What are the strangest or most unusual XBOX 360 games you've seen? (in particular, I'm thinking of ones in the retail shelf packaging -- as opposed to non-packaged downloadable games).

 

e.g.) games with unusual interfaces, themes, genres, ...

 

What did you think of them?

 

Note: They don't have to be platform exclusive. If it exists on other systems, that's fine too.

Well it's an old post, I'm surprised it didn't get responses. 360 has some pretty strange games IMO.

 

I'll mention Catherine.

 

Very interesting game, I have the Love is Over Deluxe Edition which came in a pizza box!

You are in the movies .. for the Kinect.  Odd game.  It is a shame that the online functionality is dead.

I have that game. Very different and fun. Trying to recall the online functions of the game. Could you upload or share your movies at one time?

I'm not sure if anyone else would classify this as "strange"..but I certainly did the first time I played it on the 360:

 

Bioshock

 

Perhaps it's the content and the way things are presented, but the Splicers certainly qualify this game as "strange", in my opinion. And the way some scenes play out? Priceless. Scared the Bejesus out of me, too.

Spec Ops: The Lines starts off like your traditional military shooter... but then gets all Apocalypse Now/Jacob's Ladder with it's themes and subject matter.

I'm glad you mentioned that since I picked it up a while back. And though I like military shooters, the idea that it goes all surreal is definitely a motivator for me to hurry up and load that puppy. So far it's been sitting on a stack -- awaiting its turn.

I've been buying up a bunch of weird hidden gems on the Xbox 360 here of late, as they are dirt cheap and some are getting the backwards compatible treatment.

 

I just started to play Killer is Dead, which is another trippy Suda 51/Grasshopper hyper action adventure game and similar in gameplay and style to Killer 7 and No More Heroes.

https://www.youtube....h?v=zKRmZdBN-g0

 

I've also picked up the following games, but they are on the backlog list:

Catherine - Dating sim, puzzle/adventure game.

Operation Darkness - World War II turned based strategy game with zombies and vampires.

Lollipop Chainsaw - Trippy Suda 51/Grasshopper hyper action adventure game.

Onechanbara Bikini Samurai Squad - Hyper action adventure game with bikini clad samurai hotties.

Otomedius Excellent- 2D side scrolling Gradius style shooter with scantly clad women ridding on the backs of futuristic jet fighters.

Shadows of the Damned - Trippy Suda 51/Grasshopper hyper action adventure game.

 

Back when the Xbox 360 was current gen, I played and finished:

Clive Barker's Jericho - An FPS with a little of the occult, religion, S&M, sex and horror (typical Clive Barker!); set at an archaeological dig site in the middle east in the near future.  Excellent FPS gameplay and a trippy story.  One of my hidden gems.  The sniper rifle in this game is soooo satisfying. :-)

Rise of Nightmares - A Sega kinect game that is somewhat similar to The House of the Dead series, but with a little creepier and more serious tone.  I really enjoyed this game and it hearkens back to the Saturn, Dreamcast and early Xbox days of Sega, if you enjoyed that era of Sega.

Deadly Premonition is the weirdest but greatest game ever. It's the only game that I ever played that I cared about the characters.

The fact that it is also Twin Peaks in vidgame form adds to its appeal. It also has a very fascinating development history and worth checking out. I have played through the X360 version, the PS3 Director's Cut version, and the PS3 import version (Red Seeds Profile).

Your right, I can't. Now I'm scarred for life!icon_biggrinwink.gif

Although it wouldn't be so bad if the models weren't SO bad, its like the game markers have never seen a person dance/move before.

But maybe they move at 10 fps because people have follow along? If somebody took out ever other frame from the Napoleon Dynamite dance scene, it would look like that.

 

The worst part is he's not even solo dancing!
