I need some help identifying "nonsense" games to add to my geeklist:

Nonsense Games

Basically, looking for games that deliberately (or pervasively accidentally) just don't make any sense or can't be played. I'm not talking about games that just suck or are ridiculously complex. I'm talking about deliberately nonsensical games. They may read like a normal game, etc. But when you get right down to it... they just don't make any sense. At all.

That is confusing.

Encounter Critical and 50 ShaDes Of vOrpal yes (though I've never actually seen the latter).

But Spawn of Fashan can be played, for sure. I mean, it's bad. But playable...

Hit a Dude is nonsense. It's playable, but no one should.

Yeah, yeah, I know it's a joke.

It is not a joke, but worthy of intensive philosophical and literary analysis.

Would Realms of Atlantasia (available here if you really want it) fit?

Apologies for how annoying that link is. To read the blog posts in order, you have to go to the end of the search results and work your way up the page. shake

Edit: It's either deliberately nonsensical or it's catastrophically bad. Sometimes it's hard to tell.

Thanks. Guess I should've clarified I'm looking for roleplaying games.
