The Most Ridiculous Simulator Games

Who’s actually playing these? I mean, seriously?

On a side note: Some quick Googling has informed me that these games are much more popular in Germany where they have cool names like Landwirtschafts and Flugrettung Simulator.

Here are the most ridiculous simulation video games that are inexplicably popular.

Street Cleaning Simulator

strange simulator games

Yes, it’s a real game, and you can still buy it. Why you would want to, however, is anyone’s guess. Aside from some nice looking street cleaners, which are inherently ugly creations, it’s all broken.

There’s no conceivable reason to ever want to play a game like this. Maybe it’s a new age children’s punishment...

Tow Truck Simulator

strange simulator games

Pay close attention to everything that’s happening in this screenshot. At first glance, everything’s normal, but it’s a total madhouse! The tow truck has had a little crash and is on a ludicrous angle unless it was driving the wrong way, there’s a car sitting on its side in the emergency lane, another car appears to be attempting a U-turn in a one-way lane -- with another car directly behind it -- and there’s a man just walking around what appears to be a freeway. That’s without even considering the ambitious lifting of the rape-van.

Excellent.

Walk it Out (Walking Simulator)

strange simulator games

Yep, a walking simulator. There’s little to do in Walk it Out, but that’s the point. It was designed to be a lazy man’s Wii Fit. It aims to get you off the couch and walk around. Do we really need a game for that?

Forklift Simulator

After watching that sweet drifting, you want to play some Forklift Simulator, don’t you?

Crane Simulator

strange simulator games

There’s not much to be said about Crane Simulator; pick stuff up, move it around a bit, put it down. Do it all again. It’s a hard day’s e-work.

Farming Simulator

Farming Simulator is actually quite popular. Train and Flight simulation games are respected amongst a large community because they have a strong install-base. Farming Simulator isn’t that far off, but I just can’t take it seriously.

I understand some fanboy love for operating planes and trains, but farm equipment? Really? Unless it’s gangsta style.

Digger Simulator

strange simulator games

Crashing a digger is surprisingly fun, and easy. That’s why you need to wear a high visibility jacket, because occupational health and safety says it will keep you very, very safe.

Also, is that thing really called a digger? Does it have a more legit name?

Imagine: Party Babyz

strange simulator games

Where to begin? A baby sim is one thing, a party planning game is another. Combing them is just plain weird...

Bus and Cable Car Simulator

strange simulator games

Only fools would buy Bus Simulator 2. Double your value with Bus AND Cable Car Simulator in the one frugal package.

I thought cable cars were more or less automated, but apparently there’s a role for you to play in this thorough simulation.

Road Construction Simulator

strange simulator games

Driving is so mainstream. In Road Construction Simulator, you can unnecessarily hold up traffic like a pro. At least, that’s what it should say on the box if it’s really an accurate recreation.

Woodcutter Simulator

strange simulator games

At least simulation games are environmentally friendly. Don’t doom us all by cutting down real trues, become a pro in Woodcutter Simulator.

Euro Truck Simulator

strange simulator games

Euro Truck Simulator is another surprisingly popular addition on the list. Although, I’d much rather just drive around in a lorry in GTA: San Andreas. At least you can drive around a massive world, murder a prostitute, drive a bit more, eat some burgers, murder, drive, eat, and eventually roll your semi down a large mountain into the only house for miles.

That’s far more realistic.

Taxi Simulator

strange simulator games

Crazy Taxi may have stolen the spotlight from Taxi Simulator. As far as I can tell, it’s the same thing, only much more...fun. I wonder if it has Melbourne mode: where you take the poor sucker’s money, before going anywhere.

Imagine: Babysitters

strange simulator games

Once again, the Imagine series scares me a little bit. The target market for such a game is probably being babysat themselves right now. It’s almost as stupid as the doll that really poops. That was a good idea.

Although I’m a little concerned that there appears to be a grown woman in the picture, rather than a 7-year-old girl. This is how real toddlers get neglected to the point of death.

Destruction Simulator

strange simulator games

This is both the best and most realistic game in the Simulator series. A bunch of men down the road from our office have done a magnificent job of destroying a building. No progress since then, other than ruining the footpath.

Stone Quarry Simulator

strange simulator games

I have no idea what this vehicle, but I would very much like to drive about in it.

Road Works Simulator

strange simulator games

I would have thought that constructing roads would have sufficed, but apparently we also need to repair completed works. Once again, it’s mostly a bunch of men wearing hardhats, standing around, not working.

Ship Simulator

strange simulator games

If planes and trains can generate massive audiences, why not ships? Well, there’s not much to do out in the open sea in terms of driving the ship. Just straight is probably fine.

Surgery Simulator

strange simulator games

The red thing’s attached to my, wrist watch! Finally a useful game. Actually, there are several games based on surgery simulation, most of them quite terrifying.

I’d be keen to see the research that went into developing such a game.

Crippled Girl Dating Sim (Katawa Shoujo)

strange simulator games

The list wouldn’t be complete without some weird Japanese shit. Katawa Shoujo tasks you without romancing a bunch of ladies who have unfortunate disabilities.

Okay, Japan.

Duel Love (Sweat Wiping Simulator)

strange simulator games

Actually, it gets much worse. Duel Love puts you in the shoes of a young girl who has followed a group of seemingly underage boys into a sauna, watched them undress and proceeds to wipe sweat off their nakedness.

Somebody must have been arrested for that.
