What games have the best sense of humor?

Recommended Posts

Humor in a lot of video games falls flat for me, and some video games have almost no sense of humor at all.  In fact, for me, nothing has really equaled the odd sense of humor featured in the Zork games (old text-based PC games with a few graphical games that followed, for those who weren't around back in the dark ages). 

What games do you think have the best sense of humor?

Easily Deadly Premonition. It essentially embraces its B-movie flavour/tone and makes it its own. The writing is incredible. Suffice to say, it’s also one of my favourite games ever.

The Portal series really tickled me to be fair, I never thought I'd actually like the game and actually stayed away from it but when I did, I just loved it. Probably because Stephen Merchant was in Portal 2 and I'm a big fan but it just struck a chord really. GTA games always crack me up too!

I've said it before, I'll say it again and @Alyxx will agree.

The Curse of Monkey Island.

Yeah I love the humor in Curse. Trumps the previous games in my opinion.

Other games I love the humor in:

Borderlands 2
Battleborn
Saints Row 3
Saints Row 4
Rad Rodgers

Escape From Monkey Island had it's moments - but it definitely is a step back.

"Look at the size of her...Ponytail."

The first two, were certainly nowhere close to as well done as Curse though. I mean, Curse has Murray - and Murray is golden.

So true. And yeah while I enjoy all of the games, Curse will always be my favourite in terms of writing.
