This week IGN is counting down the worst (or most awesome, depending on how you look at them) videogame character names. Some are innocent titles that sound obscene, some are great examples of lazy writing, and some just make you go, "...huh?"
Great find. It has Mortal Kombat! and Saibot is kool. The only real problem I have is Boogerman which is an awesome name IMO (Loved the game).
saibot has always been my favorite mk character, i think it was stupid how they combined him and smoke into one character in deception. and like riotsquad said it was a sweet name until it started getting used excessively by prepubescent kids on xbox live and counter-strike.
Jumpman was pretty bad Wild Woody lol and seaman.......
Wasn't that bad use to be kinda kool until everyone started over dosing on the word noob.
ya i loved booger man!
ToeJam didn't make the list? It's every bit as bad as Boogerman, in more than a few ways.
I really haven't laughed out loud in a while, but couldn't help it with this gut-busting list. There all good to me. Walk Guy!? LOL XD -- "Never mind that Philbright is right up there with Poindexter as one of the dorkiest names ever. Never mind that Westriverside and Warehouserock are both triple compound words. What is most surprising is that there were 25 Philbright Westriverside Warehouserocks before this one! Another contender from Fist of Mars: Cage Midwell." -- Great find.
What about Deepthroat in MGS? It's a cool character, but the name Deepthroat makes me think of other things than stealth...
Noob saibot is an awesome name! WTF?
