Top 10 Incredibly Weird Video Games that Take Place in Deceptively Normal or Everyday-Looking Settings

The Top Ten

1 Plumbers Don't Wear Ties Plumbers Don't Wear Ties Product Image

Officially the Tommy Wiseau "Room" of video games; saying that is being EXTREMELY generous - xandermartin98

2 Earthbound Earthbound Product Image

Be warned, children; the freakishly trippy postmodernism horrors you are going to see all throughout this game are definitely not for the faint or heart - xandermartin98

3 Goat Simulator Goat Simulator Product Image

G-Mod in general, actually - xandermartin98

4 South Park: The Stick of Truth South Park: The Stick of Truth Product Image

Just like the show itself, naturally - xandermartin98

5 Danganronpa Danganronpa: The Animation is a 2013 anime television series based on Spike Chunsoft's murder mystery video game, Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc.

When not counting the fact that the actual BACKGROUND setting of the original pre-V3 saga was a post-apocalyptic hellscape with literally all kinds of demented mechanical serial-killer teddy bears running around all over the place, yes - xandermartin98

6 Portal Portal Product Image

Looks are decieving, when GLaDOS is involved - xandermartin98

7 Undertale

Background Environments: Pitifully cliched and often-irritatingly linear archetypes of literally ages-old video game level tropes; first you have the ancient ruins, then the snowy forest, then the water cave (that looks UNCANNILY similar to Satorl Marsh from Xenoblade Chronicles, might I add), then the big dramatic lava level leading up to the finale, and then finally a big grey house, followed by the science-fiction equivalent to a haunted one, then finally the grey one again

Actual Game: One of the most wonderfully bizarre, uniquely inventive/atmospheric and incredibly memorable experiences I've had with a game in literally forever - xandermartin98

8 UmJammer Lammy UmJammer Lammy Product Image

When you take away literally ALL of the characters FROM its setting, yes (have I not already mentioned enough times that one of them is a giant rainbow-vomiting caterpillar with bewbs) - xandermartin98

9 Conker's Bad Fur Day Conker's Bad Fur Day Product Image

Actually more disturbing than Happy Tree Friends at times - xandermartin98

10 PaRappa the Rapper 2 PaRappa the Rapper 2 Product Image

Same here as with UJL, except that this time we have a villain whose ultimate goal is to literally transform the entire planet Earth into ramen noodles - xandermartin98

The Contenders

11 Postal 2 Postal 2 Product Image

The town of Paradise, Arizona is home to the most outlandish events in gaming. A former child star leading a gang, the appropriately named Krotchy being a physical character that wields a rocket launcher upon fighting him, rednecks kidnapping people in the cemetery and making them wear Gimp Suits, and can have so much violence that an Apocalypse will start, with every civilian killing each other and cats raining down from the sky. Those were all the words in the correct order, I assure you; that's just the main five days as well, where your objective is to do nothing more than complete chores for a nagging wife. It gets even more ridiculous with the weekend and the DLC. Either way, prepare for the lavish amounts of gore that awaits those who play this game. - nerffan8000
