It depends on the style of funny you are looking for. The Princess Bride isn't "Roll-on-the-floor laughing because someone got a penguin in the eye" funny, nor is it "Benny Hill chasing a semi-naked old guy" funny. Its not "Coupling" funny either, though that's closer. It's sort of "serious M.A.S.H." funny, but not really.
Is it amusing? I think so, but it is a quiet humor, mixed with a younger style of adventure movie. If that's not what you like, that's fine, just like I don't like a lot of modern "angry insulting" comedy.
P.S. I got it the first time I read it, without having the specific videogame reference in my brain. If I had played the game, it might have actually been harder to get.
