My Top 10: Worst Game Names



I was never a fan of video games.

Well... I know a bunch of games particular in the NES, SNES, PC, and PSP formats but I am no master. Hell, if this was like a karate belt I’d probably have yellow... or cyan.

Anyway I stumbled upon this 44-second video about the worst video game titles in the uploader’s catalogue. If look for the images of some of these titles, you’ll probably stumble to pornographic images. Some titles are as old as you while others are products of some creator’s wet dreams.

I took the liberty on hunting down the titles if they really existed.

And then I looked at their creators on whether or not they are in some looney bin.

I assumed all of them are in some place that’s happy.

And by the way, contrary to what people think, Wild Woody, Booby Kids and Sticky Balls are great video game names. I also like Wargasm and Pesterminator that I’m saving them off this list.

Game starts now!  


10 IRRITATING STICK
This is in some ways a cool simple game. You basically have a stick and you have to move it inside a course without hitting the edges. The name? Yeah... it’s bothersome. I mean an Irritating Stick could only mean one thing right? *cough* STD *cough* One of the bad things of the game is the guy announcer who really sounds gay.




9 BAD DUDES VS DRAGON NINJA
I mean really? Of all the scary and more impactful names you can think of, you name your heroes “Dudes”? I mean this is also the game where they refer to their head of state as “President Ronnie”. The game looks like Double Dragon in some ways but how can you take this game seriously if you name your heroes “Dudes”?  




8 LEE TREVINO’S FIGHTING GOLF
At the start part of the game, the red part is not blood. Actually I don’t really know why this is called “Fighting Golf”. As far as I know legendary pro golfer Lee Trevino isn’t a brawler. If you check out the game, there is nothing fight-worthy about it. The game’s name is extremely odd. It’s basically naming your baby daughter “Bruno Rodrigo”.




7 NUTS AND MILK
Back when your mother was young and she’d choose for a cartridge to play, it could be this... Mappy, or a random Disney or Sanrio game. I never thought two things that can be seen on a shopping cart can be scary. However, this is not the only food-related title in the countdown.




6 NINJA HAMSTER
Nothing says death to infidels than a very quick and agile varmint. See, any carnivorous animal is scary. An herbivore can be scary if it is big and with horns. Sure, this game was ahead of its time in terms of fighting games but really... a ninja hamster? Also if you see the gameplay you’ll understand that the graphics of the game suits its name.




5 EGGS OF STEEL: CHARLIE’S EGGCELLENT ADVENTURE
The name says it all. There is nothing deranged about an egg holding a wrench working inside a mine. This could have worked if not for the crappy character. Actually I just can’t understand why you’ll make an egg character. I mean... Humpty Dumpty was a major failure, right?  




4 JAMES POND 11: CODENAME ROBOCOD
His aquarium should be shaken and not stirred. Obviously people think naming something from a hugely popular franchise is a good thing. It is not. NOTHING GOOD happens in these scenarios. And yeah, it is really, really believable for a spy fish (?) to use his tail to stand upright.




3 PRINCESS TOMATO IN SALAD KINGDOM
The name is fucked up as its plot. Princess Tomato is kidnapped. King Broccoli’s top knight Sir Cucumber was tasked to rescue the Princess from the hands (leaves) of Minister Pumpkin. I am tempted to believe that the ones who developed this smoked a lot of marijuana.




2 XEXYZ
At least I can understand some of the titles. But this? This I can’t even perceive. This is actually a game about claiming a planet as their newest settlement. They don’t even tell you why they call it XEXYZ. Hell... I don’t even know if this is a word or an acronym! Aside from the crappy name, what’s up with the crappy gameplay?




1 M.U.S.C.L.E.  
I’m going to make this my top choice because I seriously find the name of this game gay. Yes... despite the fact that this was one of my favourite games growing up, the name shows no justice of for the game. Sure, unlike XEXYZ, this is an acronym (actually this is a popular Japanese game) but had I known that M.U.S.C.L.E. actually means Millions of Unusual Small Creatures Lurking Everywhere, I would have not even dared knowing about this! I mean check out the game!




The game was cool! You just thought of random names to fit the word muscle! I can easily do a better acronym for muscle! MAN UNDER SPECIAL COSTUME LION ELEPHANT!   

WHAT THE FUCK IS MILLIONS OF UNUSUAL SMALL CREATURES LURKING EVERYWHERE!?!

By the way, I’d like to thank Youtube uploader WiiWareFan and Game Revolution for my crazy attempt to become computer-smart.

This is all!

Game over!
