The "Take one letter out of a game title" thread
« on: October 20, 2012, 04:44:43 AM »
I remember seeing a screencap of a thread where people talked about the topic. It resulted in some of the most hilarious posts ever:

E.g.

Uncarted - Go around collecting stuff that has fallen out of shopping carts
Ass Effect
Need for Seed - Farmville wannabe
Little Bi Planet - Bisexuals. Everywhere.


So let's see what sort of creativity YOU lot can have!  :bluelander:

I'll start with:

Guardin Legend - You're a wee guard inside a new legend story, will you be remembered or will you be the first to die in the epic finale?

yes, you have to talk about what your new title is about.

Zombies At My Neighbors - Flunked hard. Wasn't near as popular as the sequel "Zombies Ate My Neighbors." You play a kid who spies on the neighbor girl to find out she has zombies at her house. Gameplay lasts about 2 minutes, and the development team would be replaced for the sequel.

System Sock- The all-powerful computer has gone nutz (much like the original ::)) and believes it wears socks... and it also thinks it lost one. Now being insane, it forces you, the facility's janitor, to hunt down the sock or die. Epic point and click adventure ( 1 hour 13 minutes gameplay) with typed commands too!
Gear of War- RTS/RPG, sci-fi/fantasy game! Take control of a black blacksmith in the undertakings of designing and forging arms and armor! Thousands of materiels, hundreds of outcomes! Once you've armed your army, take them to war in colossal battles in space and on land. Lotsa abilities, beard styles, and overall excessive explosions!
Sol Calibur- Earth is under attack from aliens (Inventive, I know ::)) and you have one daring idea to ensure survival: utilize the power of the sun to unleash a serious UV smack down. Defence gameplay, plenty upgradeables, renewable energy source. Build more solar arrays to get more ammo!
Sam and Ax- Same as original... only a little sharper.
Call of Duty: Back ops.- Play as a muscular chiropractor plying your trade. Different techniques, perscriptions, and customers. Get real good and you can do famous people... mabey Morgan Freeman.
Angry Bids- Auction house fury! Play through 6 auction houses, trying to get the best items for your collection! Earn money by investing stuff to sell later!
Dead Pace- You may be a slow, obese zombie, but you have dreams 8)! Subject yourself to a rigorous training regimen and diet to finish marathons! Good things, you rarely have to land in first. Get cool jerseys, epic shoes and other junk related to running. Go for it champ!
