Games don't always have to be serious. Actually, they do have potential for comedy and some games seem to exploit that quite well. Any games you find especially funny? Saints Row (most of them, especially The Third, and IV). References everywhere. It almost seems like everything in those games is a reference to something. If something isn't a reference, its probably a parody of a real life issue. The dialog can be quite amusing at times too. Serious Sam 3... the protagonist is hilarious at times, and at least once references an old TV ad while blowing something up. Grand Theft Auto V - Trevor... enough said.
