We received far more entries for our intentionally brief Odama screenshot contest than we imagined. We've now seen more Scientology jokes (it's the one religion you're allowed to make fun of), Star Wars scenes (man you guys are nerds!), and even an MSPaint-applied wiener (you know who you are) that we think is allowable by law. In comparison, our selection was a pretty safe bet. The formula for a winning entry is as follows:

  1. Dress Tom Cruise as Link
  2. Make him crazy (note the red eyes...and Tom Cruise)
  3. Add revmote (natch)
  4. Add dialog to taste
  5. Voilá! Winning entry!
Nice job RS! Odama is on its way to our great neighbor up North. A big thanks to everyone that entered our humble little contest. Keep reading to check out some more awesome (and deranged) creations from our runners-up.




Mad photoshop skillz not necessary. This one even came with a story: "HOLLYWOOD, California (Joystiq) - Tom Cruise, world-renowned actor, has decided to remove himself from the motion picture based on the popular video game Odama . Cruise recently decided that his role of Yamanouchi Kagetora '[clashes] with Scientology's beliefs and practices.' Nintendo Home Video (NHV), creators of the movie, responded by replacing Cruise with a black box in all of his scenes. The image above is a photo of the edited movie released by NHV."


One of the many silent birth entries...it's alright to laugh.


An entry appropriately titled zOMGTEHWTF! We might add BBQ in there for total pastiche effectiveness.


Why doesn't this game exist? Seriously. I'd play it. Revolution exclusive? Get on it, Ross.


This entry went the total-conversion mod approach, resulting in a nice mix of feudal Japan and...Lion King?


One of the many Katamari Damacy entries. Bonus points for the Tom Cruise item indicator in the lower left...what's harder to roll up, him or his ego? Oh schnap! Noididnt!


Yeah, we got several of the same entry with minor variations. This one was executed particularly well. I think Eps. 1-3 just pain me too much to think about it any more...


You know what he's so scared of? The Joystiq 2006 limited edition, ultra-deluxe megashirt! Aiieeeeeee!


So, if Tom Cruise isn't the MCP...


Always knew Tom was from outer space, but a Zebesian Space Pirate? Get 'em Samus!


"If Tom Cruise never broke into show business..."
