Top Ten Oddball Video Games from Video Game Series

Video Games That May be considered The Black Sheep or the Oddball of their respective Game Series, the ones that are completely different from their Game Series.

The Top Ten

1 Metroid Prime Pinball
2 Super Mario Bros. 2

I love super Mario bros 2. I made it to world 3, but I saved the game when I died. Then I lost all of my progress. It's still a fun game though - beatles5

Because the original Super Mario Bros. 2 game was deemed to difficult for American Gamers the Japanese took an existing game Doki Doki Panic and replaced the main characters with Mario characters. - egnomac

3 Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

This game gets way too much hate in my opinion. While, yes, the dungeon top-down was great in the original, it technically wasn't set in stone what Zelda was. Zelda II is one of my 5 favorite Zelda titles.

The only Zelda game that featured RPG elements by defeating enemies you could boost your attack, magic or Life and also the fight sequences were viewed from the side - egnomac

4 Conker's Bad Fur Day
5 Donkey Kong 3

The game replaces Mario with new character Stanley and instead of jumping and climbing you shoot Donkey Kong with a bug spray until he reaches the top. - egnomac

6 Mario Kart Double Dash

This was the only Mario Kart game that ever had the two player kart system. - egnomac

One of the greatest Mario Kart games ever! Let's make an HD version of it, and call it Mario Kart:Double Dash HD. If Nintendo could make an HD version of Wind Waker, they could do an HD version of this game, too.

7 UmJammer Lammy

Considering WHAT game series it's considered the oddball of by a landslide, this one should definitely be at least on the top 10. AT LEAST on the top 10 - xandermartin98

8 Sonic Labyrinth
9 Mario Teaches Typing V 1 Comment
10 Mega Man Soccer

The most baffling Mega Man spin-off ever - PerfectImpulseX

The Contenders

11 Cho Aniki: Kyukkyoko Otoko No Gyakushuu

I cannot read this list item's name lol - BlueTopazIceVanilla

12 Super Mario Sunshine

You attack zombies by typing words rather than a gun. - egnomac

14 Halo 4

Microsoft, could you stop making Halo? You need to go back to your Microsoft Kids legacy and do another Creative Writer software program which had Banjo (from the Xbox 360 decades) replacing McZee because the brown grumpy bear character is taking over Imaginopolis, assisting the children whose names are Max, Melanie and Maggie. - playstationfan66

15 Star Fox Adventure
16 Tomb Raider the Angel of Darkness
17 Earthbound (Mother 2)

Only available for Super Nintendo. - playstationfan66

18 Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe
19 Tetris with Cardcaptor Sakura: Eternal Heart

Who's idea was it to slap Cardcaptor Sakura characters into Tetris? Apparently the folks at Arika did. - PerfectImpulseX

20 Paper Mario Sticker Star
