The Chu Chu Rocket Effect

The Chu Chu Rocket Effect: Applies to any video game with a weird title, weird premise, weird screenshots, weird manual, and weird theory. The entire game sounds very odd, quirky, and has a "why the hell would I want to play this" feel to it...

right up until you start playing, at which point it becomes an instant favorite.

It's named after a very good example of the effect, in Chu Chu Rocket... but I think Super Monkey Ball from the same company does it as well.
