Am I still cool?
I'd like to see "The adventure of the knight who met a king and got a sword and fought the dragon who was bad and rescued the princess and then saved the world by looking at a crystal in a cave and then fought a long and impossible boss because the maker is probably new and even if not is a poor game designer"

I'll bet that game has tons of plot twists.

everything you said up there is totally right, i laughed a little on the long titles thingy, but i think all you said up there really is true. even me seeing a dragon on the game title bores me.

I'd like someone to make a "Game Titles: What to Do" thread, I think it would be helpful (if not as funny). I'd consider doing it, but I feel like my current project's title is flirting with cheesiness as it is. And hypocrasy is a crime if you are even acused of it. *Sigh*

Very apt in any case, Holk.

Just don't do what this thread says and you'll do fine. Make it unique and creative.

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
Oh, absolutely.
But there are some fun tips to create capturing titles. Like...
  • Fragmented prepositions (To Kill a Mockingbird, Until I Find You)
  • Adjectives following nouns as to suggest action (Paradise Lost)
  • The work's motto or theme (All's Well That Ends Well)
  • Alliteration (Palace of Pleasure)
  • Commands (Look Homeward, Angel)
  • Second Person (The World Ends With You)
The last two are especially powerful, as they specifically address something (even better if it is the reader. . . as in "you"). Supposedly titles with direct address are better for marketing.

Yes.

I'll bet that game has tons of plot twists.

What about "The extreme game where the knight goes to a bar and his friend comes in and says there is a dragon killing everyone and he goes outside with a rock and throws it at the dragon which then roars at the top of his lungs then flies away and the knight for some stupid reason gets knighted and the king is killed by a cheese-puff."

Best. Game. Ever.

Nothing personal.
    • Second Person (The World Ends With You)

    Isn't that a Nintendo DS game?

    Hey iv'e always been really good at making original story and if i'm tracking too close
    to some other game some one usually informs me so i'm not worried about that

    even names i feel i'm good at but one problem iv'e always had because iv'e never put forth
    the time is titles. . . .

    so for my new game i have a small list and i was hoping if some people could inform me if they are cheesy or not (Which they probably are) so here we go (FYI: Neverender is a place in the game and if thats cheesy im willing to deal with it because towns people can be stupid some times):
    Nights in the Neverender
    Forever winter nights
    Forever snow
    Cold Knights of the Neverender
    The White swords

    And if some need a small back ground to determine if a names cheesy for some reason
    Summary: A small town forced to fight off vicious dragons wolves and other northern winter creatures, So this small town has several men and women train from when they are kids to grow up and defeat these monsters, but Tragedy falls as your father along with three other parents of your friends go off and die from one horrific beast, So as you grow you try to replace your fallen parents and in a chain of events find your self reaching your skills farther than just your winter wonder land. . .

    also sorry if that sounded a bit cheesy too

    Sonic Dog -> Light Spear -> Overlimit -> Slash
    Forever winter nights

    That sounds a little bit like Neverwinter Nights, but other than that, there's not much wrong with those titles. I would probably suggest rearranging/deleting words, though, but maybe that's just because I tend to prefer shorter titles. I actually think a simple Neverender would suffice; people probably don't know what it means/is, and it sounds ominous enough to draw them in.

    Alright thanks but does it affect the title to add in small things like the or of
    basically is there a difference between
    Neverender
    and
    The Neverender

    As long as you don't overdo it (The Splended Knights of the Neverender who always are of the Fight), articles work. Heh, articles actually add to the effect sometimes, too (Last of the Mohicans). Maybe experiment with that. Picking a title is like photography: take a bunch of pictures & then pick the best one.

    Nights in the Neverender - No
    Forever winter nights - Neverwinter Nights
    Forever snow - Not bad, but a bit generic
    Cold Knights of the Neverender - No
    The White swords - Zelda

    "Forever" is a generic word to use in any title, and Neverender is a Coheed song.
