Our friends ZoominGames on YouTube, have shared this awesome video of the TOP 5 WEIRDEST ARCADE GAMES EVER!
Arcade games should provide a unique experience, one that you can’t get anywhere else. The arcade machines in this video certainly deliver in that aspect. Here is our top 5 weirdest arcade games ever and to no one’s surprise most of these can be found in Japan.
5. Densha de Go!
Densha de Go! or “Let’s Go By Train!” is actually a relatively normal game. You take the role of a train driver driving actual train routes in Japan while following a very strict schedule. The game is extremely difficult to play. You have to stop within 30 centimeters of the prescribed point and you can’t be more than half a second late. The Japanese don’t mess around when it comes to public transport!
4. Super Table Flip
Who didn’t at one point in their life want to flip a table in anger? That’s the premise of Super Table Flip. You play an angry father who has just received some bad news and totally loses his shit at the dinner table. You need to smash your hands as hard as you can on a real table that’s part of the arcade cabinet. The harder you hit it the more your on-screen family trembles in fear. Arrrrrrg!
3. Amusement Washing Machine
Nobody likes doing laundry but what if you turned washing your clothes into fun mini-games? That’s what inventor Lee Wei Chen did when he came up with the Amusement Washing Machine. You play all sorts of mini-games that sync with the washing machine. The washing machine is active as long as you’re alive in the game so you better not die if you want clean clothes!
2. Urinal Arcade Games
The Exhibit Bar in London has very a unique arcade game you can play in the men’s restroom on a mounted display above the urinal. The game isn’t played with your hands but rather with your real life joystick. In the skiing mini-game you accelerate by increasing your stream strength and turn by aiming left or right. Just be sure to stay within the target area or you run the risk of pissing off your neighbour.
1. Boong-Ga Boong-Ga
Boong-Ga Boong-Ga also known as Spank ’em is the most bizarre arcade game we’ve ever seen. The arcade cabinet comes with a peripheral in the shape of a butt which you need to spank. The characters you can spank range from mother in law to child molester. Besides spanking you can also perform a kancho on your victim which is a Japanese prank that involves sticking your fingers up someone’s rear end. When you are finally done punishing the plastic ass the machine prints out a card that explains your sexual behaviour … because why the hell not.
