    I'm looking for games where a main gimmick involves a meme, like Slender Man in Slender or Blizzard's Cow Level. But not like the Meme voices in that one Worms game or all the memes in Borderlands 2. Anyone know any?

    Games with memes everywhere? But why?
    Guacamelee comes to mind, I guess.

    Saints Row IV has a billion quotes from the internet.

    I don't mean a game that happens to have memes in it. I mean a game that was based around a meme.

    Guacamelee wasn't made based around a meme as its main theme. SR4 wasn't made based around a meme as its main theme.

    Flappy Doge only half counts because it's just Flappy Bird, except its main theme is a meme.

    I need it for science. I want to find the memeist game possible, for science.

    Edit: Flappy Doge is terrible because the hit detection is off and the flapping is delayed by half a second.

    Poke around homebrew sections, however most of those seem to mainly be something basic wearing a meme skin.

    The closest I can get has not been released but have a look at Dudebro™ — My Shit Is Fucked Up So I Got to Shoot/Slice You II: It’s Straight-Up Dawg Time

    I just remembered of a commercial game called "LOL" for the Nintendo DS. If you take lol as a meme, it might work.
    It was a failure, pretty much a plus version of PictoChat. No wifi and no single player mode. I think it's the only game in the whole DS library where you need other players to join you to play.

    Into the trash you go.

    *le epic trash man face*

    EDIT: I'm going to post this for good measure.

    Though the guy's Kickstarter failed, I have no doubt that you can find similar "meme defense" games on the wretched hive that is the mobile games market.

    The Choking Game is a pretty good meme game.

    Seriously, try it.

    It'd probably be easier to just shoot yourself in the face. Would get pretty much the same result.

    SCP Containment Breach is based on all the stuff from the SCP wiki stuff. IMO the game is straight crap, but I guess you'd be interested in it.
