I love this thread! I don’t have any fake game names, but I will highlight some great examples from folks I like.
The first is from Shawn Elliott back when he was at GFW Radio (any other fans of the brodeo in the house?) He created a fake PR company called “Merchants of Cool” and then interviewed a bunch of people outside of GameStops to get their takes on some fake games. I can’t find the video (I think it was on an episode of The 1UP Show , if anyone knows where to find archives of that), but here’s a transcript from an archive: https://web.archive.org/web/20090226064531/http://www.1up.com/do/feature?cId=3168383
The fake game names were Founding Fighters: Battle for the Constitution, Tender Rondo: The Delicate Saga, Duty Calls, and Plagues of Egypt.
The other thing I want to share is a zine made by some friends called Video Killer Magazine. They only did one issue, but some of my favorite fake games they review are called There’s Something in the Woods, Jump a Third Time, and Titty Punch. https://issuu.com/asiansteev/docs/video_killer_magazine_0001
