Five Strange Video Games

"5 just-plain-weird video games"
Tech, CNN (September 7, 2010)

"From turning random household objects into giant balls to stuffing princesses full of cake until they're morbidly obese, the video game industry has no shortage of strange ideas.

"It's a feat of absurdity compounded almost daily, thanks to the efforts of iPhone, Android and downloadable-software creators who crank out bizarre titles celebrating everything from angry birds to garishly colored cartoon blobs.

"Unlike app makers, designers of titles sold through GameStop and Wal-Mart often have to constrain their creativity because their amusements have to appeal to wider audiences.

"But this logic doesn't apply to the following retail games, each of which are bound to leave you wondering just who'd dream up -- let alone buy -- such oddball concepts...."

I don't know about that. I see nothing odd about playing a game that pits me against chickens on roller skates ("Chicken Blaster"). It sounds like fun.

Oh, wait: I'm the guy who named his blog "Apathetic Lemming of the North," and calls himself "the Lemming." In the third person.

Never mind.
