Press buttons in a predetermined order and make sure your character is standing juuuuuuust right to let you win. The inputs are infuriating online because you can't move your stick and buttons with the lang, and when you win, the other guy ragequits and you get nothing.

Play as a lord/avatar/both in a realm of many characters to ship and weapons that break really easily. As you fight against the forces of evil and some dragons or something. Watch as your shipped character's kids come from the future/ alternant dimensions. Also almost every main character's hear in the games are blue. Get ready to fight for your friends as you constantly restart the levels so that they don't die, over and over again.

Did I menshin that you can turn into a killer bunny rabbit/fox/dragon/etc.. (depends on game).

You endlessly walk around a post-apocalyptic world with some teenage girl (who looks like a famous actress who doesn't star in this game) and have multiple conversations with her while she simultaneously gets in the way during an encounter with enemies, essentially screwing up your stealth kills by blocking your path when you try to hide from enemies before they see you.

It's based of some television show where people play children's card games against a flashing background that gives Japanese kids seizures.

A game so unplayably difficult that they had to re-release it, then added on-disc DLC so they could charge you again for it. Likely to cause carpal tunnel.

You fall down a hole and hippie-hug a bunch of enemies until you get to go home. Or, alternatively, you can kill everything and have your butt handed to you by the weakest enemy in the game at the end.

So the entire game is this one super annoying escort mission where you have to keep this really pale chick from being dragged to hell, which happens whenever you leave her alone. Not only that, your best weapon to protect this super needy girl is the equivalent of a stick, despite the fact that the character you're playing as has horns or some crap, so could probably just headbutt the bastards doing the dragging.

Not my favourite game from these guys, but somebody has already done that one.

Right you are, Rich.

This is fun so I'll do another, I think.

So the game starts and you're this girl who's just looking at a body, her emotions might have crashed though because she doesn't seem to respond to the dead man right in front of her, she just takes the bloody blade from him like its some kind of RPG and moves on. The combat is some weird-ass fusion of turn-based strategy and action combat that thinks that a person can't have enough memory to queue up more than 3 or 4 actions, although since the main character is mute, she might just be mentally handicapped enough only to remember that much, maybe that's why there's someone who's constantly reminding her what to do and acting as a narrator/giver of exposition at the same time. The in-game lore is obnoxious to access as the game forces you to use the people you collect in every possible attack slot in order to process their information enough to read. I think the game designer's were just spreading a message about how colours are terrible, since everything's completely white by the end of the game anyway.

I love this one. Way better than their first game if you ask me.

A game series named after something you wouldn't want to get on your clean shirt.
The whole point is to get a lesser time than other people as you go through the stage while someone gives you directions. Unfortunately if you go too fast you'll most likely crash and burn.

So this PC game gives you a top-down look and it's supposed to be about a galactic war between humans, the vaguely humanlike things with no mouths and glowing eyes, and some generic insectoids. It's SUPPOSED to be about war but most of the game you find yourself doing city building instead.

Similar PC game, a hypothetical world war that happens because some crazy mad scientist screws around with time travel and kills Hitler before he comes into power. Once again SUPPOSED to be about war but city building happens.

Another similar PC game, my childhood is filled with these, a futuristic war about 2 robotic armies that apparently have fought for so long they don't don't even know why they're fighting anymore other than they hate each other.

So apparently the world went to s**t because some giant orb thingy decided to stay and now it's enemies have all come after it. The player has apparently been dead for hundreds of years and is brought back to life by a lightbulb made by this giant orb. Fun times.

Some whiney blonde kid poses as a feared bounty hunter and gets recruited by a bunch of space pirates off his sandy hellhole homeworld. This game's dialogue gets super cheesy.

There's a guy with long black hair, he runs into a princess with short pink hair while chasing down some thief. Stupid s**t happens. There's a dog who fights with a knife in his mouth, a kid using a hammer that's bigger than he is, a cranky lolita, a shifty old man in a duster, and a hot scantily-clad elf chick.

Wait, are you talking about the DMC Trilogy HD release? It has on-disc DLC?
Devil May Cry 3 was originally released as Devil May Cry 3: Dante's Awakening. The North American release was more difficult than the Japanese release and received some criticism for it. Devil May Cry 3: Special Edition was released, which added extra difficulties and balanced existing ones, but allowed for Vergil to be playable and added the Bloody Palace game mode. So that's additional content that was on the disc. Which could loosely be defined as on-disc DLC.

FF7? In that case you forgot that the boss is also a whiney kid with mother-complex who also looks like some japanese mutated abomination during his later boss fight.

So in this game you try taking a vacation from work after years of no off days with your girlfriend and some old dude only to be stopped by the local police and taken to prison once you arrive. Now you are put on trial for commenting a crime to the island that you never did, but the only lead they had was a picture that looks like you, so now you are court ordered to clean up the entire island if you want to go back home. Also your girlfriend gets kidnapped by the impersonator.

Holy shit, I think I know this one. I thought for a second that it sounds pretty strange, but it's Tales of Monkey Island, isn't it? This thing is more difficult than it looks. Most comments I've seen seem to be taking the "obscure way of explaining", rather than "making a game sound crap".

Killer Beast actually did a really good job guessing mine, I'm not surprised you don't know the last 2. They're obscure JRPGs, a bit off the beaten path. $Bison guessed one of the remaining ones correctly. Props to Avering, it was a good guess and that is one of my favorites.

Here's another couple for everyone to figure out.

Cryogenically frozen player wakes up to have his wife killed and son kidnapped by some ugly bald f*cker working for an evil science organization in a post-apocolyptic Boston set 200 years after a nuclear disaster.

A group of animal pilots with a stupid frog that needs saving every five minutes and a rabbit that keeps telling you to do an aileron roll but gets the name of the maneuver wrong every time.

F*cking frog spits colored balls and tries to keep them away from the skull mark.

I don't like f*cking zombies on my godd*** lawn!

Moody silver-haired idiot runs around in a virtual world trying to save some girl who he has a crush on and trying to get revenge on the jackass who put her in a coma.

World war with ancient civilizations. Gods and goddesses involved. Three different sides hosting three major gods for each. With the expansion pack adding one more side complete with it's own gods and goddesses. More city building, hooray.

Giant mech-themed button mashing a la Dynasty Warriors-style.
