Odd Moments in Japanese Arcade Gaming

Let's face it, games developed in Japan can get downright strange.  I'm not saying all Japanese games are weird, because it would be gamer blasphemy to knock such masterpieces as the Mario and Zelda franchises, and the majority of the Final Fantasy games.  Although, think about the concept of Super Mario for a second and tell me it's not weird to play a game where a fat plumber warps around using pipes while battling killer turtles.

Anyway, the strangeness of some of these games extends to the arcades of Japan, where we see games that would probably not survive in censorship-crazy America.  One such game is Boong-Ga Boong-Ga.

As you can probably tell from the screenshot, Boong-Ga Boong-Ga is an ass-smacking simulator, where you hit the butt attached to the machine, and poke it using the supplied plastic finger, in order to score points.  While the sick bastards play this game, they get to watch the screen and get further enjoyment from seeing the pained facial expressions of the digital person whose ass is being attacked.

New this year in Japan is the Sega Toylet, which is a game add-on for urinals in public bathrooms.
Apparently taking a leak has never been this fun.
The Sega Toylet contains multiple game modes, all which have to do with measuring urine streams using a pressure sensor embedded in the urinal.  One such game is all about "washing" graffiti off a virtual wall by urinating as hard as possible onto the sensor.  As weird as this whole gaming concept sounds, am I the only one who thinks this would be a huge hit here in America?

Until next time, happy ass-smacking!
