 Critically Hated Games That Are Actually Awesome


While other surreal, Dadaist games have found some success within the medium, some are simply too absurdly weird to receive anything close to a good critical response. This might have been the problem for Mister Mosquito for the PlayStation 2, a game in which the player plays a mosquito desperate to suck the blood from the Yamada family in order to survive the winter.



Gameplay was focused around individual rooms of the house as players had to cautiously suck blood at certain moments of the Yamadas’ routines, taking care not to be seen. Here comes the strangest part: If the victim notices you, you enter into a “boss battle” of sorts, where you have to attack certain pressure points on their body to force them into relaxing and ignoring you again. It was a little bit like the plane battle at the end of King Kong, only if after being dive-bombed enough times, Kong just got tired and went back to doing homework.



The game only managed a 65 Metacritic score, but it’s hard not to be charmed by its unique level design and play style. One particular level involves the player timing their bloodsucking in between someone’s workout, scored to a hazy, copyright-proof version of the Rocky theme song. When a game is this bizarrely innovative, it’s definitely worth a play.
