Just curious, did the game contain those spelling errors? I'm glad to see that most imported games have a lot better translation than they used to... "All your base are belong to us" sound familiar to anyone?
Yes you see this company that released was the england branch of a german software company. Double filtered translation, not good. I just want to know why it was posed as a question?

okay, fix the order (the last two in my quote are switched...). got it. (sadly, I didn't have the game on hand... now searching for actual archive footage of that scene to verify...)

still no worse b-game lines? should we start counting fan-made games like... Transfer Teacher? (sorry, mikey, first game to come to mind that had really weird dialouge (sp?))

Actually, this is flattering! In a way...

I'd say it's because TT is not for everyone. Truly. It's more about the moments of a long-term relationship. And I experienced colleague talks like those first-hand in basically all of my jobs. It isn't really that uncommon. It applies also to the Lai scenario. Sometimes even the strongest women like to show their kiddy, irrational sides. It's cute, but also annoying of course, anyway... enough of this justification.

I'd also point out the various names for certain body parts that b-games come up with... obviously can't mention them, but you know...

Hmmmmm.....

*There's a flower in these parts that makes me so horny*

While not quite as strange a fetish as what TaleWeaver posted, this is a strange one.

Folks, Zero Wing is not a B-game. So posting it leads to immediated disqualification.

Just for the record, I only brought it up only because I was talking about bad translations. I never meant it as a candidate for the worst line

Well, I had a chance to (briefly) play an hour from GinIro, and the "translation", it's more or less incomprehensible. Engrish.com has some good examples as well. My favorite quote from that hour of Giniro which I wrote down for the sake of quoting is "Weakness person must be die." It may have other gems hidden in it though.

Here's the one bad line I can think of:

It's great to use a new 'pen.' - Alice upon discovering the main character is a virgin, I'm Gonna Serve You 4

It's a porn game. YOU figure it out.

Also, "pen" comes from the first three letters of THAT word.

Oh, actually a 'pen' is used quite commonly, even roughly equivalent in my own language... Perverted thoughts seem to be the same all around the world, huh...

Now that I've finally gotten Figures of Happiness... I haven't gotten to the laxatives yet, but OH DEAR LORD all the sex scenes are just painfully, wincingly bad.

I'm *sure* they weren't this stupid in the other games I've owned!

I'm not playing these games for the sex, but with this one I'm having to frantically click through the sex to try to spare my eyes the stupidity and complete uneroticness of them...

I insert my dick.
She moans in pain.
Her honey pot squeezes my unit.

GAH!
