Uncharted, Metal Gear, Halo and CoD Get Honest Labels

Titles are important. Let’s face it, we all immediately come to snap judgements on products simply based on titles (it’s what funds journalism after all), so the title of a game could drastically change its sales. With that in mind, the Daily Reaction team of Seb and Dan give well known games new titles based on what they would actually be called if everyone was honest. (Call of Duty: Ghosts, Gears of War 3, Halo 4, PS3, PS4, SimCity 4, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Wii U, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

I would love if publishers did this, in a bizarro The Invention of Lying world

You know Bobby Kotick would be the first one to figure out how, right?
Jayjayff  +   847d ago
The only problem would be that, you know, these are not exactly a good resume of what these games compass. It's just one with a comedic turn, which is the point of the article.

If we were to be in a "The invention of Lying" type world, the title wouldn't take the hit but the description on the back of the box would.

I thought it was kind of stupid. 'Wait to push X'. If everyone was honest, they wouldn't make one of the best games this gen sound stupid and overly simplistic. Heavy Rain, while simple in the controls department, is much more complex than 99% of games.

Also, the term Overrated is idiotic. Obviously, if a game is high rated, then the majority of people thought it was good, so if you don't like it, it means it is 'overrated'??? Stupid.

How about labelling the games that actually do suck? Like the games that are a disgrace to our industry? Aliens Colonial Marines, TWD Survival Instinct, The War Z etc.

I know the point in this was just to target exclusives to get easy hits from fanboys, but all the games mentioned helped shape the industry into what it is today. So IMO it was silly and an insult to our intelligence.

Much prefer a game that makes me just 'hit X' than half the crap reviewers give free passes to.

(As I said, I know what the point of the article was, but it is just fanboy flamebait. We should be criticizing games that deserve it, instead of targeting games of some of the highest quality. Like a Great Wall salesmen saying Ferrari's are sh*t house......sorry but the humour was lost on me).

I am glad you understood the point of a comical article that just pokes fun at games in general, yet still try to analyze it. The fact that you keep pointing out that you understand it really does seem to show, especially since it must be flamebait - given it just pokes fun at games from only one console....o wait, it doesn't.

All games are kind of dumb, get over it.

nice xbox bashing, halo 4 is amazing, and if you are just waiting to press "x" in heavy rain you are missing a great story
stragomccloud  +   847d ago
The article is meant for a few laughs. Try not to take it so seriously.
stragomccloud  +   847d ago
Loved it. We need more positive fun stuff like this on gaming sites. Reminds me of old Gamepro magazines.
AO1JMM  +   847d ago
Dictionary.com/OPINION but the article is meant as humor anyway so it does not matter.
