A Video Comparing Five Comedy Games and How They Accomplish Humor

Comedy games both are and aren’t a subgenre of their own— mechanically, they come from every gameplay genre on the map. RPGs, shooters, puzzle platformers, open-world games, 3rd-person Goat simulations, there’s nothing that structurally unifies them. Except they all aim to make the player laugh. This video goes deep into five very different games— South Park: The Stick of Truth, Brutal Legend, Far Cry: Blood Dragon, Portal 2, and Goat Simulator— with a particular focus on how they use humor to complement and contextualize and create the gameplay. NSFW in parts, mostly thanks to footage from Stick of Truth, and spoilers throughout.
