Tell Us Dammit

Dammit, we want you to tell us stuff! Stuff like your pick for the worst named game ever.

This isn’t some marketing survey or whatever. It’s an emotional investment in you. Yes, we’re interesting in knowing you, Kotaku reader person. You probably know fucktons about us — more than you even want to, we’re sure. But, hey, we’d like to know about you, too.

Anyway, here’s today’s question…

Bonk was an old side-scrolling platformer starring a bald kid. Hudson Soft has just announced a new Bonk game for XBLA, PSN and WiiWare. It's called Bonk: Brink of Extinction. It's quite possibly the worst named game ever. Can you think of worse?

Me? Did I mention that Bonk: Brink of Extinction is quite possibly the worst named game ever? Oh, I did.


    wow i remember bonk, but not well enough for them to play the fond memories card on sales.

    terrible game names tho, defiantly quackshot: starring donald duck what the hell is a quackshot?

      A "crack shot" is skilled marksman.

      Donald is a duck. Ducks are known (in western countries at least) for making a call that is written as "quack".

      A central gameplay concept of the game involves shooting things.

      If you can't figure out the rest, then I probably just wasted 2 minutes.

    Good Luck Goemon - The Dance of the New Peach Mountain Government.

    I'm going with 'Alex Kidd: High Tech World' for the Master System. Combine that name with the typical Master System artwork, and you've got all the ingredients for a good ol' facepalming.

    "grabbed by the ghoulies" springs to mind

    no comparison to Nintendo: Touch Dic

      "Dic" is the imperative of the 3rd conjugation Latin verb "dico" meaning "I speak" interestingly it has an irregular imperative form becuase other 3rd conjugation verbs will have imperatives ending in "e" such as "posce". Although I'm sure it's just a coincidence in this title. Good thing they didn't use "facio" though.

        Your over analysing it it, Dic refers to dictionary.

    I'm just gonna go out on a limb here and say all of the SNES games which had the word "Super" in them, especially ones that were sequels of original NES games. Come to think of it, anything that tacked on "64" to the end of the name for the Nintendo 64 was also just as stupid.


    an honourable mention to disaster: day of crisis and run like hell, easy meat for cynical journos.

    My pick for worse name: "Bonk: Bring of Brextinction."

    anything with 'z' at the end instead of an s

    only one I remember playing was 3D Ballz - that game scared me for life

    Hate to dump on the origins of gaming... but "pong"??

    how about...
    the ds title...
    project rub...
    just leaves a little bit up to your imaginations.

    Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing.

    You'd need to play it to understand...

    Pickle Wars.... come on a game where the main enemy are pickles just speaks for itself

    " Warhammer : Shadow of the Horned Rat "

    Um, Wet. mainly because it has nothing to do with water really.
    Lips. WTF?
    Impossible mission. A low budget game ripping of mission impossible.
    Ninja reflex. It just sounds stupid.
    Zombie virus. Those are just bad.

    Just how much crap can you add on to 'street fighter'?

    Holy Invasion Of Privacy Badman: What Did I Do To Deserve This? or HIOPBWDIDTDT as ive seen it shortened to has to be the worst for me,

    bonk: brink of extinction actually has a nice ring to it i think

    Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater.

    Don't get me wrong - I absolutely love the game itself, as I do all of the MGS games.

    But "Snake Eater"? There are just way too many unpleasant connotations there.
