** The story in ''VideoGame/SonicForces.'' General consensus is that it's damn near impossible to take anything that happens in the story seriously, between Sonic's cartoonish beatdown at the beginning, the total glossing over of 99% of Eggman's takeover with a few sentences of text on a black screen, a main villain who gives ''Shadow'' a run for his money in terms of comical edginess, and the inconsistent story tone that results in things like Sonic being ''tortured for 6 months offscreen and [[AngstWhatAngst showing no signs of it at all]]''. The resulting story is so absurdly inconsistent and ridiculous that it's ''utterly hilarious''.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil2'' and ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil3Nemesis'' have greatly improved acting over the first game (though that's really not saying much), but they land themselves under this trope in a different way. The actors aren't bad but have some very cheesy lines and are trying ''so damned hard'' to make them work that it's a pure jolt of NarmCharm every step of the way. Particularly hilarious is the obvious teenager trying ''way'' too hard to do a little girl voice for Sherry Birkin (Considering she was Wanda from ''WesternAnimation/TheMagicSchoolBus'', her regular voice would have sufficed just fine), and having (seriously) [[Anime/SailorMoon Tuxedo friggin' Mask]] faking a Spanish accent for Carlos Oliviera. "All the foxy ladies love his accent" indeed!

* DT Racer is a racing game. While it has good graphics, it falls under style-over-substance. The main problem is the physics. It is very hard to control your car, and if you boost, your car goes out of control in most situations. However, go on the track backwards and wreck into cars, and it becomes a hilarious, very entertaining game. See WebVideo/ClassicGameRoom talk about the game [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pT6a1adJh4s here.]]

* ''Exodus from the Earth'' is a PC FPS staring a secret agent sent to investigate a MegaCorp suspected of covering up the discovery of an habitable planet to promote a vaccine that allows humans to survive in any environement. While the gameplay is a typical mediocre ''Half-Life'' clone, the game has become a minor camp classic thanks to its attempts at an hard-boiled {{Noir}} narration [[http://i.imgur.com/7A9Qmm7.png undone]] by [[BlindIdiotTranslation a lamentable Russian to English translation]], dramatic moments similarly ruined by a terrible script and voice acting ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RTpHAmMPgBo Mike's death scene]] being a standout), [[CloudCuckooLander bizzare NPC dialogue]] ([[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QnMJ-27drIU Case in point]]) and frequent bugs. Youtuber [=AllShamNoWow=] has done a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jd-06IZ4TbA four-part video series]] looking at the game's many inept and funny moments.

** It gets better - the only audio is a five-second-long song that loops indefinitely and has the [[EarWorm annoying property of getting stuck in your head for hours on end]], and the [[ExcusePlot alleged "story"]] is hilariously stupid. You can watch [[GuruLarryAndWez Wez and Larry's]] take on it [[http://youtu.be/fBUCPdwxGRc?t=610 here]], as well as AVGN's take [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M_aXcH1zDEE here]].

* ''VideoGame/MetalWolfChaos''. The story centers around the [[AuthorityEqualsAsskicking President of the United States of America]], Michael Wilson, fending off a coup by the [[EvilChancellor Vice President]], [[NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast Richard Hawk]], in his [[HumongousMecha gigantic mecha]], Metal Wolf. The gameplay, mostly centering around [[StuffBlowingUp blowing up American landmarks]], is fun and genuinely good (as you'd expect of FromSoftware), which means the ridiculous plot and dialogue, containing mangled {{Engrish}} that is spoken by native English speakers, can be enjoyed by all. Oh yeah, there's also a fight sequence where the President [[LargeHam yells]] "SUCK ON MY [[RocketPunch MISSILE PUNCH!]]" and "[[ForGreatJustice EAT MY FLAME OF JUSTICE!]]" We'd vote for him.

* ''VideoGame/HomeImprovement'' on the SNES is a PlatformGame where you play as Tim Taylor, collecting power tools and other related things as you battle dinosaurs and such. It feels like Tim Taylor himself designed the game. ''It didn't even come with an instruction manual,'' merely saying, before the title, "[[HintsAreForLosers Real men don't need instructions]]."

** Both of Strata's fighting games, ''VideoGame/TimeKillers'' and ''VideoGame/{{BloodStorm}}'', just have to count. Both are attempts at creating a BloodierAndGorier rival to ''MortalKombat'', and both fall flat on their face because of horrible graphics, terrible sound, and piss-poor gameplay. And yet, this was the first fighting game to let you chop off people's limbs... [[JustAFleshWound and keep hacking it out.]] ''Time Killers'' would even let you cut off someone's head ''at any point in the match'' with just a single button press. ''[=BloodStorm=]'' was more of the same, but now you could cut off someone's ''lower body.'' If they still had some health left, they could still move around by sliding on their exposed entrails. It's just so incredibly stupid and immature it suddenly becomes hilariously awesome. Also in ''Blood Storm'', there's only one character in the entire game who isn't at best a NinetiesAntiHero, and everyone looks like they walked out of a Creator/RobLiefeld comic (the only thing missing is pouches) with names like Razor and Fallout. There's even a secret character named "Blood" who's a red PaletteSwap of another character, only his head is replaced by a blood geyser.

* ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tRht1kBYFNc Legion]]'' on the PCEngine CD has poor graphics and plain bad gameplay, but the inept, [[DullSurprise deadpan]], out-of-place narration (in English) at the beginning of each level is nothing short of hilarious.

* ''Battle Construction Vehicles'' is an unusual fighting game where two people [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin battle each other in construction vehicles.]] The controls are unresponsive, the vehicles move slowly, and basic attacks are a pain to pull off (in some vehicles, attacks sometimes hurt '''the attacker''' more); most of the fights consist of slowly ramming and scraping against the opponent (and randomly pulling off super moves) until someone wins. The ridiculous premise, awesome plot, and hilariously bad voice acting make up for the actual game's shortcomings. The plot is a ClicheStorm SeriousBusiness {{Shonen}} anime, except it all involves construction vehicle demolition derbies.
* ''VideoGame/TrioThePunch'' is regarded as the first ''kuso-ge''. The three characters are the most stereotyped heroes ever (a ninja, a brawler and a BarbarianHero, who are also {{Expies}} of some [[VideoGame/BadDudes other Data]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfKage East characters]]), each has his own theme which loops endlessly throughout ''the entire game'', Karnov is inexplicably a common enemy, clearing a stage nets a "WIN WIN" and a roulette where you can power-up or down with an old sensei declaring "LUCKY! CHA CHA CHA!", a sheep boss turns your into a sheep for the whole next stage... since it would take too much to list everything, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hBmDpEx5Dbc here's a review]] on this (clearly voluntary) crappy game.

However, partly because it's still an enjoyable yet frustrating game, partly because the main theme is [[AwesomeMusic pretty awesome]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kkIaReGceTk (with a catchy theme tune screaming "PEPSI MAAAAAAN!!!")]], partly because God only knows, some countries loved it. And no, there were no Pepsiman ads in America, oddly enough. Another reason is probably how ridiculously goofy Pepsiman take things on, and some death scenes can get amusing for poor Pepsiman...
