    Come on, Baldur's Gate 2 has this:

    EA Sports these days talking uo Football Player emotions and Corner Flag physics...have they forgotten their Mutant League Hockey/Football past?! The Mutant League games were completely bonkers.

    Some true, some so utterly wrong my brain nearly exploded. 007 Legends and GoldenEye Reloaded: There IS a Paintball mode. In both games. Sonic The Hedgehog: How do you know Sonic Boom doesn't have a sense of humour? I bet it does. Does Sonic wearing a scarf mean it's not funny? Wolfenstein: [SPOILER] It's a different character rather than the Fuhrer, but Mecha Hitler is definitely in Wolfenstein: The New Order. Call of Duty: Finest Hour may have had a few funny easter eggs, but that's the worst game in the series and the original Call of Duty was ironically an answer to how silly the FPS genre was at the time by making a serious shooter. Now they're everywhere of course.

    Sadly, the fact that gaming is now huge big bucks business makes suits to do dumb things and limit the creativity of those who actually make the games.

    I wouldnt say Star Fox lost its humor, sure the story was out of whack in Command, but there was still some humor.

    Well, games try to tell stories now, and as we all know, making someone cry is easier than making them laugh.

    Some of the games here don't even belong here but are just so you can talk about them, Sonic being differently designed doesn't mean they lost humor, Sonic does humor in Multiple ways of jokes. Also wow, Star Fox is so funny because if 1 secret ending, lets ignore that command has an ending where Fox and Falco go become F-Zero racers. Still a good article but some things are misplaced.

    I think Saint's Row provides enough zaniness for everyone. Just the other day Hitler and Peter Griffin were playing chicken in ice cream vans before tasering one another off motorbikes.

    Hey Alex, great article on a topic that is sadly starting to affect more series. But in the Wolfenstein slide you do kind of spoil the final boss, a reveal I was really looking forward to seeing myself, and I think the game is new enough to warrant a spoiler warning. Any way you could throw one on there?
  • Alex Blake - June 25, 2014 8:23 a.m.

    Apologies for the spoiler, I have changed it now. Glad you enjoyed the article!
