Let's look at some titles that are just downright awful. Some people have a knack(lol) for names and some, clearly don't. Awsome Possum kicks Dr.Machino's butt.  It's like calling a game :mario the plumber jumps over bowser and knock him in lava" but slightly worse. Not to mention the game is not that good. i would put Bubsy above it. Speaking of: Bubsy in Claw encounters of the furred kind.  Title makes no sense. None of what's in the title happens. Heck, I wish the game allowed you to use claws, make the game less painful to play. The game gets less and less popular every day. back in the day, it got positive reviews, somehow. The Adventures of Rad Gravity  Yo dudes, like Gravity is like totally rad and coool. Phix: The Adventure  You know, after having actually played this game before awhile back, I would like it if they Phixed the adventure.

Indigo Prophecy

The Adventures of Cookie and Cream

Some weird CPC titles:

Purple Saturn Day

Crafton & Xunk

Ranarama

Tir Na Nog

Gorbaf el Vikingo

As someone who actually owns Bubsy....yikes. That game must really suck because Bubsy is one of the worst games I have played in my life

I found Rise of the Robots really broken.

Totally broken fighting system and static graphics.

It otherwise looked good on still images (PC SVGA version in particular) and had a decent soundtrack.

Not really a big deal compared to some, but Super Mario 64 DS comes to mind... 10 syllables for that short of a title? Really? :P

Oh c'mon, Z.H.P. Unlosing Ranger VS Darkdeath Evilman is a great title. It's retarded on purpose.

And oh yeah, how could I forgot about the single worst game title of all time...

Resident Evil

And you know what's funny about this title? The fact that this title was not named by Capcom Japan (which called it Bio-Hazard), but their American branch!

Megaman. Lol. But I would go as far as to say that the U.S. titles are much more odd when you look at some of the more, interesting titles like Montezumas revenge. Because that Diarrhea is going to come back and make you jump around an ancient temple so it can give you diarrhea again. Wait.

Maybe I'm missing something but I don't really see anything wrong with the "Resident Evil" name.

Lol, not only is the name bad, but the game was so bad, even the dev team took out Lammy stages and put in a ton of Parrapa stages in a game not even about him for that sole reason. Also, the name is just hard to take seriously. At least we know Parrapa is a rapper.

#28 Posted by Metallic_Blade (256 posts) -

As much as I love this gem, I'll just hae to ask: Why this name? It has nothing to do with the novel.

Beyond Good & Evil

I can see why this was a turnoff that might have explained the game's commercial failure.

Also just for yucks:

IL-2 Sturmovik 1946

Huh?

That's because we've gotten so used to the name that we've forgotten just how wierd it sounded when it first came out. It's a bit like how we've gotten to used to the name "Metal Gear Solid" that it just doesn't sound that wierd anymore. Or for that matter, the name "Final Fantasy VII" didn't make any sense either, because that's just an oxymoron.
#30 Posted by Business_Fun (2281 posts) -

Armored Core: For Answer. Not that I think it's a bad name as such (in fact I rather like its bizarre opacity) but can anyone tell me what in blazes that For Answer bit is trying to say?

#31 Posted by NationProtector (806 posts) -
Time Crisis, because it has nothing to do with time and there is no crisis.

Terrible controls that felt tanked liked.

#34 Posted by WillieManga (9 posts) -

Yo! Noid (Yeah, they made a game about that pizza douchebag, Noid.)

Sticky Balls (No kidding)

No one can stop Mr. Domino! (Not even if you tip him over?)

XEXYZ (A name I can't pronounce. Decent game, though)

Irritating Stick (The name is fitting though, as it's irritatingly glitched.)

Beyond the Beyond (Beyond the Beyond the Beyond the Beyond the Beyond the Beyond... beyond what, exactly)

Tongue of the Fatman (A fighting game with Kevin Smith in it... just kidding.)

If it Moves, Shoot it (Then in that case, shoot yourself! XD)

Tech Romancer (Ew. Yeah, I know it's supposed to sound similar to Neckromancer... even that's a little weird when you say it out loud)

James Pond 2 - Codename: RoboCod (Would you ever say "The name is Pond, James Pond" or "Dead or alive, you are coming with me... in a bag."? That made no sense, I'm sorry. *shrug* Actually, the game's not bad.)

Getting a lot of Amiga and ZX Spectrum vibes from this post. I tip my hat.

#36 Edited by Smashbrossive50 (2882 posts) -

And they say that Sonic '06 was the worst,still,I only find one positive side in it.

Metal Gear Solid on NES wasn't really the thrill to be,because it's 8-bit,plain action no doubt.

#37 Edited by Ish_basic (3998 posts) -

@williemanga: XEXYZ (A name I can't pronounce. Decent game, though)

ZEX - eez. And, yeah, pretty fun.

Worst name is Killzone. As it has been pointed out to me a number of times, it sounds like the name of a videogame from TV show like Law and Order trying to do an episode on videogame violence.

#38 Edited by GeoffZak (3715 posts) -

Metal Gear Rising Revengeance

They could've just left it at "Metal Gear Rising" and it would've sounded much cooler! haha

It's still a really great game though.

As someone already mentions, japanse games sometimes have weird titles. Just like magical attacks in anime, they tend to sound rather corny, as if the authors just pick cool english words and combined them. Bravery Default: Flying Fairy is an excellent choice.

Yet Resident Evil is the name that has truly stuck with it.

I nominate Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game Of The Movie for worst title.

#43 Posted by WillieManga (9 posts) -

By the way, it's a matter of name, not gameplay. It doesn't matter whether the gameplay is terrible or decent, if the name is just downright stupid, it's more than qualified to be on this list.

#44 Edited by Boddicker (2488 posts) -

Pretty much a lot of Japanese games.

Horrible names

#45 Posted by Tqricardinho (340 posts) -

Locoroco and Patapon are some weird names.

I don't like the names of:

  • Lumines
  • Virtua Fighter
  • To The Moon
  • Counter-Strike
  • Persona

#46 Posted by Smashbrossive50 (2882 posts) -

@williemanga: for what? Sonic '06? It's music was fine,yet the only lifesaver in that game was Blaze the Cat's role(Japanese recommended)
