Back in the day I remember the NGamer forum confusing Stu into looking for a game called Roranges, which was the nickname for Rayman Origins. I have a few nicknames for games myself, including calling Runner2 'FLORA' and Mighty Flip Champs 'Mighty Sh*t Pants' (which makes its later sequel 'Mighty Bitch Whores', of course! Shocked ).

Do you have any nicknames for games? Share, please!

Mostly from their acronyms, so TWEWY is the obvious one. It's just so fun to say!

There are probably a million other ones that I use much more regularly which are just skipping my mind, but my mate had me calling Tingle's game, the real name of which I don't even recall, Twingo's Big Red Twanger.

I often call Battlefield 4 'Battlefrustration' or 'Battlefreeze'.

During the hundred-odd hours I played Oblivion, that activity was known as "Bliv-ing".
I guess I did the same with Skyrim; Rim-ing OH WAIT NO WAIT HANG ON NO WAIT


I love Little King's Story, but it was "Underage Polygamy Simulator" for a while.

Shut up internet.

Prince of Persia is just "Prince".

My sister calls anything with HD in it "Hardly Different".

And my mum calls here favourite game Enslaved Oddysey to the West "That one I really like. You know, with the.. that one" - because she's really bad at remembering names of things.

On a similar note, to my Dad, Street Fighter IV was "eh, that Tekken game".

The World is Not Enough was TWINE, so a match on The World is Not Enough was "let's have a ball*comedic pause, eyebrow wiggle* on Twine" natch. Mario Kart: Double Dash was "Double Gash" among the right-thinking DD-haters in my friend group! (plus the wrong-minded MK64-haters would call it Sixty-Bore, the scum!). We used to knock a flatmates Tenchu game so much we replaced the sleeve with a crudely drawn one christening it "TenPoo: Wroth of Devon". Finally, can never go wrong among our gang with highlighting the Legends can be said LEG..ENDS every time a game uses it in the title.

I had a moment the other week where my Final Fantasy loving friends were talking about the FF X Hardly Different (10/10 for that one Jimbob's sibling!) release, and asked me what I knew about the game. I said that I'd played it and it was ok, but I hated the main character, that Cloud chap.

I played FFX for nearly 30 hours not 3 years ago!

The epic battle of Jas vs. Balla on the Dark Souls vs. Zelda issue has just reminded me that I called Twilight Princess both 'Twilight Dog' and 'Toilet Princess' (not a fan of TP and still haven't finished it).

Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier is a game I always think of as "Super Booby Robot Fights".
