Gaming exists purely and explicitly for fun, but the majority of games are surprisingly serious. Invaders, oppressors, maniacs, evil spirits, terrorists... there are a lot of dark things out there.
So it’s no surprise that the majority of mods are pretty serious in intent as well. Some of them are stunning; a lot are the result of too much Buffy and The Matrix. Happily, however, among all the trenchcoat-posturing, there lies glittering the occasional hilarious freak.
Thankfully, the things our community creates are sometimes wildly entertaining on purpose, rather than the result of a serious irony deficiency. The mods below are all the results of deliberately silly intentions, a heartwarming lack of seriousness and a good dose of deranged inspiration.
Monkeys of Doom 3
You may not remember them from Doom 3, but only because they weren’t there. Monkeys is more an exercise in cartoon style than a game, but modder Herr W (a) developed it from designs he can’t remember doing (“Most likely it was drawn in a pub”), and (b) has included “The nameless stranger, Bob.” Genius. His stylistic exercise has two rules, by the way: have as few lines as possible, and let them run parallel as often as possible.
