It seems like everything I search on in Google Play comes up with irrelevant results? For example I searched for "Tube God" the search bar even came up with Tube God as a suggestion for search before I finished it but when I searched Tube God never came up.

It gives you suggested searches based on what others have searched, but that does not mean that the app is available in the market. Also sometimes apps will be available in the market but if your phone isn't supported by the app then it will not show up for you.

No, Google Play Sucks! It is amazing their web site is so much better. Even searching for some apps by exact title name comes up empty. Google needs to wake up.

They can't even get a simple title name search right. I type in my apps name "MCS Contacts". I can't even find it in the list. You would think MCS title is first. But somehow other apps with just MCS or Contacts shows up. Their search is really sucky. Another app I tried is Top Ten Box Office. Again title name of the app. It doesn't show up at all. Google fix your sheet!

I find it helpful sometimes to search on Chrome for Android apps. For example, if you wanted to find a shift calendar, then do a Google search for "Android shift calendar," and the search function may find something more specific than the Play Store search.
