    Are you ready for excitement?! Are you ready for high-speed non-stop action?! If your answer is "NO", then Desert Bus is just the game for you. In this mini-game remake from a 1995 unreleased Sega CD game called Penn & Teller's Smoke and Mirrors, you get behind the wheel of a bus and try to endure all the fun of a 360 mile, 8 hour road-trip from Tucson to Las Vegas without resting. The game plays in real-time, there is no pause, and you can't go any faster than 45mph. Also, the bus veers slightly so there's no leaving the steering wheel unattended. If it sounds boring, that's because it was supposed to be a comical answer to violent video games of the time. For more information about this Wii homebrew, check out the author's project page linked below.

    OMG, I remember this on the Sega CD. I never played it (8 hour real-time drive through a desert doesn't sound fun) but I always wondered what happens after you completed the trip.
