First, our search feature is much better than I thought. For some reason I felt Ive seen this topic before but....I dont find it.
Why do I believe the things I read on the forumotion boards?
Anyhow.....

So as Monkey and I were discussing elsewhere, there is a very popular quote from Zerowing.
In the poor translation from Japanese to English the very obvious
"All your bases belong to us"

became

"All your base are belong to us."

But this isnt the only poorly translated game. Not only is Zero wing plagued with grammar that would send ETW into a comma, other games are floating out there with badly translated lines.

I can think back to one of the Test Drive games.
Making your way to the start of one of the races, the street racers are confronted with a few squad cars on their way to bust up the good times.
As everyone floors the pedal to make a getaway one of your fellow racers yells.

"The Police! They know about our the test drive!"

So lets see if we can get a good list going of the best worse translations. With all us gamers spanning generations of titles we should have a healthy list in no time.
