significant entertainment value to the

the dying angle here so if you feel like
an obvious entry is missing you might be
able to find it on our other list top 10
games where it’s fun to fail i’m todd
haberkorn and as someone who is dying
every day I think I’ve got the perfect
insight into the ingredients for this
list and by dying everyday I mean really
when you think about it aren’t we all
right this very second hashtag this got
super dark well at least you’ve got this
channel to keep you warm as you
eventually change your eternal mailing
address to death’s doorstep one day oh
let’s get ready to mojo
number ten Space Quest series in the 80s
and 90s point-and-click adventure games
had a notorious reputation for being
rather unforgiving when it came to
player actions Space Quest is a prime
example having dozens of different ways
for players to get themselves axed off
if that wasn’t bad enough the game would
often pour salt in the wound by poking
fun at each mistake made every death
comes with some smart-mouthed commentary
at least the game was laughing with us
rather than at us at least that’s what
we tell ourselves after every single
exploration number nine leisure suit
larry series you wouldn’t think a series
based around getting jiggy with the
ladies would incur that many fatalities
but you’d be surprised in an odd way
finding all the ways to get larry killed
is actually one of the franchise’s most
entertaining aspects given how much of a
sleaze larry can be we can’t help but
laugh at his misfortune whenever we make
him do something that results in his
over-the-top end as life ebbs from you
your body’s picked clean by wandering
bums muggers and raccoons these deaths
may be cartoony and downright cheesy but
that doesn’t make them any less funny
plus they double as important life
lessons like how the art of seduction is
a double-edged sword with at least three
number eight King’s Quest series
well-well-well water you gonna do now
you’ve got to appreciate the deaths
found in adventure games there’s just
something magical about meeting a grisly
end in such a light-hearted genre the
King’s Quest series is yet another
example that fits under that blood
drenched umbrella but ups the fun with
delightfully grown inducing wordplay and
puns galore some of the ways you can die
include getting too close to a bear
getting stung by a scorpion or the
always popular getting crushed by a
boulder the moving rock moves downhill
and right into you a crushing defeat
there’s even a couple of games where you
can just die from being idle too long
needless to say this King knows how to
troll and we wouldn’t have it any other
big shout out to King’s Quest 6 I loved
playing the bones I love phones in the
underworld yes
the gnomes toss Alexander too far out
into the sea for him to get his footing
the currents drag him under number 7
happy wheels
ah an internet classic if you’re looking
for a quick fix and hilarious game overs
this title is bound to tickle your funny
bone while metaphorically breaking it
levels can spike in difficulty at the
drop of a hat leading to your avatar of
choice suddenly exploding into a
fountain of blood in a glorious fashion
by meshing together ragdoll physics with
blades harpoons landmines and spike
traps happy wheels makes for a
one-of-a-kind gorefest that still has
number 6 human fall flat simplistic yet
oh so satisfying this little indie hit
is best experienced in the company of a
friend while you’re meant to traverse a
variety of different areas and solve
puzzles the real appeal here is to grab
the nearest object and let the trolling
commence once you and your friend
discover the ability to grab and pick
each other up it may be hard for either
of you to get serious and stop throwing
each other off the map you can still
enjoy the oddly serene solo campaign if
you wish but the level design respawn
mechanics and imminent multiplayer
shenanigans make messing around just too
much fun use your hand not your face
were you one of those kids that spent
hours building something only to destroy
it minutes later well if you’re looking
for a similar experience this explosive
Indy has you covered in order to
progress you’ll have to build different
and increasingly complex structures and
vehicles of course it’s easy to get
sidetracked and start building stuff
completely irrelevant to your objective
as you might expect most of your
creations are going to end up exploding
which is arguably when the game is at
its most rewarding finally I can fulfill
my dream of creating the ultimate
doomsday weapon the haba gedan coming
summer of 2019 this is glorious I don’t
know how the hell it keeps do this
number 4 worms series sure nothing beats
the satisfaction of watching an enemy
unit be consumed by a perfectly thrown
Holy Hand Grenade but recent titles have
still gone out of their way to make
dying just as much fun as winning this
can mostly be found through customizing
your worm squad that’s what she said
on top of cosmetic features you can
choose from a wide variety of voice
packs each with their own unique
attitudes and dialogue yes that includes
what their final words are listening to
the worms spit out pop-culture
references before detonating themselves
into a tombstone
he’s morbidly delightful
this might be cheating a bit but when
you think about it you’re not playing as
a driver you’re playing as the cars so
when the cars crashed that’s technically
a death right marinate on that and get
back to us well anyways burnout is
famous for its slow motion replay
feature where players can witness every
detail of their untimely demise seeing
the damage you’ve caused is both
shocking and hysterical
especially when you accidentally hit
another car sorry triple-a Motor Club
the slow-mo is so addictive that it’s
caused some players to plug in and play
purely for the sake of unleashing the
destructive Motorhead that exists in all
of us taking it to the streets taking it
taking it to those streets
so you want to build spaceships but
don’t want to go through the dangerous
process of testing them out yourself
never fear these derpy looking dudes
will happily pilot your creations even
if they’re likely to burst into flames
or be left stranded in the Dyson vacuum
of space the best part about this game
you can watch the destruction unfold
from every angle you can think of
granted we feel guilty about putting the
curve balls through so many failures but
hey that’s their job right get back in
number one Mortal Kombat series wins
fatality whereas other fighting games go
for the classic ko this murderous
masterpiece of a franchise grants
players the option to humiliate their
opponents by reducing them to bloody
chunks that now iconic fatalities are so
horrific Lee creative but most of the
time you don’t even feel that upset
about losing really it’s more of a
queasy I need to do my rosemarys for an
hour feeling over the years we’ve gotten
the opportunity to witness the many ways
someone can be literally deconstructed
yet scorpion and the rest keep finding
new ways to improve upon perfection
