Funny Business: How Humor Benefits the Gaming Experience

I am getting sincerely tired of these depressing games—when I sit down to relax, typically the last thing I want to experience is emotional trauma at the hands of my entertainment. Personally, I’m a fan of funny games, and as any fiction writer will tell you, good comedy’s even harder to do than good drama. On top of the aforementioned balance between going too far and not far enough, you have to consider your timing, your relevance, and your target audience in ways not applicable to drama. (Borderlands 2, Culture, Industry, Rogue Legacy)

I really don't find games very funny, especially when they try too hard.
