Steam is a weird and wonderful place.
If you’re a PC gamer, you undoubtedly use Steam to buy and play your games, at least occasionally. And if you do, you’ll be aware of just how massive Steam’s library of available games is. So massive in fact, that there are thousands of hidden gems on there that just don’t get the light of day they deserve.
On the flipside however, there are thousands of, er, ‘interesting’ games that may or may not garner some kind of attention for one reason or another. We’ve scoured the… ‘dark side’ of Steam, shall we say, to find 10 of the weirdest and most downright ridiculous games we could get our hands on.
Some of these games probably aren’t for those of a more sensitive disposition, but if you’ve got a good sense of humour and enjoy a bit of tasteless crass in your game… well, you’re welcome.
10. Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator (UEBS)
Forget realistic war simulation games. Fighting humans, or tanks, or even mythological beasts is old news. Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator lets you wage war on whatever the hell you want.
Want to see an army of dining chairs wage all-out terror on 1,000 chickens? Ultimate Epic Battle Simulator lets you do that. Or how about a massive horde of zombies facing off against a 10,000-strong army of Santa Claus’? Yup, you can do that too.
UEBS is a sandbox-style game that lets you create your own battles, against whoever or whatever you see fit. You can have up to 100,000 units in any army (although don’t expect performance to be great with that much happening on screen- but the possibility is there!), making battles as epic and ridiculous as you see fit.
FMV cutscenes with purposefully over the top hammy acting? Gloriously entertaining gameplay that puts you in control of a cartoonised limo that can’t stop spinning in a clockwise direction? That’s Roundabout in a nutshell. Playing as Georgio, a female limousine driver, it’s up to you to drive around an open map, collecting passengers to deliver them to their destination.
Every time you pick up a new character, you’re treated to a new full motion video cutscene in glorious B-movie style. And as brilliantly ridiculous as they are, it’s the gameplay where Roundabout really shines. Controlling a spinning limo is actually massive amounts of fun, dodging obstacles along your way but scoring extra points when running over civilians. Oh yeah, Georgia is a badass driver. She doesn’t care about the blood splatter that follows around her spinning limo.
Released in 2014 on Steam, Roundabout‘s also found its way onto PS4 and Xbox One, so if you’re in the mood for some ridiculousness on console, this is the game for you.
