The Video Game Name Generator!

Recommended Posts

Someone showed me this a bit ago, and I have been amazed at it.

This thing is the Video Game Name Generator, and I think it is one of the coolest things I have ever seen.

This fun web-app does exactly what it says it does, it generates a random video game name (Video Game Idea Generator, anyone?). Sounds simple enough, but let's just take a look at some of its productions:

Fancy Amish Epidemic
Australian Skydiving Reloaded
Maniac Janitor in the Dark
Drug-Induced Guitar Bastards
Cool Casino - The Lost Levels
Presidential Gimp Jihad
Bionic Jazz Factory
Pro Tricycle Struggle
Demonic Pokemon X-treme
Stealth Mummy Attack
Rad Hang Glider Detective


These are just a few of the choice names that popped out of the generator, and there are many others.

What kinds of awesome names can you get it to output?


EDIT: Also,
"Dracula's Hoedown of the Damned"

Not so much video game names as B-movie titles IMO.

Dead or Alive Combat Police
Def Jam Ping Pong in the Sky
Lethal Zamboni from Hell
Mystery STD Munchers
Revenge of the Wrestling from Hell
Cyber Plumber Saloon
Attack of the Fishing Stadium
Occult Matador Conundrum

Though I'll admit this one would do a fine "edutainment" title:
British Spelling Park

Papal Internet from Outer Space

EDIT: Yeah I keep pruning this post because I keep finding better ones. I'm getting some good oxymorons. Try to imagine their cover art.

"Boring Llama Madness"
"Unremarkable Viking Carnage"
"Educational Indian Hunter"

Some kinky ones:

"Charlie Brown's Nudist Brothers"
"Mary Kate and Ashley's Manlove Warfare"

And I think I might actually be playing this right now without even knowing it...

"Professional Computer Simulator"

- Racing game with scuba divers riding raptors at the bottom of the ocean. Sombreros and ponchos optional.
The Care Bears' Vigilante Rangers
- Spread love and friendship throughout the land... by force.
Ye Olde Army Invaders
- Alternate title: Space Invaders 1000 A.D.
The Castle of Landmine Choreographer
- Shoot your way through a vast dungeon to take on whoever puts all those mines in the ground in Minesweeper.

Michael Jackson's Kangaroo from Outer Space

Cybernetic Prison X
- Shovelware 90s PC game where you're a cyborg shooting his way out of prison, aided by comically bad voice samples.

I agree that there should really be a Photoshop contest. The entries ought to be hilarious!

"John Romero's Drug Dealing Boy"...


Romero's drug warning to gamers must have been faked. Here is a recording of an old "automated mouth" that emulated John Carmack, to get him to say what you wanted. This one is an anti-drug PSA, though maybe not effective.

(The Carmack Automated Mouth was developed by the great guys of Oldmanmurray)


On topic, these game titles are hilarious. And those old boxart images are EVEN BETTER!

What the hell? I can't imagine any games being named accordingly. Don't all games these days have short one to two-word dark/ominous titles?

I've never played these games or even know much about them but shouldn't they all sound like:

Dead Space
Uncharted
Bio-shock
Fallout
Farcry
Assassin's Creed
etc.

It seems like these generated names give a bit more insight into the game's premise than usual modern game titles. But many of them are open to interpretation, of course.

That's a good point, but not all computer games have short and snappy names, especially not over all of video gaming history. What this name generator is doing is parodying the naming conventions of the vast numbers of crappy shovelware games that have been made for the first home consoles, that have been made as "bargain" titles, that have been made for educational purposes, for masturbatory material, etc. It's not too surprising that you can't think of games with names like this, as most are quickly and rightfully forgotten.

You should be able to think of a few, though, because these ugly naming tropes haven't died away, and oddly enough, are still commonly accepted. For instance, most gamers seem able to hear a title as cumbrous as "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2" without flinching.
