Windows 7: What is the STRANGEST game you've ever played?

I just looked at some screenshots, and it does look unusual. Amazing when you talk to people how you find out about all these games you never heard of!
The look wasn't the worst of it. The sounds, especially with headphones just creep the hell out of you. Honestly, I wouldn't recommend playing those levels if it's nighttime and you're by yourself unless you're doing it without audio. I would recommend doing it in the daytime with others around the house (or whatever surrounding you're in) if you want to use audio.

Yeah, Gold was the expansion to Thief: The Dark Project. I would say that to me, it's still one of the best games I've ever played and even to date, apart from the sequels, I've never really found as interesting a game experience as that series of games were.

In way, I guess I'm kind of an oddball because I much prefer the single player experience and don't really care for the multiplayer. If a game has good multiplayer but no single player or the single player really sucks, I will usually not play it but if the single player experience defines the game, then I will play it.

I dislike when developers cram a turd of a multiplayer into a game just for the sake of having it. BioShock was a great game, no multi and it didn't suffer. Bio2 whilst not as good was still amazing, was there any need for the crap multiplayer?... I don't think so.

I've noticed that trend for the last few years. Instead of focusing on an aspect of the game and making it rock, they'll make two mediocre parts or one really good and one really crappy.

Speaking of weird games, another weird game was MDK 2. It was certainly something that you just don't expect out of game.

In 1990 I went to visit my brother in San Jose, California and came to learn my first Mac computer (IBM or Clones is all I had used or seen). It had a 9 or 10" screen and used windows like icons (WOW!!!... never seen those before).

Well, he had a game that it was called "Dejavu" or something like that and you needed to find clues to go to the next step. I vaguely remember that you started on a bathroom, blood all over yourself, you look at the mirror and start to ask yourself questions until you are able to get out of the bathroom, etc, etc. So yeah, it was about finding clues to continue the game.

The game was a loaner or came with the Mac but he had no book anymore and I was never able to find what the plot of the game was really about. I also remember that I was never able to finish the game or even find it for PC for that matter... weirdest thing that is still lingering in my head.

I keep forgetting this is 2010 and technology is vast and extremely advanced

LOL ... I forgot about that one (I played the shareware demo). It definitely deserves an honorable mention. If they released an updated version today, I'd probably pick it up.
