"Camp" Games - an IFDB Poll

Games which have, or might be considered to have, a camp aesthetic or sense of humor.

"Camp is a certain mode of aestheticism. It is one way of seeing the world as an aesthetic phenomenon. That way, the way of Camp, is not in terms of beauty, but in terms of the degree of artifice, of stylization."

"Camp is a vision of the world in terms of style -- but a particular kind of style. It is the love of the exaggerated, the "off," of things-being-what-they-are-not."

- Susan Sontag, "Notes on "Camp"".
