It just makes you sound like an asshole.4) Short, sweet, simple is the best. With some relevance to the game. Sometimes Latin works, or Japanese, maybe Spanish.Just make it sound GOOD. Don't try to make it sound SMART, and don't use the aforementioned cliche words of RPG-ness.also: thank Holk of RMRK for oompiling that list of overused game title words, and offering a guide on game titles (this is a short summary/build off of his post)---

It's not a title that you can easily say in conversation, and it is also visually confusing. Because of both of those factors, it is not going to get as much attention as it would otherwise.
Quote from: legacyblade on January 15, 2010, 11:32:37 amBut I do agree with you winkio, the title isn't very catchy. Well in the woods is catchy, but Wruterius isn't. Personally, however, I find three sylable words to be more catchy, provided it's a made up fantasy-ish name (tales of...arcadia, symphonia, phantasia, etc.)
