Resident Evil. Fit the first game perfectly, but has become less and less relevant to the series with each new game

Final fantasy
If its final why are there so many of them
Why I ask yas
WHY ?
WHY ?
Same with final fight
Why put the word final if its not the last one
That makes it as final as the last Rolling stones tour

Head Over Heels was a great game title, especially considering the gameplay.

I also thought Shadow Of The Colossus was a good one.

I nominate 'Magical Flying Hat Turbo Adventure'.

Not only was it a title of sheer Jap insanity, it was also a grand example of exposition. The game did, in fact, revolve around a magical hat that allowed some form of flight in an adventure. Not sure about the turbo part, but it probably helped.

Following that lead, 'Rise of the Robots' would have been called 'Steaming Pile of Crap'.

Also, there was a budget Speccy game called 'Mutant Fortress'. This was the launch name. If memory serves, the original name (as appeared in mag previews) was 'The Muties Stole my Truck'. Genius!

For sheer surrealism, I'll finish off with Mastertronic's 'Nonterraquous'. Pure baffling greatness.
