The Origins of 7 Popular Game Names

Have you ever thought about what a game’s name meant or where it came from? Is the game name significant to the game at all? I (Andrew Otton) think that happens to us all at some point, but mostly we ignore it and get to the game itself. For example, what does Mass Effect mean? It just sounds like two words thrown together to sound somewhat cool. But, that’s not the case as you’ll find out here. (Culture, Mass Effect, Metal Gear, Metal Gear Solid, Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, The Elder Scroll Online, The Elder Scrolls Online)
