5 of your favorite video game subtitles

  • Horizon: Forbidden West is a good one!

  • Guerrilla is gonna just annoy the hell out of people by making titles that sound like they have a colon in them, but never do.
    This game is also subtitle-less.

  • @tokyoslim Nah sorry, time to admit it, Zero Dawn was a subtitle, Horizon is the name of the series ;)

  • @axel a subtitle is a specific thing format wise. You can argue that it's a subtitle because of the graphic design of those words literally being placed below "Horizon" on the cover, thus being literally sub-title - but as far as a proper subtitle, it is not one. You have to separate the Title and the Subtitle, or it's all just a title. :)

    Subtitle - Twelfth Night, or What You Will
    Subtitle - Mario Kart: Super Circuit
    Not a subtitle - Die Hard With a Vengeance

  • Whether or not it meets the definition, "Zero Dawn" is what we might call a de facto subtitle. That is, most people have treated it as such (whether due to misunderstanding or perhaps due to a want for a proper subtitle).

  • I mean, it's a defacto subtitle because it should be one. They are treating it like it is one. It's not, it's just awkwardly titled. All that aside... they did what they did and it's over now. :)

  • Some I like:

    • The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay / Assault on Dark Athena
    • Yakuza 6: The Song of Life
    • WWE SmackDown! Shut Your Mouth!
    • SOCOM: US Navy Seals
    • Hitman: Bloodmoney
    • Life Is Strange: Before The Storm

    • God of War: The Funeral
    • Grand Theft Auto IV: Niko and Roman Do America!
