Top 5 Embarrassing Games to Play in Front of People

Leah

4,517 views

Games do an excellent job at telling stories and making us laugh or cry and making us happy or sad. However, sometimes video games aren“t always great to play in front of others. While it may be awesome to play something like a Zelda or Mario game in front of your family (I know my own dad enjoys watching my siblings and I play those two series) and have them enjoy it just as much as a movie, games like the ones I“ll be discussing here may not be.

 

Whether it“s something extremely sexual or just plain awkward, you might want to think twice before letting grandpa watch you play any of these games. Though perhaps you're masochistic and would enjoy the embarrassment. Nonetheless, read on and find out exactly what will get your face redder than a tomato.

Nintendogs

 

While the Nintendogs series may not be something that suits the tastes of many gamers out there, I“ve still found the games highly enjoyable. Plus, let“s face it: who can resist such adorable puppies and kitties? It“s not as difficult to clean up after them or give them baths, either. There is something that these little critters possess that is just as infuriating as their real-life counterparts, however… and that“s the inability to understand commands 100% of the time.

 

To get to the point, what“s embarrassing about this game is that your family and friends are going to start thinking you“ve lost a couple of your marbles when they start hearing you shout “PUMPKIN, SIT DOWN!†over and over since your darling puppy can“t seem to differentiate between that and rolling over.

Final Fantasy X

 

Final Fantasy X is one of the best games I“ve ever played. It features incredibly beautiful music, environments, characters, and a great story. However, like any other game, it can have its bad moments. One of which is the infamous laughing scene between the main characters, Tidus and Yuna. While the laughing is meant to be forced and not serious, those around you watching probably don“t know that and you“ll soon find yourself slinking down into your chair until the cutscene is over.

No More Heroes

 

Let me tell you something. If I had known what I was getting into that Christmas day when I popped my new copy of No More Heroes into my Wii and started playing in front of my siblings, I wouldn“t have done it then. As soon as the game began, I was greeted with bloodshed and colorful obscenities that made my face turn a brilliant red as my siblings watched on. It didn“t stop there, either.

 

I soon found that in order to recharge my weapon, the beam katana, Travis had to thrust it up and down in front of him in a way that mimicked masturbation. Because of this, I needed to find a save point, and quickly, before anybody saw any more of what was going on. The cherry on top: saving by means of using the toilet. I didn“t play the game for a long time after that, but when I did, I blasted right through and enjoyed it immensely (and played without anyone else in the room, of course).

Bayonetta

 

Bayonetta is an odd game and maybe it“s not quite a shock that it“s on this list. It is well known that the game presents an abundance of sexual themes that may cause for awkwardness amongst you and those watching (poses, crotch shots, and the appearance of some enemies). However, there“s some other unusual moments that will leave non-gamers (and maybe even you) scratching their head.

 

The most discussed is the fact that Bayonetta attacks with her hair, and not just that, but that her whole outfit is composed of her hair. It may not be obvious at first, but it“s soon realized when you use her climax attack and witness her hair-clothes coming off her body and spiraling around her. Try explaining that to your folks.

Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4

 

Persona 4 is another one of my favorite games that made its way on this list. However, it“s not absent of any risqué and uncomfortable moments. It retains the same demons (or personas as they“re known in this game) as the rest of the series, such as the ever-popular Mara, that may get some questioning looks from your family.

 

This game is a bit different from the other entries in the series, though, with how it treads through the lives of everyday teenagers. Thus, it brings typical teenage shenanigans and problems (such as questioning sexuality) to the table more often and makes that present in the game“s characters, bosses, and dungeons. It makes up for it with some hilarious moments everyone can relate to, though.

 


 

Honorable Mentions

 

Eternal Sonata – “Why is Chopin fighting monsters?â€

Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty – naked Raiden doing cartwheels

Enchanted Arms – overly flamboyant main character and incredibly bad voice acting

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World – the two main characters will make anyone cringe (and you even more so with others watching) and “Courage is the magic that turns dreams into reality!â€

Whoa!! i love playing NMH with my friends, but i do hate playing it in front of my parents, i haven't done so, actually, must be pretty akward.

 

As for Nintendogs, i think it's enjoyable, and i don't think people care tbh. I see where you're coming from, though.

Once you're used to playing NMH, playing it in front of friends is absolutely amazing, especially if they don't pay attention to video games at all. I played the NMH2 in front of friends, and they were pointing out everything from the amount of bloodshed, the language, to the phallic shaped battery icon. I had a lot of fun just listening to comments.

My family makes fun of me when I play Alice Madness Returns. A very cool fun game , but when you see an adult play people get tend to give you crap.
