Seaman is a strange little game which came out for the Sega Dreamcast in 1998.
The Seaman is a fish with a man's face, who you communicate with via microphone.
As you learn about the Seaman species, you help him evolve from little more than a parasite to a full blown frogman, with your virtual pet slinging insults and random trivia at you the entire time.
Some people found this virtual pet game to be quite delightful, and quirky enough to keep playing, but most gamers found the lack of action and in-game guidance to be too much to handle.
To replace the cosmos you have find and roll up various objects – trash, animals and even people – to form stars and planets that are then launched into space in order to impress your disapproving father.
Katamari Damacy games have been released on the Playstation 2, Sony PSP, Xbox 360, PS3, and portable platforms like i OS and Android.
Catherine is different, because it is a puzzle-platformer game and offers compelling gameplay.
The title is a play on the word “hateful”, and on the name of the game's creator, Hato Moa. Pigeo Nation's Institute, a posh school for pigeons, you flirt with fair feathered friends, interact with fellow classmates and solve a mystery all while being pursued by tiny bird brained male pigeons who want to be your boyfriend.
There is not much gameplay in School Days – you just make dialog choices and other plot decisions with little control over the character.
The game has multiple endings, including a positive one, referred to as the Harem Ending, where you hook up often with all the girls, and multiple bad endings full of murder, rape and suicide.
Catherine was released for the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 consoles in 2011, and features over twenty hours of gameplay, so if you're not currently in a relationship Catherine might be the girl for you!
School Days is a seemingly innocent and typical looking Utomo dating game on the surface, but as you play through the game trying to get girls from your school to like you, things take a very strange turn.
Strange video games have existed since the dawn of gaming, but as they evolved from crude, pixelated graphics to slick realism, the Japanese have perfected the art of of the bizarre.
