Worst/Most Bizarre game idea
After reading the review of the Street Cleaning simulator, and finding out that there is also a Garbage Truck Simulator. I want to ask what other strange ideas have been turn into a game, something that makes you exclaim 'why would someone do a game about that'.

I guess about 90% of all Japanese games qualify. Just remember that Les Miserables fighting game I posted about a couple of months ago.
Also, Chulip, a game about, err, kissing things. It defies description, really.
And before I forget it: the relatively recent Hyper Dimension Game Neptune. I'll just quote joystiq.com on this one:
Hyper Dimension Game Neptune, a new PS3 RPG revealed in Famitsu magazine, puts players in the role of a personified video game console in the fight against piracy. Neptune is a fictional video game console turned into a girl, on a quest to defeat the "Goddess Majicon" -- "Majicon" being the Japanese term for DS flash carts like the R4.

if only Hyper Demension Neptune made use of the idea behind it, but apparently its just a straight dungeon crawl with a few throwaway gags in there.
Octodad would come very close but the strangest thing I have seen in recent years is a game called Muscle March, which is, ahem...
yeah. thats a thing that someone made.

I have Chulip. That game is deceptively difficult. It is somewhat of a rogue-like, because if you die you have to restart the entire game; you die from the most random shit too (literally, while searching dumpsters you will randomly find pieces of shit that will do damage to you), which is why I have never beaten it.
As far as weird games go, LSD: Dream Simulator on the PSX. It has no real objectives to speak of, you just wander around various dreamscapes, teleporting to different ones by touching certain objects. The more time you spend in the game the weird it gets, and you begin to encounter monsters and such.

Oh God, a long kiss with a blue reptile under the stars while fireworks light the sky. I guess some will say that all their friday evenings are like that

Minotaur China Shop must be a contender for bizarre ideas.
I think that sort of concentrated weird counts ahead of "OMG LOOK AT ALL THIS CRAZY WE'VE PUT IN!"A brave heart and a courteous tongue. They shall carry thee far through the jungle, manling.

Taking the Max Payne franchise and making it into a fat, old mercenary shooting mans in the colourful and sunny Brazil.

That octodad game. Thats a bizzare idea right there. Acid trip bizzare.

I can't see "Loving father. Caring husband. Secret octopus." as a description/tagline for a game being topped.A brave heart and a courteous tongue. They shall carry thee far through the jungle, manling.
