Absurdly Specific Genre: Soccer Ball Tensile Strength Simulator
A couple of guys at Technōs Japan decided to make a soccer game where the game played resembled soccer in name only. I propose a toast to those paragons of sports gaming, for what they created on that fateful day was Nintendo World Cup. It is to soccer what NFL Blitz is to football - absurdly unrealistic, violent, and above all, stupidly entertaining.
The game itself was pretty decent, filled with passing, tackling, and goalkeeping - you know... vaguely soccer-related activities. Then you learned how to power kick.

"You know how we were planning on coding realistic looking shots, let's get really drunk, instead."
You could always play by yourself, but co-op was where it was at. With one player going around brutally murdering every defender on the field, and the other player perching himself right in front of the goal (offsides wasn't even something you could turn on), Cameroon never stood a chance.
