Nice series of photoshop funnies if you've ever been into video games. Love the Dead or Alive one:

Yeah, hilarious.

In the NFC Championship Game for four straight years and now they're a joke.

Plus, you don't even know how "american football" is played. Go make some rugby jokes.

I believe the joke is you, snippy.

The humor was in changing the name of the game to "roster update" since that's all the new sports games from EA seem to be every year.

But yeah, the Eagles are a joke too, now you mention it.

Actually, no, you're missing the joke.

The fact that McNabb is on the cover makes "Roster Update" an Eagles joke, because they've lost about half their starters this year to injuries.

I'll be sure to think up something pithy when EA Sports puts a minor league baseball game on the market.

The title of the thread is "honest game titles" not "game covers that later become embarassing, especially if we change a word or two".

The world, such as it is, does not revolve around your team's goofy decision to pay big time bucks to a mental 4-year-old.

And don't worry, there won't be a minor league baseball game from EA any time in the future. There's just not enough 14 year olds interested.

HA! equally applicable to the Ghost Recon and Rainbow 6 games. Most of these weren't that clever, but still pretty funny.
