The brief mention of Club Drive in the top ten reminded me of something. Some games have titles that confuse me terribly as to the nature of the actual game. Somewhere in the back of my head I know it's a racing game but I always think of it as a golf game due to the name. To be fair I don't own a Jaguar, or as SoCal calls it a Jag-warr, and have never found a functional emulator so my experience with the console is very limited indeed.

Another which confuses me is Fatal Frame on the Xbox. Again, I don't own and can't emulate one, so that adds to my confusion and perhaps partially explains why I always think of it as having something to do with ten pin bowling.

The other one that confuses me is Dune II. I know what it is only because it's so well known, so influential and often falsely credited with being the first real time strategy game. To me it's always odd as I did play and enjoy the first Dune game. I cant help but to assume on some level that the sequel would also be an adventure/strategy hybrid.

Does anyone else get these odd game naming confusions?
