** [[VideoGame/MaddenNFL Madden (insert year)]] has often had the derogatory nickname of "Roster Update" due to the fact that other than the rosters being updated per season, it's been a long time since the games have introduced anything truly new.
*** [[MemeticMutation DAT MADDEN]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uyOzzd53ssY Portal Kombat]] - ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'', due to its release date coinciding with that of ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}''. No one could resist the urge to swap letters. (Said nickname is a mutual one shared between the two games.)
*** ''VideoGame/MortalKombat9'' is itself a fan nickname, since the game is actually just called ''[[RecycledTitle Mortal Kombat]]''. This depends on who you're talking to - other communities prefer to call it ''Mortal Kombat 2011''. However, Netherrealm just went with it and called the next game ''VideoGame/MortalKombatX.''
