Goat Simulator 3
Platforms: Windows, PS5, Xbox Series X/S
The next entry on our list of the best comedy games is none other than Goat Simulator 3, which is technically the second game in the series, not the third.
This is just the beginning of Goat Simulator 3’s shenanigans as the sequel introduces even more ridiculous goat hijinks.
Building off of the original, it sees up to 4 players exploring a vibrant open world for the purpose of wreaking havoc everywhere they go.
To aid you in your quest, the game provides a random assortment of physics-based hijinks in the form of unique gadgets, power-ups, vehicles, and triggerable events.
No doubt one of the funniest rhythm games ever released, Trombone Champ sees you honking, blowing, and tooting your way to the top of the music charts.
Complete with over 20 songs and 50 unique cards to unlock, the game invites you to uncover the mysteries of the “Trombiverse.”
This is done by tackling each track with unique mouse-based controls that require you to line up your cursor with the correct inputs.
