Wanting to evaluate them quickly it dawns on me how mind numbingly simple or out-right useless the names are for describing the game to which they belong.
"Skyrim". Maybe it's about flying, maybe a Skyrim is a high altitude volcanic rim, maybe it's a homoerotic game about rim-jobs or rimming? Wrong on all counts, it's a FPS / RPG hybrid fantasy game about Hansel und Gretel supping mead and slaying bears in the mountains wearing loincloths. This name has so many connotations I can't speak it's name in the presence of a non-gamer.
"The Witcher". "He is a witcher" - Andrzej Sapkowski. The problem here of course is that Witcher is a gender specific term, Witchers are female sorcerers. Well at least they got something right to cater to todays audience, he (the main character) wears a hoodie.
"Depth Hunter". Dearie me, where did I leave that depth? Is this a game about some kid going walkabout with his school ruler? No it's a game about spear fishing, err spear hunting sorry. Went hunting today, bagged a herd of blue cod.
"SpaceMarine". A contradiction in terms. Marines are a mostly amphibious American army corps. Sure there are British Marines etc., but nobody ever uses the term in reference to them. In the game they're not from the USA, they are not even from Earth. What are the odds of an alien race also misnaming their space troopers as "marines" like Warhammer 40k has.
"Sniper". For how many hours did they anguish before uttering this pièce de résistance. Maybe it'll be followed by the beautifully named "Soldier", and then maybe topped off in part 3 with the purely ingenious "Man With Gun"?
"Stormrise". OMG look at the barometer, it's stormrise already and I'm not even out of bed.
"EndGame: Air Superiority" (BF3 DLC). Lets end the war depicted in BF3 (and DLC series) with a DLC pack demonstrating how modern wars are begun. We don't care that we're saying the beginning is the end, we're EA, we are God.
"Warfighter". The airwaves crackle... "And in breaking news war has broken out in Tardistan". "Well honey I'll be seeing you. Sometimes I regret my chosen occupation of Warfighter, but what's done is done".
Kinda hard to click that "Add to cart" button when first impressions are so bad.
Just found these, lol...
As Fawkes (Fallout 3) would say: "Too fun".
