Music has “Weird Al” Yankovic. Pop culture has Saturday Night Live. Saturday Night Live has 30 Rock. And gaming has… these games, which call attention to some of the more ridiculous aspects of our favorite hobby by emulating them all too perfectly.

(Note: I stuck with free-to-play PC and web-based games for this list, which leaves off a lot of worthy console satires like Half-Minute Hero, Conker’s Bad Fur Day, Retro Game Challenge, Work Time Fun, Takeshi’s Challenge, and even more traditional games like WarioWare Inc. and Eternal Darkness. Check them all out, satire fans)
