Surgeon Simulator 2013 is a very interesting game to review because by all accounts it should be horrible. Normally I recommend a game for having fast-paced action with tight controls, flipping, kicking, a strong story and characters monologuing at each other like professional wrestlers, but Surgeon Simulator is the complete opposite in every way.
It doesn’t have much of a story for context, but in a very rare occurrence (for me), it doesn’t need one. The basic jist of it is that you play as a left hand controlled by a brain-dead moron who clearly doesn’t know how surgery works. Using five keys on the keyboard to bend the arm’s fingers, the left mouse button to lower it and the right mouse button to rotate it, you must perform a number of surgical transplants through rather… Unorthodox methods.
And by unorthodox methods, I mean you pull everything out and plop the replacement in the empty cavity. The sloppy surgery combined with the awkward crane controls and physics is the core of the game's cathartic appeal. It is one of the only games I have ever played that purposefully and successfully nails being so bad it’s good.
