We all love video games, for better or for worse. That’s why you’re here and I hope you’re reading this article. Just like the title of this article itself, a good video game title really draws us in. You want something descriptive that shows what’s new for fans and is a short explanation for people new to your games.
Of course, while a concise title may be ideal, it’s not always the best fun approach. Instead, some games will decide to be a bit chaotic and give us a title that is, frankly, way too long. It’s all part of the charm, because when a game is confident enough to avoid being a title that’s far from digestible, it can only hide wonders.
Updated on June 28, 2023 by Hilton Webster: Video games. Video games? Does it really matter? The ‘video games’ definitely feel longer, as do too many video game titles. Just when you thought the original lineup of these games was ridiculously long, wait until you see these new entries.
10 NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139…
Let’s start with perhaps the easiest game to read on the list, Nier Replicant. The full address will not be re-entered. It’s a pain to pronounce and you’ll feel like you’re trying to do a math equation just by saying it. The most confusing aspect is how to actually rank the game.
It falls somewhere between a remaster and a remake, too expansive for the former but not dramatic enough for the latter. Like all Yoko Taro, this one is confusing and will make you despair. That goes for the title and the story, by the way. At least you will be accompanied by an amazing soundtrack.
9 Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue
Kingdom Hearts is a series that never really should have been. Created entirely from a chance encounter, it was seen as a collaboration between Disney and Square Enix. Then it became more of a playground for Nomura’s original characters, and then Final Fantasy was dropped entirely due to the release of Kingdom Hearts 3.
Despite all this, there is one constant with Kingdom Hearts, and that is the titles of each entry. From the series that gave you Dream Drop Distance 3D, 358/2 days, and symbols that are incredibly difficult to fit into an article (the chi-blade, not the other, more visible keyblade), brings you Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. They never miss.
8 Aerobatic rocket-powered supersonic fighting cars
Pysonix is well known these days for the electric Rocket League, a game that even non-sports fans can get into. After all, who doesn’t love rocket-powered fighting cars that use supersonic power to rush around the field and acrobatically catch a giant soccer ball? No one – absolutely everyone loves this concept.
Pysonix true He actually loves it because right before Rocket League they made a game that was its little known predecessor. This game was Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars. To be fair, it’s a pretty self-explanatory title. The only thing they forgot to mention was football.
7 Half-Minute Hero: Super Mega Neo Climax Ultimate Boy
Half Minute Hero is a wonderfully fun and clever little game. It was originally released as Half Minute Hero before coming to other platforms, with the decidedly long title shown above for its PC launch.
The objective of the game is quite simple – finish each mission within 30 seconds or start over. It parodies many popular RPGs and features an amazing cast of famous composers for your short-lived adventures. It even got a sequel called Half Minute Hero: The Second Coming, which is a much more reasonably sized title.
6 Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Movie Game
Apes, monkeys, apes and the like are beloved creatures that are too often wanted as pets. There’s something so fascinating about an animal that’s basically just human, but with a lot more hair and slightly weaker communication skills. What if this monkey was just huge? Eighth wonder of the world huge?
King Kong has been terrorizing our screens since 1933 and the enthusiasm for him has not waned since then. In recent times, perhaps the most popular rendition of the gorilla is Peter Jackson. As was common for the time, he got a connection to a video game that simply refused to stand on its own two feet. As such, Peter Jackson’s King Kong was born: the official play of the film, a true assault on the senses.
5 Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Road to Boruto
I’d have to be living under a rock if I hadn’t heard of Naruto at this point or I’d be very, very lucky. It’s the ultimate shonen fiction, deeply rooted in Japanese history and Buddhist beliefs, with a power that would make a dragon ball tense.
Although the knowledge available for this Naruto article is incredibly small, it is undeniable that Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 – Road to Boruto is a damn long title, and an amazing one at that. Road to Boruto is an expansion, but at this point it has its own DLC and is often used as if it’s a full title anyway, so it qualifies.
4 Rise of Marc Eck: Limited Edition Pressurized Content
In Marc Eck’s already decidedly vacuous title Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure, you play as a young graffiti artist who uses his talents to stand up to his tyrannical overlords. It is thematically similar to Mirror’s Edge, albeit with a distinctly different visual identity.
If you add a name to your name (Marc Ecko is a fashion designer), you already lengthen it as needed. But the title Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure only makes matters worse. Why was ‘Limited Edition’ added? The game goes with the title to the end, but we can add all the aspects we can.
3 Milk in a bag with milk in a bag with milk and milk outside the bag with milk outside the bag with milk
As a genre popularized by Japan, the visual novel has as many variations as any other genre. Many may see them as simple dating sims (many of which, by the way, aren’t that simple at all), ignoring the likes of Ace Attorney as visual novels or the mash-up style of more recent titles. Then of course there are the milk games. This is a great sentence to type.
The Milk games, fully titled Milk in a Bag of Milk in a Bag of Milk and its sequel, Milk Outside of a Bag of Milk Outside of a Bag of Milk (also called Milk 2), are visual novels about mental health. They go much deeper and may not be as whimsical as the milky title might suggest, but so many things in mental health are never that simple. After all, the point of the game is to get milk. However, they were recently released on the Switch eShop as one collection that is simply…both game titles.
2 Cthulhu Saves the World: Super Hyper Enhanced Championship Edition Alpha Diamond DX Plus Alpha FES HD – Premium Enhanced Game of the Year Collector’s Edition (No Avatars!)
As much fun as it would be to reduce the word length of this article by retyping the title of this game, the editors don’t deserve this torture. Instead, we’ll just call it Cthulhu Saves the World, the title it was actually released under. But it’s official this.
Originally released in 2011, Cthulhu Saves The World actually holds the Guinness World Record for the longest video game title, which seems pretty justified given its length. Despite the name, however, the game is more of a love letter to classic SNES RPGs rather than… whatever the name suggests. It actually has pretty good reviews and doesn’t exist just to have an incredibly long name! However, it was dethroned as the leader of the longest running video game title
1 High School in Summer ★ Youth Record – Summer at School on an Island where I reflect on how I bumped into a childhood friend on my first day after transferring and was forced to join a press club where my paparazzi days were from Great scoops made me made it quite popular with the girls but strangely my camera is full of panty shots and where does my honest romance go
You could just fill the entire entry with the title of the game pasted into two paragraphs, though the editors wouldn’t be too happy with that. On the other hand, there really isn’t much to say about the game that isn’t already explained by its title.
The game was never localized for the west, so the title above is an unofficial translation. Fear not, because the title is absurdly long, even if it is reduced to kanji and katakana. Just look at the picture. This is simply stupid and worthy of respect.
