10. Conker’s Bad Fur Day (2001)
Up until 2001, Rare had produced a long and successful series of cartoonish, kid-friendly adventures. That came to an end with Conker’s Bad Fur Day. Cartoonish? Yes. Kid-friendly? Not one f*@king bit. In this R-rated departure, Rare aimed for the South Park vibe, filling the game with edgy humor and twisted characters. The goal: help a drunken squirrel attempting to cure last night’s hangover. But the writing, level design, and platforming mechanics were all spot on, delivering one hilariously bizarre adventure for mature gamers everywhere.
