You know, the ones that make you go "WTF were they thinking?" or "WTF does that even mean?"

Titles like Infinite Undiscovery. I mean, they even made a word up for it! It literally makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, but of course, people will lap it up like Square-Enix's lapdogs.

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep

I don't get it. How can that possibly relate to anything in any game ever? Utterly baffling.

Too Human.

What? It doesn't seem to have anything whatsoever to do with the game's content.

Yes it does, Baldur has far less cybernetic enhancements than the other 'gods' and is thus considered too human.

It's really called Infinite Undiscovery?

I always read it as 'Discovery' :shock:

Peter Jackson's King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie

It's just too long and obvious.

Really? Infinite Undiscovery is where you're taking a stand?

What about Legendary: The Box?
The utterly meaningless FEAR: Orpheus Mandate?
Or F.E.A.R itself, and other stupid backronyms.
Melty Blood: Act Cadenza?
OneChanbara: Bikini Zombie Slayers?

Code Geass - Hangyaku no Lelouch R2 Banjô no Geass Gekijô

Lon Q! Highland in DS Pu-pu- Seijin Arawareru! Deketsu Dai Service! Onara no Saiten

Ad infinitum.

Valkyria Chronicles seems to be another offender. I've had a skim through the Wiki entry for the game and there appears to be no reference to any "Valkyria" of any kind in the game which might be chronicled... which makes me wonder what the point of it is.

Okami's not a made up word, it's Japanese for 'wolf'. It fits, what with you playing a wolf, and what with the game being an amalgam of several Japanese folk tales.

As for daft names, I'd like to mention all those crap soldier based FPSs. What was that one a while ago, Alpha Black Zero: Intrepid Protocol. That is bad.
