I'll start.

Dudgeon World: a game about grumpy people living in a world of some sort; maybe it's a fantasy world, maybe not, all we know is: they're annoyed

Codbound: you have powers over one species of fish, and nothing else

Mu Shu: a game about Chinese cooking competitions (...actually this one might not suck)

Burning Heel: a game about walking barefoot in the desert, and no other activities

Codbound: you have powers over one species of fish, and nothing else
That reminds me of something my brother once scratched into the wood of his desk when he was young: "AB is Cod". It was meant to be "Cool", but the final o and the l were too close together...

I offer:

Park Dungeons
A retroclone of one of the classic games where you get to venture underground and plant flowers, walk the dog and have picnics

Cage: The Awakening. The PC's all wake up in a cage. What happens next depends on who or what else the GM put in the cage with you.

Alternately...

Cage: The Ascension. The PC's are underground cage match fighters trying to work their way up the ranks for big payouts while avoiding the law.

Chronicles of Dorkness - basically every unsympathetic depiction of role-playing games in the media. Full of cringe and inanity.

Dredd - uses Jenga as a task resolution mechanic. If the tower falls, you've been gunned down by the Judge.

Ball of Cthulhu - elder gods compete to fill their dance cards, wear the most impressive frocks and flirt with eligible bachelors.

Cogs in the Vineyard - watch assemblers struggle to be respected in a largely agricultural society

Tasks: a New Generation - you're the office-worker descendants of other office workers. Can you get your to-do list completed?

Gortex+ - a generic system for simulating all kinds of cold-weather apparel

Danger Petrol - you pump gas for a living, try not to blow anything up

Earthdown - a game of tunneling into the earth and finding...nothing. Just rocks and dirt.
