I think I tried this one before, but I can't find the list of good ones I made. I remember my favorite was "Boring Guitar at the Olympics." More to follow.

Someone didn't think this through very well. Chocobo was in one of the results I got, and it's a registered trademark.

I got Final Fantasy Dodgeball X, and I think that was probably actually a game.

A couple actually sounded like real (albeit stupid) games. I think my favorite was Depressing Aerobics II.

Hmm. And I also found Phoenix Wright, Mickey Mouse, Batman, and Indiana Jones in there. If they took that stuff out—the stuff that couldn't really be used in a video-game title—it'd be pretty good. Like Magnetic Pirate X-treme or Canadian Outlaw Connection—those sound like good games.

I kept hitting "Make me a another name!" hoping to get to Dicksmash Xavier McIroncock but it never came up. I'm guessing the creator(s) never play Xbox Live.

As I recall. Panzer Icecream Forever had a fantastic range of WWII vehicles but its unrealistic melting algorithm made it nearly unplayable.

Insane Porn Dancers. I know I've seen that.

Def Jam Mall Disaster. Zombie games are so overdone, a crossover with the * Hero games was inevitable.

Full Metal Stapler Choreographer. I...don't even know what this would be. But I want a combination stapler / choreographer now. Or do I want a choreographer that creates stapler dances? Either way.

CELEBRITY FASHION ATTACK. Wow. I'm imagining a game where in Part 1 you choose a teen pop idol and race against time to outfit them in the latest trends, and then in Part 2 there's a Mortal Kombat-esque throwdown where you get to make a coked-up Lindsey Lohan garrot Mary-Kate Olsen with her own slouchy hobo bag.
