The Best Thing on the Internet: Perfect Strangers the Videogame

Posted By on Sun, May 6, 2012 at 4:30 PM

Once upon a time, there was a sitcom called Perfect Strangers that told of the adventures of Larry, a neurotic uptight American, and Balki, his distant cousin from an abstract European nation who moved in with him and weekly inflicted overly optimistic and somewhat mutilated views of American culture on Larry.

They had weekly adventures in which Balki proved time and time again that having no idea what the fuck he was talking about often made more sense than whatever it was that Larry thought he knew.

To paraphrase country singer Alan Jackson: Together, they learned a lot about livin' and a little 'bout love.

Now you can relive that experience as a video game. Sort of.

Just type in the dream you want to achieve and then control Balki as he runs through a land of rainbows and magic trying to help Larry achieve it by mangling the letters of the dream into something unpronounceable.

If there is a better time-waster out there this week, we doesn't know about it.
