Oh, there's another one I forgot to mention - Silent Bomber for the PSX. It's so contradictory if you ask me.
Hahaha! There's a game I haven't seen in years. I remember having to stock that game on the shelves, looking at the cover, and thinking that exact thing. "Silent Bomber?! What kind of oxymoron title...."
I dunno, see, I like that title. It implies, to me, someone who stealthily infiltrates enemy strongholds and plants bombs without making a sound.
Sure, the BOMBS make sounds. But you can be a "bomber" and still be silent. Solid Snake does it all the time.
Since the updated remake has just been given a release date (after like, eight years!), I feel compelled to mention the indie Metroidvania "Treasure Adventure Game." Because, like... seriously, were they even trying with that title? The game is actually REALLY good, and I fully intend to play its remake "Treasure Adventure World" (which is a marginally better name, but still pretty stupid)... but, like, "Treasure Adventure Game" is one of the single most generic names you could possibly give your game.
Now, if it were a generic game that was meant to spoof the genre or something, that'd be one thing. Like, if it were the "Scary Movie" of treasure-collecting adventure games, then sure, I'd give it a nod and move along. But the fact is, it's a game with a considerable amount of lore, a pretty decent story, a well-developed world, interesting characters, and some unique gameplay elements that I haven't seen in too many other titles. Yet... it's called "Treasure Adventure Game."
I'm willing to bet a lot more people would've played it if they'd called it something -- ANYTHING -- else.
Funny thing is that it, even though it sounds silly and has nothing to do with the original title, it's actually a rather thoughtful name. It does make at least a little sense within the context of the game's story: As far as I understand it, the hero (presumably the "logic bomb") destroys a computer system from within (a bit like in the movie Tron). Or maybe it's the other way around and the "logic bomb" is what corrupted the system in the first place and the hero gets rid of that?
