    Default Longest and Shortest CONSOLE Videogame Titles

    Consoles only, no handheld or PC.

    Off the top of my head I'd have to say...
    Qix
    Advanced Dungeons and Dragons - Treasures of Tarmin

    But I'm sure theres a longer one, and probably a shorter one. Any one letter games out there?

    Well there's

    "D" for several systems including PSX and 3DO. That's the shortest!

    How about:

    Ico (ps2)
    XIII (multi)
    Hulk (multi)


    I know they're not as short as "D" but they're still pretty darn short compared to the average


    Long:

    for the Dreamcast.

    It's not as short as D, but Y's must come in second place.

    Doesn't every Ys game have a subtitle, like Ys: The Vanished Omens, or Ys V: Ushinawareta Sunano Miyako Kefin?

    Xi, the Japanese title for Devil Dice, is as short a name as I can think of aside from D, which was fully titled "D's Diner" or "D no Shokutaku."

    Anyway, here's another one for the long-name list: the Saturn RPG Tengai Makyo: The Fourth Revelation The Apocalype IV.

    the longest one I can think of aside form those listed is for the Gensis:

    "Disney's World of Illusion: Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck"

    a side note, this game rocks for multiplayer cooperative.
    one time collector of consoles...I've had them all, literally. I'm now selling everything to raise money for Northwest Harvest, a charity that provides food and clothing for families in need in the Northwestern United States.

    There was a game called "Z" for the C64 released in 1985, and also a completely different game for the PC was also called "Z" later on.
