OP I have to disagree with you on Nippon Ichi, thats like one of the best names ever, seriously. I'm not japanese nor do I know the language, but I think it means number 1 in Japan.

ITT: Every single company name is going to be posted because they all sound dumb to someone.

Hello Games.

They make great games but why "Hello?"
It's probably a play on "Hello World." A simple function that prints Hello World is basically #1 step to learning programming.

I don't mind From Software but CD Projekt Red is just weird and doesn't make any sense to me.

Is there a name that is not dumb at this point? lol
I personally like Polytron, Kairosoft, Intelligent Systems, Data East, AlphaDream Corporation, Studio Pixel, Tecmo, Firaxis Games and Nihon Falcom. They probably sound dumb to other people :p

Yeah From Software takes the prize.

"The new game from From Software"
"From From Software comes this exciting new game..."
"Oh, this game? It's from From Software"


I think Naughty Dog worked well when they made stuff like Crash. Now thet they make games like Uncharted and The Last of Us it kind of doesn't fit

Despite their pedigree "Naughty Dog" has such a stupid name and logo. I feel like it's one of those names where their success was not at all predicted when a couple of guys in the late 80s / early 90s came up with some "random" name in two seconds and now they're stuck with it 20 years later....

(Also this thread is so obviously people just saying STUDIOS they don't like rather than names....)

it seems like every studio is being listed here...oh well gaf gonna gaf

I like Working Designs, Valve, Telltale, and Treasure.

Westwood studios, Sierra, New World Computing are good too.

The Bearded Ladies Consultancy.

And yes that is their real name and also a a real games studio. Not in anyway related to women with any facial hair issues.

CD Projekt - Perfect name for a mostly PC (re-)publisher at the time and place of creation. It's a business project which involves selling CD-ROMs. Duh.

How do you make any sensible studio name that starts with CD Projekt? I don't really think you can. "RED" was possibly the shortest thing that wasn't horrible.
