Top 10 Most Embarrassing Video Games

Many games have embarrassing moments, but not as many are one big embarrassing moment unto themselves. Welcome to and today we’ll be counting down our picks for the top 10 most embarrassing videogames.

For this list, we’re looking at games you definitely don’t want to play when other people are around, but we’re excluding any porn or X-rated games cause that’s just too easy.

#10: “Soulcalibur IV” & “V” (2008 & 2012)

While one may obviously point at Ivy’s gradually shrinking outfit for this list, it’s actually a unique armor system that takes the honor here. The players begin the match wearing a sturdy set of armor, but as time goes on and the health bars slowly decay the various armor pieces shatter. The result is your parents walking in on you playing a game where it looks like the aim is to brutally remove as much clothing from your opponent as possible. Only then, when they’re standing in their underwear in the middle of a deathmatch, can the final blow be dealt. If it wasn’t enough in “Soulcalibur IV,” however, Project Soul included this gameplay element in its sequel as well.

#9: “Bayonetta” series (2010-)

It may be a popular series with an engaging story, loveable characters, and one of the greatest hack & slash combat systems, but you just can’t get away from the fact you’re playing as a witch who is naked more often than she isn’t. Bayonetta’s entire costume is made of her own magical hair, which she also uses to conjure demons to fight the game’s various enemies. Every time she pulls of an elaborate move she lets out a shriek of pleasure, and the entire soundtrack is a pop remix of “Fly Me to the Moon” played on a loop; these things combined means that you’ll definitely have some explaining to do if you get caught playing.

#8: “Catherine” (2011)

The puzzle-platforming gameplay of “Catherine” may be relatively unremarkable, but it’s the entire premise and story that will make you lock the door when you boot it up. Protagonist Vincent is faced with the choice to either marry his long-term girlfriend Katherine with a “K”, or cheat on her with the significantly younger and enigmatic Catherine with a “C”. What Vincent decides is ultimately down to the player, though they cannot prevent Vincent’s cheating to begin with. However the most confrontational parts are the confessionals: Sections which ask the player a series of embarrassing relationship question, better be honest or else you may find yourself sleeping on the couch.

#7: “Night Trap” (1992)

Better described as a peeping tom simulator, “Night Trap” was so controversial that it was one of the games which led to the Entertainment Software Rating Board being created in the 1990s. The player takes on the role of a special agent tasked with secretly helping a group of teenage girls trapped in a spooky house overnight survive attacks from mysterious assailants. However, things get creepy when you’re allowed to switch between cameras at will, eavesdropping on these girls as they go about their private business. Still worse, the primary gameplay is live-action footage of real actresses, making the voyeurism even more sinister.

#6: “Bikini Karate Babes” (2002)

This game is definitely one you can judge by its cover. The premise of a fighting game based entirely around women in bikinis fighting each otheris embarrassing already, but add in some terrible visuals and animations and you’ve got something nobody would be proud to play. Their fighting styles can only loosely be described as “karate”, too, and some of their special “mystic moves” leave much to be desired. When a game features a character shooting laser beams from her breasts as her ultimate, the developers have a lot to answer for.

#5: “Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude” (2004)

The entire “Leisure Suit Larry” series has been quite embarrassing from day one, following adult virgin Larry Laffer in is attempts to trick women into bed. But the eighth title was a departure from this, featuring new protagonist Larry Lovage – the original’s nephew – as well as an entirely new development team. With this new team came new ideas, with the biggest one being that “Magna Cum Laude” should feature some actual nudity. It may have received some censorship in the US, but throughout Europe Larry’s pornographic pursuits went unhindered as he competes for “tokens of affection” by manipulating his way into college students’ pants.

#4: “Tomak: Save the Earth Love Story” (2001)

The aim of “Tomak” is to prove that true love does still exist, and you do that by seducing the goddess of love, Evian, who just so happens to be a disembodied human head in a flowerpot. The reason you have to romance Evian is because if you don’t, the other gods will wipe out mankind because romance is dead. And the reason why she’s a head is to show that it’s love and not lust which wins out. However, the core gameplay is having to feed, nurture and entertain Evian’s head, making it into a bizarre pet/dating simulator very difficult to explain to outsiders. Thanks Japan.

#3: “Muscle March” (2010)

The Nintendo Wii, like any console, has its fair share of weird games – but perhaps none are quite as inexplicable as “Muscle March.” Players take on the role of a jacked body-builder whose protein powder is stolen from him when he’s in the gym. Understandably you give chase, following the thief through various walls and obstacles while forced to strike poses with the Wii-mote in order to actually make it through the gaps. The cartoonish art style and subject matter will convince you you’re actually playing a Japanese game show, only the only prize you get at the end is a big helping of embarrassment and little else.

#2: “Dead or Alive Xtreme” series (2003-2016)

And now it’s time for our latest instalment of “Who didn’t see this one coming?” And today it’s a game series that’s so shameless, that even it’s TV adverts aren’t ashamed to hide it’s intent. The primary ‘goal’ is to compete in minigames in order to win tokens to buy more and more swimsuits for the characters. But the series isn’t without its critics; the objectification of the girls has been a hotly debated issue throughout its lifespan, as well as some of the weirder minigames – especially the “butt battles” where they have to knock each other off a podium and into a pool using, you guessed it, their butts.

Before we unveil our top pick, here are a few Honorable Mentions:

“Rumble Roses” (2004)

“Creature of Koi Shiyo! KokonoeKokoro!” (2018)

“Seaman” (2000)

#1: “HuniePop” (2015)

A winning combination of tile-matching puzzles and dating sim gameplay, “HuniePop” was deemed so risqué that Twitch actually banned users from streaming it. Under the direction of a magic love fairy name Kyu, the player is tasked with seducing twelve girls in their fictional home town. Some of these women are regular humans, while one is a cat girl, another is an alien, and finally a goddess. Solving the tile puzzles and getting them into bed may fill the characters with pleasure, but it’s only going to fill you with embarrassment.
