Cards against Humanity Nic Beaulieu

Games like Borderlands and Deadpool have some comedy relief, but are not games based on the comedic aspect. It is hard to have games completely based on comedy to because it might take away from the seriousness of a game, or the mood of the game. Cards against Humanity work, because it is a game completely based on being as funny, and outright disturbing as possible. However there are some drawbacks to games like this. You don't typically hear about people putting hours upon hours into the game, amassing a crazy win streak, etc. I think this is because your wins/losses have no affect on the rest of the gameplay and their is not much competitiveness. Borderlands has a good balance of the seriousness and comedy in my opinion.
