1JasmineDragonSun 16th Dec 2018 We've heard the top ten lists for most played and favorite Switch games. How about your weirdest, most offbeat and unusual experiences on Switch? No specific number and not necessarily your favorite games. The runner-up for my personal strangest game is also one of my favorites: Darkest Dungeon (Ancestral Edition). It's a very dark but riotously funny turn-based roguelite set in a thinly disguised Cthulhu Mythos. Your "heroes", for lack of a better word, become stressed and then lose their sanity as they adventure, acquiring multiple negative quirks until they are inevitably eaten by some Elder Thing and you have to recruit new adventurers. Healing and stress negation can be paid for in the church, sanitarium, tavern and brothel, but many of the character quirks have them banned from certain establishments for unsavory reasons. Exquisitely narrated and drawn in a charming, almost woodcut style, Darkest Dungeon sucked me in for almost 50 hours, and I plan to go back to it soon. But gamers who are not into very dark humor, turn-based games or roguelike/lite games will not like it. Darkest Dungeon is, however, not nearly as strange a game as Gal Metal. A game I heard about on NL almost a year ago and knew I had to try it ASAP, Gal Metal is a rhythm game that is also a social management game where you play a mysteriously gender-swapped Tokyo teen tasked with defeating an alien invasion by drumming in a metal band. The songs you play are short metal versions of classical music pieces which, honestly, I'm not recognizing so far, but they are fantastic fun. I'm less enthusiastic about Gal Metal's controls, though. I was excited to have a game that used the Joy-Cons' gyros to simulate drumming, but after about five hours of play I haven't clicked with the controls yet, and I'm taking a break from Gal Metal right now. Definitely an interesting game and by far the most offbeat (cough) game I own for the Switch. Not necessarily my favorite game, but I don't regret getting it. How about you people?
