Oh! Wasn't even aware this was a "Part 2" haha.
I would have found surprising no one mentioned it before.

Will read that other list, probably as good as this one.
Keep up the good work! :-D
PS4? Yeah sure, I'll get one when I'm done with the 72 games in my backlog.

@C_Clop

Well there's only 2 lists for "The Top 10 Weird Video Game Titles":

https://www.gamefaqs.com/top10/2915-the-top-10-weird-video-game-titles
https://www.gamefaqs.com/top10/3017-the-top-10-weird-video-game-titles-part-2

However, there is "The Top 10 Unfortunate Acronyms Of Video Game Titles":

https://www.gamefaqs.com/top10/2870-the-top-10-unfortunate-acronyms-of-video-game-titles

I wrote that before these two lists, and is in a completely different style to these two. I really cranked up the humourous writing style for that one as an experiment, but a lot of the feedback and votes I received at the time were negative, so it was an experiment that I don't think really worked. I won't be trying that writing style again but the list is still up there for you to read.

Wow, I just got downvoted with the comment "Where's the 1st one?" when I actually included the URL to the first list in the intro. Shows you that users downvote your list for the stupidest reasons that are often the result of them not even reading the list properly so the complaint isn't even legitimate.

@jokrayz the URL to the first list is in the intro to the list, and has also been posted in this thread a couple of times.

Here it is again: https://www.gamefaqs.com/top10/2915-the-top-10-weird-video-game-titles

Thanks.. Not sure how I missed it. having an off day. lol

@WhitePointer possibly an idea for a future list unless you or someone else already did.
Games with either a crappy/weird title or coverart but turned out to be a good/great game.


I actually was thinking of doing a similar list but focusing on the covers only.


That would work. Today it won't matter as much since the internet gives us a ton of info, but thinking back to early 2000s and earlier where internet was limited.. Would be a good one..

Maybe you can do per console or console generation?

Possibly. I'd have to start doing some research.

I mean, how could Natsume not get the obvious real meaning of "scat"?

It's a jazz term. You know when jazz singers start with the weird vocal noises? Like skibidi-bop or whatever? That's called scatting.

It's also been used as a synonym for "scram", "shoo", or "go away".

This other meaning you imply is technically very old (I was surprised to learn it had Greek roots), but was largely used in a more clinical manner (usually in scientific reference to animal leavings); I don't know when it suddenly decided to become the popular slang term it is today, though.

I will be 100% honest, I only knew the term from jazz and like those cartoons with the cats and an old lady is yelling, "scat cat!"

Or old movies where people are like, "let's scat guys!"

Well, that gives "Scat Man" a whole new meaning, lol.
