Awesome / The Simpsons Game

  • The premise: Video game characters learning that they live in a video game and can use super powers, and going on a wild adventure because of it.
  • The final level. To give you an idea, the final boss is playing DDR. Against God Himself. And then proceed to threaten Him by deleting his Oblivion save file.
  • A meta-example: aside from a handful of indie Deconstruction Games, this may be the only major video game in which the protagonists become self-aware and lament the misery of living under their present conditions, and entirely avoids You Bastard (even then most indie Deconstruction Games don't avoid this) in favor of Rage Against the Author. It is not the players' fault that they are trapped in this Crapsack World, but instead that of the game developers who constructed the negative scenarios that the players are often trying to resolve. This is a surprisingly fresh breath of air after Spec Ops: The Line and games with similar narratives, in which the players are condemned and the developers left blameless.
