Welcome to ask-a-blog, where I ask you! The reader! To answer a question posed in the blog. Today's questions comes from a bout of playing Katamari Damacy: What is the most trippy game you have ever played? Make sure to tell us what console the game is on, as well as what makes it so trip inducing. Is it the gameplay, music, visuals, or something else? Tell us all about it!

For me, the award for the trippiest game goes easily to Katamari Damacy on the PS2, pictured on the right. If you have played this game, you know what I am talking about. if you haven't, here's a little summary. You are the son of the King of All Cosmos. The king, your father, has accidentally made all of the stars go away, so he commissions you to roll "Katamari", and help bring the stars back. The Katamari is formed by rolling a ball into things that are smaller than it. This makes the smaller things stick to it. You can pick up anything. ANYTHING. People, cars, buildings, islands, towns, boats. The possibilities are endless. The game is quite short, but it has a high replay value. It is also highly trip inducing, and the music is even weirder. Man is that game odd. I recomend it to anyone wishing to have lots of fun playing a quirky type of game.

So, what do you feel the trippiest game is? Be it a shoot em up, a puzzle game, or a platformer, we want to hear about it! Let's see those comments! Cheesy

Man, I love this game.  I also think that this is one of the trippiest games ever.

BTW, not to nitpick, but you spelled "recommend" wrong Tongue
 
@blcklblskt: Huh, odd. Firefox didn't catch that one. Well, don't I look like an idiot now? Tongue
 
I'd say either Noby Noby Boy or Rez.
 
I'd have to agree with both Rez and Katamari games. But I gotta put a vote in for Eternal Darkness.
 
Cho Aniki for Wii Virtual Console comes to mind.
 
Katamari is it for me.

The intro video is fantastically strange Smiley
 
Digital dreamware for the 3DO still tripps me out. But its not rally a game more like a title. But its still good.
 
Bit.Trip.Beat

I swear that game made me trip so much I couldn't see straight!
 
Maybe it's not the game that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy.
Man, I should have just said, World of Goo.
 
got a couple off the top of my head.
Knuckles Chaotix-32x (epilectic, colors trippy)
Earthworm Jim 3d-N64 (just plain stoner trippy [when i used to do that stuff] sorta like monty python
Eternal Darkness & Fatal Frame 2-GC & PS2 (wow to this day just friggin wow)
 
Metal Gear Solid 2 is probably the weirdest for me...I honestly thought I needed to turn the game off...like I tripped some nasty, extended game over screen. It didn't help that it was about 2 in the morning when I hit that part...but still...very trippy.
 
@BadKarm:

I agree, Eternal Darkness messes with your head so much. Awesome game as well.
 
For me I guess it would have to be The Path available on Mac & PC.
For only $10 I would recommended it for anyone after something completely different and twisted.

Mario.

I mean what the fuck?
 
@The Metamorphosing Leon:

Don't see what your talking about... An italian plumber in a world of mushrooms, coins and dinosaurs with turtle shells? Nothing about that strikes me as not kosher.
 
Bad Mojo. Adventure game where you're a roach that was once human. Doesn't get much odder.
 
Super Mario Bros. 2. That game always makes me scratch my head.


Are you ever gonna do the character battle you set up before or is that scrapped now?
 
Far and beyond Noby Noby Boy. Holy hell, that game is out there.
 
Probably Beautiful Katamari, although the Shin Megami Tensei series can be a bit weird at times as well. I also recently picked up God Hand for the PS2, and I've heard that game is out there as well, I mean seriously, you can bend your opponents over your knee and give them a spanking that can throw them into orbit. That sounds pretty crazy to me!
 
@Boshamp:

I also was like "WTF" just happened.
 
The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening, I can't believe all that work just to learn it was a dream!!
 
Katamari is crazy alright. Honourable mention to 'Disgaea'. Stack penguins on top of each other and then they do aerial combat moves on the enemy. Bizarre. PRINNY!!!!!!
 
Rainbow Islands. If only because the only time I've ever played it I was stoned out of my mind. Strange experience.
 
Rez was pretty trippy, I thought.
