    Street Fighter EX + a (PS) - - - WT + F??

    Toki - Going Ape Spit (SG) - - - Did a 2-year-old think of that name?

    BurgerTime (NES) - - - Sounds more like a fast food place than a game.

    Shaq Fu (SG/SNES) - - - Lame name, but a kickass game to play!

    Super Mario Brothers Role Playing Game Legend Of The Seven Stars (SNES) - - - (gasps for breath)

    Yoshi Touch & Go (NDS) - - - Eww!

    Banjo-Tooie (N64) - - - "Tooie" is not even a word!

    Day Dreamin' Davey (NES) - - - Sounds more like the name of a Garbage Pail Kid.

    Popful Mail - Magical Fantasy Adventure (SCD) - - - "Popful" ???

    Chiki Chiki Boys (SG) - - - Pronounced "Cheeky Cheeky"...Cheeky? Sounds like a word a gay man would use.

    Mappy-Land (NES) - - - The name gives me seizures.

    Normy's Beach Babe-O-Rama (SG) - - - How could that even be a game?

    Shove It! - The Warehouse Game (SG) - - - I love the name Shove It!

    Star Wars - Masters Of Teras Kasi (PS) - - - WTF is Tares Kosiy-Teris Kasoy-Tetris Nutsack--W/E! I think the title is what ruined the status of this game...you don't put some weird specific name from the Star Wars world in a VG title and expect people to know wtf it means--Star Wars Masters! That's It! There's your game...

    Ninja hamster vs Nazi : correction

    Ninja Hamster 27
    --> Yavol, mein hammenfuhrer.

    "Ja whol" sounds better ;-) Not to be greasy with bad humour, but you managed to spell it in a Yiddish way :)

    ---> And is it me, or is that rodent wearing a Hitler moustache while doing a little Sieg Heil salute?

    I'm sorry, but yes, it is you.
    You are apparently confusing a very common fashionable appearance with one man. Pretty much any serious man in western Europe at the beginning of the 20th century had to wear a moustache that way. Do you think that anyone wearing a large deep moustache is depicting Stalin ? Or maybe, that any pretty woman in a Chinese dress is a living reference to Mao ? Hopefully the next Big Villain is not wearing a ring to the ear, or soon millions will have to drop theirs !

    Besides, a "Sig Heil" bears the arm straight ahead, NEVER on the side. This is a sign of respect from Gladiators (yes, Roman empire, 2000 years ago) saluting Caesar. Throwing the arm on the side is a lethal insult - if you'd ever salute someone, you'd prefer avoiding your own death :)
    Given that, the hamster is more probably opening the sheet with a karate-like atemi...nothing wrong for a ninja, right ?

    So actually, now, I really fail to see what is so bad in that name that isn't worse with "Turtle Ninjas" ? A hamster is still much faster than a turtle in fight :-D

    W00t first post :D.

    A quick flick through the mame archives turns up some real gems:
    Mr Do. and the latter, obviously more frantic sequel Do! Run! Run!
    Diet Go Go
    Savage Bees and the much more entertaining sounding Funky Bee
    Space King
    Target Hits
    Zwackery

    and my personal favorite: Car Jamboree

    I can't imagine it being particularly satisfying after spending two years of your life programming and tweaking your videogame child to have some dork in marketing informing you that the cutting edge game you've finished will be titled "Knees, jelly and cake" so he can win a bet.

    I was working the day "Crusty Demons" came out, and immediately thought it was something picked straight from the devil's nose.

    It's funny because it was around the same time I read the 50 worst video games article and immediately thought that should be on there.

    Name: Total Overdose: A Mexican Gunslinger's Tale (Xbox)

    A BIT TOO MUCH CAN CAUSE VIOLENT REACTIONS.

    From the title of this game, we can comprimise that mexicans will do anything to get ahold of a bit of dope, only to waste it, by getting wasted. And when they're done, the side effects "allow" them to get more, with the help of weapons. Oh boy.

    Here's some I found from Spriter's Resource:
    Samurai Pizza Cats
    Armored Dragon Fantasy Gaiden
    Armored Dragon Fantasy: The Girl Who Dissapeared

    I can't think of anything else.

    Name: Puyo Pop Fever (Xbox)

    THIS POP GAVE ME THE FLU.


    "Puyo Pop" sounds like a japanese version of Coca Cola, only MORE crappier. The fever in this game comes when you get too bored and you decide to fake having diarrhea the next day.

    ______________________________________________________________________

    Name: Otogi: Myth of Demons (Xbox)

    YAH, IT'S ALL IN YOUR HEAD.

    First, what is Otogi? I wouldn't know. But if it's just a myth, that's fine by me.

    Name: Spy vs. Spy (Xbox)

    DUMB VS. DUMBER.

    Watch as two do-do like idiots battle it out to see who can destroy the other one first. It ain't going to be easy. They're both cartoon characters!

    _________________________________________________________________________

    Egg Mania Eggstreme Madness (Xbox)

    EGGS A BIT TOO OVER EASY.

    Mania and Madness all in one. With the side order of eggs. A LOT of eggs. Whoever thought of THIS title had their brains scrambled.

    And a newer game.....

    Name: Marble Blast Ultra (Xbox 360)

    BLAST MA BALLS, BIOTCH!

    Actually, this game is about you, a marble getting through missions in record time, trying to beat everybody else. That's what I mean. But if you did blast my balls, it would hurt. Where are those painkillers?
