Who says video games have to be serious? Not us! In fact, we've found 10 video games with backstories that are so bonkers that you'll be laughing out loud.

We've all played video games with outrageous backstories, like defeating a giant space turtle or saving the world from an alien invasion. But few video games have backstories as bonkers as "Splatoon 2." For example, one of the game's bosses is a sentient sushi roll that lives in a submarine. And if that's not weird enough, the sushi roll is actually trying to protect the world from an alien octopus! Honestly, I have no idea what's going on in "Splatoon 2," but we are definitely curious to find out more. If you're looking for a wacky (and strangely adorable) video game experience, be sure to check out "Splatoon 2." Who knows, you might just end up saving the world.

There's a reason why every video game character, level, weapon, and setting exists. And occasionally, the cause is downright bizarre. Here are some of the craziest stories we could locate about well-known video game features.
