Never at a game, just at my brother for dying over and over in Rick Dangerous at bits he'd got through before but forgotten. Or another brother freaking out when the dogs jump through the window in Resident Evil and refusing to play it again.

Simon and the Scorcher made me laugh when I had it on my CD32. I am a big Red Dwarf fan plus the script was pretty good as well. I think Monkey Island 2 made me laugh as well.

SNES Batman Returns. When a badguy gets chucked against one of the background metal posts and it would trigger a dull "bong" sound effect. I frickin' loved it.

I had my Speccy +2a there and I was playing Rainbow Islands on it (a good game to show off at the time) and my computer studies teacher who was a BBC nut came over and said "Hmmmm, bit like Chuckie Egg" my mates and I just burst into laughter we seriously couldn't believe he was trying to compare the 2 games.
I always thought BBC Micro owners were often the most peculiar of types!

Being able to lock someone up in my dungeon in Mad Doctor on C64 then batter them to death whilst they were behind bars, it never got old.

That and the 'ghost' that would occasionally appear when scoring a goal in the original Kick Off on Amiga (basically, some glitch would cause the ball to turn into an all-white player sprite as it entered the net, sometimes). Me and my bro used to cackle a lot at that.

A bit more recent, but remember having some squidgy black about the time GTA:Vice City came out on PS2, 2002/2003, I smoked a couple of spliffs of it and decided to camp my Tommy Vercetti atop buildings, sniping the heads off the 'tramp' NPCs, proper laughing my head off like a loon. For about three hours.

(I'm weird.)

The Secret of Monkey Island. Even playing it now it makes me smile, it's one of my favorite games ever to this day. Outside the "story driven" game, had some big laughs at Smash Bros Melee playing it with my University flatmates after we'd unlocked Mr Game & Watch because of his general bizarreness.

Here's another great story I remember:

My brother was playing my neighbour John at Striker on the Atari ST and lets just say John wasn't the sharpest tool in the box. My bro had crossed a ball in and then managed to foul one of John's players right on the penalty spot. So John gets a freekick and my brother confuses him by going "Sh1t you got a penalty!" John shouts "YES!" and then proceeds to aim the free kick into his own net and score and OG before me and his brother burst into laughter. :lol:
