Strong Bad's favorite game?

posted by Jake on - last edited - Viewed by 1.6K users

Despite his amassed knowledge of all games, I'm sure there are a few Strong Bad hasn't heard of.

In this thread I'd love it if you guys named a few games which you think Strong Bad would be into if he knew about them, and (this is the important part) explain why. Present your case well!

I will start!

nanosaur.jpgNanosaur

Released for Macintosh (~MacOS 9 era) in 1998. In Nanosaur, you play a small dinosaur from a future, who is sent back in time to collect prehistoric dinosaur eggs to take with you, back to the future to save your dying race. You collect these eggs by fighting other, bigger dinosaurs. Also you have a jet pack. So, you're a jet pack dinosaur from the future who fights prehistoric dinosaurs by blasting them with laser beams, and then steals their eggs.

Bonus fact, according to Wikipedia: "A cheat in the game allows all of the weapons to be obtained by jumping off of a high surface or riding a flying creature."

And, as you can see, the graphics are amazing.


That's my candidate for Strong Bad's favorite game. Please best me in this battle with proposals of your own. (I have obvious holes in my proposal which allow it to be topped -- for instance Nanosaur's soundtrack includes no electric guitar, an obvious oversight.)

  • Yeah, but that stuff actually makes it awesome. Strong Bad prefers over the top awexome. Like dinosaurs with jetpacks.

  • Duke Nukem 3D, of course.

    Babes? Check.

    Robots? Check.

    Rock music? Check.

    Aliens? Check.

    Weaponry? Big check.

    Inflated ego from the main character? Check.

    Pop culture references? Che-he-heck.

    Also, jetpacks.

    I rest my case.

  • @Holyxion said: Oh, hey, I played Nanosaur. If you use the cheat you can shoot humongous bombs all over the place(I couldn't figure out how to use the jet pack unfortunately). But more on topic, Here's a list of games we know for sure he has.


    Wko would of guessed. Strong Bad had Sam & Max. And a game that is in 4-D. Amazing

  • Two Three words: Destroy All Humans!!
    For Wii, XBox, PS2, and I forget the rest.

    I don't see how Strong Bad could not enjoy a game where you can telepathicly throw a cow at a farmer and then suck his brain out.

    Now then, why it is awesome:

    1. You play as a wisecracking smart-aleck bad*** alien with a jetpack.
    2. You can asplode people's heads.
    3. Guns and weapons galore!
    4. You can spend your time randomly burninating the countryside aimlessly in your space machine.
    5. It never seems to end. Ever. Unless you have no life.
    6. It finally gives you a chance to kill every last moron on the planet.
    7. The main character looks like SB sans mask and gloves.
    8. Mind-blowing, revolutionary, state-of-the-art graphics.

    I rest my case. Rest nuttin', my case is in a six-month coma!

    wasn't there a newer version of the game that came free with g4 imacs or something??

  • I have Nanosaur! And yeah, there are a lot of weird cheats/glitches. It's a pretty hard game because it's not divided up into levels. It came with the orange iMac we got in 2001. Another game called Bugdom came on it too, which I like better.

    I can't believe I forgot about this game. He would love that game.

    I know. :D If I had his snailmail adress, I'd get 'im it for Decemberween.

    One glance at the box is all it takes to make it ooze of Strong Bad's style:

    That could be Stro Bro's long-lost cousin!

    DAH fits that checklist too!

    ...well, you have to kill all the babes, but still...

  • Well, I think Strong Bad may like Roguelikes...Not love them of course, they don't usually got chicks. But check out these screenshots of GOOD GRAPHICS...

    doomrl003.png
    This picture links to Doom RL. Why play regular Doom with those lame graphics when you can do a graphics upgrade to ASCII?

    This picture is a picture from the game Drawf Fortress, and the picture links to a Let's Play of an earlier version of Drawf Fortress. In this lovely picture, you can see the great drawf-wizard Sankis beat up the Elite Marksdwarf Kadol Lokumad...while on fire.

    And here's two images from the roguelike that I enjoy the most. Liberal Crime Squad. Alright so Marzipan might like it more than Strong Bad (since the goal of the game is to create a Liberal utopia, for example, stopping pollution, freeing bunnies, having gun control, and other Liberal stuff), maybe. But still...

    The game is a satire, but it is best to be very careful. I can't find an image at the moment, but you could also have people use the power of rock (guitars) to convert your enemies onto your side. And you can go on dates and seduce people to be Love Slaves. So maybe Strong Bad might like it.

    EDIT: Er, if anyone wants to play LCS, you could check out this forum where they discuss it as well (to gain tips). The Liberal Crime Squad wiki is a little outdated.
