Top 10 Things that Made Certain Video Games Undeniably the Oddballs of Their Series

The Top Ten

Being an entire E-rated RPG-length Mario game themed almost completely around a rather bizarre mixture of vore, endosomatophilia and inflation fetishism - Bowser's Inside Story
The art style that looked like it was ripped right out of Ren & Stimpy and then mixed with considerably more than a fair bit of Odin Sphere - Rayman Origins
The infamous (yet utterly brilliant) "three days" gimmick combined with its uncharacteristically (yet disturbingly legitimately) dark and depressing storyline - Legend Of Zelda: Majora's Mask
Being easily at least two or three, if not four or perhaps even five times weirder (in its main storyline, at least) than both of Parappa's games combined - Um Jammer Lammy
The music sounding as if a rather good chunk of it was on drugs (various types of them, at that) - Earthbound
FLUDD - Super Mario Sunshine
Adopting the Dark Souls style of gameplay as well as the survival/realism mechanics of Bethesda games - Legend Of Zelda: Breath Of The Wild
