Sometimes, the writing in a game is so good, you find yourself rendered speechless. If only these particular games were also rendered speechless.
I like when games that intentionally have cringeworthy writing and go the limit with it. Titles like Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, House of the Dead: Overkill, Double Dragon Neon, & Bayonetta are a few examples of this.
It really begs the question of when is something "so bad, it's good"? Sometimes intentionally cheesy dialogue suits the game or genre quite well. I dig the examples you cited - House of the Dead in particular has always been at the forefront of this.
deadly premonition is one such game that is so bad it's good.
Blood Dragon’s cringy writing was deliberate. I am surprised the Perfect Dark series wasn’t on the list.
