Name of the Game
Posted on Friday, February 8 2008 @ 05:00:51 Eastern

Is it just me or do games get longer and more ridiculous names with every passing year?

while we used to be happy with asteroids, now we're getting "tom clancy's rainbow six vegas 2"  that's nine syllables just to ask for the box at the game store. i remember the grand ole' times when pc games came in ever expanding box sizes to demand more retail space, the subsequent knocking back down to dvd cases size. and now pr guys are creating horrendously long game titles to compensate the fact the game will in most probability suck.

is it that hard to come up with a shorter title? most of the title in rainbow six vegas is unnecessary, tom's name...gone 3 syllables saved we now only need one dvd slip cover and might even fit a picture.

vegas... gone. who cares is why, about the only thing vegas about the first title was a few missions where you could shoot slot machines. replace slot machines with car bodies and you have RS:detroit.

six is toast, there's only bloody 3 people in the squad.

rainbow gone, lets not emasculate the machismo's buying this protect america drivel.

left with TWO.

makes no sense, there's three soldiers.

scrap the whole project, it's just another little fish in the pond full of barracuda's

see 9 syllables into project cancelled over stupid title. the developer's save a lot of money and get to make something new and interesting instead
