Umm and what form did Gozer take? Oh yeah, that super scary Pillsbury Doughboy parody called the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man....

Give me a break! Yeah at certain points towards the build up to the climax the movie takes a slightly serious tone. But the payoff is a giant Marshmallow Man! Which deliberately undermines any pretense of seriousness that came before.
In the original concept for Gozer, the Marshmallow Man was only supposed to be an "intermediate" form it took based on Ray's thoughts before morphing into a scarier form. This form was never done because of budget constraints, but there are some storyboards for it. That being said, personally I think the existing film works. It's a silly moment to be sure, but I think it works.
