* ''VideoGame/{{Prototype}}'' has some pretty noticeable moments of bizarre physics, such as leaping forward and suddenly doing a flying kick/cannonball at a target in the opposite direction, thrown objects like cars that have even but a very limited degree of homing capability, having an extreme disparity in damage potential between a simple fall and a bullet-dive drop both from say seven stories high, running horizontally on the CONVEX side of a vertical plane, the loooooong hang time of doing a max air combo... the list goes on. But it's fun. Especially the [[AwesomeYetPractical cannonball]].

* ''BackyardSports''. A baseball/soccer/football/whatever game with zany powerups, not to mention that you can play as a kid in a wheelchair, kids who wear glasses while playing, and a '''robot'''. How fun is ''that''?

* ''{{Freelancer}}''. Just ignore the grossly warped scale (entire planets only a few times bigger than a little starfighter!), enjoy the exquisite artwork and the {{Old School Dogfight}}ing.

Added DiffLines:

* Many elements in the ''VideoGame/AceCombat'' series operate on this trope. Why do pilots and squadrons change their aircraft regularly instead of being assigned a particular plane? Why are experimental planes that usually exist in the single digits in real life commonplace in the games? How do planes manage to carry upwards of 70 missiles and twenty bombs? Because all those elements are what make the games fun.
** This is especially noticeable in ''VideoGame/AceCombatAssaultHorizon'', however. Unlike most games in the series which take place in a ConstructedWorld with more flexible rules, Assault Horizon takes place in the real world. Despite this, it's still possible to use planes such as the Vietnam Era F-4E Phantom, the fictional CFA-44 Nosferatu, various non-American planes such as the Eurofighter Typhoon or Su-33 Flanker, the retired F-117 Nighthawk, the experimental and rejected YF-23 Black Widow, and even the Russian Su-47, which was not made for combat and of which there is only one in existence. These elements are as equally outrageous as they are iconic to the series.

** ''{{Beatmania}}'' and ''Beatmania IIDX'', despite their descriptions, are nothing like real DJ'ing. But who gives a crap? And then there's ''Pop'n Music'', which doesn't even simulate an instrument at all.

* WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic: Pinkie Pie. Almost everything she does is motivated by a desire to make her friends smile. When she isn't amusing her friends, [[ItAmusedMe she's amusing herself]].[[note]]Sometimes, as in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS4E14FilliVanilli "Filli Vanilli"]], amusing herself has unfortunate consequences.[[/note]]

* WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic: These ponies don't look anything like real horses. How are they able to shoot rainbow lasers made of friendship? Why do they release their most notorious world-threatening arch-enemy from his stone prison to reform him? Why is the Ponyville town mayor named "Mayor Mare"? Was she actually born to be a mayor? We don't know, but it sure is fun.

* This very wiki. Why do we have stuff like SugarWiki, DarthWiki, JustForFun/TropeTan, the TropePantheons, or MadeOfWin? Why are our articles so casually-written in comparison to ThatOtherWiki? Hell, why dedicate an entire site to tropes some people don't even notice in the first place? Because it's '''''fun''''', dammit!
