Sons of the Forest is the funniest videogame on the internet right now

It dawned on me this week, just moments after gnawing on the crispy arm of a guy that tried to kill me, that Sons of the Forest, the hardcore survival sim that’s currently dominating Steam (opens in new tab), is a deeply funny game. Not so much because of the cannibalism part (though I did chuckle the first time I barbequed a human limb for all of 12 seconds and then ate it whole), but because I then turned around to find my faithful but bumbling NPC companion Kelvin ankle deep in a pond, staring blankly at the water. He’d been trying to yank fish out of the pond with his bare hands, something I had asked him to do about 15 minutes earlier and then swiftly forgotten.

I felt bad, because Kelvin was clearly so desperate to please me that he wouldn’t let his lack of a fishing pole, hooks, bait, or functioning fish trap (opens in new tab) stop him from completing my arbitrary chore. I was on my way to give him a well-deserved pat on the back when I tripped over a fish. No, not a fish. It was 13 fish. A baker’s dozen of trout haphazardly piled behind Kelvin, who presumably didn’t have time to organize them because he’d just hoisted another from the water. Kelvin is a god of fishing! Of course he is! This game is so dumb. I’m into it.
