From Dick Butkus to Hootie and the Blowfish to Lake Titicaca, bad names for games have been with us forever. But thanks to the inevitable collision of reclusive nerds, bizarre artists and painfully unhip marketing execs, the video game industry enjoys some of the worst game names of all.
The following game name list was compiled after hours of lively debate, pages of exhausting science and one actual geek fistfight. During this laborious process, we decided to set up a few basic rules:
1. All games must have been wide releases for legitimate, popular platforms.
2. We tried to avoid games heavy on the Engrish. Translation errors are just too easy.
3. So are educational games and ...

Beijing 2008 - Olympic Games Review FunnyGames, August 4, 2008
Beijing 2008 is as much a mini-game collection as Mario Party. Any of the dozens of events may test your skills as a button-masher, Simon Says expert, or rolling motion professional.

Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run (Midway)
We're really going to try our best not to blame The Rock for the human travesty that was DOOM: The Movie. I mean, they didn't let him be the super cool, one-liner spitting badass we know and love, instead relegating him to a ridiculously cliched soldier who goes too far. But despite that misstep, we still love the big lug, and have hope that he may be able to bring a little respect to videogame movies when Spy Hunter
comes out in 2007.
Beating the flick to the punch, however, Midway is hard at work on Spy Hunter
