The Sims 2 Nintendo Gameboy Advance
I adore this game and I adore Strangetown. The combination of: The OST, which is both fitting and memorable (It was remastered 2 years ago by the composer); The visuals, amazingly atmospheric; The characters, which are an assortment of stereotypes both human and not written in a way I enjoyed and of course each episode's stories themselves are the four things that make it what it is: weird. Great, but weird. While as a story-based game the gameplay itself isn't anything too exciting, the minigames are actually fun. Although the cola minigame is undoubtedly the most iconic, my favourites are Bigfoot Love Chickens (a money machine) and Keelhaulin' Cards. With the exception of Canyon Jumping they're all integrated into the world nicely. Even then the exception can be forgiven, because Strangetown is indeed strange. I've heard complaints of excessive grind and while it's a good idea to level up the social moves...
