrush: "Ack, I've been tarred and feathered!!"

*long pause*

Guybrush: "................soooo........what happens now?"

Evil pirate: "hmmm I don't know....you see......we've never tarred and feathered someone before so we never thought about what to do after we've done it"

hehe, pretty much any lucas arts game like that are incredibly well written, including Maniac Mansion, Day of the tencacle, Grim Fandango. Also Typing of the Dead was strangely funny "ha..ha...ha...I ..am....goldman...."

A lot of the old Infocom games were hilarious. Planetfall comes to mind, not to mention the Douglas Adams games (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Bureaucracy).

Bad Fur day is really good. But Skullmonkeys I think is the funniest I've played. The cut scenes are great, just the can of beans scene alone was enough to put it over the top.

NARC for NES was pretty funny ... drugged out clowns trying to kill you & gunning down drug dealers & picking up drugs & money ...

Leisure Suit had it all though ... one of the funniest I ever remember.

While playing MGS2, I about feel off the chair when raiden slips on the bird poo. Those bastards dropped a few on me as well. Good thing most die a few scenes later.

Spicollidriver is now my hero! I figured I'd come in here and post about this game, figuring nobody had ever heard of it. Tis a silly game
