    Default Funny video game titles?

    What are some video game titles that make you laugh, for whatever reason? Here are some of my favorites:

    Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne
    Dick Vitale's "Awesome Baby" College Hoops
    Beast Wrestler
    World Series Baseball 98 (just for the fact that Sega skipped 97 yet the game came out in 97 and the entire season takes place in 97)
    OutRun 2019 (those developers sure were optimistic about the future huh)
    Super Baseball 2020 as well
    Galaga: Demons of Death (this is identical to every iteration of Galaga Ive played, so I dont know where the demons of death come into play)
    Lee Trevino's Fighting Golf (pretty sure this was the inspiration for a Simpsons parody when Bart asks for Bonestorm but Marge gets him a generic golf game instead)
    Bad Dudes (I dont know how they made that game with a straight face)
    Marc Ecko's Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure Limited Edition (is this the longest title for a video game?)
    Street Fighter: The Movie: The Game (game based on a movie based on a game- amazing!)
    White Men Cant Jump (title itself based on film of same name isnt funny but reviewers back in the day had a lot of fun with it)
    Xenophobe. Who knew bigotry could be so much fun?

    I'm gonna cheat a bit and go with a retro computer.
    I'll go with Fat Worm Blows a Sparky on the ZX Spectrum.
    Questionable title aside, the game is a technical marvel. I would love to see a hacker try to use the engine and port GTA 1 to the humble micro computer.

    For a more traditional choice, my vote goes to Ninja Baseball Batman.
    While it is a great arcade game, it doesn't quite live up to the awesomeness of its name. I wanted a licensed game where Batman starts a Baseball team and has to face the evil Ninja league in Gotham stadium. So much potential...

    If a god is willing to prevent evil, but not able, then he is not omnipotent. If he is able, but not willing, then he must be malevolent. If he is both willing and able, then why is there evil? If he is neither able or willing then why call him a god?

    To be fair its actually just called "Street Fighter: The Movie."

    Unless you're in Japan where its called "Street Fighter: Real Battle on Film." Which is objectively the best name ever.

    Not quite. It's surpassed by:

    'Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. The Soulless Army'

    And the sequel:

    'Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Summoner 2: Raidou Kuzunoha vs. King Abaddon [Special Edition]'

    I'm sure there are intentionally ironic longer titles for some shitty games they were trying to edgey about, but as legit titles go, it's pretty hard to top those SMT titles.

    The NGPC Last Blade game has a ridiculously long title if the Japanese name is translated to English. The Last Blade Romance of the Bakumatsu Special: Swordsman of the Moonlight - On the Moon a Flower Blooming, a Petal Falling.



    The developers must've had a good laugh while having a drink with each other when giving this game a name.
