#7 Embracing the silliness

Yep... that
Yep... that's a zombie, all right

Professional wrestling is inherently a big, dumb, goofy spectacle. That's not to say it can't be used to tell serious, epic, and even dark stories sometimes.

But, at its core, it's two (or more) people in their underpants, pretending to fight. And, I love it because of that. And based on some of the sillier aspects of the WWE 2K games in the past, so do Yuke's.

Take, for example, the latest game in the series - WWE 2K19. Head over to the settings and you'll find something called Big Head Mode. Check it out:

Not Tiny Body Mode, mind you...
Not Tiny Body Mode, mind you...

You'll have a little bit of work to do in order to unlock it (or just purchase the "Accelerator" add-on which unlocks everything from the get go, in case you're a lazy dork, like I am), but once you do, it's a lot of fun. Here's some other wacky stuff to try just in 2K19 alone:

Usually, the silliness could be found in the game's "Showcase" modes, which would tell a story based around a specific wrestler - and usually involved something ridiculous. From Edge and Christian directly referencing the actual player - you know... you - to your character in 2K19's MyPlayer story fighting zombies, the series has never shied away from including some of the wackier stuff in their games. And we love them for it.
