It may seem as if video games are all about jumping, shooting, running around or making things explode but most have comedy at their core
Video games have always been funny. From the lumbering kidnap animation in Donkey Kong to the witty wordplay of the Uncharted series, developers have used every tool at their disposal to make us giggle while we shoot, jump, explore and accelerate. Sometimes the humour comes from the script, sometimes the mechanics, and sometimes it’s just the emergent joy of competing against friends. Whichever, we all remember games that have had us doubled over our controllers, helpless with laughter.
Here then, are the funniest games we’ve ever played. Please share your own rib-tickling reminiscences in the comments.
