Any of the Katamari games are pretty odd.

No, I'm pretty sure that's a spoof someone made up.

Horai High probably takes the cake for me.  It is definitely...odd.

The newer The Bard's Tale is probably a close second---but that game is weird in a very good way.

The Manhole is pretty strange, sort of a Myst for kids but very directionless and sadly very short as well.

Also Gekisha Boy.

Let's not forget that the most recognizable game in the history of consoles is about a New York-based plumber who suddenly finds himself in a magical kingdom of talking mushroom people being oppressed by a sentient dragon-ox-turtle and his army of flying turtles, evil mushrooms and fireproof basketball-sized beetles.

Games are messed up, man.

You mean Donkey Kong 3?

Weirdest game I ever played (at length,) so far is ROM CHECK FAIL!

For more weirdness you can try Cactus Arcade, which is a collection of Game Maker games by this cactus guy. I really liked the "Illegal Communication" one.

I know I probably shouldn't even acknowledge these exist, but I just randomly remembered all those...uh...not for kids Atari games from the early '80s.  Every.  Single.  One.

Now THAT was some weird stuff

Such a cool game.  I wouldn't call it particularly "weird", though.  Strange how it doesn't seem to have spawned many imitators.

Weirdest game?  Catherine:

http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/games/catherine/90444

You basically play a spineless, whining douchebag who is trying to juggle two girls but he's cursed by nightmares where people are turning to sheep and he has to climb a series of puzzle blocks in his underwear while a chapel bell relentlessly clangs in your ear.



It's not very good (though lots of online review sites give it glowing praise).  But man was it weird.

OK, I just saw this

I don't know of these, and I'm kind of morbidly interested. I mean, how Not-For-Kids could Atari games possibly be?
