Someone should take that poker idea and expand it to even more "humor" characters.

I thought Conker:Live and Reloaded was kinda funny, and also the part in Assassin's Creed and mario said 'its a me, mario'

Uncharted series...all I need to say.

So did I. Hey, remember MDK? That too was hilarious from the intro to the ending scene! So was - any - Oddworld.

I can't believe anyone would write about comedy in gaming and not even mention Uncharted. Uncharted games have the perfect amount of humor in them.

The clown bit made it the funniest game ever. Because I've hated clowns all my life. I don't think any movie scarred me more then "IT" when I was a kid. Uncharteds humor is perfect.
